Can anyone give some suggestions on making confetti?

I'm trying partigons with fxlinker and it kind of works. All kinds of collision problems and can only use one color for the confetti.

I thought about creating a grid of different colored squares and applying clothfx to it. Will cloth use this as a single object or individually?

Any ideas are appreciated.

Hi, Davewriter. I saw that post, too and downloaded the files, but they didn't work because they're using plugins I don't have. I get the concept, though, and wonder if it's feasible. They're pretty much just stacking square polys and using wind and gravity to disperse them. I'm going to need thousands of these for my effect so I was hoping for a more efficient method.
