Petals around the rose

I don't know why, but I stumbled across an online 'game' called Petals around the rose the other day - it's one of those really abstract challenges, involving five dice and the instructions that:

The name of the game is 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.

It took me about half an hour (and the story of Bill Gates's experience) but I worked it out eventually. I'm glad I did - I'm the sort of person who can't go to bed until I've worked it out!
