Is Petals Around the Rose really a game? Well actually it's probably better described as a puzzle, a challenge or a brain teaser.

If you succeed in working out the secret to the challenge, you become a Potentate of the Rose and qualify to become a member of the Fraternity of Petals Around the Rose. However, you must pledge to be a cruel and heartless wretch who will never divulge the secret of the game to anyone else. Only those that can work it out for themselves should know the secret of Petals Around the Rose.

Read what happened when Bill Gates was introduced to Petals Around the Rose in June 1977. How he tackled this brain teaser is an interesting insight into the man at the helm of Microsoft.
