Got it.

The answer's in the name.

That's a nicer version of the same game, with a counter and a pretty well-done piano version of Red Barchetta, by Rush.

hehe...this drives people nuts. I remember my brother doing this to me and it drove me nuts, and now I do it with MY friends! "The game is petals around the rose, the answer's always even, the name of the game is important!" This phrase drove me crazy!

I got the answer right first go and second and third and fourth, and then I was wondering if it's possible to get a wrong answer so I ignored what I thought the pattern would be and did get a wrong answer. :blink:

Did I do something wrong?


I still don't actually understand this at all.

There was one clue too much on the site,
The last sentence in the first part of the background,
Don´t read that /

/ I read it,
It gave me the additional edge,
And the puzzle could be solved in no time at the first time,
And now I feel annoyed, since it wasn´t intentional /-
