I have added a bunch of coins to act as tens and just pay out each category during final scoring then add up the total income. Shame they didn't add extra coins rather than including a score pad

You get notes on categories automatically, and paper is cheaper.

My main issue is that it's a little disingenuous to say that 10 sheets is a "pad". The reason I like the paper sheets is because it is a record of play. I keep all of the used ones.

Well, that I grant. It could be rather thicker.

In some other threads Frank apologized for that and admitted it was a mistake caused by a miscommunication with the printer.

Yeah, I like keeping the record. That way you can also kind of look back at what areas a player either excelled at or neglected to get a certain score. Good stuff.

I think I read they forgot to specify how many pages they wanted so the manufacturer only put 10.

At least they put the PDF up in the Files section to print.

I'm also working on an electronic version.

It is a shame the pad is so small , I hope they consider putting up additional pads on the publishers or boardgamegeeks store, I'll want more and would rather have proper pads, better presentation that homebrew ;P

Not to mention that everyone has a calculator in their pocket these days. I love the scorepad and how it records the saga

I'm onto sheet 3 already, and I put two scores in each column. I wish it were much thicker.

Yeah it's a bummer they didn't include more. But the file to print them has been made available and I'm hopeful in a future print run they'll include more.

For us as 2 player gamers we have more then enough, we can log 8 games on every sheet (1 column per game), that'll take us years.
