Re: Anatomy of a Card
I've always wondered how those examples look for us colourblind compared to people with normal sight. Can we get a simulator for the simulator

But seriously, it's a very important thing in games like this where it matters immensely that you quickly can get a picture of who has which pieces where. Some COIN games are very hard to play because of this (Falling Sky for instance) and I've had to paint ugly black sides to my red pieces in Wars of the Roses: Lancaster vs. York.

It was certainly on my mind when we discussed the colours of pieces in Colonial Twilight: The French-Algerian War, 1954-62.

Every use of a color is paired with an icon. The game will have wood blocks which could be an issue. I will look into a solution.

Would different components for each side be an option? Perhaps using stickers?

I would love little cat n'bird meeples, and maybe buildings that reflect the different sides. It's an extra I might well pay for in your Kickstarter.

Yes, I am in on this.
