This is the forty-first puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gerard. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many coins will end up in the top half when the rope is pulled.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There's no special trick to this puzzle. You just need to be diligent and count up those coins.

Hint Two
    Try tracing the rope with your stylus as you count up the coins. If you fill in the area that will travel upward when the rope is taut, you should be able to get an answer without too much work.

Hint Three
    There are 32 coins tangled in the rope. When all is said and done, you won't even pull in a third of them.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Be patient and work steadily toward finding a solution.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

You'll gather up nine coins when the rope is pulled taut. It's really quite a simple puzzle, but following every coin's path does take quite a bit of time.

[edit] Solution


Nine coins will be gathered.

[edit] Progress

1405 Picarats and 74 Hint Coins.
