I'm colour-blind and the English version has almost indistinguishable blue and purple (despite that I'm in fact green colour retarded).

There's a japanese version but I can't find pics of the cards. I'm thinking of getting it.

Please someone photograph the cards under indoor/artificial-light (daylight can make colours more distinct for us colour-blind types, but that's no use in practice, and daylight bulbs are harsh and unpleasant).

I'm curious:

What's confusing about Grail Games cards? Don't they have different characters depicted?

Personally, even as a colour-blind person, I don't look at figures/characters but rather colours. The illustrations would have to be *very* distinct to compensate, but they aren't.

I have a similar problem with Lost Cities cards where the red and green are almost indistinguishable under indoor light.

Thanks for the help, Saltyhorse. I can see a similar issue with the japanese version, so I'm going to give up and ask the forum for the card distribution so I can make color-blind friendly cards.
