This seems less about "simon says" the social game, and more about
"simon", the 1980s electronic toy.

That toy had four colored buttons that would light up in a sequence,
playing a tone for each color.  The player would then have to press
the buttons in the same sequence.  The game would then replay the
sequence and add an additional step.  Player would have to enter the
longer sequence in.  Continue until player loses (and game made an
angry buzz).

It was quite addictive.
