The name of the game is Petals Around the Rose. The name is very important. For each roll of the dice, there is one answer and one answer only, and the answer is all you get.

you can play it here (http://crux.baker.edu/cdavis09/roses.html).

i've already figured out the answer, but i'm not going to share. but you guys can all share theories and try to figure it out together. i will give hints, but only using the Socratic Method, where i answer your questions with a question back at you. :) have fun.

i've played this before. i heard that the smarter you are, the harder it is to figure out. apparently bill gates spend days trying and never did figure it out, he had to get someone to tell him what the answer to it was.

i've heard that too, but i think it's just about how you think or how your brain works. i don't think it has to do with how smart you are.

I hope it doesn't have to do with how smart you are, because I figured it out right away. :P

well, i guess it's not technically how smart you are, it's how complicated you think.

My answer would be is each and every rose is different so why would there be one correct answer? No, I am not a complicated thinker. lolol

Yah I think there IS no exact answer.
That's where you're wrong. There's an exact answer to every roll.
