Created by popular game designer Reiner Knizia, Ingenious Challenges provides three unique games for 2-4 players 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 get points for both matches!
Check out the rules for Ingenious Challenges, and look for it on store shelves soon!
