I cruised around the forums and saw some mention about blue and red boxes, which makes sense, but at my FLGS, I saw a bigger box (similar in dimension to, say, Rex) that said 1-4 players, and a smaller, thinner, lighter box that said 2-4 players. The copy on the back of both boxes was the same and the smaller version was about half the price. It didn't say anything about travel edition or anything - can anyone clarify this difference for me? Is the thin one all crap components or something?

Ah, thanks. From descriptions here, I understood them to be the same box size, so I figured maybe I was looking at something else. That explains the pricing.

Thanks!!

I always knew there was a Mass Market Edition for Ingenious but up until this forum post I never realized it was minimum 2 players where the original is 1-4. I assumed the components were just cheaper

I guess there's solo cards that come in the big game that aren't included in the mass market edition? It's been a while since I read up on this game, but seeing the two versions at the store piqued my interest again.

I don't think there are any special components needed for the solitaire version. The rules are included here http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Ingenious/inge...
