Are You Up For The Challenge?
Can You Crack The Code In 10 Moves Or Less? Can You Create A Code Than Can't Be Cracked?
It’s easy to learn and fast to play, and with more than 2,000 possible codes it’s different every time. The Codemaker sets a secret code, then the Codebreaker tries to match the code using logic, deduction, and maybe even a little bit of luck.
After each move, the Codemaker gives clues to the Codebreaker. Codemakers can make their codes even more devious by using multiple pegs of the same color or by leaving one or more peg holes empty. With so many possible code combinations, every game is guaranteed to be a brainteaser.
The Codemaker creates a secret code with any four of the pegs (there are six colors).
The Codebreaker places pegs in a pattern, trying to match the Codemaker's pattern to break the code.
The Codemaker signals if the Codebreaker has pegs of the right color and if they're in the right position.

I would not recommend that you purchase this version of it. The original edition from the 70's is much better designed, and more fun to play. You can get it on EBay for about the same price. The new version has fatal flaws that interfere with enjoyment of the game:
- The peg compartment it too small to contain all the pegs. This means that you have to keep the original cardboard box around to hold the extra pegs.
- After the game, you'll often have trouble closing the peg compartment, because pegs have slipped between the lid and board. You have to empty out all the pegs to get the stray peg out.
- Color pegs fit loosely. A small bump to the board will dislodge the pegs.
- The colors are off. I find it much harder to think about Pink, Teal, and Orange, than the original game colors. And red and white pegs for scoring do not have the mental clarity of original black & white.
- Everything about the game feels cheap, they probably shaved their production costs from $3 to $2.25 by using only the cheapest materials available.
Do yourself a favor, and get the original version off Ebay, or a garage sale.
Many toys are built much flimsier than they used to be. I've love playing my vintage editions of Risk & Monopoly. There is just something about holding a nicely designed piece in your hand.
also, i recently saw a version made out of wood; so perhaps a few adjustments to the design could increase the durability factor (though my little plastic version has lasted 15+ years! & i simply put the pegs in zipper bags to keep them from getting lost)
I worked at a toy store for a while. Everyone who asked me to suggest an eduactional game was taken directly to this classic.
My only gripe with this new version is the peg compartment. It is completely useless, and I am inclined (as other reviewers) to suggest keeping the pegs in one or two ziplock bags. The compartment is too small to close with all the pegs inside. And the seperator doesn't hold up to its purpose, the small and large pegs inevidably get mixed up. But, it is nice to have all the pegs available when playing. Just don't count on the compartment to keep the pegs from ending up all over the inside of the box everytime you dig the game out of the closet.
I would recommend this game for people who have grown out of simpler games such as Connect Four.
This is a great game for grandparents to play with younger people, because the older person doesn't have to "dumb down" their technique to play a kids game. It exercises your brain without having any overt educational tone. Everyone can benefit from some good Mastermind strategy practice!

I love, love this game! But the peg holder on the side of the game board is not functional. It doesn't stay closed and isn't large enough to fit all the pegs! Read morePublished 4 days ago by Van
Great game, but cheaply made. There are a thousand little pegs that don't all fit in the compartment so it's practically useless.Published 8 days ago by Ashley MacNeel
