I'm awaiting my copy of WK any days now. I noticed that Columbia sells a pack of "Gold Markers" for Wizard Kings.

Do you know what they look like? Are they standard blocks with stickers like those in Heroes and Treasures Expansion packs?

How many are in these packs (for $3.98)?

Do they include Silver/Gems?

Thanks!

Thanks. What's the difference in use compared to "Gold/Silver" blocks?

They can be used to mark gold unused in a city (see 6.3, 2nd ed). We put them on the city on the board to indicate unused moneys from previous turns in that city. Unlike Silver/Gold/Gems markers, they aren't, from a rules standpoint, units, so they don't count for stacking, they don't take hits in combat (but can be captured), your opponent will know where they are, and most importantly, they can't be moved.

My experience is that the game does not come with enough gold/silver markers. A 2nd sheet (they are small, 25-30 counters, IIRC) is not a bad idea, maybe even a 3rd.

How much gold/silver might accumulate in one city hex? I'm thinking of using little wooden cubes instead of cardboard markers. Thanks.

We use the gold counters from Pirates of the Spanish Main.

Like here in this game.

I think that is somewhat genius (better than subgenius, better than a little bit genius, but not quite full genius but only because I am not sure where in my basement my PotSM stuff is and I am not buying more).
