Guess the Rule
Reviewed By: Aaron Spelker
Guess the Rule took me back to both my high school geometry class and a college philosophy course that I took at university. The game structure is simple in design, but difficult to master. The game starts with four rows that have a variety of shapes and colors (three on each row)
Next to the row is either a red X or a green check. This indicates whether that row meets the rule. The fifth row shows a new mixture of shapes and colors and you are to determine if it meets the rule.
Here is an example:
Row 1: Green Square; Blue Triangle: Red Circle (Green Check)
Row 2:Yellow Square; Red Circle; Blue Triangle(Green Check)
Row 3: Blue Square; Blue Circle; Yellow Circle (Red X)
Row 4:Yellow Triangle; Yellow Circle; Yellow Circle (Red X)
Row 5: Blue Triangle; Red Triangle; Red Triangle
The player must determine if the fifth row fits the rule or not. If you guess correctly points are added to your score; guess wrong and points are deducted. After your guess on row five, a new row with new shapes and colors is added to the list for you to analyze. A typical round is twenty guesses with each new guess worth an additional point. So your first guess is worth 1 point, while your final guess is worth 20 points. Each answer provides you more information in order to deduce the rule that is being applied. Ultimately, you need to end the round with positive points to move on to the next challenge.
The game is simple in its design presentation and thus working with Voiceover is easy . Past elections and the corresponding results are straight forward. This makes it possible to step away from the game in the middle of the round and be able to return and pick up where you left off.
If you were wondering, the rule in the example above was the row had to have 1 blue triangle. Therefore, row 5 would meet the rule and be marked with a green check.
It is important to take the rows in small chunks. First, attempt to see what the first two rows have in common. Then test that against rows 3 and 4 to be sure those rows do not have that feature. Finally, test the hypothesis of the applicable rule to row 5. If you are correct, check row 6 against the proposed rule. If you are wrong, reassess the first 5 rows to determine an alternative rule to check against row 6. Evaluating these small chunks will keep you from getting overwhelmed with all the different colors and shapes.
