"'A grey man,' she said. 'Neither white nor black, but partaking of both. Is that what you are, Ser Davos?' 'What if I am? It seems to me most men are grey.'" -- Lady Melisandre of Asshai and Ser Davos Seaworth from A Clash of Kings by G.R.R. Martin

Well, I've had it with looking across the six player Settlers board and handing a sheep card to the brown player only to have the red player go, "Hey, that's mine..." Thanks to Board Game Bits, grey will soon be the new red, and my mild colour blindness will cease to matter.

Sure, I could paint them myself, but I really shouldn't be picking out colours without several overseers, and besides, I can buy them. And you can too! For the colour-blind among us, this geeklist seeks to show them where them might get replacement parts to make the game that much more playable. Please, add your own suggestions in the comments and add new games to the list!

I should thank the following lists of inspiration, since I don't own many of these games...:
