Annie, the name of the game is very important "Petals around the Rose"! Think about this, and how it is connected to what you see!

Yeahannie! no one who knows how to play can tell anyone. we are sworn to secrecy. But the name is very, very, very,very important

the name is the secret of the game... forget about math and numbers... put attention to the name of the game... that is the most important... then do your math!

wow thats cool we played a variant in GT last semester, it was polar bears around the iceholes though. And after you figured out how many polar bears were around iceholes, you had to figure out how many fish they see. it was quite entertaining.

Nicole, it's all in the name... analyze the name, and think different than you did – and you'll get it.

Consider the name and don't think mathematical algoritms as much as you do pattern recognition. Maybe that's too much information but it should help those who are really stuck.

Rob, if you really want to know it badly, google for it... I'm sure some site or other will reveal it, if only in its JavaScript code!

If it helps draw a picture of a Flower, a sterotypical flower,
   then compare it all the numbers on the dice, look at what matches and dosn't match (this took me over an hour)
