This is the one hundred and first puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Niles. In order to solve this puzzle, you must remove all the silver balls from the board except one by jumping them over each other.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Make the first of the balls disappear by jumping the ball in the center of the cross over the ball to its immediate left or right.

Hint Two
    Move the ball at the very bottom into the space formerly occupied by the center ball.

    With just a few balls to go now, you should be able to sail through the rest of this puzzle.

Hint Three
    With puzzle of this type, your first move will often determine whether or not you'll be able to solve the puzzle.
