- Mastermind Solving Algorithms
It first came out in 1972 (although there was a similar game before that called Bulls and Cows) and was solved by Donald Knuth in 1977. My method is greatly based on his algorithm.

My topic shows that games can be solved by programs. Other programs, like ones which solve sudoku, are similar in that they take a puzzle and come up with a solution
- Mathematical Basis
- Significant Implementation
My “Significant Implementation” is to actually create a program to solve Mastermind, and have it generalize to any number of pegs and colors.
