Colorblind? Is there a Rook deck for me?
Over the years, a consistent request from customers has been to see about getting a deck of four colors that is specifically designed for those that have colorblind tendencies. Statistics tell us that roughly 8% of all males have some sort of colorblindness. This includes deuteranopia, protanopia, tritanopia.
The most common color blind vision is deuteranopia. Individuals that suffer from this vision impairment have difficulty distinguishing between reds and greens in particular. The regular rook deck is known for having black, red, green, and yellow making two of the colors very hard to distinguish.
57cards has gone through some research and now has a 4 colored deck ready for manufacturing with hopes of solving a longstanding issue that has plagued those with colorblind tendencies.
Want to see the colors?
They are Black, Blue, Orange, and Yellow (with yellow having a black outline on it). Welcome back yellow!
Do you have an opinion on these colors?
If you or someone your know has colorblind tendencies, please send this along to them to verify their eyes are able to distinguish the colors selected.
Let your voice be heard and please comment below. We are happy to receive feedback of all types to ensure this deck fills a void for those that have a hard time telling apart the normal green and red colored decks.
