CHOKING HAZARD - small parts, Not for children under 3 years.
- It’s easy to learn and fast to play, 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.
Classic Code Cracking Game (the following is the example of 2 player game, 3-5 player game details shown in the user manual)
As codemaker, your goal is to create the perfect code that no one can break.
As codebreaker, you must try to break the code in the fewest number of guesses possible.
2 Player Game
To win the most rounds
- the codebreaker wins a round if they break the code within 12 guess.
- the codemaker wins a round if the codebreaker fails to break the code.
1. Decide who will be teh first codemaker. The codemaker sits behind the rotating end of Decryption Unit with the codebreaker directly opposite.
2. Agree on an even number of rounds to play.
3. At the start of each round the codemaker takes the code-setting unit and dials in a color combination. Each of the colors must be different. Make sure the codebreaker cannot see your secret code.
4. The codebreaker can now begin guessing the code.
To make a guess:
Insert 4 pegs into the holes, starting with the row furthest away from the codemaker, moving towards the codemaker with each new guess.
If the guess is incorrect:
The codemaker scores the guess.
The codebreaker continues guessing until the code is broken or they have used up all 12 guess. The pegs and scores are left in place throughout the round.
If the guess is correct:
The codemaker reveals the code and the round is over.
Note: when revealing the code, make sure you don’t turn the code-setting unit around so that the code sequence appears back to front.
5. At the end of the round make a record of who won, the swap roles.
6. The game ends when the agreed number of even rounds has been played. The player that wins the most rounds in the winner.
