Hi Dark,

In Master Mind and level 5 of Awesome Homer I usually do 1 1 2 2, then 3 3 4 4, 
then 5 5 6 6.  Of course some times the results change that, but that is how I 
usually start.  I liked your logic though and will have to try that a few times.

Hi Mich.

I'm afraid the combination is simply jim's mastermind game (you can play the game in it's own right by downloading it from jim's site).

the combination changes each time I believe, You just need to use logic to work it out by being told what is in the right place and what isn't.

so I started with 1 1 1 1, and was told one number was correct and in the right place.

I then tried 1 2 2 2 , and could be certain that one number would be correct sinse it had a 1, if there were anymore it'd be a 2.

As it happened I was told that 1 was right and in the right place, so I knew that first number was 1.

i then tried 1 3 3 3 and was told two were right and in right place, so I knew one of those last three numbers wa s a3.

I then tried 1 3 4 4 and was told one was right and right place (the one), and one right in wrong place, so I knew the second number wasn't 3, and also that the combination didn't contain fours.

I then tried 1 5 3 5 and was told I had two right in right place and two right in wrong place. sinse I knew the 1 was right and one of the fives was right, the three must go at the end, thus the combination turned out to be 1 5 5 3.

As I said, to practice this sort of logic, just get jim's mastermind game and play it a few times.

Hth.

Beware the grue!
