Can you make green greener?
« on: March 10, 2019, 12:31:39 PM »
Prehistory:
For my annual tournament with expansions I have taken from local distributor some basic sets. This time they (sets) were messed up, and they offered to me to do the job: make all sets as complete as possible. It took me 2 complete evenings to sort everything out, and I was able to create 23 complete sets, with many-many spare tile left. For such a job they gave me a 45 EUR gift card! :D Very generous!
Now, on topic: also they gave me unneeded expansion German Castles, which spend some time on sun with one corner. This created an interesting effect - ugly green became comfortable green! Just curious - is it possible to fix all other ugly green tiles? :o What do you think? Worth a try? ;)

23 sets, that's well 1656 tiles ??? :o

Well done, hope the tournament will get awesome.

About those castles, maybe I need to lay them in the sunlight to. Is it some sort of special effect or so ???
Maybe you can try it further out with those tiles, put the other side also in the sunlight. ;)

Considering that these tiles are already useless, this seems like a good idea.
Looking forward to seeing the result of the process.

That sunlight trick is amazing! Buy all the dark tiles you can find, make them all 'proper' green, and sell them on eBay for a fortune! Everyone in the world except Decar will want them!  >:D

Looking at that original image I would have thought the "good" green was the bit of the tile that hadn't been exposed to sunlight, and the bit that was bluer had been bleached by the sun - just like a lot of the spines of books on my bookshelf that have caught the (lower angled) winter sun over the many years they've been sitting there! But certainly worth experimenting with - any idea how long they might have been left?

You could also scan the tiles, and use Photoshop to change the Hue and Saturation ... it would be quicker  ;)

People will still moan about the blue roofs even if they are blue.

Tournament went OK, not so much participants (15), but a lot of fun was guaranteed :)

I think wolnic is right: I compared my original GC tiles and they have "good" green, which is on half of two tiles. Of course, I could still do an experiment and make them at least all the same, but it will be "bad" green. Good project for my son, actually :D And - I have no idea how long they have been left on sunlight.
