Advantages: You use skill
Disadvantages: Hard for younger kids
Another one of the classic's and another game that will still be around for many years to come.
Having the same name as a now retired TV programme, it bares no similarity.
No questions and no big black chair.
It is a thinking game and ideal for adults and children alike. My 8 year old likes to play this with me and is still learning. He likes to be the one that sets out the code.
The game comes in standard, Super and Deluxe with extra holes for those that have mastered the standard version.
Basically, someone is the code maker and the other person is the code breaker. They line up a set of coloured pegs behind a little screen and you have to find the correct code.
The code maker helps you along by placing white pegs if you have entered a correct colour but in the wrong hole and a black peg if you have entered the correct colour in the correct hole.
But which is which?
That is what the code breaker must find out by using trial and error and looking back at his past lines of coding.
Fairly priced for what you get and an excellent stocking filler.
