The rules state to omit the red pieces in a 3-player game.

Why the RED pieces? Why not one of the other colors?

I was just wondering if there was a specific reason why.

That's because the basic setup described in the rules works better if you remove the red prieces if you only play three players. If you're not using the basic setup you can of course select any colors you want.

I also have the 5/6 Player Extension. Even with just 3 to 4 player games, I give all players the option to use brown or green if they wish.
