The Hexadecimal Guessing Game

As seen on the brain of g, the “What the Hex?” game consists of a fairly simple challenge: having been given a hexadecimal code, choose the corresponding color from a set of swatches. You can set the difficulty from 2 – 10 swatches, with a bonus 48 swatch difficulty. (Note: I beat the 48-swatch difficulty first try. That’s srs bsns.)

You can keep clicking until you hit on the right color; unless you’re very good at hex codes or very lucky, you’ll see more and more boxes melt away until you hit on that perfect shade. Web designers, programmers, and digital artists will love wasting massive time on this site.
