Bold?

Bolded or not? Bold will arguably make it easier to spot on table (or will it?), yet maybe it starts to look more childish?

This particular font doesn't look nicely when bolded, nor it's well-readable. Unlike when regular. All starts to fight for attention when you make it bold. I'll agree numbers we use may look a bit too thin, but I quite like this subtle charm they have, and it's lost when numbers are bold.
I'm the filthy bastard you wish you never met.

Yups... agree it's a font issue as well... I would like something like Georgia but that's open...

I do think this font in bold might be a bit too much, although without bold it might as well be too thin.

Even so, for some reason I kind of like it that bold for the stats, not so for the gold.
