This is the twenty-seventh puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gordon. In order to solve this puzzle, you must seat the brothers correctly so that a brother isn't seated next to one that is directly above or below him in age, as well as making sure brothers 3 and 5 are not seated together.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Don't spend too much time trying to think it out. Instead, just move those brothers around and see what develops. There are only three seats Brother 2 can sit in because he can't sit next to Brother 1. Plop him down in any one of those seats and move on to Brother 3. We know Brother 3 can't sit next to Brother 2... And so on and so forth.

Hint Two
    This puzzle would be a breeze if it weren't for the spat between Brother 3 and Brother 5. What a pain they are.

    Sit Brother 3 next to Brother 1. That ought to keep the little guy in line.

Hint Three
    You already know to sit Brother 3 next to Brother 1.

    Next, sit Brother 4 directly across the table from Brother 1.

    The rest is up to you.

[edit] When Failed


They're an unruly bunch, so seat the brothers so they won't fight at the dinner table.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

Sit the boys as shown and there shouldn't be any trouble. The mirror image of this seating arrangement is also a valid answer.

Finally, a meal in peace.

[edit] Solution


Seat the brothers as shown.

[edit] Progress

875 Picarats and 52 Hint Coins.
