Ingenious is one of many games designed by Reiner Knizia. If you’ve never played Ingenious, or cannot find someone to play with you right now, please try out my implementation. However, I encourage you to purchase your own copy to play with family and friends. Playing against ‘bots’ are okay in a pinch but the real fun comes in playing the game face to face.

To start playing, click the start button above and follow the directions. I also encourage you to leave comments on the stories below to let me know what you think of the game, problems you’re having, constructive criticism, or just chit chat.

Rules are available here.

  1. I press the ‘s’ or ‘l’ key’s and it does not let me swap tiles. And yes I know that you can only do that when you don’t have any tiles of your lowest scoring tile in your hand. I tried it numerous times and it still doesn’t work.

    1. I checked out the code tonight and ran through some scenarios when it’s valid to swap tiles and it worked fine for me. Are you sure you’ve got all of the rules straight about when it’s valid to swap tiles?

      Maybe you could link to a screenshot right before you attempt it or describe the state of your scoreboard and tiles when you attempt it?
