This is the eighty-seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Ray. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the cards so that each column, row, and diagonal contain four different suits.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's start by seeing if we can't dig up a few hints to work from.

    There's a card on the table that belongs to the row the heart is in, the column the club is in, and the diagonal line the diamond is in. Therefore, you can safely conclude that this card in question must be a spade. This is the kind of logic you'll need to use to solve the problem.

Hint Two
    What card do suppose belongs in the bottom-left corner? The column this space is a part of already has a diamond and heart in it, and there's a spade to the immediate right of it. Taking the above into consideration, we can conclude the card in question must be a club. Knowing this, we can also fill in the last card in the leftmost column, which has to be a spade.

Hint Three
    Need another hint, do you? OK then, here's a good one. The card at the top-right corner is a spade, and the one at the bottom of that same column is a heart.

    The rest of the solution is up to you, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
