Hi everybody,

Would any of you be interrested in a little game of mastermind?

We will be playing with a code of four pips. The pips may be any of the following colors:

B = BLUE
R = RED
G = GREEN
P = PURPLE
O = ORANGE
T = TEAL

But one color might occur more the one time in de code.

When you post a posible answer I'll tell you how many of the pips are correct and in place and how many pips are correct but not in place. Each Crimson (C) pip I give mean that one of the pips selected by you is correct and in the right place. and each Sienna (S) pip means that one of the pips selected by you is correct but not in the right place.

I'll not tell you which of your pip(s) I mean by my pips.

Now let's get playing...

B R A G

and I was NOT making fun of you! Arkron went four A's....I went 4 blues ...are there no blues in your puzzle?

I know there is a one A there somewhere?

I am totally confused by these rules
and colors. What color is A? I thought B was blue...I was trying to determine if there were any blues in the puzzle answer.

Now I am looking for the placement of the color A...I do not understand...and make sure there are NO blues in the puzzle.

Blue Red Whatever A is and Green

are any of those there in your puzzle?

I never make fun of people...you know me a hellova lot better than that.

Arkron, would you please explain so this dense one can understand the rules? I don't think Moggraider was making fun...he probably did not understand either!

Haven't you played mastermind before?

Okay, for the colors see top post. Create a row with four of those colors, thus if you want your code to be RED RED BLUE BLUE you post R R B B. So not all letters are a color. And yes there is precisely 1 blue (B) pip in the code. That can read that from the answer I posted B B B B --- C. This tell you that one of the pips is that color, but which one of the four?!? Now that is for you to find out.

If you get a crimson (C) back it means that one of the colors you selected is correct AND on the correct spot

If you get a Sienna (S) back it means that one of the colors you selected is correct BUT not in the right place.

Here is an example game:

Try 1: B R G O --- C S (1 color correct and on the right spot, and 1 color right but not on the right spot)
Try 2: R P T O --- C C C (3 colors correct and on the right spot)
Try 3: R P P O --- C C (2 colors correct and on the right spot)
Try 4: R T T O --- C C C C (You broke the code)

---------------

For the second try I changed the A into a BLUE (B), since A isn't a valid color/pip.

B B B B --- C

B R B G --- C S

Folks,

I'm sorry but I'm an error on the second try instead of giving back C S I gave back S S. Sorry for that.
