Beautiful pics!

While it's not a highly original game, I also think it's a clear, focused design, very well-developed for such a simple one and it also looks great. Out of Metro, Tsuro and this one I think Indigo is the best one.

I enjoy Indigo. Knizia removed the player elimination of Tsuro, simplified the scoring process of Metro, and made a more beautiful game than either. I like them all, but Indigo is the most accessible filler. Nice review!

Crap! Every other review that I've done, I always credit the user who had submitted them. Of course, I forgot all about that this time. Oy. Sorry about that, Laszlo. I'll fix that.
No problem, it is not required at all, even though I like it more that way.

Re: Sometimes you find a color that is just right.
Indigo has been a keeper in our family. I don't bother to carry to board game meetings with my gamers, but I really like playing it with my children.

And indeed, in a game like this a theme would just be a hindrance. At least Indigo looks interesting and is pretty and consistent.

A very good review of one of the best abstracts in recent years. I agree that perhaps its greatest strength is it accessibility.

Sadly largely unheralded here on the geek, although I do sense a growing momentum for this game.

A triumph of style and content. It has fired most other connection games (but not Ta-Yu)

I also just love Ta Yu. I'm lucky to own the blue Kosmos edition, with the fantastic bakelite pieces with the blue river markings. I could play it endlessly, although I'm not certain why. It relaxes me, I think.

I would bet that the user deleted their account, or someone else deleted it for them.
