I have a 2-5 player game, where all the players each have their own special power. One in particular has extra currency that is in the form of color-coordinated cubes. So, the simple question is whether or to make the power specific to the color...Red player always has the extra currency. Blue player can move one extra space. Etc. Or do I need to let players choose their preferred colors and let them match to their preferred power?

Thanks for your thoughts.

This was a pretty unanimous response. The rules are not 40 pages...more like 10 at most with lots of visuals. It would save on components, and simplify the overall understanding of the how players will understand and remember other players's powers, which I think is helpful.

Thanks everyone.
