I play D&D. There are a thousand initiative trackers out there. Here’s one I invented recently.
First, each player picks a Meeple to be their character’s mini.
Quick, roll initiative! The players all roll, and so do the enemies. We grab a second meeple for each player, as well as second token for each enemy. This becomes the initiative tracker.
This is the initiative order. It’s currently the red meeple hero’s turn. Next up will be the blue meeple hero, then the black cube enemy, and so on.
