After 2 printed prototypes I realized it was not possible to get a perfect color match of the green felt texture background on the printed game components. Because the box, the game cards, the board game cards, and the rules book are all printed on different equipment, there was a slight but noticeable difference in the shades of green on each component.
With the new black background, the color of the game components will be consistent. During the evolution of the design of this game set, the design did have a black background originally.
There is more contrast between the 6 color suits of the game set now with the black background. This will make it a little easier to see the color of the cards when playing in low light conditions.
