I have a sheet of looseleaf with my set that I've traditionally used to track life points, just initials and tally marks or crossed-out numbers. I've had it for years.

To make my set nicer, I've been thinking of using colored glass beads, or those dial counters I hear they use for Magic games.

Out of curiosity, how does everyone keep track of points in their games? Scraps of paper? Physical objects?

i have an old set of risk with a million small wooden blocks, so i took twenty of each colour that matched my wizards and voila, instant life points.

White board. And we have a tendency to track what caused the damage as well. Not sure why.. but it is funny.

We just use a sheet of yellow paper, with the names of the players written down in turn order. Someone usually gets assigned the task of "scorekeeper." Other information noted on the sheet include the date, cause of death if the the wiz died (e.g. "fireballed," "amplified sudden death," "daggered," etc.), and who won. As the previous poster, I guess we think it's funny too.

Hmm, tracking the cause of each damaging amount is a great idea.

I've always kept track of the life points on a scrap of paper, with the date and winner. I'll have to implement the idea of tracking method of death -- love it. I have one unwavering house rule however. The person who deals the first damage has to be the scorekeeper!

I use pennies and nickels.
I also use pennies to mark remaining turns for duration-based spells.
