Not really for more than 2 players
on 7 February 2009
Regardless of the assurances on the box, mastermind is still really only a game for two players - It now has a snazzy 'turntable' to allow more players to work out the combination (held out of sight in a separate key piece). The whole point is to get to the combination of colours chosen by player 1 - the more people there are guessing, the more likely the combination will be guessed quickly. So all in all, more satisfying when there are only two players.
As an aside, the combination 'key' - a small plastic drum with rotating discs to display the colours - I found quite tricky to read in poor light - the pink and the orange look almost identical to someone with myopia in anything less than full daylight.
