By definition of the problem that's impossible unless you already knew what it was asking for. It took me about 10 rolls to give up and read the rest of the posts, then got it in about 4 more.tidalwdave said:I got that right away, first roll and five after. Very easy. Any more games?
There is not a way of misinterpretting the instructions they are very basic. Where the difference comes in is that peoples minds think differently. Some people will over analyze or over complicate the problem. Some people will just take it for face value make an assumption and if it works they are satified and move on. The first five or six times I rolled I was looking at number sequences and then the correct answers started to develop a pattern (which was probably just from the simplicity of the programming) so instead of just finding the simple answer I made the problem much harder than it was. But I still think getting it right off the bat is just luck.Dan said:Ok, then my question to those who didn't get it on the first try: how did you interpret the instructions before you got it right?

I am one of the ones that tried to out-think this. I looked at numbers patterns, math sequences, the use of the word rose and did it really mean "rows"... directions of the dots, and placement in the group as factors.Dan said:Ok, then my question to those who didn't get it on the first try: how did you interpret the instructions before you got it right?
