Just be clear -- I'm talking about this rule: "Bn iff the koan contains a color that was present on the shirt I was wearing when the game started."
Spock recreates the game on the Enterprise, and can no longer see your shirt. Neither did he take note of the colour, since it wasn't part of the pieces or their orientation to the game surface. Ergo, I think this fails the Spock rule.
