The game I've been looking for
I don't ask for much in a game, but far too many games fall short. After buying a couple of games a week, looking for something that can hold my attention, for something that is both challenging and enjoyable, for something that will get harder as I get better, I can now quit looking. This is a great game. Yes, it's a logic game, but there's a zenlike feel to it as well. (unlike some, I'm even okay with the graphics)
Keep it simple!
Pipes captures the essense of a perfect casual game- it's absorbing but doesn't demand a lot of time, and I find myself pulling it up far more often than other games with more garish graphics and sound. Pipes has no sound at all, in fact, making it a great 'stealth' game for the office or while waiting for a table at a restaurant.
Fun, addictive, and great to kill time
I love this game. Because multiple board sizes are available, this can keep you busy for one minute or one hour. Somehow, the game doesn't get old. The interface is attractive, too, which is important to me (colors other than blue would be great, though).
