So I bought Belfort almost a year ago, and I have finally cracked it out of its box. Not sure why I haven't opened it sooner, besides the minor dread of having to teach everyone I know a new game. So anyways, I am pulling out all these gorgeous components and I check out the player mats, which are fabulous, and I look at the player colours. Purple, yellow (my colour if there's no black), white, red (my other back up), blue (my back ups back up) and then I notice... There's no green!! My wife will have a fit when she finds out! I never knew games didn't come with the obligatory green player colour!

Just having some fun, al in all I am really excited to try this game out.
Cheers!

I suppose you could paint the white pieces green...

But before you do, be warned! Belfort: The Expansion Expansion has Assistants, some of which come with tokens, and those tokens are green!

Tell you your wife she is 100% right . This was the very first thing I noticed when I first picked up the game which you can read about here (do a find on "Complaint").

Although if you scroll down they actually did give me a reason why.

This game got major points from my wife for including both yellow and purple as player colors!

LOL Yellow is my player colour and Purple is Jay's, so those were guaranteed to make the final cut!

I'll make sure if I'm ever creative enough to make a boardgame I'll make all they player colours a different shade of green... Just to keep my wife playing games with me.



Honestly though the game looks lovely and I can't wait to play our first game this afternoon. There looks like a lot of love put into this game, sadly I missed out on the kickstarter a few months ago. The OCD in me needs every expansion available.


Now I just need to get the expansion guilds and start playing!
