Group Description

Games featuring gameplay similar to that of the code-breaking board game Mastermind.

Mastermind was invented by Mordechai Meirovich and first displayed at the Nurenburg Toy Fair in 1971. Rights were bought by Invicta and it became the most popular packaged game around the Christmas season of 1975. Many computer adaptations were to follow.

The game is preceded by similar code breaking games such as Bulls and Cows, also known as Bulls and Cleots, these games can be included in this group.

Once colours are entered the player clicks on the grey bar on the right to see how they have done. This did not work on my machines.
