Think of a number with two digits. For example 43. Follow the Magic Gopher's instructions and he will amaze you by telling you what number you chose.

good game

 wrong! my number is 13! and the symbol is also wrong!

It must work, when you chose the number and subtracts the addition of its digits, in your case 14-(1+4), the result will be always a multiple of 9. Look in your case:

14-(1+4) = 14-5= 9!

Do the game again and notice how 0, and all the multiples of 9 (18, 27, 36, 45, 54...) have the same symbol, actually the symbol that Gopher will select.

I just tried it with 13 and it worked. - Are you sure you followed the instructions properly?
