So I'm assuming, due to a problem we had with a late-campaign haunt, that the family crest tokens were intended to be blank on one side? The ones in my box show the crest on both sides of the token, which presented a problem with our specific haunt as we were supposed to turn them over so that the crest was initially a mystery.

Not sure which haunt you are referring to but my Crest Tokens are double sided (no blank sides!)

Yes. The crests were supposed to be one-sided and the error slipped through. The designers and writers have gone through the haunts and we believe all the haunts will work with the current tokens, although you lose some elements of surprise.

For the late haunt in question, we were able to fix the problem and preserve the mystery by substituting some of the numbered tokens that were not visible face down and making a chart (5=green, 6=yellow, etc.) Preserved the haunt just fine.

You could try applying sticker paper (if you have it on hand) to the back side of each crest token - this is the method I use, and it works well.

Or sharpie the back side of each token black.

If anyone knows of some small plastic sleeves I can put the crests in please let us know. Opaque on one side would be best but I can slip some paper in there to cover one side. I would prefer to play the haunt as intended without permanently modifying the crests.

This is kind of the method we used, we just placed the crest tokens on the number track and used those numbers face down.

Or you could put the tokens in a bag and draw one like you do letter tiles in Scrabble.

We drew them secretly and covered them with an item pile token so it was covered and we couldn't see.
