Description
Baker Street boffin Sherlock Holmes is said to be able to analyse 216 different ciphers. Inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s (1859-1930) cryptographic character, this family-friendly code-breaking game will delight and confound in equal measure. Deduce the correct order of four coloured pegs hidden in the hooded section of a wooden board. With only 10 guesses to get it right you must analyse your opponent’s feedback to break the code. The game is based on ‘Master Mind’, invented in 1970 by Mordecai Meirowitz (b.1930), an Israeli postmaster and telecommunications expert, but was itself based on the 19th century pencil-and-paper game, ‘Bulls and Cows’.
