CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
A game of intricate pathways and unexpected twists.
Players build pathways and exit routes for the precious gems they are tyring to collect.
Indigo features a hexagon shaped game board on which players develop gem routes to move precious stones along paths that they develop into their collection. Players can work together or separately to lay the route tiles that provide the paths they must travel on their way to exit the board with the most gems. Players can share routes and exits so that they can both benefit, but the game is won by the player who collects the most points from the gems successfully removed from the board. Players score three points for the sapphire gem, the most precious, two points for emerald gems and one for amber gems.
Players Can Build Alliances to Achieve their Own Success
While Indigo is a competitive game, players can work together to lay pathways in their quest to earn gems, learning about the benefit of cooperation and alliances. A strategy game that encourages players to think ahead and plan exit routes for the gems, players also learn about goal-setting, cause and effect and sharing. In some cases, shared routes mean both players earn gems rather than just one of them. Such a strategy could be the best method for winning the game.
Colorful Game Engages with Gems
Indigo is a hands-on game for a wide range of ages. The colorful game engages players to create a game board of treasure routes that change each time they play, since the pathways they construct will be different every game. The smooth glass gems and beautifully illustrated game board provide both tactile and visual appeal.

If you like and are familiar with that first list of games above, then you are going to find Indigo on the "light" side, even lighter than the games on that list. But I think you will find it fun. It is a great "filler" game: something to play that is quick and easy, maybe while you are waiting for others to arrive. The world needs great filler games, and now we have another one.
If you like and are familiar with that second set of games--the old ones that so many of us grew up on--I would urge you to try something like Indigo, to see if there might be a new world of more contemporary games that you might find you enjoy.Read more ›
Not so with Indigo. The concept is straightforward: each player picks a color and then tries to route gemstones to their respective exits. The color of the gemstone indicates its worth, and the player who has the most points--but not necessarily the most gems--at the end of the game wins.
At the start of the game, the hex tiles are shuffled, and then players take turns flipping a hex over and placing it on the main board. The hexes contain "roads" that twist and turn in various directions, and these "roads" determine where the gems exit the game board. The game is pretty fast paced and it's also unpredictable; just as you think you've set a gem up to head into your exit, another player can place a hex that completely changes the direction the gem is traveling. Because of this, it's important to think strategically and to decide when to allow your opponents to earn gems in the interest of snagging the higher-value gems for yourself.
We play this game with our nine-year-old daughter, and she took to it quickly. The game not only encourages strategizing, it requires some skills at visualizing as you have to look at where the hexes can be placed and picture what outcome will result.Read more ›
The game pieces are very nicely made. The tiles are thick and sturdy. I don't see any printing mistakes. The artwork is beautiful and matches with the "feel" of the game.
As others have stated, the game is like a slightly more complex variation on Tsuro. You place tiles on the board, and when your tile extends the path of a gem, you move that gem. In Tsuro, up to eight people can play, and players are eliminated one-by-one, which means that the first player eliminated has to wait for everyone else. In Indigo, up to four can play, but everyone plays until the end. The artwork in Indigo is also brighter and easier to see than in Tsuro.
So now some criticisms:
Like the game Sealand, the game has a few board layout issues that make setup more complicated than necessary. The blue tiles are always placed in the same location and the same orientation, so it would have been simpler to just paint those patterns onto the board. Of course, with the tiles in place, the board looks better.
The screens are used to hide your score and your tiles from the other player. That seems unnecessary. Anyone can count the gems as they are being claimed by the players, so I don't see the point behind hiding scores, and you don't need a screen to hide your tile.
The game also offers a "tactical" game variant. Instead of having only one tile in your hand, you have two, so that you can choose which one to play during your turn.Read more ›
