We’re sure most of us here will definitely know what the Mastermind is – it’s one of the most popular classic board games back in the 70’s and the 80’s.
If this is the very first time you’ve heard of the game, here’s how it is played (text adopted from the AFOL Norders’ description of his build):
The idea is that one player would set a four-colour code, hidden behind the panel. The other player would then have up to 10 guesses to break the code. On each try the code setter would let the code breaker know how many colours they got right. Each correct colour in the wrong place gets a white peg, and each correct colour in the right place gets a black peg. The code breaker then uses this information to formulate their next move.
At the end of the game, you swap roles and go again. Simple and addictive!
This LEGO-made version of Mastermind by AFOL Norders is made from 800-1,000 pieces (depending on how many colored pegs you’d like to make) and just like the original version, the panel door can be tipped backward to reveal the code at the end of the game.
Personally, we felt this is an interesting build and we’d love to see this one eventually produced as an official LEGO set as we feel that this game definitely offers a day of fun for the whole family – not just in terms of the process of building, but also fun with the game after that!
