Score Board

The power gauge is a path of squares outside the play area with a series of special events (16-Bit, Super) and Skull Counters that moves forward whenever models (of either side) take actions that inflict wounds.  (Conditions like Fire and Abilities like Backlash do not move the Power Gauge).  This serves to move the game along and eventually leads to the spawning of Mini-Bosses and Bosses.
