User definable player colors, (I'm colorblind, the greens and blues and purples all look the same)

You could just use the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, and -- since Purple and Violet are so similar -- Black.

The 7th colour is always the hardest.
Yellow sometimes appears too pale, dark yellow looks like orange/brown. There is currently a yellowish green.
Black is used for outlines. but it would work ok.
But I agree some work needs to be done to differentiate the colours more.

Yes. First comment I have and I love War Dice. Whats up with the greens?!

Alternatively, if you can make only the current player completely opaque, and everything else translucent or faded, the color won't matter as much. this would especially help with seeing land connections through the dice. (sometimes they are obscured)

With red-green colorblindness, several of the colors look identical. It would be a huge help just to always have the player's color be the same.

Pink would work

Would patterns be feasible to implement, as well? That way the colorblind people wouldn't have the problems.

The two greens are quite difficult to distinguish between. I always try to avoid those two colour.

Instead of Black, I think a dark shade of grey would be a better replacement for one of the greens. Black would just stick out too much.

patterns perhaps, like checkerboard maybe?
