"Great game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fantastic game however I received a different version than the one shown in the pictures. The main differences are the scoring blocks shown above are replaced with plastic pegs and the main box is red. From other reviews I have read online it appears the red box set also has a lower component quality.

Ingenious is the new abstract placement game from internationally-renowned game designer Reiner Knizia. Players place colored tiles on the hexagonal board, scoring points, blocking opponents’ tile placement, and trying to protect themselves from being blocked by their opponents.

Marvelously elegant and compulsively replayable, Ingenious is an excellent introduction to German-style abstract board games. It’s ingeniously simple, and simply ingenious!
