A Gnome's Ponderings

I'm a gamer. I love me some games and I like to ramble about games and gaming. So, more than anything else, this blog is a place for me to keep track of my ramblings. If anyone finds this helpful or even (good heavens) insightful, so much the better.

Why Ingenious found a place on our ipad

One of the first games that my fiancée and I bought for the magical ipad was Reiner Knizia’s Ingenious. And out the small number of board games that we have bought thus far, Ingenious is probably the one that benefits the least from being played on the tablet. With that being said, we both knew that it would be something that we wanted on the ipad.

On the one hand, we already own the travel version of the game, which takes up about the same amount of space as the ipad. We’ve played the game enough that we don’t need a computer to handle the scoring for us. And the ipad makes it difficult to hide your hand from your opponent, to the point where we just don’t even bother. (That last one is by far the biggest drawback)

However, Ingenious is also a game we both like and it is one of our fundamental go-to games. Before we started dating, we spent a lot of time hanging out at coffee shops, playing games and Ingenious (along with Zendo and Six) was one of the games we played the most. (Yeah, we’re both big abstract fans) Not only is Ingenious a game that we both enjoy, it has a lot of emotional value to us.

There are a lot of reasons to play games and we both have a lot of reasons to play this game. I am trying to be careful about how we build our electronic game library and not let it get too cluttered up but I knew we had to have a place for Ingenious.
