    Wasn't 100% on where to put this. It is fun and games, but wasn't sure of a subsection for it.

    See if you can work this out. Petals Around The Rose


    The name of the game is Petals Around the Rose. The name of the game is important. The computer will roll five dice and ask you to guess the score for the roll. The score will always be zero or an even number.

    Your mission is to work out how the computer calculates the score. Click on "Roll Dice" to start the game. Type in your guess and click on "Accept Guess" to get the result.

    Its a real head scratcher this. Don't spoil it for others if you work it out, just say how many rolls you did it in. I had a best run of 12 before getting to 25, and still haven't fine tuned my answer!!

    I know it now. I was sort of remembering results, but didn't know what was going on. I was doing all sorts of equations until I finally got it, but was about 40 rolls.
