I usually only play with kids and I have found it's easier to add colors than make the rules more complex and playing with adults we just add rule complexity- so I guess it just depends who you are playing with if you want to add colors or not. "know your customer" I guess works here.

INtroducing more colours introduces additional (frustrating)
complexity, as now one of the attributes has 11 possibilities instead
of 4.  This is much different from the other attributes.

I've always found that if I want to increase the complexity, that the
better solution is to make the rule more complex rather than adding
