I got up early this morning, and while psyching myself up for the first school day of the quarter, I came across the Petals Around The Rose puzzle on one of the communities I occasionally read here on LJ. I sent this message around to my classmates, and now I share it with you:

>>>
"I can tell you only three things: the name of the game, the fact that the answer is always even, and the answer for any particular throw..."

Just a little diversion for you on the first day of Spring Quarter. Play it, see if you can figure it out, and if you do let me know. (Please, keep the key to the puzzle to yourself! Just let me know if you figure it out.)

P.S. Read what happened when Bill Gates encountered Petals Around The Rose, back in 1977:
