In a game of Ingenious players use double hex tiles with various colored symbols.  Tiles are played on the board to form lines of like symbols. Scores are calculated by adding all symbols that match the played tile in all directions.  Next the player marks the score on their player board by colored symbol. This is the Ingenious part of the game; all players must try to score points with all 6 symbols. Players continue adding hexes to the playing surface until there are no possible plays left.  This marks the end of the game.  Players then look at their score by color.  The color that is the lowest on their individual score board will be their game score.  The player with the highest low score is the winner. The key to winning is to try and get all of the colors on your board as high as possible.
