    Can you please elaborate on this - I dropped down at the coordinates and couldn't find the puzzle - spoiler indeed lol!

    Is there a web page or program which can assist to solve the puzzle in 5 or less moves? I can solve it regularly but not fast enough for the extra achievement. I could write something myself but don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't need to.

    I'm certain that the puzzle's started lying in the past week or so. I've found that switching two colours round sometimes changes the number of lights that light up, and I'm finding it way harder than before to win. I never used a proper writing-possibility method, just went with what felt right - last week I could do it ~80% of the time, now it's a lot harder. I'm sure something weird is going on...

    Yes, sometimes the solution will change mid "game".

    I had been systematic (and lucky) so i knew the order for the first 3 was G Y O and i knew i had 1x W and that it was not 4th and a P or B in no 4 slot (i had 4/5 colors and 3/5 correct place with GYOWR after systematicly getting there) when i moved the W to 5th and but in purple in 4th it changed from 4/5 colors with 3 correct spot and 1 wrong spot into 2/5 colors and both in wrong spot, a change that is not possible unless the solution changed.

    Trying to get this puzzle in 5 moves or less. so far my record is 6. and trying to work it out in that many moves is infuriating. i have now resorted to playing it lottery style. i pick my own combo and stick with it. will probably take me a million tries

    With the solution being randomized every time, there's a significant element of luck with getting it solved in under 5 tries. I found solving the puzzle seemed to become easier the more times in a row I tried it - getting in the mindset and all I guess - but that had no bearing whatsoever on getting it done in 5 or under. Just keep at it, you'll get it eventually.

    Default How I cheated

    This website helped me get it in 5 turns:

    http://www.dcode.fr/mastermind-solver

    I used the ABCDEFG syntax,

    Thus:
    ABCDE 20
    CDEFE 00
    BABAE 22

    Draumheim puzzle...

    sometimes the puzzle solution changes.. my guess is, this is because of lag, which can give the wrong colors for the solution tested or just a server refresh/hiccup, that changes the solution needed..


    as for the puzzle..
    there are many ways to logically get the solution.

    there are 7 colors
    white
    green
    yellow
    orange
    red
    purple
    blue

    I use the start blank one color..
    this gives me info if white is used or not

    next I change one or 2 circles into green
    it gives info if green is used, if multiple circles are green
    it also gives info if (when white is used) on the location of the white circles.. on which spot they are or are not..
    same goes for green.. if green is used and if so, on what spots yes or not

    I "test' till I have the whites and greens used in the right spot.. which leaves less circles to test for color and color at spot.

    next I test the yellow.. don't skip colors, just work in the order the colors show when turning the circles.. that way, you get less confused.

    For those on Android I recommend https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...stermindsolver

    It lets you define the colours of the pegs (white, orange, yellow, red, purple, blue and green are used in our puzzle here) and that there's 5 pegs then just have to hit solve and enter the matches (right colour and wrong column, right colour and right column) and you'll spend less time translating colours into numbers and therefore less likely to have the solution change whilst you're working.
