On the Subject of Simon Stages

"We have Simon's Stages on this bomb."

  • The module shows a colour indicator and ten flashing lights with corresponding buttons.
  • If the module also has a 2 digit display on the top left, you are looking at the wrong module.
  • The light will flash in of ten colours (see the table below). An initial will confirm the colour for both the light and the colour indicator.
  • There are 5 stages. On each stage, a 3-5 note sequence will flash and a colour will be displayed on the indicator. Each stage will also show the flashing colours and their indicators of previous stages.
  • Submit the correct sequence of each stage for each stage (in order).
  • A strong press will indicate the end of the input for that given sequence.
  • If an error has been made upon completing the entire sequence, a strike will occur. The module will redisplay the entire sequence for this stage until all inputs are correct for this stage.
  • Upon 5 completed stages, the module will disarm.
