Petals around the rose

The name of the game is "Petals Around the Rose". The name is really important. I will roll five dice and ask you to guess the score for the roll. The score will always be zero or an even number. Your mission is to work out how the score is calculated. That's easy, even Bill Gates managed to do ;)

Instructions. As you can see, the first roll is already in place. It's time to guess! Type in your guess and click on "Check" to see the correct answer. Then try to figure out what's wrong and either click on "Roll" for another turn, or enjoy the solution if you are sure you solved it properly. Good luck, have fun!

Your guess

Based on Lloyd Borett article. Thanks to ILLegaL for letting me know about this puzzle!
