The Ra figure isn't put anywhere on the board. It just sits in front of players to mark whose turn it is (and the like). So it just needs to be small enough so it can be easily passed from player to player and (as previously stated) can fit in the box.
That would be perfect for this. I thought it showed what round it was by moving on a line. I only played once 2 years ago & was trying to remember by looking at the photos. Didn't work, but asking you guys did. Thanks.
