Can you crack the code of this sequencing game?
Logic, deduction, critical thinking, and more are all critically important to cracking the sequential code of Mastermind, and players need to apply them all to guess the combination in the shortest number of steps. With more than 2,000 possible codes, it’ll be different every time, making for an exciting guessing game each time the board comes out.
How to Play
Players take turns being the Codemaker and the Codebreaker. The Codebreaker needs to guess the secret code in as few attempts as possible.
The Codemaker sets a secret code using different colored pegs hidden behind a peg shield so the Codebreaker can’t see. The Codebreaker then tries to match the code by replicating what they think the code may be using pegs. After each move, the Codemaker gives clues to the Codebreaker about the accuracy of their code sequence using key pegs.
Codebreakers get 20 attempts to guess the code. If they guess it, they get 5 points; if it’s not guessed in 20 tries, the Codemaker gets 1 point. Then, players switch roles and start all over!
