I don't know about everyone else but I am not a huge fan of the cones used for counters. I find them to be a pain, hard to get a hold of with my dried out callous meat-hook, man-hands. I have used dice before but they always seem to be getting bumped and turned....by accident and some people cheating. Sometimes I have used apps on my phone but I find that rather annoying.
I am thinking of using Lego bricks. Looking at the lego store I can get multiple shades of green, red and blue so I can use one color for the characters base stats and the other shade for weapon bonuses. I think this would be a good alternative, does anyone else have any ideas that they use?
