I was playing "Snakes and Ladders" with my cousin. My brother came and scattered all the pawns. After looking for the pawns for a while I could find the red, green, yellow pawns and three blue pawns. (One blue pawn was missing.)

I've found all the red, yellow and green ones, now I just need to find one blue one.

Does "all" sound natural here?

Thank you:)

  • I don't think you mean pawns. I think you mean pieces. In terms of games, I've only knows chess to have pawns. Commented Oct 8, 2019 at 1:44

I think it would sound better to a native English speaker if you said

I've found all of the red, yellow and green ones, now I just need to find one more blue one.

or possibly just

I've found them all except for a blue one.

  • The second one does not seem right. There are three complete colours, with four pawns each. Commented Oct 7, 2019 at 15:22
  • @WeatherVane you are right, I misread the OP. I'll edit my answer an hope it meets with your approval! Commented Oct 7, 2019 at 15:35
  • Yes, and obviously I meant "the first one". Commented Oct 7, 2019 at 15:46
