I don't know if it's just me, but the clear token chips that come with the Nexus version of this game are incredibly difficult to see. Well, for those wondering - I found a very cheap and wonderful solution!

These are not only clear, allowing visibility of the space numbers, but are dome-shaped and make it much easier to see that there's a clue on that space. I almost forgot, they're a lot harder to misplace!

The only thing that stopped me buying something similar was the problem of trying to balance a Detective pawn on the same space...

I know I can place a player to one side of such a space, but I wasn't happy with this method.

But clue tokens only go on the circles where the detectives don't go.

You can also lightly outline each disk with a Sharpie... Not as cool, but cheap.

Yes, you may be playing it wrong if you're trying to put detectives on top of clues.

Whoopsy! just a mental block there. I've a good few games under my belt to have made such an uneducated comment!
