This is the ninety-seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the rightmost tree leaves. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the blocks so that each row and column contains three stars.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You need to find a foothold to get started, and the stars that are locked in place should do nicely. Remember, if two stars are locked into a row, you can only place one more there.

Hint Two
    The topmost row of blocks contains two blocks locked into place. Within this row of blocks are two rows of stars. The top row has two stars locked in place, and the bottom row has one. Therefore, the one block you can place in this row must have one star in its top row and two in its bottom row.

Hint Three
    Let's take a look at the leftmost column of blocks, which also has two blocks locked in place. The left column of stars contained here has only one star locked in place, as does the right column. So the block you can move in this row must have two stars in both its left and right rows.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

There's at least one row or column in your solution that doesn't have three stars.

[edit] When Completed


The constellation is a bit...abstract, but oh well.

3655 Picarats and 193 Hint Coins.
