Had anyone thought about or tried keeping a running tally of VPs for each player as the game goes on? I was thinking about trying this so as to increase risk/reward tactics and the overall tension of the game. I thought it might lead to more interesting tactics like intentionally losing to high-VP monsters or sacrificing heroes to make up point differences late in the game. And there's a certain anti-climatic feeling we've had when everyone has to go through their deck and tally up VPs after all of the action. I think it would be more exciting to know that a game is coming down to the wire, and to know exactly who wins right at the moment the Thunderstone is recovered.Not a bad idea to know this, although the game is already fiddly enough that people may forget to update scores, causing more problems than solutions.
Of course, the downside would be in situations where everyone knows that one player is so far ahead that it doesn't matter what happens in the final rounds.
