This is the twenty-third puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Roland. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which man is Mr. Blue.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Only Mr. Brown is lying. Since he is one of the three people the caddy spoke to, you can start by supposing one of A, B or C is Mr. Brown. Then look at how that works with the others' statements and how that statement being false affects everything else.

Hint Two
    Let's say that A is Mr. Brown. That would make his statement false and B's statement true, so B is neither Mr. Black nor Mr. Blue. C's statement must also be true, meaning that D is Mr. White.

    However, that leaves Mr. Brown as the only possibility for B's identity, and you already started on the assumption that A was Mr. Brown, so this scenario is impossible.

Hint Three
    Let's move on to B and assume he is Mr. Brown. It doesn't take long to see that this isn't possible, as B's statement "I'm not Mr. Blue!" cannot be a lie if he is really Mr. Brown.

    So now you know who must be lying.

Super Hint
    We know now that C must be Mr. Brown, whose statement is a lie. A must then be telling the truth when he says that B is Mr. Black. This doesn't contradict D's own statement, either.

    So D must be either Mr. Blue or Mr. White. Since C's statement is a lie, that means D can only be...?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Pay attention to the fact that you already know the name of the person who lied.

[edit] When Completed

Well played!

The lying Mr. Brown is C. Since his statement is false, D must be Mr. Blue.

[edit] Solution

D is Mr. Blue.
