Yesterday, while playing the game, I realised how useful additional "strike icon tokens" would be.

Many a time, attachments or special abilities give a unit additional icons (black and white) and if the board gets crowded it's not easy to keep track exactly of who has what (the first hot expansion has a bunch of these effects).

I figured that if we had cardboard tokens with the three icons on the two backs this could help the game a lot, especially when introducing new players to the game.
THey could be glued on top of any cardboard, or even on the additional 1-damage tokens (for anyone owning 2 core-set).

Unfortunately, my graphic skills are below zero, thus I was wondering if any good willed geek would be so kind as to prepare a file with the 6 icons scaled to the size of that token.

I realize it's asking for unpaid labor
But to be fair, I shared my idea for free whistle

This isn't something I'd use personally, but I can see why some people would like these and can see their usefulness.

I am also really bad at photoshop type stuff so sadly I cannot help, but if I can add a suggestion for anyone doing this I would also add to the list:

-'force bubble' icon ones. I *always* forget about stuff like Mon Mothma and that first Rebel Hoth speeder objective that have or give out 'Edge 1' to stuff. If there was a little pool of force bubble tokens sitting by the Edge stack that could be very helpful.

Yeah, its something I commonly hear. Would have been nice for enhancement cards to have been designed to show what they do for the card they are attached to. But, it's just another reason to really pay attention to your cards and what they do, because ultimately, it's up to the card owner to enforce their ability. But I do feel your pain.

Sure that's obvious, and what everyone does, thanks Tips. Perhaps a a +HP number bottom left of the card, or use ACTUAL icons in the type rather than using brackets or not. Sure it works as is, but it could have been done to make it clearer, I would think.

And of course, no more tokens.

Agreed. I'd only like that the words "Unit" and "Enhance" weren't tiny. Better yet I wish the graphic design made those two cards types more distinct.

Oh, and focus tokens that aren't the same color as damage tokens.
