How To Unlock The Mini Game?

The Number Guessing Game can be played in the 4th Chapter of Crisis Core. It is meant to be unlocked after you complete the rescue mission of getting back Zack’s stolen wallet from a little boy.

After rescuing the wallet, your character Zack will go to the slum market, where he will talk with the same boy he traded potions with. Aerith will be with you all through it.

Starting Off

You can start the mini-game by talking with the boy on Sector 5 Slums – Street.

Playing The Number Guessing Game

The game starts with a conversation where you go and negotiate to have your potions back, but the kid offers you to play the game with him. You should accept the boy’s offer and play the game for 100 Gil (in-game currency).

The game starting money can also be discounted depending on the number of potions Zack traded. After you give him the money, he explains the game. The mini-game is very straightforward; you are asked to guess the count of the number of children that walk by the store.

A maximum of 6 people can walk out, so your guess is between 1 and 6. The game is about probability, but your chances of guessing can be improved by asking the boy, Aerith, or the people around you.

Taking advice from both Aerith and the boy can help you guess the correct number with a straightforward technique.

Shortcut To Guessing The Correct Number

Advice from Aerith is free, but it depends on her Affection Level.

Accept the free advice to get more insight on your guess

As her affection level gets lower, the number of guesses she makes gets high, making it harder for you to guess.

  • Affection level lower than 40, 4 choices.
  • Affection level between 40 to 50, 3 choices.
  • Affection level higher than 50, 2 choices.

To increase her Affection level, you should play other mini-games before this one, like Perfume Mixture and Materia, so your guessing chances increase. For advice from the boy, you should tip him another 70 Gil then he will tell you his guesses.

Accept the offer to get help from the kid.

Now, the trick to getting the correct number is simple. There will always be one overlap between the number guesses of Aerith and the boy. That number has a high chance of being the correct guess about the number of kids walking by.

Note that this technique works best when the affection level of Aerith is highest. So, don’t forget to play the other mentioned mini-games before coming onto this one.

If somehow you miss guessing the correct number, you are not given any particular reward, but the boy will provide you with a tissue or a handkerchief.
