My wife is as big a knitting geek as I am a gaming geek. Which, as it turns out, is rather handy.

I was sitting next to her last night watching TV, pondering solutions to hit point tracking in SotM. I have more D10s than you can shake a stick at, but they're bit fiddly to use for tracking HP, and prone to getting knocked over during beer-fuelled gaming sessions.

Imagine my surprise when I looked down into my wife's knitting bag and spotted the perfect HP tracker!

You can see them here:

For any Singaporeans looking for these, you can buy them from Spotlight (Plaza Singapura) under the knitting section for about SGD3 a piece.

How are you guys tracking minion health? I am going to buy a copy of this game and have seen a number of suggestions for tracking hero/villan health, but not much on minions. Seems like tracking minion HP could be tedious.

The best I have tried are tokens in denominations of 1 and 5, either coins or something from other games like Nexus Op's money tokens.

Handful of six and ten sided dice.

I've also used a handful of coins.

Both work great for me.

Just to give back a little - again to any Singaporeans out there - you can get them knitting counters for just $3.50 for 2 at Spotlight in Plaza Singapura.

A 2-pack is usually $5, but Spotlight is running 30% off craft items right now with a free membership you can sign up for on the spot.

Hope this helps other Sg SOTM fans out there.

Edit - $3.50 for two, not one.

I put my iPad in the middle of the table and track everything with that. You can add minion "cards" to the display for tracking purposes. Can be a bit tedious when you run into something like The Matriarch but if that happens I just start using counters for the minions. It works fine for every hero except Unity when she gets a bunch of bots out.
