I like the idea of Gray as a "special" color, and there's actually a good
reason to keep it that way.  If you include Gray as one of the colors in a
Treehouse set, you won't be able to use Volcano Caps with that set to play
Volcano (or any other Volcano Cap game).

I think Brown would be a great opaque color.  I also like the idea of
"Smoke" as a translucent color.  Other than that, I don't have much
preference, other than "make sure they're different enough to be easily
distinguished from the other colors."
