[edit] Hints

Hint One
    A key phrase that you should keep in mind as you solve this puzzle is "sum total."

Hint Three
    Fun fact time!

    Did you know that opposing faces of dice always add up to seven?

[edit] When Failed


There must be some reason why this boy is whispering those numbers. It's up to you to find it.

[edit] When Completed


The answer is 17.

The boy is counting the number of dots currently visible on the die. The only face of the die not included in this count is the one that faces down.

The top and bottom sides of a die always add up to seven, so it's easy to calculate the total for the five faces exposed on any given roll.

[edit] Solution


The boy will whisper the number 17.

[edit] Progress

4505 Picarats and 200 Hint Coins.
