    It will be useful to know where you are in your electronics knowledge. Can you to provide a brief description of your level of familiarity with electronics?

    Do you have any experience with microcontrollers? This is a perfect application for a micro.

    I read the description four times and don't see the connection between the game and multiplexers.

    I agree with papabravo. The level of complexity associated with the game of mastermind does not lend itself to implementation using a multiplexer.

    I think that the use of a microcontroller will yield the greatest likelihood of success. Even then there are considerations on the best way to support the presentation of the 6 different colored game pegs. That is not counting the black and white pegs customarily used to indicate the number of matching pegs in each of the guesses.
