My favorite color is blue. I have now played (or started) 7 or 8 games, and I got purple on EVERY SINGLE GAME, no exceptions. Purple is my third-choice color. Someone else got blue in each of these games, so I know blue is available. It has been different players on different games, not the same person always getting blue. It seems nearly impossible that not only has every game I've played by now included another paid player who chose blue as their favorite, but also included another paid player who preferred my second-choice color, so I would naturally get my third choice on every game. Something seems broken?
Anyone else here use favorite colors? Are you ever getting your first choice color when playing Catan? Are you seeing any other odd pattern?
