This is totally not my kind of game, but just reading this makes me want to play it.

I use change (pennies for damage, nickels for +1 power tokens, quarters for stun, arcade tokens for keys) and d6s for aember/chains. Works pretty well. It's nice that a single d6 will forge a key unless you've got some abilities in play that change that. Playing a bit too much on crucible cooled me on the game a bit, as did buying my 4th deck, but it's solid and I don't see myself ever turning down a game.

There's a free app that maintains the counts for both players that is super-simple, with big color-coded buttons to make it easy to use. My son had gotten prints of the tokens and was going to cut them out, then he saw the app and we haven't looked back.
