Can anyone explain what these are a for? I've thoroughly gone over the rule books and I can not see any reference to them.
the wood (discs and logs) and the food cubes in Lignum are unlimited. If you run out of any discs, logs and/or cubes you can replace them by using the amount-tokens.
(example: if you run out of food cubes you can replace 3 or 5 food cubes by putting the amount-token to the food storage....)
You´re right, it´s not easy to find in the rules. It´s written on page 1 (FAQ, Tactical variant...) in the FAQ section.
Normally you need them very seldom at the first plays of Lignum. But later on maybe you´ll try some "extreme strategies" and it´s more likely you need them...
