And really, in a game that is meant to be a simpler and faster version of Zendo, doesn't the loss of one variable aid in that goal, while having only three pieces of any given color (when playing with a Treehouse set) to work with would make color-based rules even *more* difficult.

In short, I think this game would play better with a monochrome stash.
