In other words, if our board shows 3s in all colors, and I'm about to play what I know is a 4, do I need to say which color I'm playing it to?

Definitely NOT!

You just say "I'm playing this" and put it on the table and see what happens.

I guess we're gluttons for punishment.

Good plan: creating situations where your partners know it's safe to play a card without having to know exactly which card it is.

A thumb for the Subject title. At first I thought it was spam, then realised the play and had a smile.
Cheers

Thanks, everyone. This game just got a lot easier.

Maybe I just stumbled upon a new variant

Actually this variant is in the rules
At least in the french edition. But it comes with other specific rules too.

Woah. We've been playing this wrong the whole time? We played that you had to play it in the right spot. I always felt that was weird, considering the 1s, but I never bothered to read the French rulebook.

I use this as a variant to make the game easier, depending on my play group.

To make it easier: When you play a card, you have the option of naming the color and number on the card before you play it. If you do, and get it correct, gain one clue. If you get it wrong, you lose one clue.

You could also use this variant to make it harder I - requiring naming (or at least require naming the color OR number). I haven't needed to yet though.
