Abstract
The Color Game gaming app (2018–2019) invited players from all over the world to invent a visual language without words. Participants took part in a referential communication task where a Sender had to indicate a colour to a Receiver, with the help of black and white symbols. They could freely choose which other players they interacted with, and play repeatedly with their chosen contacts. This paper presents the Color Game dataset, accessible at https://osf.io/9yc25/, which records all interactions between app players. In its final cleaned-up version, the dataset contains 347,606 games by 2,535 players, from more than 100 different countries, speaking 80 different languages. This companion paper describes the app’s workings and history.
