This is the ninety-eighth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Martha. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the clues given to determine the arrangement of the cards.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If the club is to the immediate right of the heart, the heart can't be the rightmost card.

    Neither the diamond nor the spade are next to the heart. You know that the club is to the immediate right of the heart. So the card to the left of the heart is either the joker, or the heart is the leftmost card itself.

Hint Two
    The heart is to the immediate left of the club, and neither the joker nor the diamond are next to the club. So either the club is the rightmost card, or the spade lies to the right of it. Don't forget that the diamond, heart, and joker can't be next to the spade.

    Therefore, the spade is the rightmost card, and the club lies to its immediate left.

Hint Three
    From earlier hints, you know that from the right side, the cards appear in this order: spade, club, then heart.

    As for the two remaining cards, you know that the diamond can't be next to the heart, so the joker must be the fourth card from the right.
