## On the Subject of Simon Forgets

Hey, It’s not alliterative! You can’t do tha...   oh.

On the module there are 10 coloured buttons that can flash, 10 coloured LEDs, and a display which will show you the current stage number.

On each solved non-ignored module, a new stage will start. The colour of each button will be swapped around, the state of the coloured LEDs will change and a new flashing sequence will be played.

On each stage, use the lit LEDs, the colours of the buttons, and the sequence of flashing buttons to determine the correct sequence of colours to press in order to solve the current stage. This is called a Stage Sequence. The first two stages are 5 colours long, the next two stages are 4 colours long, and any subsequent stage is 3 colours long.

Then, take each Stage Sequence, and refer to the Section 2 to get the Calculated Sequence for that stage.

Once the correct Stage Sequence has been entered, the flashing sequence stops and the LEDs will turn off. Solve another module to get to the next stage.

Pressing a correct button will make the flashing sequence stop. If no other button is pressed during 5 seconds, the input will be reset and the flashing will start playing again.

Entering an incorrect sequence or solving another module without entering the Stage Sequence will result in a strike. The answer does not change and must be calculated when the stage is generated.

When all the other modules have been completed, the display will turn blank. Press all of the Calculated Sequences in the order they were obtained.

If an incorrect colour is pressed, a strike will be registered, and the correct button will flash once. Press it before continuing to enter the solution.

## Section 2: Determining the Calculated Sequence

This part is used to determine the sequence you need to press at the end.
Apply the instruction to each colour in the sequence, one by one.
The coloured buttons are numbered in reading order starting from 1, and wraps around.
The buttons will change colours on each stage, so be careful!

 First Stage: If the bomb has no indicators at all, shift each colour up by 5. Otherwise, if the bomb has both an unlit CAR and a lit FRK indicator, shift each colour up by 2. Otherwise, if the bomb has either a lit CAR or an unlit FRK indicator, shift each colour down by 4. Otherwise, if the bomb has no lit indicators, shift each colour up by the amount of unlit indicators. Otherwise, shift each colour down by the amount of lit indicators. Second Stage: If the bomb has more than 1 Serial port, and the Serial Number contains a vowel, shift each colour down by 3. Otherwise, if there are a Serial port on the bomb, shift each colour up by 6. Otherwise, if the previous Calculated Sequence does not contains Red, shift each colour down by the Red button’s number. Otherwise, shift each colour up by the last digit of the Serial Number. Third Stage: If the bomb has more than 3 battery holders, shift each colour down by the number of batteries on the bomb plus 2. Otherwise, if there are more than 3 batteries on the bomb, shift each colours up by the number of battery holders on the bomb plus 1. Otherwise, if the previous Calculated Sequence does not contains Blue, shift each colour down by the Blue button’s number. Otherwise, shift each colours up by the number of batteries on the bomb.
Fourth Stage:

If both the Red and Green LEDs were lit, shift each colour up by the White button’s number.

Otherwise, if the Green LED was lit, and the Red LED was not lit, shift each colour down by 1.

Otherwise, if the Red LED was lit, and the Green LED was not lit, shift each colour up by 2.

Otherwise, shift each colours down by 1.

Fifth Stage:

This is a special stage. Use the lit LEDs to calculate a number, then shift each colour up by that amount if the Serial Number ends with an even number. Otherwise, shift down.

Lit LEDs Value
White +2
Orange -1
Yellow +3
Green -2
Pink +5
Cyan -5
Purple -3
Magenta +1
Blue +4
Red -4
 Sixth Stage : If the White LED was not lit, shift each colours down by 2. Otherwise, if the Red LED was not lit, shift each colour up by 3. Otherwise, if the Blue LED was not lit, shift each colour down by 4. Otherwise, if the Green LED was not lit, shift each colour up by 1. Otherwise, if the Pink LED was not lit, shift each colour down by 1. Otherwise, if the Yellow LED was not lit, shift each colour up by 2. Otherwise, if the Cyan LED was not lit, shift each colour down by 4. Otherwise, if the Orange LED was not lit, shift each colour up by 3. Otherwise, do not shift the colours. Seventh Stage : If the previous Calculated Sequence contains Red, shift each colour up by 1. Otherwise, if the previous Calculated Sequence contains Yellow, shift each colour down by 3. Otherwise, if the previous Calculated Sequence contains Green, shift each colour up by 2. Otherwise, if the previous Calculated Sequence contains Blue, shift each colour down by 1. Otherwise, shift each colour up by 3. Eighth Stage : If the Orange LED was lit, shift each colour down by the last digit of the Serial Number. Otherwise, if the Pink LED was lit, shift each colour up by the number of solved modules currently on the bomb. Otherwise, if the Green LED was lit, shift each colour down by the number of batteries on the bomb. Otherwise, if the Purple LED was lit, shift each colour up by the first digit of the Serial Number. Otherwise, shift each colour up by 4.
Ninth Stage :

If the Serial Number contains at least 2 letters from the word "Steinway", shift each colour up by 4.

Otherwise, if the Serial Number contains at least 2 letters from the word "Intimate", shift each colour down by 2.

Otherwise, if the Serial Number contains at least 2 letters from the word "Oriental", shift each colour up by 3.

Otherwise, if the Serial Number contains at least 2 letters from the word "Tachycardia", shift each colour down by 7.

Otherwise, shift each colour up by 2.

Tenth Stage :

This is another special stage. Exactly 2 LEDs will be lit during this stage. Based on the lit LEDs, refer to the table below for a value, and shift each colour up by that amount if the Serial Number contains a vowel. Otherwise, shift down.

White Orange Yellow Green Pink Cyan Purple Magenta Blue Red
White X +5 -3 +2 +1 +2 -3 +3 +1 -4
Orange +5 X +1 +4 -3 0 -2 +2 -1 +2
Yellow -3 +1 X -1 +2 -1 -5 +4 +1 0
Green +2 +4 -1 X 0 +3 +6 -4 +5 -1
Pink +1 -3 +2 0 X -5 +2 0 -2 +4
Cyan +2 0 -1 +3 -5 X +4 +1 0 -5
Purple -3 -2 -5 +6 +2 +4 X -1 +3 +2
Magenta +3 +2 +4 -4 0 +1 -1 X +1 -2
Blue +1 -1 +1 +5 -2 0 +3 +1 X +1
Red -4 +2 0 -1 +4 -5 +2 -2 +1 X
 Eleventh Stage : If the White LED was lit, shift each colour up by the White button’s number. Otherwise, if the Orange LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Red button’s number. Otherwise, if the Yellow LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Pink button’s number. Otherwise, if the Green LED was lit, shift each colour up by the Purple button’s number. Otherwise, if the Pink LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Red button’s number. Otherwise, if the Cyan LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Orange button’s number. Otherwise, if the Purple LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Cyan button’s number. Otherwise, if the Magenta LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Blue button’s number. Otherwise, if the Blue LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Yellow button’s number. Otherwise, if the Red LED was lit, shift each colour down by the Magenta button’s number. Otherwise, do not shift the colours. Any other Stages : If the White LED is lit, shift up each colour by 3. Otherwise, if the Yellow LED is lit, use the Eleventh Stage’s instructions. Otherwise, if the Pink LED is lit, use the Eighth Stage’s instructions. Otherwise, if the Magenta LED is lit, use the Sixth Stage’s instructions. Otherwise, if the Red LED is lit, use the Fifth Stage’s instructions. Otherwise, if the Blue LED is lit, use the Seventh Stage’s instructions.
