Colors

Category: Games & Toys

A game played with baseball cards that’s similar to War. Two players take turns flipping baseball cards onto a pile, watching the color of the banner of the team’s name. If a player flips a card with the same color banner as the previous card, she gets to keep the pile.

The card pictured here is a 1983 Topps of Reggie Jackson (after he left the New York Yankees.) If you were playing a game of Colors, you would want your card to match the royal blue banner that says “Angels.” if you threw down another Angels card or a Cardinals card – the banner was the same blue – you would keep your card and win the card of Reggie.
