This is the fifty-fifth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Sammy Thunder. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the cheapest method of connecting all the chains together, remembering that it costs $2 to open and close a link.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The number of links in each small chain is a crucial clue that will help you solve the puzzle.

Hint Two
    You haven't been opening only the links on ends of each small chain, have you?

Hint Three
    Try taking one small chain, popping open each of its seven links, and using those individual open links to connect the other smaller chains together.

    Is the answer clearer now?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Give the puzzle another try.

[edit] When Completed


Take one of Sammy's seven-link chains, break each link apart, and use them to connect the remaining small chains together. You can see this method illustrated here.

If Sammy uses this method, he can get the necklace of his dreams for only $14.

[edit] Solution


It will cost $14 to make the necklace.

[edit] Progress

1295 Picarats and 72 Hint Coins.
