Rules to Play


Ingenious box cover art with different shapes formed with different colors.

In Ingenious, a.k.a. Einfach Genial, players take turns placing colored domino-style tiles on a game board, scoring for each line of colored symbols that they enlarge. The trick, however, is that a player's score is equal to their worst-scoring color, not their best, so they need to score for all colors instead of specializing in only one or two.

The chart indicating Ingenious requires 1-4 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 2, plays in 30-45 minutes, features Abstract strategy themes, and offers Hand management, highest lowest scoring, pattern building, team based game, tile placement Mechanics
