I've been staying out of the Coloretto discussion because I've only
played it twice, and want to try it a few more times to see if more
experience changes my perception of it. But with that caveat: I found
it very dull, and the "press your luck" element is especially
annoying-- your main decision each turn is whether to pick up a pile
or draw another card and hope it doesn't help your opponents (or end
up screwing you when it's your turn again). A similar feature turns
me off of Ra and Medici, although it's a bit different there because
of the auctions.
For what it's worth, I love 6 Nimmt. I also love King's Breakfast.
Neither of them have much in common with Coloretto other than being
light filler non-trick-taking card games...
