*** The best-selling board-game app over the past 10 years… and still counting! ***

Millions of players worldwide have either played Reiner Knizia's award winning game in the original board game format, or have played on one of the online sites in the 10 years since launch of the board game. But the iPhone version could be the best yet far! The high res screen of the iPhone perfectly suits the colours of the game, and the iPhone's super-intuitive controls make it so easy to place those tiles!

The already addictive nature of the Ingenious board game is greatly enhanced on the iPhone, giving the user a really exciting- and graphically stimulating-experience every time. Build lines of colour tiles, try and block your opponent, and remember that the winner isn't necessarily the player with the highest scores in only a few colours!
You must excel in all your colours.

The rules are really easy to learn and a comprehensive tutorial will introduce you to the game. Within minutes you'll be playing effortlessly, even as a first time player of the game.

Just choose your favourite artist or songs from the music iPod on your phone. And choose a different graphic background to suit your mood.

YOU'LL NEED STRATEGY to beat the AI opponents. But you have a choice of easy, medium or hard (as well as the option to play against the clock if you wish). You choose! And the app will record your best scores and best performances. There is room for up to 3 different player profiles.

PLAY ONLINE if you are feeling competitive. Compare your skills with leaderboards and challenging achievements via Game Center.

Or choose to play single player TOURNAMENTS and try to win multiple games in a row. You can also choose to play against the clock in some of the rounds.

PLAY the SOLITAIRE game: This is a seriously satisfying feature of the iPhone version! Instead of playing against opponents you use all your skills to create a really high score.

Customer Reviews

Excellent implementation of expensive game

You can spend $50 to buy the board game, or $2 to get this very good electronic version that includes multiplayer. Heck of a deal. Placing the pieces is a little tricky sometimes, but aside from that, it's perfect, and a lot of fun to play.

Love the app, but my iPhone doesn't...

This is a truly great app, and it works great on my iPad. However, on my iPhone, it allows me to play the game for one session, but the next time I try to play, the app asks me to rate it and crashes within a second. I have to uninstall the app and reinstall to play once again. Please fix the bug!

Great Game, But the App needs an update.

I'm a huge fan of this game and the app is amazing. But every time I open it I am told that the app needs an update and that my iPhone will not support it in future versions of iOS.
