Hello, my question is about the hourglasses you gain or lose in the upkeep phase. If you gain one hourglass in the upkeep, do you have to return it at the end of the round phase? The rules doesn't say anything, so it could be possible to obtain another hourglass in the next upkeep phase for a total of eight hourglasses (6+1+1).

The same question applies in the opposite case, when you lose hourglasses, if this is acumulative.

Yes, you have to return it. The rules state:

Quote:
that player gains or loses Hourglass markers for the duration of the round


Of course, if you stay in the same health band, you'll keep the same effective total for later rounds.

how about you put the hourglass on the board icon, so you don't forget. One on each section for all player colors. That makes the 9 HGM more visual. However if you are VERY healthy (at Dark Green section) AND go into OVERTIME (Action Phase), you may find that you will need a 10th and 11th HGM. However overtime pushes you back one section (to Light Green), so you will have to give up the HGM bonus (in Upkeep Phase).
