I am not a fan of the fatigue dial. It causes the board to wobble on the table and takes up so much space in the box. I was thinking of removing them and using some sort of small token to mark the fatigue. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might make a good token?

You could always just use a D20 as a counter.

True, but then players would have to memorize at what number they can no longer go in certain heat levels. I'm just looking for something I could put on the board and move up the numbers instead of using the wheel.

You could just stick/glue little spacers to the bottom of the board. Like maybe those fuzzy kind for chair legs.

That is exactly what I did!

I used small transparent rubber ones for drawers and cabinet doors. They work perfectly. No wobble!

After playing La Granja, I realized that's exactly what that game needs as well. So much tucking of cards underneath all sides of the player board.
