This is the seventy-second puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mr Browne. In order to solve this puzzle, you must create a checkerboard pattern of those with brown hair and those without by moving two hats.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It goes without saying that you need to split up any lines of people wearing caps and people without caps.

Hint Two
    If you're low on caps, you'll need to find another solution.

    Perhaps there's something you haven't noticed yet?

Hint Three
    Swap a few hats that you haven't tried yet. If you think the puzzle is impossible, maybe the answer has yet to be uncovered.

Super Hint
    Did you take off everyone's cap?

    You should find one person with white hair. This is decidedly not brown. Can you use this person for the checkerboard pattern you need?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Don't give up. Keep trying different swaps and see what you get.

[edit] When Completed


Someone with white hair was hidden among the rest. It was possible to evenly line up those with brown hair and those without after all!

[edit] Solution


Move the hats as shown.

[edit] Progress

2760 Picarats and 264 Hint Coins.
