Get a color, give a title using it Game

The poster names a color, and the respondent gives the title of an artistic work (book, song, film, whatever) using it, then gives another color.

To start with an easy one:

The Color Purple

Next up: Red

Red Dragon

Next up: Blue

Perfect Blue

Next Up: Teal

This is probably cheating, but the Big Steal.


It’d be allowed if this was Jeopardy! so I think it’s okay.

The Black Dahlia (the Ellroy novel)


The Pink Panther.


Here’s a bunch, just to save time:
[li]The Deep Blue Good-by (1964)[/li][li]Nightmare in Pink (1964)[/li][li]A Purple Place for Dying (1964)[/li][li]The Quick Red Fox (1964)[/li][li]A Deadly Shade of Gold (1965)[/li][li]Bright Orange for the Shroud (1965)[/li][li]Darker than Amber (1966)[/li][li]One Fearful Yellow Eye (1966)[/li][li]Pale Gray for Guilt (1968)[/li][li]The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper (1968)[/li][li]Dress Her in Indigo (1969)[/li][li]The Long Lavender Look (1970)[/li][li]A Tan and Sandy Silence (1971)[/li][li]The Scarlet Ruse (1972)[/li][li]The Turquoise Lament (1973)[/li][li]The Dreadful Lemon Sky (1974)[/li][li]The Empty Copper Sea (1978)[/li][li]The Green Ripper (1979)[/li][li]Free Fall in Crimson (1981)[/li][li]Cinnamon Skin (1982)[/li][li]The Lonely Silver Rain (1984)[/li][/ul]

No offense, but doesn’t that kind of defeat the point of the game?

But think of all the time we saved! :rolleyes:

I get the feeling that BrotherCadfael’s response is the kind we’d get if we were playing this game with Data.

Since Brother Cadfael didn’t actually answer this one:

Marooned in Realtime (book by Vernor Vinge)

Fuchsia (most weirdly-spelled color ever?)

Back to the Fuchsia.


Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid.


La Chartreuse de Parme (what ? So it’s not called that way in English. Faites moi un procès.)




Lime Street


What is it with the French and colorful…colors?
Un Taxi Mauve


Sorry, guys, but I just had to do it…


As spoken by Inspector Clouseau, “The Ruling Class” would work.


Orange County
