Mastermind game giveaway

First of all... Math Teachers at Play 34 is online... go check out the posts!

Then... I'm doing a giveaway again... one of you, my readers, can be a lucky one to win a free Mastermind board game!

Update: The winner is now chosen, the third commenter below, named Ă„iti. This went quick!!!!!! Comments are therefore closed.

The lady who contacted me about it said that many of today's adults actually KNOW the game from their childhood, but don't know it's still available.

I haven't played it as a child, but a few years ago I found Mastermind online (on several math games websites), and I found I like it!

This is how Mastermind works:
You need to guess the "secret code" of colored pegs: both the color and the order they are in. You make a guess, and your opponent (or computer) tells you some clues. A black clue means you got one peg the right color AND in the right position, whereas a white clue means you got a peg with right color in the wrong position.

It's basically a logic game... you need to think logically about your guesses and the given clues.

Go play it online here (against the computer) at National Library of Virtual Manipulatives. This version is nice, as it allows you to limit the number of colors, which is helpful for new players or small children.

How to take part?
Simply leave a comment to this blogpost. Follow my blog and once you see I've chosen the winner, the winner needs to contact me with their contact and shipping info. This giveaway runs until I have 10 comments OR January 31, whichever happens first.

I ejoyed this game as a child...but remember it as a "hard" game...especially when there was more than one of the same color. There's a version of it on Webkinz as well. Great logic (I'm still challenged by it!)
