@pkshreeman Before that change you set the color and call alert, alert is synchronous so it blocks the rendering of the page (putting your color change on the screen) If you reset the board after the alert then the color change is overwritten. By using the timeout (even with 0) it gives the browser a chance to render your change before putting up the alert box.
