Petals Around the Rose logic puzzle

0 comments suggest edit

Found this interesting puzzle on BoingBoing. I figured it out. Can you?

Mark Frauenfelder: This looks like an interesting problem. Lloyd Borrett writes:

Take up the challenge of “Petals Around the Rose”. Also read what happened when Bill Gates was introduced to Petals Around the Rose in June 1977. How he tackled this brain teaser is an interesting insight into the man at the helm of Microsoft.

    fun game, though it only took about 90 seconds to figure it out (if not for the name of the game, would have taken longer). off to write a "Petals Around the Rose" algo now...

    Fun game. I linked to it in another forum I'm in and everyone is slowly becoming a potentiate of the rose.
