This is the seventy-first puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Giuseppe. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which boy is telling the truth to determine who ate the sausages.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Remember, you want to find the person who ate the sausages, not the people who are lying.

    To attack problems like these, go through your list of potential thieves, assume that each one is guilty, and see which statements fit in each case.

    That should get you started. Good luck!

Hint Two
    If you have chosen the right person, then three of the four boys' statements should be false. If you think you've found the culprit, but only two of the four boys' statements turn out to be lies, you haven't found the thief yet.

    Here's another valuable piece of information: only one person ate the sausages.

Hint Three
    All right, after this hint, you'll probably be able to guess the answer without thinking, but here we go.

    A and B are lying.

    Keep that information in mind and you should have your answer in no time.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

C ate the sausages, and the only person telling the truth here is D.

If you assume A to be the culprit, both C's and D's statements must be correct. Choose B, and the other three boys' statements must be true. If you make D out to be the criminal, then what both B and C are saying must be true.

None of these possibilities fit the conditions set forth in the puzzle.

[edit] Solution

C ate the sausages.

[edit] Progress

2475 Picarats and 123 Hint Coins.
