Utilities

This page is devoted to utilities that you can use to make the game easier or more fun to play.

Universal Head’s Rules Reference and Player Aid

The most useful utility for Arkham Horror ever made. So fundamental that I even listed it before the FAQ.

Small Board

Struggling for table space? Not if you use this board…

Anti-Dilution Table

If you play with multiple Arkham expansions there exists the possibility that one board receives all the action whereas another one is practically ignored. Although this might adequately represent the indifference of a cosmic universe, it doesn’t make for a very good game, and whilst the problem is effectively resolved with the Miskatonic Horror expansion, those without it will need to come up with another solution. Thankfully, if you’ve got access to a deck of playing cards, this shouldn’t be too tricky to resolve…

Play Mat

A play mat will help you organise your investigator and their equipment in a timelier fashion. Two sample play mats are given below.

Mythos Tracker

If a play mat is designed to organise your investigators, the Mythos Tracker helps you organise the Mythos cards.

Hypnos Alternative Location Track

This utility is somewhat redundant with the Miskatonic Horror expansion, but those playing with other boards who do not have that expansion may find it invaluable. Whenever you draw a Hypnos card, check this card as well. If the card indicates a location on a separate sub-board roll a dice. On a 1-3 use the result in the left hand column, on a 4-6 use the result in the right hand column instead.

Martial Law

Has martial law been declared in Innsmouth yet? Now you can tell at a glance. Place this double-sided token at the centre of the Deep One Uprising Track (between the Fed Track and Deep One Track) with the Stars and Stripes side upwards. Flip the token to the Ctuhlhu side once Martial Law has been declared.

Scoring Log

Want to keep a history of your triumphs and disasters against the Mythos. You’ll be wanting a Scoring Log then. And you might want to look at the Arkham Horror Achievements whilst you’re at it!

Thematic Investigators

Ever get fed up when Sister Mary begins play with a flamethrower, whilst Michael McGlen begins play with an esoteric tome and the Library Use skill. These notes are designed to avoid that situation.

Money

It should go without saying but, just in case there is a lawyer with a common-sense bypass reading this, this money is not legal tender!
