Indigo has been a big hit with the kids and grown ups in our family! This maze building game involves strategy and cooperation. Easy to learn to play. Recommended for approximately ages 7+. This post includes affiliate links to the game on Amazon.
The way to win the game of Indigo is to is to use the tiles to build passageways that bring gems to your goals. As you play you create a winding maze and you have to watch where that maze is going – it can change quickly!
This is one of the most unique games I’ve played in that it is both cooperative and competitive. During play participants get a chance to work with every other person playing at some point in the game. This is because you have multiple goals that you can move gems towards and each person shares one goal with each other person playing. This made for really funny and fascinating game play as we made alliances, broke them, then came back together.
Hard to explain, but really fun.
In three words: laughing, surprising, pathways
Recommended for: Family game night or family gatherings. Kids and grown ups who like mazes will enjoy this. Families who like to make jokes and have fun talking and laughing about game play will love it. There is no real background story to Indigo, so as we’ve played our family has been laughing a lot as we make up our own reasons for acquiring gems (silly political jokes mostly…).
