When you roll an atom on the die, are you allowed to choose a colour that you have already in the counter?

In other words...
First roll was: red / pawn
second roll was: atom / drone

For the second roll can I select a red drone from the bank to put in the counter?

It says you Bust Out as soon as you roll the same color as a piece on the counter.

I take that to mean that when I roll an atom I am not rolling the colour and so can pick any colour without busting.
Is that correct?

We have been playing that you can't take a color you already have taken that turn. Makes the game way easier if you allow it.

The IceDice rules say:
Ice Dice rules wrote:
If you roll the Atom, choose any color you don’t already have on the Counter.

So, no, you can't choose a color you already have.

True. (Or, you could choose the same color if you wanted to force a bust and waste your turn. )

You could before he added that line to the rules (during testing). As it reads, self-busting is not allowed.

Funny what you miss when reading rules.
Thanks for clarifying.
