Does anyone know if the card color/symbol combinations are evenly distributed?

For example green diamond, purple circle... etc..

I started to count them, but decided maybe someone already had.

I believe this Card Analysis file has the data you are seeking.

I found this one earlier...I don't believe it does. Or I'm just plain ole dumb.

True, it doesn't have the combos as you'd asked for. My bad.

Each color appears on 27 of the 54 cards. Each symbol appears on 18 of the 54 cards. So I started by assuming that each target symbol appears on 9 cards of a given color. Or to put it the way you asked the question, each color/symbol combo appears on 9 cards.

To prove the assumption, I pulled out all the cards of 1 color (brown) and then sorted them into piles by target symbol. There were 27 cards with brown; each color/target symbol pile contained 9 cards.

But then I tried the same with Green and had 9, 10, and 8 of Diamond, Triangle, and Circle. Assumption disproven!

So then I took a few minutes to go through all the color and sort each into a symbol pile. Here's my results:
D T C
Brown: 9 9 9
Green: 9 10 8
Red 9 9 9
Blue 9 9 9
Purple 9 9 9
Yellow 9 8 10


For the most part, every color/combo is 9 of the 54 cards, except Green and Yellow with Triangle and Circle. The percentages work out to 14.8%, 16.7%, and 18.5% for 8, 9, and 10 respective.

I'm guessing the color/symbol combos can't work out quite evenly with 54 cards.

Awesome! Thanks for doing this.

I was trying to decide if Barraging that single Blue WN is better than taking the risk on Barraging the Green WN with depth, in turn 1 East Beach.

The Blue on being a better percentage, doesn't fire at very many landing units...whereas the Green one really gets to unload if it fires.
