That`s not true, If you read the background you`ll see it explains about how different people think in different ways.

wtflunk, if they wanted the answer, then they would search a website to find it the way you did. also, the way you announced the answer was probably why you made some people mad.

Dude! That was so incredibly easy! I must be an idiot. I can`t believe it took this guy a year. All you have to do is know the name of the game and have eyes.

somebody may have said this already, but all you just gotta count how many dots there are on a die that has a centre dot. ONLY the ones with a centre dot... which would be 3 and 5.

Thanks for the answer! I am so relieved! It took me all afternoon to try and figure it out.

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.

I figured it out within 15 seconds and 3 roll tries. One of those intuitive things, methinks.

Wow, what a disappointment, even after I knew how to do it it seemed like a let-down, I thought it would be cooler than that. The answer is so arbitrary its stupid.

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 people that post the answers are dumb fu*ks. seriously, do you need to wreck it for people that don`t know? If you really need to tell people that you think you`re that smart, tell them to message you for the answer, don`t be an ass.

Knew as soon as I saw it what it was. Played this game in a creative writing class when I was 10, only it was called "Polar Bears Around An Icehole". Cute way to get someone to think outside the box.

It`s so easy. The middle is the frickin` flower, and the petals are the ones around it. You have to have the flower for the petals. My god.

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

(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.

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.

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!

Wow, this is a great game.

Here`s a hint for those who don`t get it: Think about where the petals are on a flower.

Gah ... FINALLY I figured it out .. and that was because I read someone`s comment about how they looked at the dice as flowers rather than just counting all of the dots.

you add the first three dice together, then subtract the fourth one and add the last together
