The first release of program.

The game has got two modes: a single mode (a computer places and hides chesspieces for you) and a network mode. In last one you can play with somebody else through a net, by placing your chesspieces for your opponent and guessing his variants. The winner's who will guess opponent's chesspieces for the smallest number of steps.

For a net game you and your contender should have a protocol TCP/IP on your computers. In time of connection the program will ask you a number IP of a computer which you want to communicate with and if both computers are in the same local net you should know your contender's IP address. It will be enough to enter a name of the computer in a required place


You should guess 4 hidden chesspieces for 10 steps as a maximum. After each attempt you will receive a prompt on the right side of the game field. The prompts are black or white evaluate chesspieces. If you guess a color and a place of the chesspiece it's black; if you guess only a color - it's white. Among hidden chesspieces you can find even 3 ones painted into the similar color.  In general chesspieces that take part in the game are painted into 6 different colors.

Advice to the game

For successful game you should use methods that can exclude some colors. You can have your own methods to achieve this but often during two prior steps players usially expose combinations with chesspeieces painted into two different colors. The other way is the first combination consists of 4 different chesspieces and in the second one chesspieces painted into two colors, that have been exposed at the first step. It will facilitate further logical conclusions essentially.

If you've already calculated a chesspiece which is absent among hidden chesspieces and you are sure in it you can use it in your further steps for verifying other chesspieces.
