I was talking about the issue with the map, not the parts.adlertag wrote:But I think its not. I guess 999 out of 1000 customers are satisfied with this product. But suddenly you got a friend who is colorblind, and now you want Hasbro to make the pieces in the same noob colors as Risk. So I tell you its better that this one dude paint his pieces, rather then the 999 others that have no problem with colors. I am sick and tired of you left-wing commies who want the strong ones to be considerate to the poor ones. Now my eyes work the way the lord intendet, and I am happy with the Anniversary colors. So tell you friend to buy paint.Craig A Yope wrote:
This is irrelevant to the discussion.
You can still work on making the borders stand out from the background with out changing the map. Plus, there is no way to "paint" the map to get it to look different.
The inclusion of the control markers was a brilliant addition to this map. As much as I like the idea of color-coding the territories to match the power who initially controls it, that doesn't do the color-blind player any good. Especially if the colors are all dark like the Revised map.
As for the parts, if they had all been country-specifc units, then color wouldn't have been an issue.
I agree that it is ridiculous "go overboard" to satisfy one person out of a thousand, but in this case, you could still fix the problem without alienating the majority.
Besides, get your info straight, I am a Libertarian- not a socialist/communist. You sir, though, are just an annoying jackass!
