Yesterday, Renz and I played the board game Mastermind. For the young ones out there, Mastermind is a board game that came out and became highly popular in the 70's. As a child, I remember getting excited playing this game then simply because the rules were few and the objective was simple. It's not like chess where each chess piece had its own "rule". No wonder I never got good in chess.
The old Mastermind game I remember was a small case that was made of hard plastic that was brown colored. I think it looked like the one in the picture below from gamesmuseum.com:
I vaguely recall two sizes of this game: the regular pocket-sized model and the jumbo one (well it looked jumbo to me at that time!)
Anyway, a few months ago we went out to buy the game. I guess after describing the game and how much I enjoyed it, the kids wanted it too. Frankly I didn't think we'd still find it. After going through Southmall's Toy Kingdom and Festival Mall's toy shops, we chanced upon it in MindWorks at Festi for Php400. Here's the box of the Mastermind we bought.
