There are scenarios, where the blank tokens are needed. I wonder are they enough? If they are not I'm thinking to substitute them with something else.

It may depend on what kind of gamer you are.

I've played the basic game twice now and didn't use any. With expansions you may use more.

If you feel strongly about it you could use proxie tokens.

The game also suggests that you simply use a numbered token and write in on your save sheet what the numbered token represents.

I also have the idea of laminating the tokens and using a dry erase marker....

In the few games I've played I used the blank tokens without actually writing anything on them to represent the unique assets that came up in that game. It was easy enough to remember what they represented and we could jot down the details on a scrap piece of paper.

This is what I did as well. I'm always fearful of using blank tokens, worried I'll run out. So I never end up using any of them! Which kind of defeats the purpose of having them I suppose

There is one I'm considering writing on, as I think it's safe to assume it'll come up often enough. But it's also not really needed as a marker. *shrug*

i tend to just write the special tokens down on a piece of paper including the location ie in storage or hidden etc.

I use peel off sticky note tabs that are writable paper and stick them on the blank tokens. The were like $2 and there are dozens of them. Just write, stick, then if you run out of tokens, they just peel off to replace. Easy peasy.

Lettered tokens are provided if you don't want to write on the blank tokens or run out. The use of these is explained in the book of scripts(early pages I think). Basically you use a token eg 'A' and then write on a pad A= script number/ name. This is whatI do.

I've used the letter tokens every time this situation has come up so far.

Not to mention you could use each side for a different token effect.

I have come across three different ones so far but have barely scratched the surface of the game.

Yup - whole big thread about it a few weeks back! There was angst.
