This is the thirtieth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Agnes. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which shape cannot be drawn with one single line.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each picture should be composed of lines that meet at different points.

    With these pictures, if you find a single line that runs out beyond the others, you know you have to start your drawing there.

    Try tracing the answer out yourself.

Hint Two
    Some points may be the convergence point for several lines. You need to think hard about which line to take in and out of the point in order to make the sketches work.

    If your pen is entering a point formed by an even number of lines, you will always be able to leave the point via another line.

Hint Three
    One of the familiar objects below can't be drawn as a one-line puzzle.

    You'd be surprised by how easily some of the more complicated pictures can be drawn in one stroke.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It certainly looks like each picture was created in one stroke, but take a second look.

[edit] When Completed

Very nice!

There's actually a very easy way to tell whether or not a given picture has been drawn in one stroke.

This method will be revealed to you after you solve one more of these riddles.

[edit] Solution


The image on the bottom-left cannot be drawn with one stroke.

[edit] Progress

955 Picarats and 56 Hint Coins.
