Calling colorblind gamers

Ok, most of you (upwards of 90%) will see 6 distinct colors of ball in that graphic. Some of you will point out that the shading looks haphazard and the balls aren't all perfectly circular. That's not important right now. It's totally true, and I need to fix it, but not right now.

It's been pointed out to me that I've designed a game that (in part) depends on the player's ability to discern red from green, and 8% of male Caucasians cannot do this. I have some approaches in mind to tackle this, and I'd like to try them out on you, if you're red/green colorblind, and if you have the ability to run Windows EXE games. (Linux could also work, but you might have to install some Python game libraries. If you're a Linux type, this shouldn't be a big deal.)

Thanks in advance.
