Are you ingenious? You are when playing this extraordinary game. Combining fun game-play, great components, and real strategy, INGENIOUS will have you addicted. Simple rules, quick playing time, and a clever system makes INGENIOUS, quite simply... Ingenious.

Created by acclaimed game designer, Reiner Knizia. INGENIOUS is a treat for the whole family. The game features balanced options for playing with 2, 3, or 4. players, or even solo play. As the game takes only about 45 minutes, you will want to play many times in one evening.

The game is played on a hex board. 120 equally sized pieces, each consisting of two joined hexes, come with the game. There are symbols on each hex that make up the piece – some pieces have two identical symbols, some have two different symbols (not unlike dominoes). The goal of the game is, through clever placement, to obtain points in the different symbol colors. Points are claimed by placing a piece such that the symbols on it lie next to already-placed pieces with the same symbol.

The game ends when no more tiles can be placed onto the board or when a player reaches the maximum number in every color. Now each player looks to see how many points they scored in the colour they 'scored the least'. Whoever has the most points in their least-scored colour is the winner. Simple.

The author of the game has also come up with solitaire and team play, in which two teams of two play with each player not being able to see his partner’s tiles.
