This is the sixty-eighth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Madame Lapushka. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which day each shopkeeper take as their day off.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    First, think about who can choose Saturday as their day off.

    According to the chart, the only possibilities are Mr. A or Ms. C. For now, let's put Ms. C down for Saturday.

    But wait! Ms. C's day off has to be the day before Mr. A's, which means Mr. A's day off would have to be Sunday. As a result, the only one who can choose Saturday is Mr. A.

Hint Two
    The first hint established that Mr. A has to take Saturday off.

    Ms. C wants her day off to be the one before Mr. A's. That means her day off will have to be Friday.

    In a similar fashion, you should be able to start eliminating certain possibilities one by one for the remaining five shopkeepers.

Hint Three
    Mr. A has to take Saturday as his day off, which means Ms. C must take Friday.

    Mr. B wants to take either Tuesday or Friday. But since Friday is already taken, it has to be Tuesday. That means Mr. G has to take Sunday, since his only other option is Tuesday.

    Can you rule out any other possibilities in this same way?

Super Hint
    As of Hint 3, we know the following: Mr. A takes Saturday off, Mr. B takes Tuesday, Ms. C takes Friday, and Mr. G takes Sunday. The next one we can determine is Mr. D. He's happy with Monday, Friday, or Sunday, but of those, only Monday will work.

    Next up, Dr. F picked Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. The only remaining choice is Wednesday. Now just finish off this process of elimination, and you're done!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

If your plans go awry, the shopkeepers won't be able to have the days off that they want!

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

They arranged their days off as follows:

Mr. A on Saturday, Mr. B on Tuesday, Ms. C on Friday, Mr. D on Monday, Ms. E on Thursday, Dr. F on Wednesday, and Mr. G on Sunday.

Once you realize that Mr. A's day off must be Saturday, the rest just slot into place one by one!

[edit] Solution
