How many times did it take you to figure it out?
I heard about it from a friend and he says that its challenging so i want to see how long it took all of you "frat" boys to get it....
Some friends and I got it in a couple rolls.

about 2 times reading the bill gates story, 25 times reciting "Petals around the Rose" in my head and 10 minutes of thinking it had something to do with the color or order of the dice (until it clicked in my head that if they were rolling dice on the floor they werent coming out in a certain order in a straight line, and they probably werent colored) when i finally figured it out i just smiled, did 25 of them in a row correct and signed up to do a few posts on the forums Razz

good times

It took me 2 hours and 15 minutes. How's that for not giving up eh? Razz I was thinking waaay too complicated, like always. *sigh* ... Though, like often said, this simply makes me smarter Wink

Yes, the initial few minutes I spent with all the "if's" and after a few tries, put it away. Next morning, woke up with the answer! Laughing Cheers, and have fun!!!! Very Happy MoonDog

Tried the game, clicked a few times in quick succession (about 15) while looking at the pattern, then started serious guessing for 5 turns and laughed at the solution.

The most dissappointing aspect of this teaser for me is I wish it would have taken me longer! The real fun in any teaser is the DOING !! The answer ends the fun. Sad

Cheers.... Cool ....MoonDog

It just took me 45 minutes and over 100 rolls to get it. And even when I had the correct solution I had to have the 'Petals around the rose' significane explained to me.

I think the sight recognition aspect of this adds to the fun, along with the number, and answer parts. Too me, anyway.

I spent about an hour one day thinking about various mathimatical complexities that could bring about the answer, put it away because I knew it had to be simple... was bored last night and started playing again.

Seems being very overtired works wonders on thinking illogically. I got it in about 15 minutes then... I finally started thinking about how the name fit into the dice, rather than thinking about wordplays...

Then joined so I could have full satisfaction of solving the puzzle! But yeah... it took my mom about 15 minutes to get it as well. *shrugs* I guess I'm smarter than I look. Snrk. I always thought I was illogical until now...

ok.... Im a really just "stupid", because ive heard that the longer it takes, the smarter you are, It took me 15,20 seconds to figure this out. I dont know wether to be proud, or ashamed.
