The problem with cream is that, when you get scarlet, you still only know the letter that you already knew. It would be nice if it intersected somewhere other than the first letter.

OK. Do you have any suggestions? Because it was hard enough creating the crossword and then trying to find colours which fit that were sort of well known.

TLDR: not that easy to add colours to the crossword.

I suggest OCHRE so that the C intersects with SCARLET.

Don’t be such a nitpicker and enjoy the quiz

Can you even imagine how long it took fuse to make this quiz and you’re complaining about the simplest of things

It's just a suggestion. They didn't say it was a bad quiz or that it was easy to make.

Wonderful! I'm amazed at how you made this with all colors being fairly distinct and having one answer. Even some of those I didn't know (e 4, w 4) I was able to get from the crossword clues.
