This is the eighty-first puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Flick. In order to solve this puzzle, you must place the queen pieces on the board so that no two pieces are placed in the same column, row, or diagonal.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Here's a hint to get you started: place one queen in the dead center of the board.

Hint Two
    Once you place one piece in the board's center, you'll only have four pieces left to place.

    The remaining four pieces will surround the center in a symmetrical shape.

Hint Three
    Don't put any pieces in the four corner spaces of the board. You can also ignore the eight spaces directly surrounding the center space.

Very nice!

This one was a bit tougher than the 4x4 version, wasn't it? There's more than one answer for this puzzle, so if you really want a challenge, search for alternate solutions.
