  2. Making Guesses:

    • Player 2 writes down a 4-digit number in the guess box on page 2 and says the number out loud (e.g., "four thousand, eight hundred and thirty-one" instead of "4, 8, 3, 1").

  3. Providing Feedback:

    • Player 1 checks the guessed number and circles the numbers as follows:

      • Green circle: Correct number in the correct position.

      • Orange circle: Correct number but in the wrong position.

      • Red circle: The number is not used in the secret number.

  4. Winning the Game:

    • Player 2 has five attempts to correctly guess the hidden number. If they guess the number within five tries, they win!
