I received my kickstarter shipment today. the components are nice and my solitaire first-run learning game was fun.

However.. I'm going to have trouble with the Joker tiles. I can only distinguish between the green and red Jokers if I hold them side-by-side for contrast - comparing them to other green or red tiles doesn't work for me due to the fineness of the red/green coloured lines on regular tiles. It's a shame the Jokers couldn't have been marked with their suit symbols as this would have alleviated the colour issue entirely.

I'm not colorblind, but I can definitely see how this might be a problem. Can you compare against the colors on the rail?

the colours on the rail are quite distinct to me - indicating one at least is a slightly different shade, so they're not a reliable guide.

The jokers should have the colours AND the representative suit icons on them.

absolutely. and it would presumably have been easy to implement pre-production.
