Description

Make the code on the table match your own secret code. This is done by manipulation of the coins on the table and in an opaque bag. Everything else you need, is a good memory.

Reviews & Comments

The idea of this game came to me in a dream. I realised I could take advantage of the two sides of the coins in a memory type of game.


The rules say:

For a more difficult game:

For a less difficult game:

One of those must be wrong, no?


The less difficult game says that you can make the code longer with less coins left in the bag. It's the change of the coins to the bag that makes the game a little unpredictable. If you have more coins on the table, you have more control. Roger Meertens
