Just a small little odd question:

Why does the game come with three yellow metropolises and three different colored tockens (to tell you what color the metropolises really are)

Why not just have the three metropolisis, three different colors.

I can't think of any reason. Not a big deal but definitely odd don't you think.

I agree with you. Personally I painted the crossbars of my metropolises in green and blue (the third one is already yellow). The are still "a golden city gate" (pg. 8), but identifiable by their color and connected to their owner by the color of the city they straddle.

I'm guessing they don't use colours because the 5-6 player expansion adds 2 colours and they didn't want to make the metropolises the same colours as people's pieces.
