Colors of our wooden tokens

Our offer includes more and more colors and their names can sometimes be confusing, each color system carries their systematics and nomenclature differently. So the same name may look very different in two different color systems. That is why we find the best equivalents of our unusual colors in other places.

  • Black – standard black color.
  • Blue – a very classic blue color. It is much darker than Light blue, but also much lighter than Inky. In low light, it can be mistaken for Navy Blue.
  • Bright green – bright, intense green color, despite the fact that it is bright, it completely covers the texture of wood, other terms that you can meet are Lime green / Kelly green (Wikipedia)
  • Brown – is a bit darker than the classic brown color, in some color systems it is described as: Pearl copper (RAL), Seal brown / Caput mortuum (Wikipedia).
  • Cherry – very intense red, it is the strongest red color you can meet. This shade has been prepared especially for us.
  • Fuchsia – one of our last colors, exceptionally beautiful and with a very nice covering of wood. In Wikipedia, a similar color is described as Hot pink / Cyclamen. The RAL is Heather violet.
  • Gold – a very dark yellow color, its other names: Honey yellow (RAL) Bronze / Ocher (Wikipedia).
  • Gold Metalic – it is a metallic color, which means that it shines and looks a bit like gold.
  • Gray – a standard gray color, distinguishable from the others. Wikipedia – Cool gray, RAL – Telegrey 2.
  • Green – a beautiful green color. Darker than Bright Green and lighter than Turqoise. RAL – Signal green, Wikipedia – Office green.
  • Inky – the second (after black) darkest of our colors. Very dark blue, a little purple, RAL describes this color as Ultramarine blue.
  • Lavender is an exceptional color, bright and very pleasant, in the Wikipedia color list it is described as Lavender (floral).
  • Light blue – is a lighter blue color, in some color dictionaries it is referred to as Process Cyan or Light Blue (RAL).
  • Light brown – a light brown color, Wikipedia describes it as Redwood or Chestnut, in the RAL system it is a color classified as red and the closest to Brown red or Coral red.
  • Lime – a very nice light color with a green shade, in Wikipedia the Lime color is similar to our color, in the RAL system it is closest to Yellow green.
  • Natural – pawns in this color have their natural color, they are covered with colorless varnish.
  • Navy blue – an off-blue color, we sometimes refer to it as dark denim, Wikipedia describes it as Azure blue.
  • Orange – a classic orange color, there is no other color in our palette that our orange would be similar to. Wikipedia – Orange (Pantone), RAL – RAL orange.
  • Pink – rather intense pink color, this color is also known as: HotPink (Windows X), Brink pink / Hot pink / Cyclamen (Wikipedia).
  • Red – classic red color, strong and very nice. It can be placed in the middle between our pink color and the Cheery one. Not to be confused with any other color, but it is closest to Cherry. RAL – Pure red, Wikipedia – Red.
  • Silver Metalic – it is a metallic color, which means that it shines and looks a bit like silver.
  • Tan – a color prepared specially for our order, in very low light it can be mistaken for the Natural one, but Tan completely covers the wood structure and this is what distinguishes it from the Naturlane color. In Wikipedia it is also described as Tan (one of the shades of brown). In the RAL system, the color is Green beige.
  • Turquoise – a dark green color, combined with our bright green creates a perfect pair. the RAL color system describes it the same, Wikipedia refers to it as Teal or Myrtle green
  • Yellow – a classic yellow color, not to be confused with any of our color palettes. Wikipedia – School bus yellow, RAL – Zinc yellow.
  • Violet – This is a dark purple color, sometimes referred to as Rebecca purple (Wikipedia) or Pure Mauve (RAL). We also have a beautiful much brighter version of this color called lavender.
  • White – a white color that reveals the texture of the wood a bit, but thanks to this you can see that our pawns are made of wood.

We tried to find the best match of our color in the RAL system or Wikipedia, but the similarity may not be perfect.
