The aim of the game is to guess code of colours, hidden under X signs . The hidden code of colours is randomly selected by a computer.
You should fill in the grey cells with colours by pressing coloured round buttons with the mouse. Press "estimate" button to receive an estimating answer. Computer will estimate how many hits of colours you have and if they are in good or bad position :
= number of hits in good , correct position
= number of hits in wrong , uncorrect position
Options of the game may be changed. Before pushing “NEW game” button, you may change the length of the code and quantity of allowed colours, and whether you will be testing the code using or not using empty, grey colour, filling in a part or the whole code with colours.
Instead of the mouse, you can use keyboard to fill in cells with colours. During inserting numerals 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 or 0 into cells, computer will automatically change inserted numerals into colours. To receive an estimating answer of the tested code, you need to insert dot or comma sign into any cell of the tested code. Combination of keys (Ctrl n) can substitute pressing "NEW game” button. By analysing computer's sequential answer and drawing logical conclusions, the player has a good chance of uncovering the colour code within a number of tests limited by a computer.
Excellent Mind game was written in program MS Excel 5/95 using International Macro MS Excel 4.0 language, but the file of the game can be saved in a higher version of MS Excel and work under any file name.
