Ingenious is a new game based on abstract placement of game tokens. Players are supposed to place colored tiles on a 6-sided board in order to score points, block other opponent's tile placement, and to try to protect themselves from having other players block their pieces.

Test your strategy skills and see if you can beat your opponent before they beat you. Ingenious is an example of other German-style abstract games and can be a lot of fun to play. Give Ingenious a try today!

The player with the best score wins which is determined by the color in the player's score.

Inside the box you'll find 120 tiles, 1 bag, the game board, four score boards, four racks, 24 color pegs and the Ingenious game rules and instructions.

Quote Sarah’s questions. Same doubts. Let us know! Thanks

Same question as Steve. Is it permissible to lay a tile where neither colour of the tile laid matches the colour on an adjacent tile. Also, after the first turn, can you place a lone piece not connected to any other time as long as it fits on a connected empty space?

Greg says:

What happens when you play all six tiles during a play and still have a bonus play left? Do you draw six tiles or does the turn pass to the next player?
Zang says:

I have a tile that has a recycling sign on it, what does that tile represent?
