Ingenious is an abstract tile placement game that is quick, simple to learn, and fun to play. Each player has tiles to place on the board, and one tile is placed each turn. The game is scored by counting the number of like symbols that occur in a continous chain you’ve just placed. So, for example, placing a piece with a circle and triangle will earn you points based on the number of circles in the chain, and the number of triangles in the chain.

The winner is the person who has the most “least points” scored for any particular symbol, meaning, look at the lowest point total you have for your symbols, and that’s the score you have.

This is a game that’s easy to learn, and very fun to play. Highly recommended.
