Word Mastermind

Word MastermindWord Mastermind consists of 2 types of people.
1. The Mastermind: Is the person who has a secret word for everyone else to guess and
2. The Players: Everyone trying to guess the secret word

The Mastermind:
1. Which ever player guessed the secret word for the last round becomes The Mastermind for the next round.
2. The Mastermind must share how many letters his/her secret word is.
3. Word lengths can range from 3 to 15 letters long. The fewer the letters the easier it is to guess. The more letters there are the harder it is to solve.
4. It is recommended that the secret word be placed in a secret text with a spoiler button so it can be referred to again in case of memory loss or alternative a red may be asked to assist if The Mastermind goes MIA. (Reminder to the players Reds are volunteers of RPGX and are not required to assist be sure to be extremely kind to them if asking for their help. Then if even after that they say no... Roll a die to determine who will become The Mastermind and abandon the last game. It's not that serious.)
5. After providing the length of the secret word The Players will guess words of that exact length. The Mastermind will advise the players of the words provided how many letters are right and in the right spot and how many letters are right but are not in the right spot. These are commonly referred to as "Right Right" and "Right Wrong". To clarify The Mastermind does not have to clarify which individual letters are the right letters, only how many not which ones.
6. When working with double letters The Mastermind shall remember that if the secret word only has a particular letter once but the guessed word has it twice The Mastermind shall only count one letter right. Alternatively if the secret word has a particular letter twice but the guessed word only has it once The Mastermind shall once again only count one letter right.
7. While not required The Mastermind can count the total number of Wrong Letters. Because Wrong Letters plus Right Right plus Right Wrong shall always equal the number of letters of the word. Wrong Letters can be counted by determining how many letters must be changed to reach the secret word.

If one becomes the Mastermind and for some reason can not see their secret word through till it's solved myself or our resident Red, BananaBadger, would be willing to take over as Mastermind and see your word through till its solved. Just secret text one of us and let us know.


Mastermind ToolsGiving inaccurate Right Rights and/or Right Wrongs can greatly hinder The Players' ability to guess the secret word. As such to guarantee 100% accuracy if you are The Mastermind GodRosen and JaDeX have created and shared their Mastermind Tools. Contact either of them with questions about how to obtain your own copy of it if you can't figure out the links below. (Be advised JaDeX's Google Sheet is a much more efficient design then GodRosen's Excel sheet. But you go ahead and use whatever you like)

Example of GameplayOn a 3 letter game:
Secret Word: Cat
Guessed Word: Ate
The Mastermind's Response: 2 Right Wrong

Explanation: The Guessed Word and the Secret Word both share the letters "A" and "T" but the "A" in "Ate" is in the first position while it is in the 2nd position in the Secret Word therefore this letter is Right but it is in the Wrong position. It is Right Wrong. Additionally the "T" in "Ate" is in the Second Position but it is in the Third Position in the Secret Word. This letter is also Right Wrong.

2nd Guessed Word: Car
The Mastermind's Response: 2 Right Right

Explanation: The Secret Word is still "Cat" and because the first letter of the Guessed Word is "C" same as the first letter of the Secret Word this letter is Right and in the Right spot. It is Right Right. Additionally the second letter just like in the Secret Word is an "A" so this letter is also Right Right. The secret word will probably be guessed next round.

On a 6 letter game (double letter example):
Secret Word: Letter
Guessed Word: Attend
The Mastermind's Response: 1 Right Right 2 Right Wrong

Explanation: The 3rd letter of the Guessed Word is "T" just like in the Secret Word. This letter is Right Right. The 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th positions of the Guessed Word do not match it's corresponding position in the Secret Word. There is only 1 Right Right. The Guessed Word has a second "T" just like the Secret Word but it is not in the right position so this letter is Right Wrong. Additionally the Guessed Word has an "E" but only one. Even though the Secret Word has 2 "E" we shall only count it once since only one was in the Guessed Word. Though as established before this letter is in the wrong spot. It is Right Wrong. Finally, the letters "A", "N", and "D" do not appear in the Secret Word at all. These are Wrong. If one counts the number of Right Right (1), the number of Right Wrong (2), and the number of Wrong Letters (3) they should get 6 the same number letter of word we are working with this round.

As a Final Example look at this 15 letter game that was held in this thread:
 



ScoreboardI decided to build us a scoreboard of all the games we've held in this thread.
As of 1/21/2024 recorded 76 games (It's a pretty lengthy table). In the table we breakdown Word Length, Who was Mastermind, Who Solved it, The Secret Word, The Number of Guesses and where the winning word can be found in this thread.

Out of all the games these are all the folks who have one at least one round. (Last Updated: 1/23/2024)

Trying for 10 guesses. You can probably figure out my strategy of isolating letters, but I need to take some guesses soon.
Btw, just to clarify, I am assuming each letter is treated individually, even if the same letter repeats. If, for example, a word had 2 zeds, and I typed in jazzy when you were thinking of pizza, then you would say 1 right wrong (a) 2 right right (the zeds).
