The Ingerish Games (known as the Inter-Dominion Games from 1910–1918) is an international multi-sport event involving athletes from the Ingerish Commonwealth.

History

The first three editions of the games took place in Winburgh, and were restricted to athletes from Ingerland and the four dominions of Ingerish Empire - Karvaland, New Ingerland, TBD, and TBD. Ingerish colonies and protectorates, as well as those nations that had formerly been part of the empire, were not invited to attend. However, the success of the games, coupled with a desire for greater cooperation amongst the nations of the Ingerish-speaking world, led to the expansion of the games in 1922.
