Black ICE is in the same boat as B.Homeworlds.  You COULD play with a little table of color equivilence, but that just makes it a pain in the butt.  Fifteen colors would cripple (but not kill) two out of three of the 3House games.  It would be FAR better to sell three color versions of the 3House boxed set than to use three different color schemes in one set.
