Did everyone get a black castle in their game? Should it be blue to match the card?

Just a question.

Yes. I had the same combo.

Not sure if the piece was supposed to be blue or not.

It didn't pause a huge issue for us from a game play standpoint - however I would have preferred (were it my choice) using more colors instead of shades of yellow. But I'm assuming that this is better for color blind players with red/green confusion?

You're right, didn't create a game play issue. Just something I noticed and was wondering if others had the same problem.

Thanks for the response - seems I'm not the only one.

Ours was the same. I guess if you look just at the castle on the card, it does look sort of black?

It's actually a very, very dark blue - that does look black in certain lights. The reason we did this is so to make sure the castles were very distinct for color blind folks.

You should have just made it black then (it's my favorite color to play). Game looks fantastic (Just got my copy yesterday). Can't wait to play it!
