The person I play games with the most is Matt. Matt plays purple. I play orange. Needless to say, there aren't that many games we can play that let us both play our favorite colors. This is a list of games in which both orange and purple are player colors -- not just colors present in the game, but colors that represent a player.

Update in 2010: some selfish jerk left the 'geek and took all his pictures with him. I can only assure you that all the games listed did, at one time, have photos showing orange and purple player pieces. I cannot edit others' listed items -- if your entry has a dead picture link, please edit it to put up a new picture showing orange and purple pieces.

The most obvious game for us to play is Travel Blokus. We wouldn't even have to tolerate any primary colors (or that kiss-up primary wannabe, green) on the board. I have it, and, oddly, I'm not sure I like it.

This is one of the first games I ever played with Matt. Whenever we play, I'm predictably orange and try to get Turkey into the EU, and Matt plays purple and tries to keep Turkey out of the EU.

Not only does Tongiaki have orange and purple, but it's also about obscure geography, which appeals to both of us. We play this two-player a lot, particularly at the Silver Diner in Clarendon.

We discovered this at the WBC this year. We both quickly made it to the leaders' table and stayed there. I was winning up until the last round, but then a question about the founding of the Federal Reserve knocked me down to fifth or so but put Matt into first to win the tournament. And both of us got to play our favorite colors.

A game on my wishlist. It looks like orange and purple are both available, but poor blue got left out so that boat leaks could be blue. It's about time one of the primary colors got a taste of obscurity for a change.

Here's a new one that might appeal to you. The downside is that you're forced to play two colors at once, so to be orange, you'll have to be orange and red, and your friend will have to be purple and pink. If you can tolerate that, you'll be ok.

There are both orange and purple pieces in Metro. Unfortunately, you have to have five players to use the purple pieces. Maybe that's why I prefer to play this with five

If you can get past the oversized forehead of the Shogun on the box cover, this is my favorite of the Game Master series by MB.

In fact, if you want to really go color/theme-crazy you can do as I have done and acquire matching opaque d12s for the armies... That is actually light-purple if you are looking for some.

Heck, I am also having a friend bring me back 5 yen coins from Japan this New Year so that I can replace the plastic koku...

My copy of City and Guilds has both purple and orange, but I notice some of the photos show games with what appears to be different colors.

But it's not a two-player game, mind you.
