, so there are
Secret Numbers. (The smaller that total, the easier the game!)
PLAYING THE GAME (more information below)
Try to Guess the Secret Number.
WHAT THE CLUES MEAN (when shown)
The clues are quantities, and are of two varieties. One variety is called "Exact"; the other
variety is "Partial". You will receive one clue for each digit in your guess, which is
Secret Number. If there are 5 digits in the Secret Number. you might receive as many as 5
clues (you might receive none). Some of the clues might be "Exact", and the rest "Partial".
Each "Exact" clue means that one of the digits in your guess is exactly in the right position,
compared to the Secret Number. You still have to guess or figure out which digit that is!
Each "Partial" clue means that some digit in your guess is in the Secret Number, but is not
located in exactly the correct place. Your goal is to receive an "Exact" clue for every digit.
