This is the ninety-eighth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the bottles in front of the counter. In order to solve this puzzle, you must move the jars and cans around two at a time to group items of the same type together.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This puzzle is all about finding the right order in which to make your moves. The more organized players out there should be able to solve this one on instinct alone.

    Since it's a relatively simple puzzle, don't expect to find any more hints. Instead, you'll get some neat trivia on this type of puzzle. So if you're short on hint coins, stay away from Hints Two and Three on this one, OK?

Hint Two
    This is another one of those puzzles that's been around practically forever. Variations on it exist across the globe and have even been said to be played in places like Edo-era Japan.

Hint Three
    In Japan, this puzzle is often presented using pieces from Go, a strategic board game originally from China. In England, the puzzle was often set up using silver and gold coins.
