This is a list of the 239 games that should also work with just the pyramids that come with Pyramid Arcade, but only if you pair up colors (e.g. treat two different colors as one color), making five colors, each with six trios. A logical set of pairings is Red with Orange, Yellow with Clear, Green with Cyan, Blue with Purple, and Black with White. Due to the wiki's restriction on query size, there might be some games that require 'Other Equipment' not easily accessible, so check the column.
