Mythos Tokens stemmed from our desire to have a more thematic and stunning experience while playing Arkham Horror: The Card Game. When designing these sets, we were focused on minimizing the tokens on the board and making sure that those tokens perfectly blended into the other assets (card borders, icons, art style, etc) present in the game.
The Health and Sanity tokens bring unbelievably complex artwork to the foreground, making it all too visceral as each Investigator descends into injury and madness. Translucent acrylic, in dark red and dark blue respectively, make each token shimmer recognizably, while numbers on each side add an additional layer of clarity from across the table. A 1-side/2-side flip makes tracking as convenient as possible, and squared cuts allow for easy alignment, keeping everything tidy.
Translucent, dark green Resource tokens feature a clear numeral adorned with a highly detailed, universally appropriate border. Whether representing money, influence, connections, or arcane power, the Resource token makes calculation and decision-making as unambiguous as possible. Easily flip between 1- and 3-Resources, and watch as the border changes to accommodate!
The Clue/Supply token not only represents clues in a complex, enthralling way, but also introduces a new dimension to the game with its Supply side. During play, we were always pining about which stock tokens to use on cards with “charges” – everything from Flashlight to Shriveling to a .41 Derringer. Nothing seemed appropriate, and Resources sitting on assets was especially confusing.
We designed the Supply side and placed it on the flip of the Clue to solve this problem. The detailed motif introduces elements that subtly represent various interpretations of “supplies”, and we often use them to mark damage on certain monsters – it looks like they are being blasted back into their own dimension. Additionally, the pearly-white acrylic shines in bright contrast to the darkness found throughout the game and the rest of the Mythos token set, which clearly demonstrates the positive in-game effects represented by both designs.
By divorcing the Clue and Doom designs from each other, we were able to give the latter a proper representation on infinitely deep opaque black. The blood red paint fill and intimidating size appropriately complement the feeling of “pending dread” created by the lunar phasic artwork, and its convenient flip to 2-Doom causes the “clock is ticking” sensation to fully sink in.
Here are a few more reasons why we love them:
- Art-forward designs create a more engaging (and dreadful) story, every time
- All tokens are double-sided, and easily flippable between their higher and lower number
- The borders of each token become more complex as they are flipped to their higher number
- 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
Every token is covered with adhesive protective paper to prevent cosmetic damage during shipment, so peel them before use!
