Nice, but the name spoils it a little!

I really think that the name takes away some of the 'mystique' for this puzzle (and the fact that it's emphasised - 'The name of the game is important' - only adds to that!)

The puzzle itself *IS* fascinating, but we should give it a different name just to obfuscate the solution a little more (or at the very least, stop pointing out how important the current one is!)

Saying all that, I'm not usually a 'puzzler', but it was nice to spend a few minutes break away from bashing my website into shape! Smile

Good Stuff!

Dot's around the dot!?!?

Mate, you've missed my point! 'Petals around the Rose', along with the overly explicit clue ('The name of the game etc...') basically tells you the answer. It IS supposed to be a bloody puzzle, after all...

Rename it to something like, errr, I dunno... Rose Petals?!?! Petalmania?!?! Whatever, but just something a little less obvious! I think a puzzle should take a bit longer than a few minutes to solve, don't you?

I agree that we should rename the puzzle.
I figured it out BEFORE the first throw of the dice... The name of the game is a total give away.
