    I'm looking ahead to the AGL and the possibility of being able to run small tournaments in my own dining room (saving lots of costs), but watching various actual play videos on YouTube, I notice some inconsistency of practice that I think it would be good to tidy up ahead of beginning tournament play that might involve visitors from outside my local meta.

    1. Do you think state counters should go next to the miniature or on the character card?

    I think on the card makes more sense, as counters can easily be confused when next to miniatures, but at the same time, it's easy to forget they are there when you're focused on the field rather than on the cards.

    2. Do you count down from 5 actions to 0, or up from 0 actions to 5?

    I think down from 5 makes more sense, but would like to hear if anyone has a different perspective.

    3. Same question with movement points?

    See above.

    1. Card. Always on card. They do not need to move around. At all.

    2. Down. A 5 "point" stat reduced by 2 start from 3 and goes to 0, instead of starting from 3 and going up. It's more direct and intuitive.

    I agree and I always count down- actions and movement. I think it is more clear to your opponent.

    Count down. Energy and movement is a resource you have. You can increase and decrease as you go, rather than counting the number you've used and remembering new maxes.

    For states, I suggest placing on the card, and generally moving the card to be in front of you as you use the character. Helps remind you at least when you activate them.

    It's intended to use States tokens on character cards.

    And... I think it's better counting down.

    :wink:
