"Hi, I'm really curious about the coloring of Oriental, Vermont, and Connecticut. I've done a bit of research on the history of this game in the US, and I've played a few different renditions.

But I've never seen them as white. They've always been light blue, with Boardwalk and Park Place being dark blue.

The only set that I've known to change color has been Mediterranean and Baltic. Going from Purple (my preference) to Brown, the current colouring." Sam 23/07/2020

"Hi Sam,
You are right. I wrote this piece few years ago. I can't remember where the 'white' colour came from. I've updated it to light blue.

best regards" Steven 26/07/2020
