It sounds like you've answered your own question! I'd put it in the first
frame of the main timeline (varname = 0;) so it can be accessed from
anywhere as _root.varname . Just put ++_root.varname anywhere you
want to increment it (like in your hittest handler) and you'll count the
pieces correctly.
