[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Examine the dice and try to find a reason or method to their orientation.

    You might think that the dice's arrangement has to do with the total number of dots, but this puzzle is far more simple than that. Just pay attention to the way the dots on the dice line up.

Hint Two
    Look at the way the dots are lined up.

    See how there are three rows of dots stacked on top of one another?

    One of those rows holds the key to this puzzle.

Hint Three
    The dots on the dice form three rows that are stacked on top of each other.

    You need to focus on what's going on in the top row. Scan the row from the left to the right. Do you notice anything going on?

[edit] When Failed

Try again!

These dice may seem like they're laid out randomly, but if you pay attention to one element, you'll see there's really a method behind their arrangement.

[edit] When Completed

Nicely done!

If you look at the dots on the dice as three rows stacked on top of each other, you can see that there is a trend in the top row of dots.

0, 00, 000... The groups of dots continuing in an unbroken chain in the top row increase by one each time. The final set of dots should be six dots in a row, and you need three more dots to make that happen. Therefore, the answer is C.

[edit] Solution


Die C fits into the pattern.

[edit] Progress

4295 Picarats and 200 Hint Coins.
