Default Naming a Game Aid

Right, I'm having some issue coming up with a relatively succinct name for a game aid I've made. The title 'Summary Combat Tactics' is, at minimum, a misnomer. The aid is a sheet to be filled out. It is intended to be used for writing down Combinations and Trademark Moves, or just to list a few basics, as well as space for a few notes (though it is assumed the back will be blank). It's spilt on the page into multiple cards, so in principle you could cut them out and hand them out. I do see this being primarily used with newer players.

How about GURPS Battle Aid (GBA) or perhaps Tactical Assistant Sheet (TAS)

Also, I would very much like you to send that my way and if you are willing please send me a PM and I will send you my email address.

I got a Excel file I am polishing off right now for Combat Rounds so this would just be perfect for my guys.

Sure, so long as there's feedback. Don't expect it till Sunday though, need to give it a little tweek before I hand it out and can't do that till then.

I think I'll go with Battle Aid. The rest sound a little too technical.
