What are The Password Game answers? If you’ve ever frustratingly bashed your keyboard as you try to find the most secure password available that will appease the many rules required of you, The Password Game might just be the one that tips you into pure rage. The new browser-based game from coder Neal Agarwal is frustrating minds globally, but we’ve discovered some handy tips and potential answers if you’re truly stuck.
The Password Game looks easy enough to begin with, presenting itself as just a box that asks you to choose your new password, and reminds you that it needs capital letters, numbers, and special characters. This browser game takes a turn, though, when it begins asking about things like algebra and the current phase of the moon. It’s among the more mind-melting free games we’ve played recently. We’ve also got a list of all The Password Game rules to help you out even more.
All The Password Game answers
The game begins quite innocently, with the first four rules simply stating that you must include at least five characters, a number, an uppercase letter, and a special character. Simple enough, right? You don’t need us to tell you how to complete this part.
Rule 5 answer
The fifth rule insists that the digits in your password must add up to 25.
Here are the answers to The Password Game rule 5:
- 997 (9+9+7)
- 9871 (9+8+7+1)
- 9691 (9+6+9+1)
- 111111111111111111111111 (You get the idea)
The seventh rule asks you to include a Roman numeral. The ninth rule then states that these must multiply to make 35. There’s only two ways to do this, which we’ve included below.
Here are the answers to The Password Game rule 9:
- XXXV (35) x I (1)
- V (5) x VII (7)
Rule 13 answer
Here’s when The Password Game starts to get truly obscure, as it asks you to include the current phase of the moon as an emoji. You’ll need to find out what the current phase of the moon is by visiting Moon Giant, and then select the relevant emoji from our list below, and copy and paste it into your password.
Here are the answers to The Password Game rule 13:
- 🌑 – New moon
- 🌒 – Waxing crescent moon
- 🌓 – First quarter moon
- 🌔 – Waxing gibbous moon
- 🌕 – Full moon
- 🌖 – Waning gibbous
- 🌗 – Last quarter moon
- 🌘 – Waning crescent
Rule 16 answer
After being asked to include the name of your country and a leap year, The Password Game then asks you to include the best move in algebraic chess notation. Now, I don’t know about you, but this isn’t my strongest skill. In fact, at first, I wasn’t even sure about what the sentence meant. However, after some digging, we found out what rule 16’s intention was.
Each piece in chess has one letter which represents that piece in algebraic chess notation – which is the method of recording and describing a particular chess move. We simply needed to find the best move on the chess board in front of us and notate it.
Here is The Password Game rule 16 answer:
- R – Rook
- N – Knight
- B – Bishop
- Q – Queen
- K – King
- P – Pawn
Unfortunately, as the board changes every time an instance of the game is opened, there’s no way for us to tell you the definitive best answer for rule 16. However, to work it out, just combine the letter of the chess piece you want to move with the alphanumeric reference of the box you want to move it to. For example, moving the Bishop to C5 to check the King would read Bc5+.
There are tools, such as Next Chess Move, that you can use to recreate the chess board and it will tell you the best possible move to make. Then, simply convert this to the algebraic chess notation via our method above.
Rule 17 answer
This one is truly abstract. As if the brain-scratching from the chess rule wasn’t confusing enough, The Password Game now asks you to take a chicken named Paul, put him in your password, and keep him safe. Paul the chicken hasn’t hatched just yet, so he’s currently in an egg.
We must keep Paul safe now, that’s our task, and if you fail at the task and Paul dies, you have to start the game over with an overwhelming sense of guilt and shame.
Here’s how to keep Paul alive:
- Paste the egg emoji (🥚) at the beginning of the password
- Delete rule 20’s fire quickly to save Paul from burning
- Once Paul hatches he will need three caterpillars (🐛) each minute – do not overfeed him or let him starve
- Paste the caterpillar (🐛) in front of Paul to feed him
If ‘Paul was slain’ appears on your screen, you must start The Password Game over. Sorry, we don’t make the rules up. We just tell you them.
Rule 18 states that you must include atomic numbers that add up to 200. This involves the elements from the periodic table you added back in rule 12. You need to discover the value of each of the elements you included and make them equal 200. We suggest not using elements that include C, D, L, M, V, or X in them as these are Roman numerals and will conflict with rule 9.
Here is The Password Game rule 18 answer:
The next few rules are relatively straightforward: you’ve got to put out a fire, feed Paul (see above), add a wholesome affirmation to your password, and bold all of the vowels. Easy enough, surely. Rule 24 is a little more taxing – The Password Game will provide you a duration and you must insert the URL of a YouTube video with that exact length.
Now, because this changes each time, we can’t give you any examples but we can give you one very, very important tip: Do not forget to feed Paul. It takes longer than a few minutes to find a video of a very specific length and he will die. You will scream. It’ll be a whole thing.
You’ve then got to sacrifice two letters that can no longer be used – try to pick something obscure or less common such as ‘z’ or ‘q’ but make sure these don’t clash with the elements you chose before. You’ve then got to italicize twice as many characters as you bolded earlier, put the password in Wingdings font so it’s almost illegible, and then turn it into a color provided by The Password Game in the form of a hex code.
How to win The Password Game
After following yet more rules including changing font sizes, making the length a prime number, and including the length of your number in the password itself, you’ll reach rule 35 which asks you to insert the current time. Then, it’s time to win or lose.
After following all 35 rules The Password Game will ask you if this is your final password. You must note down your password before clicking this. If you confirm, the password will disappear and you will have two minutes to type in your exact password.
If you try to copy and paste the password, or if you fail, the game will reset and you will have to start The Password Game from the beginning again.
