This is the eighty-second 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. The queens should also be placed so that no other pieces could be placed on the board.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This one's a bit of a puzzler, but if you check everything thoroughly, you'll find the answer sooner or later.

    Don't put anything in the center square.

    Remember that you have to arrange the pieces so that no queen blocks another's line of movement. Even if you think you've got the answer, if one of your queens turns red, it means that you haven't got the placement just right yet.

Hint Two
    One of your three queens needs to go in a corner space.

Hint Three
    Two of your queens need to be placed within the eight squares that directly surround the center space.
