Default Re: A Week's Worth of Rep

I think I figured it out. The game starts out with 25 possible numbers (1-25). However, the numbers are divided into 5 color groups, with 5 numbers in each group. Where the game "guesses" your number is when you choose the house that contains your number. Each of the 5 houses only contains one number from each color group, so by telling the program which color group your number belongs to, and further which house it is in, it then has all the info it needs to "guess" your number.
