  • Summary: In Ingenious, players place hexagonal chips of six different colors on a hexagonal board, scoring points, blocking opponents' tile placement and trying to protect themselves from being blocked by their opponents. The chips are like hexagonal dominoes, have two hexes connected, and each hexIn Ingenious, players place hexagonal chips of six different colors on a hexagonal board, scoring points, blocking opponents' tile placement and trying to protect themselves from being blocked by their opponents. The chips are like hexagonal dominoes, have two hexes connected, and each hex containing a different color. Once no chips can be placed on the board, the game is over. The player who has the lowest amount of points for any of the six colors loses. Game strategy requires that you score points for each color, and this requires concentration and strategy. Like chess, Ingenious is easy to start playing, but virtually impossible to master. [Merscom] Expand

  1. The game is designed well and is wholly representative of the board game, but the fun factor is missing. For just a few more dollars, players can play the real thing around the table and have more fun.
  2. The main problem with Ingenious is the lack of content and value, even for a budget title.
  3. Ingenious is a mediocre board game that isn’t as fascinating as it could be.

It's a good implementation technically, but my comment after the first game was "that's IT? Nothing more?" If I'd had a demo to play first, I would not have purchased this game. Expand
