I currently have everything from the Ambasadors Kisckstarter, so I have everything released up to this point.

I am torn because on one hand I want to rebuy it so I can have the color blind friendly version, even though I don't know anyone colorblind so everything matches going foward. But $100 is a lot to buy a game again that you already have, especially when I probably won't be able to resell what I have now for that much. I also will not be stickering it.

I ask the collective, what would you do?

Poll
What should I do?
Rebuy and sell/trade the one I have.
Keep what I have and just add to it. It is not a big deal.
Other (please explain)

There is probably a bigger market for the current version than you think. There are a lot of guys who don't care which version as long as it plays the same.

Ambassadors I believe is already color-blind friendly. You should only need to replace the base game if that is your concern. Just find a card from Ambassadors that references a specific color and see if it has a letter inside the symbol. I could be wrong, but I thought it was only the first printing of the base set that had that problem.

Yah, but the other thing is I wouldn't sell it until I got the new version, and by then there will be a flood of them probably.

You're right. Just looked at my Ambassadors stuff and they seemed to all have the letters. Defintely replace that.

Is the Stronghold version supposed to come out the same time as the KS copies?

Keep/Other.

Afaik, the only colour-blind 'non-friendly' bits are that in some ability text the circle doesn't have the letter within it, this can easily be corrected with a pen, just go through the Handful of cards lacking it and write 'R', 'M', etc

They're actually putting out stickers for that, but yes, this is the only color blind issue, and it affects maybe 10 Different types of cards (most of which have multiple copies, but a cheat sheet for instance would be very short).

All these campaigns, exclusives and editions are sooooo confusing! Lucky the game is worth it. (^w^)

I thought of that, but between my handwriting and the size I'd have to write it, probably not going to happen.

Yah, but I think it's going to be real hard to line them just right.

I've pretty sure I'm going to buy another one, and I'll give whoever I sell mine to the stickers to let them deal with it.
