On the Subject of Simon Spins

You’re good as long as it’s not your head that’s spinning.

  • There are three paddles attached to a pivot. These paddles have different properties (colors, shapes, symbols, etc.) that are all listed in the table on the leftbelow.
  • Use the third character of the serial number to determine which row to start at. If the sixth character of the serial number is odd, add 10.
  • In stage 1, look at the starting row’s leftmost column and press the paddle that has the shown property. Remember which of the properties in the next row apply to the paddle you just pressed.
  • In stage 2, press the paddle with the remembered property. Then press the paddle that has the property one to the right in the same row, but remember which property in the next row applies to the last paddle you pressed.
  • In each subsequent stage, press the paddles with the previously remembered sequence of properties in the order you remembered them. Go one to the right of the last property you used, press this paddle, and remember which property in the next row applies to that paddle.
  • If you reach the bottom or right edge of the table, wrap around to the top row or left column.
  • There are between 3 and 5 stages to this module.
  • Pressing an incorrect paddle at any time will incur a strike and reset the module to stage 1.

*Properties marked with an asterisk relate to the bottom side of a paddle. You can long-press a paddle to turn it to the other side.
