Ingenious is a game that is in a league of its own. Quick to play, bueatiful and one of the more "clever" board games.^The game involves scoring points by placing your color tiles on a hexagonal board while trying to block your oponents from scoring points. Although it sounds simplistic, the game actually is a real challenge.^The game has a nearly unlimited amount of strategies and with it's unique scoring system, every game is different and challenging.
Lay out the board and place all the tiles into the black bag. Take a tile rack for each player and start with 6 tiles from the bag. Place your wooden cube markers on the colour symbols (number 0) on the score-boards. Each tile has 2 symbols. The object of the game is to place a tile with one of its symbols next to a similar one already on the board and to score as many lines of colours going in a straight line from each of the 2 symbols on the tiles. As you score each turn, you move your marker along the scoreboard. When the players have completely filled the main playing board with tiles, then the game is over. The winner is the player whose "worst" marker has advanced the most!See all Product Description

Initially, i played it against only with a gaming friend of mine and we quickly went from having no idea about what strategy to use, to thinking quite hard about what we were doing. Like any number of great games, it's very easy to learn but you could play for years without ever perfecting a single winning tactic.
That said, if you don't want to put that much thought into it, it's still a really enjoyable game. Unlike, for example Scrabble, you're not having to think in a way that warrants silence and deep concentration; I've taken it to the pub to play with mates and you can play whilst chatting away (and drinking). I've played it with my family, who are increasingly resistant to elongated instructions, and they all got it and enjoyed it.
For all it's simplicity though, there must be a key to winning - i rarely beat my gaming mate and my partner rarely beats me.
No little warnings, or slight negatives, this is a fantastic game and i'd recommend it happily to anyone.
Overall, a great game.
I bought the travel version: we have many games and space is becoming a premium in the games cupboard, and we were abroad for Xmas so it had to fit in our suitcase easily. It is indeed quite compact but nicely finished. The fabric bag for the tiles is very handy. The only thing that could be improved on are the scoring "pins" and the point markings: the pins are really small, hard to handle and easy to loose if you play in the car or on the plane for instance, the points marks are not contrasted with the board and hard to see.
But apart from that, it is just brilliant.
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.
No reason why anyone under 8 couldn't play the game itself, except for the unmanageably flimsy build quality of the components which require firm, but gentle and steady handling!! An extra quid or two per game would have made a good idea into a game which is much more pleasurable to play.

Really fun game, requires thinking. Like that the objective is a little bit different to other games - e.g. you have to think about not just progressing in one area, but all. Read morePublished 4 months ago by 1234
