This is the one hundred and twenty-ninth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the lowest branch on the left. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which hole the mole should start cleaning from so that he must only go through each tunnel once.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Use the Memo function to trace out potential courses the mole could follow.

Hint Two
    Do you see the little T intersection just above hole F? That's where the mole will end up when he's picked up the very last piece of trash. Find a course that lets him conclude his cleaning at that location.

Hint Three
    Search for a hole that leads to an odd number of separate routes.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

If you start from that hole, the mole has to go through at least one tunnel two or more times.

And he really doesn't feel like doing that.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

Our friend the lazy mole should start his cleaning from hole C. Starting his cleanup effort from any other hole will cause him to run through at least one tunnel twice before the job is finished.

[edit] Solution


The mole must starting cleaning from hole C.

[edit] Progress

1710 Picarats and 118 Hint Coins.
