red, green and brown, really? And no symbols to help differentiate them? Such a shame, might have to cancel my pre-order.

Shouldn't that be the job of the publisher especially considering the game is $70? Great advise.. so helpful shake

The game is not suitable for color blind people. It's what it is.

Lol im screwing with u

Seriously though if its not colour blind friendly i wouldnt see the harm in repainting or modifying it. Maybe DoW would make a sticker kit if the demand was there... Hell why not design a sticker kit and pitch the idea to them. Then you could get some credit for helping out with the game. If i were a publisher and a customer did that i wouldnt turn the idea away. Im sure you would get huge props from the gaming community as well.

THis should have been done already is the point. Or even better choose better colors. Sadly I'm not a graphic designer and I'll just end up not buying it.

Some people just show up places to complain. That's their form of entertainment, is complaining - Doug Stanhope

I asked a specific question that had yet to be answered. Are there symbols or not? Glad you can't read


If only there were a site on the Internet where one could see images and videos of actual game components...

Someone should make a site like that.

Ok. Empathically, my deepest condolences, but this is one of the many games that unfortunately are completely unplayable for colour blind people. It would have been a big impact on production costs to make different coloured boats look different in shape and symbology, I guess. Too bad. Don't shoot the messenger. It's just the truth undistilled.

Antagonistic, insulting, or otherwise disruptive comments ARE NOT welcome here.

Please use the icon when you see disruptive or antagonistic comments or any other violations of the Community Rules. This serves two purposes:

1- using the icon will bring that post to the attention of forum moderators so they can deal with it appropriately. We prefer that you not respond to the post directly. Responding invites the offender to continue, and if you respond aggressively you may end up dragging yourself down with the offender.

2- if enough users flag a post using the icon then that post will be hidden from general view, preventing others from being exposed to it.

Thanks!
