One way to make a hacker laugh: hold a red index card in front of him/her with “GREEN” written on it, or vice-versa (note, however, that this is funny only the first time).

– From the New Hacker’s Dictionary

Hue Knew? is a game based on this principle, but it doesn’t look like it captures the spirit as well as it could have.

The game comes with forty disks, on which nine color names are printed in nine colors. Two of the color names are in the correct color. Reveal a disk, the first to grab the pawns corresponding to the correctly colored color names gets a point. Repeat.

I guess I was hoping for color names to be revealed one at a time, and players have to shout the right color (as opposed to name) to gain points.
