We would like to invite backer feedback on the color of towers.
Here are the two primary options:

1 - Each player may have their own color. This means four different colors and each player would get six towers and a catapult in that color. However, when we sell add-ons to increase the number of players, you would get repeat colors. For example, two players would have to be blue.

2 - All towers are the same color (probably grey, because this is a good "stone" color.

Please note that we will not base the decision entirely off of this poll, but backer feedback is very valuable in helping us make the decision.

Thanks!

Poll
What color should the towers be?
Four colors (one per player)
All the same color
Either way is fine

Good point. If each of the core players are different colours but then all add-on players get, say, "blue" that means everyone in a five player game would still be unique.

In a 5 or 6 player game, there would still only be 4 unique colors.

In that case, they are no longer "unique" and should just all be one color for consistency.

I would've just made the standard victory d8s all different colors since those are easy to get in many colors.

Tough choice! I'd prefer a possible stretch goal that gives 6 different dice tower colours!

Colors! Who cares if 2 to 3 in 6 people have the same color, that's way better than 6 in 6!
I mean if every game game you play is a 6 player game? Then I could guess Ican see where your ccoming from...
But iI plan on a 3 player average game.

And if the color thing is really and issue just buy 2 copies of the game, then its only 2 in 8 that share a copy, and heck this could be a good thing say if you were playing teams...

Just my two cents but...

6/6 of the same color (my preference) or 6/6 all different colors is better to me than a mix of both.

You will get your "colors!" from all the unique minion dice color combinations and this will actually make them "pop" (ooh ahh) in contrast to the towers if the towers are all grey. It would also make the upgraded towers "pop" and stand out among standard towers.

And as stated before, if towers become grey maybe catapults become (wooden) light brown? Any future siege weapons would also be light brown to match.

I would prefer different colors for all players, but if it's only for the first four it might as well be all grey. Grey will probably look best, with brown catapults/siege engines. Worst case, I'll use some of our own multi-colored dice to make different player colors.

I mostly just want the numbers on the D8s to go from 0 (no points) to 7 (1 point away from victory).

That way, everyone places their point-tracking d8 in front of them from the start ...

Having 6 different colors will be great! (what about purple and orange?)
But if you have to limit them to 4, then it will be better having only Grey Stone color
