Object of the Game
The computer picks a secret code consisting of 4 pegs, each one being one of any of six colours.
The object of the game is to guess the exact positions of the colours in the code in as few guesses as possible. After each guess, the computer gives you a score of exact and partial matches.
The code's colours can be:
A colour can be used any number of times in the code.
All four pegs of the secret code will contain a colour - no blanks/empties are allowed.
Each guess must consist of 4 peg colours - no blanks.
For each of the pegs in your guess that is the correct colour in the CORRECT position, the computer will give you an 'EXACT' point. If you score 4 'EXACT's on a guess, you have guessed the code.
For each of the pegs in your guess that is a correct colour in an INCORRECT position, the computer will give you an 'OTHER' point. Together, the EXACT and OTHER points will add up to no more than 4.
If none of the pegs in your guess is of a correct colour, you will receive a score of 0 EXACT, and 0 OTHER, which will be displayed as SORRY. Actually, its a big bonus to receive this - it narrows the field down quite a bit.
