Does anyone want to play a game of Mastermind?

In case you don’t know the rules to Mastermind:

Using the 8 colours below

:black_circle: :white_circle: :red_circle: :orange_circle: :yellow_circle: :green_circle: :large_blue_circle: :purple_circle:

You will have 12 attempts to guess what code I have hidden under these 5 pegs

:radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button:

In response to each guess I will give you:

:white_square_button: = a black square for every peg you guess the right colour in the right hole
:black_square_button: = a white square for every peg you guess the right colour but in the wrong hole

I guess multiple people can play but you’ll have to take it turns to guess and wait for my reply

Okay I have created a Mastermind

Let’s play Mastermind

:radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button: :radio_button:

Can you clarify whether the white and black pegs are hole-specific (like wordle), or non-hole-specific, like Mastermind?

Anyway, my first guess:

:black_circle: :white_circle: :red_circle: :orange_circle: :yellow_circle:

Are you sure that the answers to guesses 6 & 7 are correct?

One colour has been changed in the guess, but two pegs have been changed in the answer.

EDIT: my colourblindness means that I didn’t spot the difference between the orange and the yellow peg. Ignore me
