This is the seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Chester. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine where Mrs. Hadley is sitting using the clues.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The mustachioed Mr. O'Connor is b. Seeing how both c and f are men, his wife has to be a.

Hint Two
    The Joneses are both sitting by the aisle, which means they must be sitting across from each other. Since you know b is Mr. O'Connor, c and g must be Mr. and Mrs. Jones, right?

Hint Three
    So, where is Mr. Lambert in all this? We now know a and b to be the O'Connors, so the people sitting across from them must also be couple. But they can't be the Lamberts because the Lamberts have to be sitting across from each other... Keep the above in mind, and you should have everything you need to identify all four of the couples.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about the clues you've been given and try again.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Since the mustachioed Mr. O'Conner is sitting beside his wife, both couples on the left must be sitting beside their spouses. Since Mr. Lambert is sitting across from his wife, he must be sitting at the right table. The Jonses are sitting next to the aisle, so they must be c and g. With everyone else identified, you only have the Hadleys to deal with. They are represented by e and f.

[edit] Solution

Person e is Mrs. Hadley.

[edit] Progress

175 Picarats and 26 Hint Coins.
