  1. Yeah I play Mastermind but the way the guy narrates the gameplay is (intendedly) annoying. Would rather listen to a chess commentary.

  2. Wonder how it would have played out if Archer was there instead.

    Archer: Eat a dick, Mastermind!
    shoots bad guys
    Archer: Huh. Probably should have led with that. turns to woman And you are?
    Fancia: Fancia Buttslam.
    Archer: Ok, we need to bring 'phrasing' back.

  3. Fun.

    But nothing beats Mitchell and Webb's version of Casino Royale, with the carnival games. 🙂
    (It's on youtube)

  4. So, Mastermind is like the hacking minigame in Fallout 3, the first installment of Bethesda's original video game series? Wow, people of the older generations had it hard before smartphones were a thing.

  5. Mastermind is a very easy game, I don't think it's possible to lose as long as you use a good strategy. But Bond is not an intellectual, he's an assassin with spying privileges who relies on the extremely high death rate of the women around him to prevent potential blackmail.

  6. Just by looking at his guesses, Bond had the yellow pin in the right place, the red pin is one of the colors but not in the proper place, and he made a mistake taking out the blue or white pin. If I had to hinder a guess, Blofield's was red, yellow, with blue or white being one pin and another color aside green and black being the other.

  7. He can't just pull his gun and shoot the bad guys that want to have a drawn out dramatic showdown … That's Indiana Jones' move!

  8. I remember trying to play Neopets Mastermind as a kid, but I was so confused about the rules, no matter how much I read them. I didn't understand how you could get an odd number of 'right color, wrong place' things. I didn't understand until I was given step by step instructions on how to code.
    My cheap way to solve is to waste n-1 turns (n is number of colors) with four of the same color, to find out how many of each color you need, and then solving from there.

  10. I'll be the first to say that this James Bond is NOT very good at his job.
    …probably too busy getting it on with Fancia Buttslam.

  11. If there was a scene where this exact scenario happened and it was played out authentically, then I'd watch it.

  12. So it is a logic puzzle and Bond's patience could only last 2 attempts? That's what too many martinis do you.

  13. Easy cheat. Bond shoots the villians, then looks behind the Mastermind game-shield for the color combination! (and then bangs the Bond Girl)

  14. Was not expecting to hear the inimitable Jared Harris voicing the Bond Villain…but now I have a mighty need to see him in that role in real life!

  15. Was forced to learn this game when I was 8 by an older relative who just felt so damn smart explaining the rules and the pegs.

    James Bond made the right call.

  16. 008 : I was expecting him to raise his finger, just like Archer, when he's drinking and he doesn't want to be interrupted.
