Ingenious – The board game for PC and MAC

Color-matching game with a typical Knizia twist in the scoring: you can win by losing in all colors save one, as long as the opponent's score in that one is the lowest for any color. Unfortunately, this means that your overall play is not important as long as you can block off that one color late in the game. The master has done better work.

No multiplayer AI Great value for money but the absence of multiplayer AI is a drawback.


Good, but lonely Needs online matchmaking multiplayer desperately

Decent port I've enjoyed playing the board game for several years, and I was happy to see it had been ported to an app. It's easier to play solitaire at a decent speed in this digital adaptation. That said, the lack of support for more than two players is annoying. The AI is indeed fairly challenging, but mainly because it seems to always have the better tiles, not because it plays the best move. Therefore, you have to use skill to be able to overcome this disadvantage. Despite its flaws, this game is well worth $1.

AI kind of weak? An extra hard computer setting might be nice. I haven't played this before and don't have any patricular strategy, but after seven games I haven't managed to lose once. Fine for local multiplayer though.

Great little logic game Loved the implementation. AI wasn't the most challenging but good enough to sharpen your game reflexes

I love it!!! :) Very good time waster. Need to be able to play with random people from around the world.

One of my favourite games But, oponents are pretty easy to win. Undo button could have purpose

Great game but needs online multiplayer. Needs online multiplayer!

Wrong calculation for computer game I got 3 full score, and 5 out of 6 better than computer, and i lost. Please fix it for a 5 star.

Great abstract strategy! One of Reiner Knizia's purest games. Great implementation. Some recent improvements are appreciated, but I still suspect tiles aren't really random. I'll raise the rating a star to make it five stars if this gets fixed this week as developer says.

Would be better if you could play live online games with real people. Its good to play to practice you game but the computer fails to move where a real person would definitely move. Played the tournament to the end but it just resets itself when you win it so not very gratifying. Love playing the board game with my friends,i hope i can win a few real games after all this practicing. Its worth the money and fun. A n online live match option is the next step for the phone version of Ingenious as the computer is not a great opponent. Have fun playing! .

Not bad The AI isn't that great, so it gets boring after a while. Had they added multiplayer with at least even one other online player this would easily be 5 stars all day long. Good for practice for real games with friends, but that's about it. Not bad for the price I guess, but nothing great like it easily could and should have been with an online multiplayer option

Repeating Pieces I swear it did not used to do this but I get the same 6 starting pieces more than 50% of the time and unfortunately it is ruining the game. I'm not going to be a jerk and only give it one star because other than this problem it is a 5 star game. Please fix this if you can because I love it and appreciate all the other improvements over the years!

Addictive A friend recommended this game, and now I'm addicted. I love the unique scoring mechanics. Like one of the other posters, I have not noticed any apparent cheating in the game, and some reviews also stated that the game is too easy while others stated it is too hard. I win some and lose some, just my experience, though the AI could use a bit more difficulty on the Hard level I guess. Also, the scores have always been accurate as I double check them at the end of the game to see who won. The comment about "adding the scores" is ignorant due to the fact that you don't "add" scores in this game, which is WHY I like the game. It's the lowest score that loses instead of the highest score that wins (great twist!). That got me at first, until I read the rules. I wasn't sure about downloading this at first because of some of the bad reviews and there's no free version, but I took a chance and am happy with the game. The graphics are pretty good. I just wish they would add online multiplayer. But for the price of a coke for hours of play offline, I'll live.

Elegant, Fun and Challenging This game is simple yet challenging. The reviews before that say the AI in the game cheats are just wrong. I didn't detect any extraordinarily lucky breaks coming the computer's way.

Not for nexus 7 Bought on my phone expecting it to work with my nexus 7, only to find that its incompatible for some reason. Please update this app, I love the board game and would like to be able to play on the go!

A good adaptation of a great board game Online multiplayer may be too much to implement, but lack of it is what keeps this from perfection. And if you're going to have hotseat play, why not allow four players? Still, a classic.

Groundhog Day I quite like the physical board game, and I was enjoying this, even with the rough edges, until... I realised that every game after a restart was the same (in terms of tiles provided). Fix your random number generator!

Pretty good, but could be better I think they fixed this, but you could see the AI working a maximization algorithm that made it somewhat easy to shut him down on his weakest color and then never try to recover that. The last game I couldn't make it happen. My only problem is that this game, as good as it is, would be amazing with the option to play against 2-3 opponents.

This is the app version of the boardgame designed by the legendary Reiner Knizia and published by Fantasy Flight Games. It's a great translation/implementation from the boardgame but I have beaten the A.I. several times at the highest level. After the winning the tournament, it resets. I would have preferred a prize, like unlocking it to play against other people online. There is no multiplayer option to play with other people online. That is my only gripe thus far. I hope that feature becomes available soon as I have never played the actual boardgame and not played it with a live person. For that reason, minus 1 star.

Don't bother cos you can't win Why does the computer get more points for the same tiles? Its rigged so you lose right from the start so impossible to win. Waste of time. Uninstalled.

Robskiy Really intriguing and fun game. Only irritating thing is that rotating the pieces can be fiddly.

Very entertaining I enjoy playing this game for hours. U have to think and move fast in order to win. Try it is very fun. Now is good but the system behind the app is cheating all the time. While u get the double colors once in a while the computer gets them 3 or 4 per game. And besides that it gets extraturns 3 or 4 times per game, u get only one.

I love the game. But playing the computer a million times is so boring. Is online play ever going to be an opinion?

Addicting and enjoyable, though it is too easy and I win every game now. There needs to be a more difficult level. Love the music too.

Fun game It's a fun game, but after mastering it, it gets a little boring. Just not enough diversity, but fun.

Not as good as iphone version The computer is so bad it is impossible to lose even in hard

Addictive! Played this with a friend on the train, had to have it!

Not as good as it should be. Ai is weak and seems only to be two player.

I love this game I like this game its a little challenging and the music is coo...l I know it sounds weird but the music is really cool.

Too much fun! My only wish would be for it to be alot harder

Great game in 'real' life. Great development into an app...works well on both phone and tablet. One of my favorites for a quick board game.

OK implementation of an excellent board game The game itself is very good, but the implementation is quite power hungry. And why just 2-player hotseat?

Keeps me coming back for more. Love the strategy

Love this game Played the board game for years, and this is very enjoyable. No bugs, no crashes, no issues.

Love this game! Works great! Love all the ways to play! Single player, two player and tournament! So I can play with or without another person!
