    Fun game. A little frustrating for awhile. Took me about 8 minutes to figure out but much more satisfying to figure it out without help from this board! So don`t cheat!

    It`s good once you figure it out. I was making it WAAAAY too hard. I couldn`t see the forest for the trees, or I guess in the case the rose for the petals. Wcclark gave a good clue. Visualize a rose when you look at the dice.

    (if you got the answer, you´ll understand this)
    come on... I dont really think people get it too quick, because the first thing people do is to try to make a mathematical logic answer, since the first thing they see are numbers, because the dice represents numbers! I belive people get to realize somehow about the function of the numbers, and yes, there´s a way to do it mathematically, but it will take longer. The hint is to separate even and odd dices.

    For the love of Black Angus. I`m a loser. I waste my life posting on internet boards. I am so pathetic it`s not even funny. Why don`t I go out and do something with myself. I`m a lazy stupid incompetent waste of skin who does nothing but take up space and and oxygen which are more valuable to the termites eating away at governement subsidised housing. Wow, how can I be such a miserable failure. George Bush or John Kerry, depending on your political leanings are going: "Wow! He`s even more pathetic than me and that`s saying something." I could probably lead a good life with but only a small modicum of hard work but I`m so lazy, I won`t do a minimum of effort in order to get myself a decent life. I suck. People in Africa are doing everything to surivive an other day and I do nothing but leech off of society. If there was any justice in the world, I would be starving in Africa and they would be in my place. I should drop dead. Oh, BTW, I solved it on my second

    I got it first try, but I`ve seen a lot of stupid puzzles like that. I basically figured it was like the one where you throw the pens down, but put your hand on the table, and ask a person to figure out what number the pens represent, when really, they just have to see how many fingers you have on the table.

    The only two die that matter is the 3 and the 5. the center dot is the rose. the dots around the center dot are the petals. count the petals on each die. add them together. that is your answer.
