This is the thirty-first puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mayor Lowonida. To complete the puzzle, you must determine the maximum number of cards that could be missing a corner.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try to figure out a way of placing the cards so that the missing areas can't be seen. The missing sections are the same shape as the corners of the cards.

Hint Two
    If you line up the corner of another card over the missing area, it will look like the bottom card is complete without you needing to cover the entire card.

Hint Three
    If you rotate the cards as you place them so that the corners line up, you can use four of them to make a circle.

Super Hint
    Continuing on from hint three...
    If you have four or more cards, all of them can have a missing section and can be placed so this is not visible.

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

You need to work out how to hide the missing sections without putting the cards on top of each other.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

It's possible for all five cards to have missing sections and be placed so that those sections are not visible. You just need to line up the corners of the cards with the missing sections. After placing four cards in a circle, you place the final card with the missing piece lined up at one of the corners.

[edit] Solution

A maximum of five cards may have a missing corner.

[edit] Progress

1170 Picarats and 86 Hint Coins.
