Last week on Instagram Stories I shared an online game that a friend introduced me to. It’s called Colorfle–like Wordle but for color theory. I’m not much of a games person, but I was hooked! I’ve been spotting some board games and apps about color over the last many months and it got me thinking-maybe I am a games person but just haven’t found the right games for someone with my interests?! Could it be? Will I become a games person after all? I love how games brings people together and gives something to do when you don’t want to watch TV, so I challenged myself to find some more games about color so I can hop on the train.
I continue to be shocked at the statistics that show how color is disappearing around the world.
