Mastermind giveaway

Do you remember the game Mastermind? You might not remember the name of the game, but you probably remember the codemaker/codebreaker strategy. This is a great game for two people. I love playing this with my daughters, we have nice conversation while playing.




Mastermind Board Game from Pressman Toys

· In order to win, players must use strategy and problem solving skills to outsmart their opponent. One player is the codemaker and sets a code of colored pegs. The other player is the codebreaker and attempts to break the code with help from clues given by the codemaker.

· Players take turns being codemaker and codebreaker and whoever breaks the code in the least amount of moves wins!

· Mastermind Attache Edition is also available. The same classic board game now comes in a compact zippered case perfect for travel.

· For 2 Players. Ages 8 to adult. MSRP $14

We love board games and would love to add more to our collection. I played a game like this a long time ago--so fun!

I'm not trying to be a kiss-up, but Mastermind was one of my favorite boardgames!

I loved a marble game called Stay Alive. I wish I could find it. Mastermind looks hard. But I want it.

Monopoly. Also The Barbie Game. My friend had Mastermind and I loved to play it. But we were too poor to have it at our house. Sob.

Looks like I missed the separate blogs and put all my answers down on the last one like a doofus.

I really liked Life growing up, I still feel like playing but do not currently own one of the original or any of the billion themed ones.

I have many a found memory of playing Monopoly on New Years Day at my grandmother's home.

I was actually looking for Mastermind a few years ago. I'm glad to see it's still being made.

I totally forgot about this game. I couldn't figure out how to win it as a kid, but then as a teen we got an electronic version and I rocked it. It would be fun to play this with my kids.

My fav... monopoly, sorry... and we had a bunch of discovery kids board games we played all the time.

It's a race. I hope I win.

I played this game when I was younger and didn't know where to find it. I really liked Memory as a kid.

I loved playing Life when I was younger. The cars, the little stick people, the spinner. Classic. :>)

I loved Connect 4 as a kid. I always thought I was the best and could always beat my parents. Until I had 5 children of my own did I realize the moms always let the kids win!!!

Candyland was my favorite childhood game.
