2.0 out of 5 stars Take a classic game, and redesign it really badly..., 28 Dec. 2011
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mastermind (Toy)
It's a bit pointless playing it with more than 2 players. It's like saying draughts or chess can be a 4 (or any!!) player game, by taking it in turns to play for each side.

And the build quality is, quite simply, tragic. The thing you make the secret code in is designed so you need an anglepoise lamp to be able to make out the colours and as soon as you handle it the colours change. The slidy things to score each move are a bit wobbly and rubbishy, and the pegs don't sit in the holes nicely at all, it's like every one is different, so some sit in OK, others look as if they're about to wobble out of position.

If it was a prototype made by a teenager for a school project I would be impressed, but it's manufactured and sold at a high price by the top games manufacturer in the world, so it screams "rip-off, can't be bothered, what an utter mug you are!!" to me.
