This is the thirtieth puzzle you will encounter in the US version of Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the monument. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine where the villagers of Dropstone found themselves on the day after the festivities of the village's founding.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The puzzle asks you to answer with a three-letter word.

    Say...part of the engraving is the three letter word RED. That's not just a coincidence is it?

Hint Two
    Imagine how things would look it you filled the wineglass part of the monument to the brim with water.

Hint Three
    When the wineglass part of the monument is filled with water, the bottom half of the inscription "8-12 RED" is submerged in water, and the top half casts a reflection on the water's surface.

    Can you picture what that would look like?

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about the puzzle and try again.

[edit] When Completed


Filling the wineglass part of the monument with water creates a reflection that transforms the engraving of 8-12 RED to 8-13 BED.

Everyone must have stayed up so late celebrating the new village of Dropstone that they couldn't get up on time the next morning!

[edit] Solution


The villagers were in "BED" the next day.

[edit] Progress

795 Picarats and 59 Hint Coins.
