I Have To Remove Ingenious

Sadly, after years of hosting my implementation of Ingenious online, and having been granted the rights from Sophisticated Games to host the version, I’ve been contacted by the personal assistant to Reiner Knizia (Karen Easteal) informing me that I must take down the game or pay a yearly licensing fee.

As I don’t make any money from the implementation, it makes no monetary sense for me to keep hosting the game and sadly I had to remove it.

If you’d like to contact Karen concerning the implementation, including how this implementation may have encouraged you to purchase your own copy, it may help them see how this site provides free advertising for those who might be unfamiliar with the game.

  1. That’s very short-sighted of them. I have purchased both the board game AND the app because of being able to play your implementation online!

    I have recommended many others to check out your implementation here too, and they have done the same–purchased the game in an official form, physical, virtual or both.

    Your online version is a great introduction and it’s too bad they can’t see that.
