Hello fellow gamers. I’m sitting in my study thinking upon today’s list. I find the psychology of what color we choose as our player piece to be a fascinating one. I’ve done a significant amount of research on the subject in my spare time and I feel that I have a fairly decent grasp on these sort of things; as an amateur. I dabble.
I took this to the Meeple Gamers collective and we discussed this over our weekly zoom discussion on all things gaming. Best games, prettiest art, acceptable house rules, and the best material from smoking jackets; it is velvet. I opened the topic of player color choices. I was surprised at the pushback on this. Each person had a different opinion on the best color to pick when playing a game. Of course this is pure folly.
After much debate in the halls of our gaming intelligentsia we settled on a few ideas that we felt would standardize these choices from now on. It’s not exactly the list I would have chosen but I find it acceptable. Of course you’re always free to make your own determinations, and they don’t have to be exactly the same as ours. Many people enjoy being wrong.
With that said, let me ready my pipe, top off my snifter with brandy, and let’s begin.

From experience I know there will be a few among you who think that white Ninjas are more skilled shouldn’t White be the best player color? No, this list is about the color you choose and Ninjas never chose White, it is resented to them as a sign of respect. Even then players who have actually earned the right to play White will.
And for that one guy in the back with his hand up about Red Ninja’s…That’s a comic book thing, leave Electra out of this.
Until Next Time.
There you have it folks. The Discerning Gamers Top 10 Player Colors. I hope you found some insight in it. In fact let me know in the comment what color you prefer. As for me, I’m off to give myself a bit of an evening. The time is late and my game group should be meeting soon. I look forward to a spirited game.
Have a good night. Until next time, stay safe and be well.
And in case you were wondering, I choose Violet.
