FREE Mastermind Board Game for Teachers

8 09 2012

Thanks to my friend Sue for passing this along! Pressman Toy Corporation is offering a free copy of the game Mastermind for use in classrooms! If you’re a teacher, simply fill out the form, and a copy of the game will be shipped to you at your school. While supplies last, of course!

I like having a selection of fun and educational board games in my classroom, as they make a great free-time or reward activity. This one looks right up my alley! Here’s a description of the game from the Mastermind website:

It’s the code maker vs the codebreaker in this classic board game of logic and deduction. MASTERMIND board game sets itself apart from other traditional board games as a fun and challenging game of smarts. With over 2,000 code possibilities, you can match wits over and over again. MASTERMIND board game is available in its award-winning classic version, Ultimate MASTERMIND for experts, in travel editions for fun on-the-go, and several children’s versions including MASTERMIND Animal Towers for children ages 6 and older.

In order to win in this classic board game, players must use strategy and problem solving skills to outsmart their opponent. One player is the codemaker and creates a code of colored pegs. The other player is the codebreaker and attempts to break the code with help from clues given by the codemaker. Players take turns being codemaker and codebreaker and whoever breaks the code in the least amount of moves wins. Once the code is broken, the players can switch, finding out who can break the code more quickly, to get the title of MASTERMIND!

It’s a $12.99 value, and I’m very impressed that Pressman is passing along freebies to teachers! Very cool of them! Here’s the link
