Love the idea of the flags but only 5 colours and missing Purple is a point of concern for me.

Why make them colour specific?  I prefer the original ones linked in first post that were more universal.

There is at least the untreated ones I guess, but they are now relegated to a ‘think about buying’ rather than a ‘take my money’ purchase as they were when I first saw this post.  :(

Yeah color-specific flags is a strange choice, but I suggest to just pick one color (natural? black?) and just use it for everything.

Indeed that might be the way I go with it but happy to keep using the score tiles while I consider.

The color-specific Meeple Flags was a bit of a downer... In my group we play red, yellow, orange, pink, turquoise and white. I wouldn't have flags in proper colors for 4 of them... :'(

While thinking about options, Cundco ran out of stock... So problem solved. :o I will stick with the ones from Gamecrafter for the time being.

They've run out of stock of all of them now, so no more dilemma. While I like the concept, they look very brittle (are they made of balsa wood?). I think I'll stick to my normal scoring tiles. I ordered a second set of CI scoring tiles several years ago. I will likely order more CII/III scoring tiles once they are made available. They work adequately.

I usually played :blue-meeple: or :orange-meeple: but other players wanted those colors normally, so these days I play :white-meeple:.

So, unpainted flags for everyone! ;)

yes, I think this might really be the solution...
I initially ordered all 5 colours and 3 sets of neutral ones so that I could paint them in the respective missing colours.

The Meeples Flags ran out if stock while I was deciding what to get...

The most practical thing would be that all the flags with a particular number would be of the same color. Imagine:
+50 --> unpainted
+100 --> blue
+150 --> red
+200 --> black
+250 --> yellow
+300 --> green

This way you could tell apart scoring meeples from different laps... But to do this you need to by a prohibitive number of meeple flag sets in each color. :(n) :(n)

With the current approach you don't have any visual hints...besides, the don't cover all the meeple colors. :-[
