A "counter count counter" for those OCDers who like to keep track of how many counters are on the game board. Place the CCC on the appropriate "count box" of the Counter Count Sheet (free to copy for game use) at the start of the game, and then move it up/down the grid as counters are added/removed from play. As a bonus, a special At-Start Counter Count Counter can indicate the original number of counters per the OOB, a Deployment Counter Count Counter for when Squads deploy in to 2 HS, and a Scrounged Counter Count Counter for when SW are added from scrounged wrecks. At a quick glance, the attentive player can verify that the number of counters currently on the board match his meticulous record keeping skills.
What are some of the counters that are not in the system that might be useful?
Some that I was thinking of or have heard others recommend :
Bicycle counters(currently you have to use motorcycle counters?)
CX counter that shows color or side so that you know what nationality is beneath the CX counter.
Motion counter with ID letter of unit is on it
AR and FFE that has nationality color or insigna on it.
What are other ideas.
I am thinking of creating some of my own custom counters so I am interested in others thoughts.
How about an "unmarked" counter to indicate that the counter has not yet been marked with another counter? I know some of my counters feel left out when all the other counters are marked and they aren't. They don't say anything (they're cardboard after all), but you can see it in the way their punched edges droop.
