Just uploaded ZRF revision 1.2 which adds Michael Howe's four color board as an option (you start with color pieces and a three color board, click on switch piece sets to get symbolic graphics with a three color board, click again to get color pieces with a four color board, and click one more time to get symbolic graphics with a four color board).

There's some method to my madness, Daniel. Four colors makes the board just a bit too confusing, and while three colors doesn't completely distinguish the squares reached by Woodpeckers by the color of the square, the other squares are distinguished by the color of the squares to their left and right.

<font color='#9000C0'>That looks pretty nifty! My only complaint would be that the board consists of only three colors instead of four, which is a bit asymetrical. As a result, two of the Woodpeckers are traveling on the same color, but cannot occupy the same spaces with that color. It could get a little confusing.

Version 1.1 of the Aviary ZRF adds Michael Howe's alternate graphics for those who prefer symbols to colors.
