Project: Guess What

About the name

It is just another Mastermind game. Many years ago when I was in college, one of my roommate brought us the plastic version of Mastermind game. I liked the game but forgot the name of it. Lately I thought it might be fun to write a little program to play it. I called it “Guess What” since it is all about guessing the colors. Once I found out it is called Mastermind, Google showed me hundreds of hits. Many of them are Java applet versions that can be played in web browsers. Instead of rename it back to maybe “Yet another*n Mastermind” (Since there is already a YAMM), I decided to keep the name. Not sure how easy it will be to find that through Google. Anyway, that is the story about the name.

About the game

Google search Mastermind and you will find many pages explaining the rule and the tricks of solving it. I might put some something here as well when I got time.

First of all, the credits should go to Mordecai Meirowitz, the smart guy who invented the game.
