    Give you a hint... If you use the fastest guy with the slowest guy, you will be wasting alot of precious time waiting for the slowest guy. Hope this hint helps

    Hi Vince, u can't send the 1sec guy all the way because in that case u need to add up all the other guy's time plus the 1sec guy's all return journey.

    U can save time by first sending 1sec and 3sec guy across first, bring back 1sec guy, send the 12sec and 8sec guy across, send back 3sec guy. then 1sec and 6sec goes, send back 1sec and then lastly, 1sec and 3sec goes together.

    Interesting games...

    Anyone solved the Petals Around the Rose yet? Took me about 20 minutes. 5 minutes for the first attempt, 10 minutes to read the article on Bill gates and study the rolls in that article, and then another 5 minutes to finally figure it out.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    Hint for the 3rd one: Don't think too complicated ! Keep it simple. The hint is at the title of the game ! There are some +, - involved with the numbering.

    Once you got the answer, it really looks simple, doesn't it ?

    Hmm... completed game 3. It's possible to get it done with an extra second left on the clock too.

    was rather boggled by it, esp cos i was thinking too complex math formulas.

    once i heard u all say its so simple, and with roygoh's hint that it involves the title of the game, i got it in 20 seconds :P :P

    time to read the bill gates article...
