We have taken into consideration your suggestions regarding the color of the board. Off course everyone has a different taste, so our graphic designer has prepared three versions of the board layout. Which one do you think is the best for the game about Mars?

In order of preference:

1) A
2) B
3) C

B and A are almost tied. On this particular monitor A looks to be slightly over saturated, but in print that one I think will look best.

C - Looks like the Moon
B - Looks like Earth
A - Looks like Mars

IMHO I like A best.

I agree - A is best. And it seems to match all of the previously shown images of the game in development, with one glaring exception. That image (titled "A photo of The Game") had a definitely weird hue, which was commented on by many, including me, but I assumed it was simply a case of bad lighting and/or rendering. It's really hard to judge colors of things when a digital photo is taken, then processed, and then rendered on different devices. But you only need to bring up the Images page for the game and you can see that that one photo is anomalous. Hopefully the reaction to it did not mislead the developers into thinking that there was any general dissatisfaction with the color as it has appeared prior to that.

I think C is too cool a shading, purveying none of a martian angle.
The colours of everything BUT the background pop more in C and B, but with B, at least the background has some warmth in colour.
But overall, I think the only one that (clichéd, I know) screams "Mars" is A. So I would always go with A...

I also like A best. As someone else already said, A looks the most like Mars. The other two don't capture that visual association.

I don't suppose a Kickstarter stretch goal is possible with a double sided board?

Well, A definitely seems more Martian to me. But it's also the less readable

B does look nice, but this is Mars.

Redder is better so I vote A.

A is the best thematically, but B is easier on the eyes. So I vote for C... kidding. A or B would be nice, unless there is a colour inbetween.

You should have done a poll!

But B is the best, then A, last C.

A lot of people are saying A because it is Mars it should be red right? But B is actually closer to how Mars really looks. It is not as red as A.

Also B is more readable.
