And then to hammer the point home, he writes one of his craziest columns yet.

And for MaRo that bar’s already set pretty high.

Article, shmarticle.

You want to know what’s really crazy? He’s actually willing to print a sixth color.

Pro #4: No One Would See It Coming
It’s funny how for all the talk about a sixth color, no one believes we would do it. Yet I’ve been on design teams that have discussed it seriously three different times. And even with me telling you that factoid, you still won’t think we’ll do it. Not deep down. And maybe you’re right. You see that? See what I did? I put the doubt back. Because if we do decide to do it (and again note the “if”) we do want to surprise you.

I believe he’ll do it. What do you all think, purple? Wise

Con #3 – It Would Be Magic Jumping the Shark
One day a man named Jon Hein and his friends were sitting around discussing odd topics when they got onto this strange topic: when did Happy Days hit the turning point from being a good show to being a bad one. After much discussion the group came to the consensus that it occurred in an episode titled “Hollywood, Part 3” when Fonzie jumped over a shark. It then dawned on them that many things (not just television – music, sports, celebrity, politics, etc.) had a “jumping the shark” moment and thus was the expression born.

I think many players feel the sixth color would be Magic’s “jumping the shark” moment. Why? Because many players see the desire for a sixth color as a thing that best goes unrequited. Sort of like a couple on a television show (Moonlighting, Cheers, etc.) The fun is in the potential of them hooking up. Once they actually do there’s nothing but let down. At least that’s how the theory goes.

Sort of like he won’t put out a multicolor set with just four color combinations.
