I don't get it. Maybe there is something in the rules I missed but..why Kingburg need a year marker? It's written straight on the monster cards in which year we are. In year 1, the top card show a big "I", once we beat it, we change the year and now the top card show a big "II". I always forget to move the year marker and because of the monster level I always know in which year we are.

It's not useless, it's just duplicated info

If you do not need it, just do not use it.
King Tritus won't be offended.
(No, you haven't missed anything crucial in the rules.)


EDIT: spelling

Yes, you don't really need it.

It's kind of a legacy of our early prototypes, when the monster cards were sleeved and had no back, so a year marker was pretty useful by then.

No one (including us designers) noticed that with the big number on the back of the monster cards it was "redundant" to say the less.

You can use the marker as a replacement for some other game, at worst.
