Final sentence of the card reads "Anyway, there's a number in the image above. What is it?" (Alright, that amounts to two sentences, but hey, coffee, bear with me here)

How about the answer having absolutely nothing to do with the colour blindness test, but just being a case of interpreting the question correctly..."there's a number in" "the image above" which would then make it:-

Quite possibly wrong, but it just had a simplicity which I liked,

Great idea! That is very likely! Or maybe it could be something about the number of plates? Although that would be some job to count ...

+ There's a colourblind web page filter here which can simulate how different colourblind people would see a given page:

http://colorfilter.wickline.org/

So I filtered KKsweety's scan through it to check for the different types of colourblindness, hoping something else would show, but only ever came up with '45'.

Possibly, although 45 is more likely. This is one of the easiest cards in the pack, after all.

We will only really know once the facility to enter answers and earn points is up and running.

Hello, I'm new so I apologise if I do anything wrong, but I wondered whether the answer to the Ishihara card might be 9 as the card number is #009 and the visible numeral is 45 and 4 plus 5 make 9. What does everyone think? Too much of a stretch?

Great page, phoenix ... thanks.

I love reading about colorblindness as it's something I've been affected by all my life. I wonder if there are any other players out there who can't read the Ishihara card, either.

Also, a good website with the same example shown on the card:

The First Speaker
 Quote: The Ishihara color test is a test for color blindness. It was named after its designer, Dr. Shinobu Ishihara (1879-1963), a professor at the University of Tokyo, who first published his tests in 1917. It consists of a number of colored plates, on each plate is printed a circle made of many different sized dots of slightly different colors, spread in a random manner. Within the dot pattern, and differentiated only by color, is a number. What, or even if, a number is visible indicates if and what form of color blindness the viewer has. The full test consists of thirty-eight plates, but the existence of a deficiency is usually clear after no more than four plates. Common plates include a circle of dots in shades of green and light blues with a figure differentiated in shades of brown or a circle of dots in shades of red, orange and yellow with a figure in shades of green; the first testing for protanopia and the second for deuteranopia.

Its from Wikipedia, under Ishihara color test.

Well, a lot of people know e, and there are a lot of other numbers with actual names that people know - ten for instance, or four hundered and sixteen... Maybe I'm just being silly...

I disagree. Look at Red #017 - Easy As.... "Here's a phrase that ends in PIE, and a picture of a PIE, made of a bunch of digits from PI, with a mention of some guy who recited a bunch of PI, and BTW, PI is really the only number with an actual name that many people know. Now, what is this number?" This could be as simple as 45.

Apologies to anyone still stuck on #017 who I may have spoiled it for. :Þ

I don't understand how that can be the answer, there's not even the slightest hint of a puzzle! Its only a colourblindness test. It just doesn't make sense that they'd have it, even if it is only a red card.
