AHLCG: Arkham Horror: The Card Game: The Soundtrack

Herein can be found a complete Youtube soundtrack for the core set and all campaigns up to and including Innsmouth. They are ambient tracks, intended to be looped, rather than a playlist of music.

In cases where the tone changes radically at a certain point, I’ve provided another option to switch to. Sometimes there’s a music track and an accompanying ambient sound track. Usually one drowns out the other at full volume so I’ve suggested a relative volume percentage to lower one to.

I’d love to know what you think of the choices I’ve made, in particular whether you agree with the “tone” of a particular scenario.

Remember you can right click and choose “Loop” in Youtube to infinitely loop the music (assuming they haven’t removed the feature again by the time you read this).
