I've ordered A Billion Suns and am looking forward to painting up some miniatures.

Watching a few videos online I see that players have to keep a tally of their credits. This is normally done with percentile dice, but knowing the way my kids constantly knock the table I wanted to find something better.

Then I remembered the 'row counters' my mum used to use when knitting. This are small – designed to slide onto a knitting needle – and come in different colours so you could use blue for credit and red for deficit.

They're pretty cheap off Amazon – link

Just thought I'd share in case anyone else was interested.

Nice find. I can see those being useful for a few other things, too.

I've ordered some of these for use with Munchkin. They're really good at keeping d10's from getting knocked over!
