In a video I saw a version of Five Tribes in which one player color was purple instead of pink. Will it be possible in the future to buy some player pieces with different colors?

Why did they even decided for pink as a player color?

Probably because there isn't much pink anywhere else on the board.

You got a problem with pink?

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

I love the pink pieces!
More games should use pink as player colour.

I don't like pink. And I think they should have put the same amount of black and orange pieces to also use these colors for a 2-player game.

I agree with that on principle. It always annoys me when publishers choose my 2p colours for me. On the other hand I never seem to mind whatever colours are chosen for 2p exclusive games. So I'm not very consistent, I only mind when I'm used to having more choice with more players.

As colourblind I must say that these two-player colours are very close for me.
I might one day spray paint one of them.
Rights now, my Camels are always placed lying, and my opponents are standing.

actually, yeah I do. I'm colorblind and can barely tell the difference between the two when they are right on top of each other. It drives me nuts that they chose which colors to use for 2 player, and they chose the two colors that were closest in shade.

Maybe this is naive as I'm not color blind, but I'd expect you to have as much or more trouble with the meeples (Assassins vs. Merchants, for example).

I'm sure they are pink as the game has a lot of different colored pieces (such as the meeples on the board).

I have many games, this one included that have pieces decorated with painters tape for my colorblind husband. I quite like the colors in this game, but he can't distinguish the 2p markers at all.
