Yeah I've seen that one... it's one of those things that the answer was so obvious yet some people take hours trying to figure it out... sounds familiar :D

I didn't get it either. It shows all the dice rolled and then it asks for a guess on the total? just add it up. the directions make no sense to me.

I tried "just adding it up" and it kept telling me the answer was 2. And I had like 4 sixes.

Makes no sense to me.

chulen.. good theory. But as I said I roll a couple of sixes and some fives and a four and it tells me the answer is 2 or 0.

I'm testing your theory

I rolled a one, one, three, three, five.

I added just the outside ones up and got 8 and it said ***YES***


I rolled six, six, four, five, two
I guessed 10 and got "It's 4, not 10"
