Mythos Boards were created to solve the problem of 1) ever-expanding locations in Arkham Horror: The Card Game that create a restrictive and cluttered play experience, 2) Investigator card art and text being hidden by tokens, and 3) lack of a clear definition between the general token pool and the tokens belonging to each player.
We were so tired of our Investigator card being covered up by multiple Health and Sanity tokens, with Clues and Resources scattered alongside. Once our Investigators were clearly raised above the rest of the action and everyone’s status easily tracked, our Arkham campaign became infinitely more enjoyable.
The Innsmouth Mythos Board is our sixth player board, and we knew immediately that it needed a real physicality to it; essentially like a blood soaked / red tide-inspired drift wood. We took the lessons learned with the Forgotten Mythos Board and applied them to the Innsmouth Mythos Board, creating another board that feels like a relic pulled from the fiction itself. You’ll find myriad references to the Innsmouth / Shadow Over Innsmouth source material, references that would also later appear in the Innsmouth campaign of Arkham Horror!
You can see this board revealed and in-use during a playthrough of Dream-Eaters 4a – Where Gods Dwell.
Here are a few more reasons why we love them:
- Token sets are rigorously playtested in real games for balance in theme, function, and feel.
- Art-forward designs create a more engaging story, every time
- All tokens are double-sided, and easily flippable
- Laser-cut to exceedingly precise measurements, with intricate border textures
- Engraved and hand-filled with high-contrast paint on both sides
- Striking colors provide easy recognition and comprehension at a glance
- Will not bend, warp, or fade over time
- Made from the highest quality acrylic available
- Designed in-house at Covenant in Tulsa, OK
- Manufactured in small batches in Tulsa, OK
Each Mythos Board perfectly fits a sleeved Investigator card (we tested with both Ultra Pro and Dragon Shield), five 1-Health/2-Health Mythos Tokens and five 1-Sanity/2-Sanity Mythos Tokens. The Health Tokens and Sanity Tokens can be vertically flipped between their 1 and 2 side via the openings on the top and bottom.
Each board also contains a general token basin designed to fit Clue/Supply and 1-Resource/2-Resource Mythos Tokens. The boards can be rotated so that this basin appears on the left or right, depending on your preference.
The boards are cast from resin and backed with felt.
The appearance of your Dream Mythos Board may vary ever so slightly from the renderings and images shown here due to color variations in displays, cameras, resin, and wax. Note that because they are resin, Mythos Boards may warp if left in hot places for a long period of time (a car in the summer, for example). If this happens, heat it up again, lay it flat with a heavy object on top (like a book), and let it cool. Problem solved!
Mythos Boards are third-party accessories produced and sold exclusively by us. Though compatible with Arkham Horror: The Card Game, they are not associated with or officially endorsed by Fantasy Flight Games, Asmodee, or any other entity.
