How to play: One person sets up the code (code master) using colored pegs. The other person (code breaker) needs to break the code in less than 10 tries to win. The code master lets the code breaker know if she/he has the correct colored pegs in the correct order each round. The code breaker has 10 chances to break the code. If the code breaker figures it out he/she gets a point, if not the code master gets the point. Then players switch sides and scores can be kept on the board for most wins.
This board is constructed of plastic as well as the pegs.
States it is for ages 8 and up. This is pretty accurate as I think it may be a little difficult for younger kids to have this much strategy. I don't think there is an age where someone outgrows the game. Keep in mind, this game has a ton of small pieces that can be lost or put in the mouth. This is something to keep in mind if purchasing for a gift.
The down side to this particular version is that some of the playing pieces are very small for adult hands to manipulate. Also, the compartment in the case that the pieces are kept in does not quite have enough room for everything to fit into snugly.
One downside to this particular board. You have to be careful of the small pieces falling out of the holder on the side. We put our small pieces in a plastic baggy and then put it in the holder.
This is the tried and true Mastermind, but this version isn't the best. The pegs are round, making them hard to grab for larger fingers, and the shield is too short, making it difficult to place the pegs in where you want. My kid sister, who was 7 at the time, even had a hard time.
Also, while the traditional Mastermind had four pegs, we found that we flew through games too quickly. I ended up replacing this with Ultimate Mastermind, and I heartily recommend that one over the standard release.
The game itself is one of my favorites and a true classic, if you never had thus game its worth buying especially if you think you are smart and can figure things out ( buy when they go on sale about $10 range)
