I do, however, believe that all the different colors are a big part of what give the game it's distinctiveness. In addition to any illustrations/symbols/arrows/dots you'd like to use, I would suggest perhaps adding a dash of the appropriate color as well. At least beginning players would be able to tell at a glance the value of the piece, depending on whether or not it's a primary or secondary color.
