Depends on player count and seating order. (Among other things.)

Yes, especially if I am player 1 or 2. Otherwise I an really fond of the el cheapo VP/influnence combo that comes with the cathedral.

I do find myself somehow balanced...and the last game I ended up going heavy yellow (needed money to make tradesmen) but all else being equal I like white.

Re: What colour do you play?
I've been teaching the game pretty much every play, so I've been going first alot of the times...as such, I've been favoring red more so than the other colors, although white would be my second choice. It's hard to pass up that red 6 if you're going first since many people are reluctant to use a red 6 to chase you out instead of on a card.

Indeed! Red 6 by itself is 2 influence or maybe even 3. Apart from you voting Red Concentrate, there are a few votes for R & W. Don't these both get expensive?

In my games, I generally get most of my income from cards or having my dice purchased. Any cash I get from the $10 is nice, but I generally would rather have the dice...after all, having a red die purchased gets you back your $2 and you actually get an extra $1 if a white die is purchased...and that's if they're purchased for use as singles...they're worth even more if used in sets of 2 or 3.

Re: What colour do you play?
When placing initial meeples, I will take Red 6 if it's available, almost without exception. Otherwise I guess I tend to gravitate a little toward White for initial placement, though will generally prefer the leftmost Yellow spots to the rightmost White spots, and Red 5 to a number of other spots. Once we start turning over Activity cards and gaining suspicions about which Character cards are out there, focus will generally shift.
