Petals Around the Rose

Is Petals Around the Rose really a game? Well actually it's more of a puzzle or a brain teaser. Are you up to the challenge?

Over the years I've ended up creating a few different versions of this interesting challenge. But the JavaScript version of the game below is the only version currently working with the most popular web browsers of today.

Play Petals - JavaScript — Netscape Navigator
The JavaScript version was originally designed to work with Netscape Navigator v3. It was updated in September 2004 to work fine with both Microsoft Internet Explorer v6 and Netscape Navigator v7.

Bill Gates Plays Petals Around the Rose

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

Fraternity of Petals Around the Rose

Or, you might like to look at the register of those who have solved this challenge, become a Potentate of the Rose, and qualified to become a member of the Fraternity of Petals Around the Rose. Members have pledged never to 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.
