This is the thirty-eighth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Puck. In order to solve this puzzle, you must move the pieces to create a pattern sharing a common feature with the other patterns.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    At first glance, the five patterns don't seem to have any relation to each other whatsoever. Try to ignore the fact that they are made of L-shaped pieces, and consider each pattern as a whole.

Hint Two
    Each pattern looks very flat, but like origami, they should be properly expressed on a three-dimensional plane.

    What would you get if you put the two L shapes together and folded along each square segment?

Hint Three
    Each of these patterns is a net that can be used to make a six-sided cube.

    Excluding mirrored or rotated patterns, there are only six possible ways to form a cube using the two L shapes. You've already seen five, so this last one is up to you.

Super Hint
    Here's your final hint:

    Arrange the L shapes to make a staircase pattern that has two squares of paper in each row. How does that look?

[edit] When Failed

You cannot fail this puzzle.

[edit] When Completed


They're all fine examples of an unfolded cube! That's why this pattern would work even if it was mirrored.

[edit] Solution


Arrange the pieces as shown.

[edit] Progress

1180 Picarats and 118 Hint Coins.
