I recently bought this game as a gift to my husband as he is into the da vinci code theory. After playing a few times it can be quite addictive even my six year old daughter loves to play it with us. The rules are easy to follow and the game itself is quite good. With each game only taking about ten to fifteen minuites it does not get boring like some games which can drag on for hours. Overall I would recommend it to anyone if you are into logic and thinking games. The only downside is the value for money as I think the price is a bit steep for twenty six plastic number tiles.

It is quite easy to play. There are black and white tiles each numbered 0 to 11 ie 0-11 white and 0-11 black. All the tiles are placed face down on the table and each player (2-4) draws 4 tiles at random. They place them in numerical order from left to right facing away from opposing players. Black is always left of white in the case of the same number. Then one player starts by drawing a new tile from the pile and guessing one of their opponents tiles. If they get it right their opponent display the tile in sequence.If they get it wrong then the player displays the tile they have just drawn in sequence. Play continues until only one player has tiles remaining. This game could probably be played using a pack of cards and using 2 suits.

This game is essentially a guessing game which evolves into a process of logical deduction. When you start, you don't know what's in play, and you have to guess wildly. But as more tiles are revealed, it becomes a game where Colonel Mustard has already been "outed", and you have seen the knife, so it might be the rope. Not literally, but as more number tiles are revealed, you have fewer left concealed. And the rules about placing tiles in rising numerical order make it easier to work out what must be left, like the cards in the Cluedo envelope. The Mastermind connection is more tenous, but I make it because of the concern with position.

So it is a game which gets easier as you go, but has little skill involved when you start.

The components are simple, the rules are simpler, and the appeal is not certain - I played it once and then felt happy to move on to another game.

I agree with another reviewer who felt that cards could have been used - at much lower cost to the buyer - but the bottom line is that if you are looking for a logical challenge, this game becomes a tricky challenge, but only after a lot of wild guesswork at the start.

And if you are looking for some kind of link between the title of the game and a certain well-known novel or motion picture, there isn't any!

We really enjoyed this game when a friend brought it around. My children begged me to get it. I have children ranging from 8-12, parents and grandparents and they all like it (including my dyslexic child). With the younger ones we started playing in pairs as a team to give them the confidence to learn the stategies and understand the game. There are two complete sets of numbers 0-12 in both black and white tiles.Players have to select tiles at random and arrange them in numerical order in front of them , but hidden from other players. The game begins with luck in that you have to try and guess what number tiles the other players have without revealing any of yours to them. This happens if you make a mistake because you by have to reveal by laying down , the tile you picked up from the central pool at the start of your turn. This gets easier to work out by deduction as the game progresses and more tiles are revealed (they have to be laid out in numerical order). The tiles are robust and the game should last well, (providing no pieces get lost!!)

I use this in school to support my students with resilience and thinking skills. It's a simple game but tricky to master, and demands real concentration. Absolutely brilliant.
