Step 1. Run Create new Virtual machine.

  • Run Virtual box.

  • Set your memory. I have 1 GB memory, so I give 256MB for Windows XP. It’s basic need for Windows XP to run smoothly. Then click ‘Next’ button.

Enigma is a good memory game. The idea is to find uncover pairs.

For example, ‘plus’ will match with ‘plus’ also. So, at the time you find that ‘plus’ in position one, then next time you find another ‘plus’, go back directly to position one.

Then you will have a pair ‘plus’.

You have to continue until you open all the signs.
