Do you have got the same problem with "King of Tokyo":

The points of your enemies are not visible enough, especially at a big table.


What do you do against that?

I just ask them. "How many points do you have?" Or... "How many points does everyone have?"

Me too. And then usually everyone says "X points, X hearts" so both are clear.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

I have always done the same as above. Just be careful you make it clear to overly competitive players from the start that all of that information is intended to be open. I've only once had a player gripe about being asked his status. Lesson learned.

People can either be cooperative about their HP/VP, or I can waste everyone's time by tracking every change on a piece of paper.

Yes. I hate it.

I have a house rule that sneaking a victory by not telling people you have a lot of points is essentially cheating.

We place the score cards in the spare plastic stands, so that they're standing upright next to us for everyone's view.
I like that it also adds a cool sort of billboard vibe to the playfield.

That's a good idea.

It would be great if the cards would be printed on both sides


What would be also cool is an app which shows the points of all monsters in a nice way. Like this I could just put my tablet on the table.
