Page for tracking all the Gloomhaven resources I've used for the game. Obviously, all this stuff is optional, but you guys asked what I used so you get it all to make your own decisions. :)

Game Resources

Cephalofair (Isaac's company) website and blog

Boardgamegeek.com game page - Forums and Files sections are the most useful

Official FAQ forum post - super useful, and still double-check this often

Note that the BGG page's "Files" section has a ton more resources people continue to create, so you can browse to find if you want to track things differently than I do. I'll list the main ones I use or have considered below.

Interactive PDF map - can use instead of the game board

Scenario flowchart - laminated a copy of this as a simpler tracker

Interactive character sheets and scenario flowchart - another interesting tracker, though I don't use this one

Interactive PDF scenario book - alternative to scenario book where everything is hidden as you go

Milestone/prosperity tracker - laminated a copy of this to use for tracking instead of the game board/book

Extra modifier deck - in case you need to expand to 5 or 6 players like I did... you'll also need small sleeves (see the guide noted later on)

Rules index - pretty handy to find rules quickly when still learning

Rules summary - might also be handy when learning, but came out a bit late for me to take advantage of

Online enhancements calculator - haven't used this yet, but looks handy

Gloomhaven Monster AI Android app - looks like the monster AI deck app Rob used

GloomyCompanion online app - web-page monster AI deck app that might work ok

Arcane Library - pretty new web-based app with all sorts of tracking capability

Gloomhaven Campaign Tracker - info on another campaign tracking app (work in progress)

Component Upgrades

Mediaxpo Brand 100 Black Paper CD Sleeves with Flap (No Window) - CD sleeves for monster storage

Avery Sticker Project Paper, White, 8.5 x 11 Inches, Pack of 15 (03383) - inkjet printable sticker sheets for monster sleeves (BGG file to print is here)

Chessex Dice d6 Sets: Frosted Clear with Black - 12mm Six Sided Die (36) Block of Dice - small dice for tracking monster health

Dungeon Saga Furniture Pack

Dungeon Saga Doors Pack

Counter Tray - GMT Style 2 Piece - available in 10-packs from GMT games directly if you want for other games, too

Metal coins - tons of options out there... this is one example site which sells the Lira set I got years ago with a different game

Accordion folder - something like this for holding tiles... Mike gave me one, so just linking to a random one similar to it

200 Ultra-Pro Clear Deck Protector Sleeves 2-Packs - Standard Magic the Gathering Size (1 Pack) - card sleeves... you can see this BGG page for info on how many (I think I ordered 3 packs of 200 to cover just the character cards)

Daedalus epic (expensive) box insert - I don't have this, but it looks kind of crazy-cool if you want to get this to organize the game instead of what I did

Army Painter Laser (line version) - for easy line of sight checks

Twist-on LED tea lights - easy way to track when people are done selecting cards (got a 20-pack, so can probably grab a few of mine)

Laminating Stuff

Not necessary, but I've found these super handy for lots of games...

Scotch Thermal Laminator 2 Roller System (TL901C) - laminator for dry erase capability (here's a cheaper Amazon Basics option)

Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches, 8.9 x 11.4-Inches, 3 mil thick, 100-Pack (TP3854-100) - laminating sheets (one sheet fits two character sheets, so don't really need 100)

EXPO Low-Odor Dry Erase Markers, Fine Point, Assorted Colors, 12-Count - though any dry erase markers would work

2.5mm Radius Deluxe Corner Rounder Punch Cutter - for killing the sharp edges on the sheets after cutting, but I really don't remember it being expensive, so can just borrow mine/cut corner manually/find something cheaper

Painting Stuff

I'm not really gonna go into this unless someone is really interested in trying it out themselves...
