Arkham Horror LCG storage solutions

We’re looking to add to this list over time, so if you have a storage solution, contact us at hallofheroescontact(at)gmail.com! Not all entries will be accepted.

Your first step should be searching for Arkham Horror LCG on Etsy.

Check out our Marvel Champions LCG storage solutions article here!


Card storage

A 3-inch binder holds all player cards for Lord of the Rings LCG, which is an eight year old game. All Arkham Horror LCG player cards to date are also comfortably stored in a 3-inch binder.

Dividers are used to separate each class type (this set gets you every single aspect color, with white used for neutral cards and pink or Mystic). A note: you may want to go 4-inch just in case.

We here at Hall of Arkham highly recommend the Artist’s Case/Broken Token solution to store your cards.

Encounter/player cards can be stored in the “Artist’s Case” from Hobby Lobby, which will run you $24.99 on sale (it’s almost always on sale). You can also look for coupons, which work online.

The next step is to pick up a Broken Token insert (or any insert) for the case. As you can see with the above image that has all of Arkham Horror’s encounter sets up to Dream-Eaters (all deluxes and mythos packs), as well as standalone scenarios stored, there is plenty of room to grow.

Daydream Gaming also sells special boxes themed around campaigns.

You can locate their storefront here.

Harbor Freight sells a reasonably priced aluminum case that you can use to store cards.

Matthew Ellgass went all-out for their storage solution.

They used the Hobby Lobby artist case with the Broken Token insert pictured at the top of this blog, but they also used “Return To” boxes for storage as well as Arkham Nights event boxes. The Hobby Lobby faux leather trunk (editor’s note: Home Depot and other stores sell cheap faux trunks too) was utilized for token and deck storage, with glass jars from Hobby Lobby for token storage.

The boards and tokens are from Team Covenant, with the deck boxes from Elder Dice. The Chaos Token bags are from FFG or Arkham Nights. They also used coin capsules (26mm) for tokens.

You can also make your own tuck boxes.

Most of these products are featured below, or linked above.


Portable bags/backpacks

These tend to run on the pricey side, but if you’re constantly going from place to place, they can do the trick. We’ve tested out the Enhance Backpack, and have found that cards stay very snug when walking around.

Another option is the Pirate Lab card case.


The Cards Against Humanity Big Box

This huge box is also an option for people who are looking for a higher quality way to store their cards.

You can find it for $14.99 on Amazon.


IKEA storage

Several community members have recommended the “Moppe” box from IKEA. It’s a cheap $20 wooden box that allows for card storage.


Plain old plano or card boxes

The perfect storage solution for anything, even Gloomhaven and Marvel Champions! Plano Boxes will do the trick for storing tokens and bits.

You can go even cheaper for card storage and buy cardboard boxes for a few bucks.

StoneMaier Games sells cheap plastic resource containers specifically made for tabletop games.


Dividers

Tesseract Games has a great dividers storefront on Etsy.


Printable backgrounds

Francisco Owens managed to craft this stunning background, which can be swapped out for each campaign.

To craft them, they used these bases, then printed them on two 11×17 sheets on a color printer: sticking them together, spray-mounted on cardboard.


Playmats

There are official FFG playmats for Arkham Horror LCG, but they are almost always out of stock.

Try additional storefronts like MomoMonsterCo, which produces playmats like the one you see above. Inked Gaming also has some appropriately themed Arkham mats.


Playmat storage

You can grab tubes like these on Amazon or most gaming stores.

Check out all of the official playmats for Arkham at the bottom of this page.


LEGO Investigators

Community members have come up with an ingenious way to manually order LEGO investigator figures by choosing select parts.

You can find the spreadsheet from community member Antimarkovnikov here.

Investigator Minis

PerfectStores sells miniature investigators, but many retailers will print custom figures if you can get them a design.

You can print a few of your own here.

Investigator Standees

You can 3D-print your own standees rather easily!


Token storage (and Chaos Bags)

Douglass Ladd crafted their own themed token jar storage for Arkham Horror LCG.

They used containers from Hobby Lobby, designing the labels in Adobe Illustrator, printed on laser color print, applied with a 3m mounting adhesive.

Many Arkham Horror LCG community members purchase “coin capsules” to give the Chaos Tokens heft. Although there is a debate as to what the best size is, many have settled on 26mm.

I personally use these 25mm capsules, and although they are a tight fit, they work for me.

You can find all sorts of Chaos Bags on Amazon or Etsy, but this one with the all-seeing eye is by far my favorite.


Campaign books

This might be my favorite custom content idea of all: campaign books.

Community member Antimarkovnikov has found an easy solution for printing your own campaign books using text from the inserts provided by each deluxe box/mythos pack run.

One of the easiest ways to get them printed is through Barnes & Nobel Press, novella size. Create an account, then select “create a new book,” and “keep it personal.” Page sizes are 6×9, with interior print color black/white and hardcover with printed case. Prices per book range from roughly $10 (Night of the Zealot) to roughly $25 for the last few cycles.

You can find the Google Drive for them here.

There is also another Google Drive project here.


Tokens

Buy the Same Token

Buy the Same Token crafts some of the best tokens in the tabletop business, and they have an extensive Arkham Horror LCG line.

You can find their Arkham storefront here.

Aurbits

Aurbits are high quality fiberglass tokens and some of the most decadent things you can purchase for LCGs.

You can find Arkham Aurbits tokens here

Burger Tokens

Burger Tokens are one of the cheapest options you can buy because you assemble the tokens yourself with pennies.

Everything you see above will run you $25 before shipping. You can find their storefront here.

Dracula’s Tokens

For many years, Dracula’s Tokens (or Drac’s Tokens) have been my go-to choice for every LCG on the market.

You can find their store here on Etsy.

Daydream Tokens

Daydream is a great middle-of-the-road token option that sells several unique offerings, like location tracking tokens.

You can find their storefront here.

Team Covenant

Team Covenant has been one of the longest supporters of Arkham Horror LCG and has built up an expansive storefront of products at this point; including boards and tokens.

You can find their Arkham Horror LCG store here.

Make your own

Although the above image is Marvel Champions LCG related, Make Your Piece Games has a great blog on how to craft your own professional looking tokens.
