Over my years of gaming, I have come to realize that there seems to be a strong correlation between player type, personality, and color choice. No matter the game, players of a certain color will always have similar gameplan. It is though the little pieces have their own genetic code that forces them to be played a certain way.

Blue

You are generally the first player to grab a piece out of the box. During the game, you are playing for fun and giggle most of the time. Isn't it fun being with your friends, socializing, laying pretty little tiles out pleasantly? When you play Carcassonne, you carefully arrange the tiles doing your best to mimic the lines of that one Dali painting you saw a couple of years ago. You always trade with other players in Settlers regardless of whether it gives them the win or not. They wouldn't try for the win at your loss would they? Games are for fun, not winning.

Red

When you were young, you always ended up losing blue to your older siblings in games. So you took the next coolest color: RED. However you harbored deep resentment over not having first choice. Red players always play fast and aggressive, it is there goal to win at all costs. God forbid those horrid little preppy Blue players win over you. You need to divide and conquer.

Unfortunately, your aggressive play causes others to gang up on you and now you are an outsider. And your color happens to draw massive amounts of attention as it just doesn't blend in at all. But remember, it's all the Blue player's fault. He just hates you, behind that sweet smile and laugh he is planning your demise.

Green

Who needs to be one of the popular colors? Green is way better. It has a nice color that lets you blend into the background and avoid retaliation. Red is just flashy and draws attention to itself where as you are cool and conniving. You sit in the background and slowly work on your win, manipulating the other players into a duel that leaves you on top.

But, you can't help it, you are always in second. You have insane jealousy of all those colors who can win games. Bah, games are stupid anyways, if you can't win it is obviously the games fault.

Yellow

You always get your color last, otherwise you would never be yellow. Of the four dominant colors, it is the worst and you know it. You hate being yellow, but know you will end up with it so you might as well select it. That one time you luck out and grab another color, you know Blue will just whine until he gets his way. There is a strong liklihood that you are a parent with young children. Hey, if you somehow got them to play a game that you will enjoy, you better let them get first pick on colors if you want to actually play.

And since you know deep down that you are the worst of the main colors, you have an inferiority complex that has made you try and hone your game to incredibly high standards. You somehow manage to win a large amount of games despite your poor color choice. Maybe you are just ignored because you happen to be underendowed in the color department?

Black

Oh beautiful Black, you are the color of pure evil in all games. Look at Euros, any time black is present it is generally as a destructive piece that ruins others play experience. In Settlers, it is the robber that steals from others and discards hands. In Ra, it is the color that wantonly ruins all the carefully hoarded tiles.

It is Ameritrash Incarnate.

By picking Black, you display your love of destruction and the enjoyment of backstabbing. No player will ever try diplomacy with you as they know you will attempt to crush them at the first opportunity. They all cower in fear, for they remember that one time you managed to deploy tanks to their colonies in Puerto Rico. Winning by annhilation is the only option, other methods are for those too weak to play.

White

You are pure and a paragon of virtue in gaming. Your play is flawless and you never make a mistake. Other players view you as a cold machine worthy of admiring. But you do have a kryptonite: DICE. Those foul instruments of Black work mischief with your intricate yet elegant plans. As such, you eschew such lowly means of play and focus on the higher arts of the Euro. Your play is pristine and involves no duplicity. It is purely straightforward but impossible to defeat.

Grey

You are indecisive. Hmm... do I want to play that game or this one? Which color should I be... oh there all taken, I guess I will be grey. Even Yellow picks before you and nobody picks yellow. You don't know which moves to make and sort of wander along throughout the game. It is just mediocre move after mediocre move. You can't decide whether you are going to conquer the Americas or if you are going to lay that tile to make the most picturesque farm. Other players ignore you, knowing that even if you attack them, your whims will change and move on to someone else.

You never lose however, the more aggressive players always attack each other until one is knocked even below you in the rankings. This player secretly loathes themselves knowing they are below your bland play.

Purple

Yeah, so in the three games that have Purple you make sure you select it. You tend to play poorly as you are so excited about having your unpopular color that you end up with settlments on the corner of 2/12/11 and on the seaside of the desert. The other players go out of their way to destroy you as it is fun to kick you when you are down. But you don't care, because THEY HAVE PURPLE! LOOK! More games should have purple, why isn't it popular? Why do you guys keep attacking me? Hey, I'm losing, go attack Black he has 15 pharoahs and 15 monument tiles and he is beginning to build a Star Destroyer... wait a minute, how is he doing that? Is that even legal?

Pink

You are probably the manliest of all manly men. Look how manly I am, I am so secure in my masculinity that I play Pink. See, look how weird it is that I have Pink, isn't it hilarious? But deep downinside, you secretly love the color. You would frolic in a sea of Pink meeples till the end of your days. But that's just stupid, how can it be a sea if it is made up of little wooden figures, aren't seas made of water?

Seriously, look how weird it is that I chose Pink, I need to go drive my big truck now.

Brown

You are very slow, plodding, and methodical in your gameplay. You take 90 minutes to decide what card to play in Fluxx. All other players secretly loathe you, even Grey who can't decide if he would rather eat grass or prime rib. Unfortunately, you usually win causing even the truly virtuous White and the happy Blue to get angry and yell at you. You weren't even elegant and that is by far the ugliest city I have ever seen, how could you possibly win?

You even kind of like the fact that you have the ugliest pieces there are. Only very few games can trump you for ugliness and that's when they include the loser colors like puke green or that bizarre yellowish color.

Orange

You are barely playing the game, no one pays any attention to you yet you never seem to win. You may be ahead for a couple of turns, but you inevitably fall behind the more flashy players before the White or Brown pulls off the win. The cursed Orange pieces are the reason behind it. Somehow it blends the anger of the Red player with the inferiority of the Yellow Player.

Other players need to beware, as the Orange player is the one most likely to go insane and wreck the game. They can't win ever, so why should the continue playing and watch all the others get the glory.

Natural

You are pure Euro. Ameritrash is a foreign concept to you. After all, can there really be games in existence with no wooden pieces? Is that even possible? It defies the laws of nature. Unfortunately you aren't very good at the Euros you love. Your game lacks that certain polish that all other players have. Your play is rough and unfinished though slightly reminiscent of the others, there is just something slightly different about you.
