Frequently Asked Questions

Players of the Color Game frequently ask:

What do the sounds mean? Are they cues? Do they mean I chose right, or wrong?

The sounds you can hear while playing are just here for fun: don’t read anything into them.

My friend and I connected at the same moment, but I can’t see anyone to play live with — is this normal?

Yes. The Color Game divides players into multiple groups, randomly determined. You can only communicate with members of your own group.

Why are the names on the leaderboard (high scores) not the same as the names on the main page?

To ensure maximum player anonymity, Color Gamers are identified in two distinct ways. The name of player X on the High Scores board is not the name that identifies X on the contacts list on the main page. There, X is known by a second name, we call it the “contact name”. X will be knwon under multiple contact names depending on which other player she appears to: Player Y will know her under a certain name, but player B will know her under a different name. That way we make sure the game is as anonymised as possible, and players can’t get in touch in real life.

How can I contact my friends so we can play together?

You can’t. We try to make sure that all interactions inside the Color Game are anonymised. That’s why we have a complex system for pseudonyms.

I accidentally chose the wrong language upon starting the app. How do I change to the right language?

Go to the upper left handside corner, and click the icon there. You are now on the Profile / Profil / Perfil page. Go to Idioma / Sprache / Langue line and change to the language of your choice.

Why can’t I find enough puzzles to solve?

Sometimes you open the app and all the puzzles have been solved by others. That means there’s a lot of demand for puzzles and you can make lots of points by creating your own! Click on “create new puzzle” to do so.
