Tremendous game. Simple rules. Quick play. Code breaking games are generally fun, and this is the best. Except for Jotto, of course. The plus in Coda is that you can play with more people. It's awesome with 4! Has an amazing "just ONE more game" factor...

Although at first glance this game may seem a little simple, it's quite challenging when you actually get down to playing.

Game play is simple enough, and fast in the first round, but the later rounds slow considerably when you have to check all the displayed tiles before giving your next 'guess'.

Plays best as a three or four player game.

Game is quick, leading to many cries of 'just one more game' when being played in our family.

A great little deduction game. It plays very quickly and scratches the deduction itch nicely. And if you lose, just set it up and play it again…and again…and again.

Fun deduction game that plays fast and rewards careful observation, yet can be enjoyed no matter how much mental effort you put into it. This comes out more often at my classroom game club than any other game (and I have over 80 games there!). I've played dozens of times, and still enjoy it a lot.

The very few great deduction light game. Simple rules, but create clever game play. Excellent components. Playable by adults. Also recommendation for kids to practice on logic deduction.
Generally speaking, fair players use guesses. Good players beat fair players by standard logic. Lucky players beat good players by luck. Strong players beat lucky players by better deduction, observation and risk assessement.
A fun game for 3-4 players. A challenging game for 2-3 players. A very good recommendation to schools.
No need to guess it even if you know what it is.

I highly enjoy playing Coda with Derek. Cannot see any other players who are up for a match with me yet.

When players complain about disadvantage being the first player, I maintain a more than 50% chance at first guess as a first player. I so far also maintain 100% winning rate in Coda games with winning 3 out of 5 or winning 4 out of 7 rounds settings.

Pretty good deduction game. Very simple, but makes you think. It takes minutes to explain the rules but the game can be very tense as you wonder whether the other players are smart enough to have made the same deductions as you have.

I don't have much to say about it other than I like the mechanic of having to reveal the tiles when you guess incorrectly (in order to make it easier on your opponent) and add them if you guess correctly (to make it harder for your opponent). This adds a thrilling element to an otherwise simple game. It reminds me a lot of Mastermind, which was a childhood favorite, and I like games that involve both logic + guessing. In fact, logic (or "deduction") games might be my favorite type. Thanks to BF for explaining the end strategy to me... I guess I was a bit slow but I'm catching on. Yay! I really like this game! The LH/RH thing mixes me up sometimes but overall, it's a great game!

A quick and almost perfect filler. Shuffling of the tiles in the German Edition is a tad complicated, as they tend to flip. For my taste the amount of luck is okay in this very light deduction game. Have just played with two so far.

Short, simple game that I wanted to play again immediately after play #1. That alone gives this game an initial rating of an 8.

Let's be honest -- there's not much here, but for just a bunch of plastic tiles I think they made a decent game.

Fast to play and very fast to teach, but not just luck driven (it involves memory, deduction, bluffing).
A third set of different colored tiles would make a nice expansion.

Picked this up for $5.50 in an after Christmas (04) sale. The rating I gave it doesn't do it justice, but sometimes a game is just "pretty good" in the grand scheme of things and "great" in the right circumstances.

This game is a light deduction game with a fair amount of luck. What's nice is that, at least for the times I played it, it requires just the right amount of thought for a quick filler. Sure there is alot of luck involved, but not too much for a filler game.

So far we have only played two player games. Time and more players may change my opinion.

Deduction games are a big favorite of mine, and Coda is a good one! Figure out your opponents 4 (usually 5 or more tiles by game end!) numbered tiles by eliminating other tiles by your clever deductive powers. My GF's 10 year old is ringer at this, winning all 3 games against us.

Nagyon jó játék akár 2 főnek is. A kezdő játékos hátrányos helyzetből indul, de nem vészes, kiegyenlítődik a játék során. Akár gyerekekkel is játszható, 1-2 kör után belerázódnak a kisiskolások is.
