Hi there,

Interesting!  Not a game I've ever heard of before, but the package
description covers it thoroughly.

Perhaps not under that name, but this is more widely known these days by the name of its 1970 commercial version, "Mastermind".



Various forms of the game, not all word-based, are already in the archive:

$ apt-cache search mastermind
4digits - guess-the-number game, aka Bulls and Cows
ace-of-penguins - penguin-themed solitaire games
colorcode - advanced clone of the MasterMind code-breaking game
gnome-mastermind - Mastermind (TM) clone for GNOME Desktop
gtkboard - many board games in one program
sgt-puzzles - Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection - 1-player puzzle games

Of course that doesn't preclude the addition of another.
