I just got the game and I think the clips are pretty awful. Did we learn nothing from Betrayal in the Hose on the Hill? The clips get moved by accident too easily and are just big arrows that don't seem proportionate to what they are pointing to on the card.

Yes, I know I'm being picky. Has anyone come up with an effective alternative?

We have played 5 times and have clipped them on "backwards" (so that the smaller inner arrow is the indicator) and have not had a problem. We realize that the chariot cards will not last long at this rate of usage and I will try laminating the cards.

My wife likes the game.

For Betrayal, we use small colored paper clips. They work perfectly!

I don´t like those black plastic arrow clips or the player's cards neither

What I´ve done is to laminated them with plastic, and I´ve replaced those awful black clips with colored book markers. I think its appearance is better now:

The color coordinated clips are "prettier" for sure.

After doing some research, I opted to order "book darts" metal line marker bookmarks. I think they will be ok, and this was a set of 18 - exactly the number needed for 6 players.

I also laminated the cards to increase durability and thickness (thanks for the suggestion, Rubeus).
