The same gift is on squares 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72 and 81.

25 - 2 - 5 = 18
28 - 2 - 8 = 18
22 - 2 - 2 = 18
76 - 7 - 6 = 63
72 - 7 - 2 = 63
etc.

Sorry to be a killjoy.

the freaky part is the gift changes when you do it a couple times.

Anyone notice a pattern here?

Let's break that down.

Pick a number…….. you chose ab.

ab = 10 X a + b

insert into our equation above:

(10a + b) - a - b
= 9a

So, the sum is always a multiple of 9.

We're not all like KenN….

(channeling CraigH) And the fact that the gift changes each time is hardly mysterious. The page is just programmed to randomize each time it is started. Whatever gift falls on 9 is repeated on each multiple of 9 and then that is what Robin chooses. Big whoop.

It's pretty cool when you first try.
