Sprouts (Brussels sprouts, resp.) are two-player topological games, invented by Michael Paterson and John Conway (1967). The games start with p dots (p crosses resp.), have simple rules, last for finitely many moves, and the player who makes the last move wins. In the misere versions, the player who makes the last move loses. We make an attempt to make such games colored, preserving the esthetical interest and balance of them. The analysis of these colored games is a joint work with Alason Lakhani, Haile Gilroy and Owen Henderschedt at Auburn University.
