Are you one of the few to have mastered Ingenious? Ready for a new challenge? How about three new challenges?
Ingenious Challenges is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! Created by renowned game designer Reiner Knizia, Ingenious Challenges is a board game of mental dexterity for 2-4 players. Retaining the spirit of its predecessor, Ingenious Challenges is made up of three unique games that each focus on matching symbols while varying the types of matches made.
Test your wits in the Card Challenge by strategically playing cards from your hand to match the symbols of cards on the table. Each card has two symbols on it and each player keeps a faceup card in front of him. This way, the current player can match the symbols on the card he just played to any card on the table. Manage your hand and keep a close eye on your neighbor’s card during this challenge.
In the Dice Challenge, tempt fate by deducing when to keep your best roll. You only get three rolls, so knowing when to keep your result or to gamble for a better one is the difference between victory and defeat. Each face of the dice features a unique symbol that can be matched to any other player’s dice. Will you accept two matches or will you try for three?
The Tile Challenge will make you risk it all for additional points. If your tile matches, you can take the points right away or toss caution into the wind and draw an additional tile. If the new one doesn’t match, you score no points that turn. If it does match, you will get points for both matches!
With three new ways to test your mental mettle there is no better time than now to stand up and shout “Ingenious!” Head to your local retailer today and grab your copy!
From the mind of renowned game designer Reiner Knizia, Ingenious is a puzzle strategy game of tile placement. 2-4 players match colored symbols to score points, keeping their lowest score above their opponents. Ingenious Challenges adds three unique games in the spirit of Ingenious; the Dice Challenge, the Card Challenge, and the Tile Challenge.
So this sounds like Ingenious Challenges does not include the components of the original Ingenious. Is that right? I've never played, but if these three new games are in the same box as the original, I might like to try them all out.
Great game. Though it should be said that I don't think anyone actually shouts "Ingenious!".
