How are you supposed to keep track of which monster is which players monster card when multiple players have the same monster?

I understand that all monsters activate during each players villain phase, but how do you determine which monster is damaged/killed (assuming you can't remember which is which )

You don't keep track. When you kill a monster, you discard the card that is closest to you clockwise around the table. So if you controlled one of those monsters, you would discard your card. If not, the player to your left, if he controlled one, he discards one, etc.

It is one of the better mechanics of the game, no player really "owns" any one monster, they just own one of the types.

I thought the rulebook explained this on page 10.

It only matters for monsters that have more than 1HP.

You use the Monster HP tokens and position then adjacent to the monster (the ones with the curved edge). Once monster is killed, and this is the important fact, you remove that figure from the map and remove the card that belongs to the active player (or if the active playet doesn't have the appropriate monster card, then you go round clockwise).

The point is that the monsters DO NOT "belong" to a player. You don't have to keep track which monster figure belongs to which monster card. Once ANY of the monsters are killed, then you remove the active players card.

Thx, that clears it up.

It's a neat enough mechanism, although it could produce some odd occurrences.
