I have a red teacher in a red bag. In the article description at the side CundCo stated, that there are different colours, but customer can not pick, which one to get. But I was fine with that.

A bit ironic that everyone seems to have at least one copy of The School but me. :D

Only 18 votes thus far, it seems that blue and red teachers are the most popular.

I'm surprised to see so few people wish to collect all the colours, but this is probably because they are are not required to play.

I'm interested in hearing about any variants you might be using the extra meeple for. JT atomico's varient sounds like a good one to try.

A few days are left for voting on this topic!

Yeah, for some reason collecting all six colours was never of interest to me. I hadn't even thought of doing so until people here started talking about tracking down all the variants and how hard getting purple was. Collecting the six bags was of more interest to me, but at the time I stored all my player pieces in my storage case (they no longer fit, unfortunately). But the problem now is that even if I bought all six colours (I only own Yellow, I think), I have five more colours of meeples that don't have bags. I suspect I'll be adding a sixth new colour as soon as light green becomes available as a complete set. So getting the bags only ever seems like half a task, and the Teacher meeples just don't seem necessary strangely. I'd place getting the 70-point scoreboard or the Grey-space board higher on my want list.

Thanks Whaleyland, it's definitely fiddly. The 4 (not 6) teacher bags were randomly distributed with the 6 teachers and now there are more colours than bags, the bags are less appealing. It was one of the reasons I got the awesome bags from Artscow last year!

I bought the 4 Different bags at Essen 2011 and Made sure each bag had the Same colored teacher as its bag.

the other bags and teachers were unofficial (i believe), so no interest in that.

Still waiting on mine because I ordered it recently. Then I can see which color it'll actually be and vote accordingly. I have no personal preference of color. But one is enough, definitely.

I don't really remember the color of my teacher... so not sure were to vote.
Since the color of the teacher is not player active sensitive I don't think I need one in each available color to consider my collection complete.

Red Teacher in a bag with a yellow meeple.  I've not considered having a second, maybe a reflection on how glad I was to leave school back in '84.

I received a blue bag and a green teacher.  My wife, who is a teacher, always plays as green, so this worked out great.
