This is the fifteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. This puzzle will be accessed automatically while listening to Mr. Collins' class. In order to solve this puzzle, you must reconstruct the fossil by moving three pieces at a time.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can put this fossil back together in just four moves. If you get it wrong, it'll make things harder for you, so be careful when moving pieces.

Hint Two
    You can move only three pieces at a time. This is actually to your advantage, as it reduces the number of possible parts you can move.

    Remember, you want to move the pieces in order to have the complete fossil in the middle nine squares of the grid.

Hint Three
    Here's some more hands-on advice: first, move the three pieces in the second column from the left down one row.

    What should your next move be? Remember, you want the result to be in the middle nine squares.

Super Hint
    Continuing on from Hint 3, move the three pieces in the center column up one row. Next, move the three pieces in the second row from the bottom over to the right one column.

    Can you work out the last move?
