Someone remind me:
The moment your hunger die goes to 6 you flip to the starvation side and immediately suffer 2 damage? Or do you flip the card and the next turn it advances to 2 damage?

Thanks.
Thinking of making a hunger dial instead of the dice, and working out how many numbers will go on it.

That's a cool idea. I guess you would need the numbers 1-5, a 6 that also has 2 wounds listed, and then the 4, 6, and 8 wounds. You could also put the death on there too.

So, 10 circular sectors on the wheel?

Indeed. Looking if I'll change the numbering a bit. As there won't be a die involved it won't need the 1-6 numbering. You'll be able to go from not hungry to starving.
Will upload when I have something to show.

Just remember that if you're in the red (starving) that it's a 6 and if you eat 2 food or something you would tick more than 2 spaces down on the dial.

Yeah, it's these little things I am trying to think of a clever way to show.

How about flipping the card and using a D6 with the 6-side moving down a scale? ...

Sounds revolutionary. But making custom dice seems even harder. Also, I'd need to make a health tracker so you don't have to move the tokens from one side to the other when flipping

Hang on.... so if you're at hunger level 6, you flip the card and take 2 dmg. Then next turn you go down the track once more and take the next level of dmg. If you eat 1 food, do you go back up to the 1st level hunger track and take 2 dmg or do you go down to 5 on the hunger dice and flip your card back over?

The latter

Oh? So in function 6 is the maximum value and the flip side of the card is just how LONG you have been at 6? If something could somehow give 5 food, you could go from one step from starving to death (last spot on the back of the player card) to fully fed with a 1 and the normal side of the card?

Sorry if this is a simple question. I'm still awaiting my copy so I'm just learning.

Yes, exactly.
