A New Old Game - Mastermind

Just a quick post to upload a new version of my Mastermind game.

A bit of background - I met with the local Excel elite last weekend - very serious thinkers, drinkers and gamers :-) - and was sitting next to a friend who specialises in the userform type.

Anyway, I was sitting on the hotel bed later thinking I'd like to try this technique and as I didn't have any inspiration for a new game, I thought I'd give this a shot first.

Here's the download link.

I managed to catch the flu too so an early night for me. Nighty night.

Hi Ross,

How's things? This year's flu is not as bad as last year, fingers crossed.

There's a quite large Excel VBA game community here in Japan. The 3 basic classifications (from memory) are cell type, autoshapes type and userform type. Most listed seem to be the cell type, ones I've made so far are this type too.

Here's a link to the friend I mentioned, Koichi Tani, "the man with the cool games". He certainly has some cool games, knows how to make beer disappear real fast too :-)

"serious drinking, huh"?!

i can only hope that my "limitless autofilter" didn't get you into trouble...

no wonder, you went into silence since last week...

take care,

Me, I don't really drink that much...I've just been very busy at work etc, easy to catch a cold at times like this :-)
