I created this GeekList for two purposes: firstly to serve as a reference for myself when I'm putting together my Arkham Horror boxes to take over to my gaming group's meeting (I prefer to assemble the decks before I arrive as it speeds things up on the evening) and secondly, I can point people to it when they ask the "which components should I use together" questions on the Arkham Horror forums.

This is how I use the various components from the expansions that I have. It's not the "right" way to do it, it's just the way that I do it (at the moment). Please note that I'm not proposing these as Variants for you to use (there's a Forum for posting and discussing Variants), rather this list exists as a reference for how my group plays. Nevertheless, I've left the list open for public comments, so feel free to add constructive feedback.

Recently, I've begun to wonder whether I should leave out the Miskatonic Horror Mythos cards unless I'm running with multiple expansions. I know that MH is particularly designed for multi-expansion use and I'm seeing very active expansion boards when there's only the one board in play along with the MH Mythos cards. I'm considering whether playing a single board expansion along with MH Mythos might actually constitute an increase in difficulty from the Standard game. I'll play a few more and then make up my mind.

Currently, I have the following expansions:

Arkham Horror: Dunwich Horror Expansion
Arkham Horror: Kingsport Horror Expansion
Arkham Horror: Innsmouth Horror Expansion
Arkham Horror: Miskatonic Horror Expansion
Arkham Horror: The King in Yellow Expansion
Arkham Horror: The Lurker at the Threshold Expansion
Arkham Horror: The Curse of the Dark Pharaoh Expansion (Revised Edition)

I don't own Arkham Horror: The Black Goat of the Woods Expansion so it's just a placeholder at the moment (update: I now own BGotW, but only have one game under my belt, so it's early days)
Also, I own the revised version of Arkham Horror: Curse of the Dark Pharaoh Expansion so I haven't included the setup for the original version.

As well as using these setups, I have a standard set of Variants that I use. I have a GeekList for those too Arkham Horror: Variant Rules used by mccrispy

If you see text in green then it's a link to either another part of this GeekList, or to the companion GeekList for Variant rules
