I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it. That explains the trouble that I'm always in.

Question 4 lacks orange for a rather common meeple color. It is also my preferred choice after green (the color of hope, like I hope to not lose too badly. ). But in the end, I am happy to play whatever my color.

I will play as orange. If it's not an option, I couldn't care less what color I get. I've considered buying spare pieces so I can play as orange if it's not an official color, and usually it isn't.

Yellow first. Orange then White then any type of brown/tan. I cannot be red, green or blue. Too difficult for me to figure out. LOL

On my game day, we have our colors. I'm yellow, Timm is red, Chris is blue and Kevin is green. Larry would be blue if Chris isn't there. Christian is orange or purple.

It's based on seniority.

Blue used to be my choice but my daughter grabbed that years ago (unless black is available.) And I join the chorus: where's orange?

In all seriousness, I used to be a default player for black. I switch it up to lesser used colors, ie orange or purple. Anything that stands out really, but I have been picking brown more and more since few people take it, and it is my last name.

I play green. If someone else took green, I will move the green pieces regardless of my color.

Even if you're not playing green you're still playing green. Thats Gangsta!

The last time I played Imhotep I was thinking about how the player pieces are Brown, Black, White & Grey.........yuck!

I hope colorblind folk (mostly men red/green) benefit from these choices.

I play red too! And get mixed up if not red, planning for someone else's pieces.

I'm getting better though, because of games that have different factions tied to specific colors. I have to play other colors if I want to try other factions. Scythe & Exodus: Proxima Centauri both fall into this category.

None of the people in my group choose green as their first choice so it's never been an issue for me.

At conventions on the other hand, green has on occasion been taken in which case I usually go for blue or red but I'm also fond of purple, orange, and black.

About the only color I really don't like to play as is yellow.

I liked the definition of clear, so cute
I used to pick green but it doesnt bother me anymore.
It seems many people ask for orange, that is my least favorite in games and everywhere else laugh

I am disappointed by this poll. As one can tell from my microbadges, I play purple. If purple is unavailable, I play green. If neither is available, I am too overcome with grief to care and just take whatever awful color is left over laugh.

I also like it when publishers ignore the traditional "basic" colors listed in your poll and just put in a bunch of unusual options, as in Five Tribes or Eight-Minute Empire: Legends.

I'm usually black unless I am playing color assigned games like Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition.
