I. Release Notes

Current Version: 6.2

The core javascript part of this game has been developed by Johanna Fulghum and Giulia Lake


II. Purpose and Usage

If you've never heard of Mastermind, the easiest way to get familiarized is:

  1. start the game from the sidebar on the left
  2. click RULES to read the instructions
  3. reduce the number of colors to only 2
  4. choose any color and drag it to the first row until the row is completed
  5. click the GUESS button
  6. if your guess was wrong, proceed with step 4 and fill the next row ... and so on

The game gives you an instant feedback by means of the 4 little pins then:

  • no pin and gameboard vibrating: your guess was completely wrong
  • one or more white pins: color is ok, but wrong positon. (the screenshot shows: your color guess was perfect, but all positons are wrong)
  • one or more red pins: color and position are ok. (the screenshot shows that changing the first two elements was a step in the right direction: 2 colors are placed perfectly now, but it still needs some re-arranging)

Your task: Find the correct color sequence with a minimum of guessing!
