Yes, Reiner Knizia does revisit some of his ideas time after time. The question is, is that a problem if he can add something new to the idea again and again?

This time I look at the "highest lowest wins" idea most known from Tigris & Euphrates and Ingenious: in the games below, you have a few different scores in the end (mostly represented in different colors) and your final score is the lowest number of these (also, in case of a tie, the tie-breaker score is the second lowest number and so on).
