This is the one hundred and thirteenth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Hopper. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the rules given to determine the number on the top face of the top die.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    At the two points where two dice touch, the sum of the two faces making contact equals five. If that's so, then each of these four faces must be a number between one and four.

Hint Two
    The options for the top face of the bottom die are limited. That face can only be a two, three, or four.

Hint Three
    Assume for a minute that the top face of the bottom die is a four. If so, then the bottom face of the middle die must be a one, which would make the top face of this second die a six. Now you've ruled out one possibility, as this can't be the answer.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about the puzzle and try again.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Since you know that the sum of each set of opposing faces is seven, you can easily narrow down the possibilities. With a little smart thinking, as detailed above, you'll soon arrive at the answer: six.

[edit] Solution
