It wasn't a big deal because the coaches are fine with us checking over the card ourselves, but it does seem like a bit of a waste to be precise on the app if it's not even going to be put onto the card without a reminder.


If I have a group that has run late for whatever reason (arrived late, lots of questions, I'm just a terrible coach, etc) I admit damage types are one of the last things I look at. It's more important to get everyone's basic stats on the sheet - AC, to-hit, damage, heal, spell damage. Damage types don't actually come up all that often and the DM in a combat room will believe you if you say you have fire damage. I do try to get everything on there and 95% of the time I do, but when we're in a time crunch that's one of the first things to go.

And yes, if it's already on a sheet it should be easy to do, but if I'm running behind because of everyone else who did not bring a sheet or an app I still need to get you to the training room on time.

Completely understandable! And as noted, it's not terribly difficult to double check the card myself- I'm familiar with the build so any errors should be really quick to pick out and fix.

We could just have business cards for the app and spread sheet, sitting in the coaching room, players we’ll see them a lot will check into them before the coach even gets to the room.

Put on the card the extra bonus you get for having a pregenerated character. Just a thought

Party card vs individual coaching-- how much should go on it vs more in-depth helping players familiarize themselves with their characters? Is the difficulty with new players, or with experienced players who use builders? There's always the training room to help out as well.

EDIT: I like Wayne's idea as well. Some form of stat sheet in the room so people can see what their stats do.

You know, everyone who comes in wants to immediately put their tokens out on the mat. How about putting right at the top of the map,
Make it easier on yourself use the app with a photo of the app.

Is it wrong if I have the app all configured, but I still want to put all the tokens out? Last year I saw sometime just open up their binder of tokens and that just didn't seem as much fun

It's not wrong, but the binder is more fun once you've had the experience of crawling around a coaching room floor looking for a particularly important token.

Hmm, yes. Last year I had 3 URS, This year... more. I don't think I want to be chasing one that's rolling on edge down the hall.

I like the idea for peer pressure to incentivize...but not one for one...perhaps use the same leveling as CoA...1,5,all...
1-4 uses app...they get +1 HP (today)
5+ uses app they get +2 HP
All use app they get +3 HP
We had one straggler in one room and peer pressure really worked to get that pop but sometimes people don’t want electronics when gaming...so gotta respect that too

In my experience, the players who use the app and share no tokens tend to speed the process up. New players with few tokens and no app take longer, but the real time waster is the players using the app that loan out some tokens to be extra helpful and kind, especially after the coach has entered the room. And players arriving towards the end of the time in the character selection room. I do wonder if leaving the party card and all 12 character cards for 4th/5th level in the room before the coach arrives could speed things up, because then early players with the app can start pre-filling for themselves. Synergistic tokens also slow things down because if one person comes late and adds to the count, it can change things for everyone (gloves of the cabal, charm of good fortune, etc). Synergistic tokens are bad for time efficiency if it is recorded on the party card.
