The Password Game Rule 14

The Password Game has indeed gone viral recently, and while the creators of it are very creative and intelligent, the game can be a hell of a torture, even if it’s truly something exciting and amazing to play. There are a lot of tasks in the Password Game and one of the most famous ones is related to the Periodic Table of Elements and the Two-Letter Symbols from it. Let’s give you some tips on which Periodic Table Elements are good for this rule.

Which Two Letter Symbols from the Periodic Table Should You Use in The Password Game?

First of all, we need to remember the Roman numerals. They will definitely cause a problem with this rule, along with some country names that start with letters that are a chemical element.

Roman numerals are not very complicated, and the game will highlight them when needed. I will give examples of Roman Numerals below, and highlight the basic ones.

  • 1 – I
  • 2 – II
  • 3 – III
  • 4 – IV
  • 5 – V
  • 6 – VI
  • 7 – VII
  • 8 – VIII
  • 9 – IX
  • 10 – X
  • 11 – XI
  • 12 – XII
  • 13 – XIII
  • 14 – XIV
  • 15 – XV
  • 16 – XVI
  • 17 – XVII
  • 18 – XVIII
  • 19 – XIX
  • 20 – XX

You will notice that “4” and “9” are written with “1” before “5” (or “10”). The same goes for a lot more other numbers, so the principle is in short: 1, 2, 3, 5-1, 5, 5+1, 5+2, 5+3, 10-1, 10:

  • 40 – XL
  • 50 – L
  • 60 – LX
  • 90 – XC
  • 100 – C
  • 400 – CD
  • 500 – D
  • 600 – DC
  • 900 – CM
  • 1000 – M

Now that you have learned about Roman Numerals and the dangers they impose on your Password Game session, you can start adjusting so that your Periodic Table of Elements numbers start adding up. You need to be on the lookout for every chemical element that has I, V, X, L, C, D, and M in the symbol because it will cause an impact on your Password due to the alphanumeric (arab numeral) values (1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000).

We have all of the periodic table elements listed and sorted in a separate article so that you can add up these numbers really fast. Fm (100), Sn (50), Ne (10), and H (1) are pretty good, but you’ll 100% need a lot of adjustments.

That’s it for the short chemistry and math class here at Prima Games.
