This review is from: Ingenious Strategy Game (Toy)
We have owned this game for years and whole family still thoroughly enjoy playing it. Originally and rather pretentiously it was called Mensa as it was designed by people belonging to Mensa. Don't let that put you off though as it is a quick game to pick up. It involves matching colours (or shapes for the colour blind) in as long a string as possible to reach a specific total. Matching one colour only is no good as all six have total goals to obtain.

The tiles are tough and durable and the board is robust. It can be played by 5 year olds on a simple level but is great for teenagers and the rest of the family. You can play tactically and if you want to play dirty you can block your opponents (but expect the same in return). Every game is different and it can be played repeatedly without becoming boring. We all found it quite addictive and I would say it is good value for money.

This is my opinion as it's my review. Take it or leave it.

I'm a likeable kind of guy ... also a member of Mensa ... shame you think Mensa is pretentious ... you are wrong ... also wrong about the original name of the game, which was "Connections" ... it's a good game by your own admission, and your review is accurate except for the rather prejudiced comment about Mensa, a society about which you most probably know very little.

I don't know if the designer is a member of Mensa or not.

But the name attached to the previous version was merely a licensing deal - the publishers thought they'd sell more if the Mensa name was used. Clearly they didn't (or the licence fee was too high) hence the rebrand.
