This is the one hundred and fifteenth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must examine the stall's right window. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which box has a different design to the other three.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each side of a box is in direct contact with four others. Pay attention to how each side connects to four other sides of the cube and in what arrangement.

    Do this for other sides of the cube and you'll find an inconsistency that differentiates the odd cube out.

Hint Two
    From what you can see in boxes A and C, you know that the star is connected to the square, sun, heart, and diamond. It doesn't touch the X.

    According to boxes B and D, the X touches the sun, heart, square, and diamond.

    Hey, wait a second! There's something fishy about one of those arrangements!

Hint Three
    Box A is one of the three identical boxes.

    The face with the X is directly opposite the face with the star.

    Use these two clues to see if they apply to boxes B, C, and D. They won't hold true to one of these boxes.

[edit] When Failed


Try to picture how the boxes look unfolded.

[edit] When Completed

Good thinking!

If you break down boxes A, B, and C, you can see that they all share the same arrangement of decorations.

However, when you break down box D, you can see that its faces are arranged in a slightly different manner, and might look something like the above diagram. However, you can't know for sure, because the other three faces of box D are unknown.

[edit] Solution


Box D is different.

[edit] Progress

3375 Picarats and 165 Hint Coins.
