This is the one hundred and seventeenth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Shackwell. After completing this puzzle, you will receive the Spindly Spires level for the Fish mini-game. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which tokens each buyer is holding.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Take a look at each row and column carefully. Is there one that has a total that could only be reached if all four buyers have the same token?

Hint Two
    Focus you attention on column C.

    The total for the four tokens in column C is 200,000. The only way this number can be reached is if all four buyers have a heard token worth 5,000 each.

    Make each token in column C a heart and see if that helps you figure out the rest of the puzzle.

Hint Three
    Now take a look at G.

    The total for the our tokens in this row is 35,000, and you already know which token I this row must be a heart from the previous hint.

    Since the heart is 5,000, the other three need to equal 30,000, which means the other tokens this row must be a club!

Super Hint
    Let's focus on diamond tokens now.

    There are two diamond tokens in each of the following: column D, row E, column A, and row F, and no diamond tokens anywhere else.

    Knowing this, the rest should be a walk in the park!

Too bad!

You must have made a miscalculation somewhere. Check your work and give it another try.

[edit] When Completed


Once you figure out that column C has to be four heart tokens, the puzzle becomes a lot easier to solve.

Input the tokens as shown.
