Description Edit | History

The clever little game Code 777 combines the elements of a good, logical deduction game and Indian poker. Each player receives a rack for keeping three tiles drawn from a pool of tiles, which are seven different numbers in seven different colors (28 tiles in total); however, the rack is turned away from you. When players sit in a circle, each player can see everyone else's tiles, except their own. Each turn, players draw a card with a question like, "Do you see more yellow sevens or more blue sevens?" which should help the others' determine their tiles. Once you're reasonably sure of which tiles you have in front of you, you can take a guess — but if you're wrong, you have to start over with a fresh set of tiles...

Code 777 was explicitly inspired by What's That on My Head?, and Alex Randolph credited Robert Abbott with co-designing this game based on that inspiration.

In 2010, Stronghold Games released Code 777: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, adding both a fifth player to the game and symbols to make it colorblind-friendly. In 2015, Stronghold Games released Code 777: 30th Anniversary Limited Edition, which is the final edition from Stronghold Games.

6 Code 777 Worksheet
My friends seem to agree this is the best format for working out your solution to Code 777. Each page gives you room for 6 deductions. Admittedly, the supposed color-blind friendliness of the game is not retained (the questions on the cards presume everyone understands the colors and do not relate to the numbers' symbols, anyway.) (The jpg was too dirty!)

7 Coloured NOTEPAD replacement sheets
This is a coloured version of the NOTEPAD sheets, for easier marking. This file can be printed to create additional NOTEPAD sheets to be used with CODE 777 by Stronghold Games. There are TWO, somewhat enlarged, Notepad sheets on each printed page for greater efficiency when you print. If you print this DOUBLE-SIDED, it will line up nicely, and you will get FOUR Notepad sheets on each page (2 on the front, 2 on the back).

3 Code 777 Notepad with questions (Japanese)
This file is a Japanese version of the notepad. The contents of the 23 questions are also indicated to this. 各プレイヤーがメモをしていく用紙の日本語版です。 23枚の質問の内容も記載されています。 v1 と v2 で若干内容が違います。 (v2 は色の絞り込みを重点的にメモしたい方向けです) 余談ですが、私はいつも質問カードをめくるのは一人が行うふうにして遊んでいます。

11 Code 777: NOTEPAD replacement sheets
This file can be printed to create additional NOTEPAD sheets to be used with CODE 777 by Stronghold Games. There are TWO, somewhat enlarged, Notepad sheets on each printed page for greater efficiency when you print. If you print this DOUBLE-SIDED, it will line up nicely, and you will get FOUR Notepad sheets on each page (2 on the front, 2 on the back). On a printer that supports double-sided printing, printing this double-sided can be done rather easily using the standard "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer", which is the default viewer for .PNG files on a Windows computer. In this program, set the "Number of times to use each picture" to an EVEN number. [Of course, ensure that your printer is ready to do double-sided printing before you start. :) ]
