Yes, but you have to keep doing the puzzle until you can get it right every time.

Lucky guesses don't count

First off, you gave no indication that you had solved the pattern. All you said is "one try," which for all I know meant you guessed right once, then stopped.

Second, thanks for ruining the fun because you thought I insulted your ego. No need for anyone else to try it now that you got mad and gave it away. I really thought you were more mature than that.

I love myself.

Got it after about 8 guesses, within about 1 minute.

I've noticed with others that either you get it quickly, or you get only after much frustration and profanity.

If you read the instructions, it says that smart people tend to take longer to get it. I can only infer how that might apply to you, Bohardy.

Aye, I got it too.

Took me a few goes, and the fact that they give you the correct answer when you get it wrong does help.

After an hour of thinking about it and even some hints, I wasn't able to understand it.

Many thanks to the person who gave me the solution. I would never have thought about it.

*edit*...I just thought I'd erase this just in case what I said could be considered a spoiler. I don't THINK it was, but better safe than sorry...suffice it to say that my son is far more intelligent than I...lol

After a few minutes I figured it out, but up to that point it was maddening!

Being a brain-teaser geek myself, I know that not being able to solve something like this can drive a person insane in a short time, so if no one minds I'm just going to say: quit looking for complex mathematical patterns, if that's what you're doing.

Although apparently that means I'm dumb. I would like to think I'm just good at that kind of thing :)

Thanks for the link, Zeni.

Took me like 10 tries to get it. Funny thing is that it's a very simple thing instead of something particularly complex.

So for those who are still trying, don't wreck your brain, and try to find the meaning on the instructions (which has very little to do with complex mathematics).

You know the more people tell you how easy it is, the more frustrating it gets.

It took me a while of frustration and gursses to get it. There was at least one time I was certain I solved it, only to be aggravated. When I finally got it, I was so flustered, I had to test it many time to make sure I got it (and that it was not dumb luck).
