This board game is a mobile and tablet version of one of the most famous classical board games. Mastermind is also known as Master Mind and the modern Mastermind board game version with pegs and pins was invented by an Israeli named Mordecai Meirowitz in 1970. The logics and Mastermind game rules are very similar to an earlier invented mind game called Bulls and Cows that was played with a pencil on paper.

*** Game Rules ***

Mastermind is a mind game that is played on a decoding board with a shield covering four colored pins, the goal is to guess the code and recreate the hidden row in this board game. Below the shield, there are eight horizontal rows where the player, code breaker is able to guess the color and placing of the covered pins. On the right side of each horizontal row there are holes for pegs where the software will provide feedback for the code breaker after every attempt made to guess the code:

black peg indicates right color pin in right place
white peg indicates right color pin in wrong place
no peg indicates wrong color and place

The code breaker only gets one peg for every covered color that they guess right. If there are two pins of the same color hidden behind the shield, and the player guess that there are three pins of that same color, the player can still only get two pegs indicating right color.
Once the feedback has been provided the code breaker has a new attempt to guess the color/placing and break the code, with the help of the feedback and logical thinking.

As the numbers of rows indicate you only have eight attempts to guess the code you will be awarded points when you guess the color right and extra bonus points when you crack the code. Extra points are also awarded if you break the code in an early stage of this logic game.

Expand on the Fun!

Great design and realistic board game version feel! Would love to see this game app get even better expanding on stats like keeping up with your best game, highest scores and a way to earn badges.... like a badge for shortest completed game, badge for highest score, badge for completion of 10 games in five or less tries on hard version (5 slots)... another feature could be a bonus like a reward for completing 500 games by adding another color choice (like you are getting so good you get another color added) with the option of turning off that function ... another badge could be called “mastermind badge” for completing genius levels like solving 6 slots (using 7 colors) or something... when you accomplish that badge your reward could be moving up to super genius level where another color is added ( for 8 colors ) plus you would get to Choose your Color! Keep up the great work fun game!!!

Still A Challenging Game Of Thought And Cunning

My granddaughter found this gratifying game for me, after many years of not being able to find it myself, as a board game in the actual toy store buildings, or online. After having given up, I was pleasantly surprised and so very glad that it’s still available. Suitable and fun for the young and young at heart and anyone who enjoys a thought provoking game.

Love this game!

Mastermind is one of my favorite games, and this version is nearly perfect! The interface is gorgeous and game play is super-elegant. I would love to see a future version that allows for 9 rows of play with four slots. With only 8 rows, of the only to colors are the last two colors you use in your gameplay method, it becomes a game of chance rather than a game of skill. (If anyone reading this uses a gameplay method that eliminates this issue, I’d love to her about it!)
