Little Box of Monsters

Recommended Posts

How do you handle the monster cup?  I initially used an "opaque containter" as suggested in the rules and then switched to a drawstring bag from another game (either Carcassonne or Alhambra).  I had some time on my hands today (wife/kids with Nana) and put together a "Little Box of Monsters."  I made it out of foam board and pasted Arkham pics on the sides.  The tops seals tight and the inside is lined with felt so I can shake 'em up.  I posted three pictures of the monster box below (links to photobucket).  Is this excessive (evidence of gamer OCD)?

I'm interested to hear/see what other players use for the monster cup.

I use a very awesome, double-fabric, custom dice bag made by Marsbarn (over on marsbarn.etsy.com).  Cost $15.  Pictures on BGG:

www.boardgamegeek.com/image/510262: Yellow Sign was given as a JPG.  Sewed on in felt.  Had to tweak to the side to fit...but I feel it looks a bit more crazy that way, as if spray-canned onto the side of some building.

www.boardgamegeek.com/image/510264: Every monster chit from every expansion, including Spawn monsters.  Only half full: plenty of space for more.

Folds flat right on top of the Innsmouth board for storage.

Can you get the Marsbarn bags in gaming stores or are they just available online?  I play D&D as well and was thinking about buying one of their dicebags but prefer to handle it before buying.  They look great and I just did a quick google search and found one with an eldar sign:

Only online from her website, as far as I know.  (She makes them herself.)  I bought a second bag from her for my polyhedrons as well.  As for your preferences, I can only say I am COMPLETELY satisfied with both bags.  Trust her feedback.  If you want one, you will NOT be disappointed.

That is an awesome box. I wish I had one. To answer the question, I just use a Crown Royale drawstring bag. 

Same here. I really like the deep purple, too. Unfortunately, the drawstring has come out and then the cat ate it because he is an ass.

I use a black plastic witches cauldron that I got at BigLots for $1.50.  I really dig the Monster Box though and I think I'm going to try and make one for myself.  Looks Awesome!

I just use the King in Yellow box to hold all my monsters, it easily fits the monsters from every expansion, and I use the black goat of the woods box to separate out all the mask and spawn monsters. Not nearly as creative as any of the custom ones, but it's a quick fix.
