I just got my game in the mail today and the meeples from the KS page are very apparently yellow, green, purple, and white.

Mine our brown, dark green, dark purple, and light green.

Anyone else have this issue?

Mine are those colors but I didn't think anything of it. I thought they were trying to be cool camouflage-type colors..?
I don't know if they'll be an issue for colorblind people. I'll probably only play this 2P so will always choose a light and a dark color.

Yeah, I was a bit disappointed when I saw this. No-one in my group is colour-blind (though I can see that being an issue for others) but it's basically light green, dark green, light brown and dark reddy-brown. I imagine they'll be easily confused. This and the ill-fitted box was a disappointment to me. I feel like both things would've been easily fixed.

Something like 10% of males are red/green color blind, including myself. Couldn't have picked worse colors. Yes I can tell them apart on close inspection but not at a glance or when scanning the board.

Boggles my mind that manufactures haven't figured this out yet. Stick to saturated colors as far apart as possible on the spectrum please.

I really wish someone would make a set of non-brown zeppelin meeples.

I'm thinking about just painting over one or two of the sets with some blue and yellow or something.
