Question

Guest

newcomers can be told that every answer is zero or an even number. They can also be told the answer for every throw of the dice that are used in the game. And that's all the information they get.

Roll #1. 4,1,6,3,6

"The answer is two."

"I can tell you only two things: the fact that the answer is always even, and the answer for any particular throw.

"You're supposed to tell me the answer before I tell you. I'll give you all the time you want, but don't tell me your theory, just the answer. If you figure it out, you don't want to give the idea away. If you get the answer right on six successive rolls, I'll take it that you understand the game."

Roll #2. 5,6,5,4,4

"The answer is eight."

Roll #3. 3,5,5,5,6

The answer is fourteen.

Roll #4. 2,6,2,1,4

The answer is zero.

Roll #5. 4,3,2,1,3

The answer is four.

Roll #6. 6,5,6,2,2

An integral part of the puzzle is that those who have solved it are urged to keep the solution a secret, so there is no solution posted to this one. It is not a hard puzzle to figure out.

Can someone confirm I really do understand the answer here by checking my additional example?

Roll #7. 5, 3, 6, 4, 5

"The answer is ten."
