US Version

The arrow and number on each button indicate which button comes next in the sequence. After pressing a button, you move in the direction of the arrow.

The number of buttons you move corresponds to the number written on the button you last pressed. Once you've pressed the next button, you repeat the process and carry on until you arrive at the star button in the center.

UK Version

The number and arrow on each button indicate which button comes next in the sequence. After pressing a button, you move in the direction of the arrow.

The number of buttons you move corresponds to the number written on the button you just pressed. When you press the next button, you repeat the process and carry on until you arrive at the star button in the centre.

It's easy to follow the directions on the buttons to make your way to the final button, but it's a bit trickier to find the first button in the sequence.

US Version

Pick a button at random, and go from there until you reach the final button. If you repeat this process a few times, you should be able to narrow down potential candidates for the answer.

UK Version

You should have no trouble figuring it out from here.

You know enough to work it out now.
