This is the fifty-sixth 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 touch one of the square sections to ensure there are an even amount of black and white squares.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's take this slow and steady. Start by counting the number of white squares and black squares. Then you should think about which section to touch.

Hint Two
    You might be thinking that you'll wind up with the same amounts of white and black no matter which white section you touch. If that's the case, then you're overlooking something big.

    Read the puzzle again, and don't let your first impression blind you.

Hint Three
    The puzzle tells you that the square sections of the board change color when you touch them. Is there a square section that you're overlooking?

Super Hint
    There are 16 small squares on the board split up into black and white. Did you notice the big square shape that frames all the little ones? Try touching that!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Are you sure you've made the board more black than white by only touching one square? Have a closer look.

[edit] When Completed


The large square that makes up the border is a "square" section of the board as well.

[edit] Solution

Touch the white border section.

[edit] Progress

1830 Picarats and 145 Hint Coins.
