    Try this:

    http://www.borrett.id.au/computing/petals-j.htm

    Without looking on another site, it took me about 40 minutes to finally figure it out. They say however the better at math you are the harder it is to get. Anyways, try it and if you want, post a screenshot to show you got it. But don't tell how to do it if you do!

    See, this is a game that I played, you can tell i got it because i have 31 rolls, 31 right, and 31 is my best roll. I didn't miss any, thus it means i win, if you get 10 in a row right it will tell you that you have won. Do yourself a favor, don't look on the internet for the answer...

    Done easily - all you have to do is read (and count!)
    But mainly read.

    Don't tell anybody :)
    Isn't it annoying when you get it?
    I had to write down a whole bunch of stuff but it did me no good :)

    I got the concept after a few hours.


    I still don't get everyone right, I am having problems with some of the rules.

    I got the pattern in about 12 guesses, although I agree that its probably harder if your better at math (math is by no way my strongest point, I only got a passing grade in my last main exams that require you to do math)

    The direction says "The name is important"
    It really is, for those of you who have trouble think about the name.

    Steevo, I'll bet you did exactly what i did at first, i took a bunch of numbers and figured out what was a 0,2,4, and 8. However it doesn't work for all of them.

    I visited the site for about 20 seconds.

    Music was annoying and the game was too complicated for my simple mind, so I left :p

    It's a piece of cake, but only if you realise how little maths is involved!
