This is the seventy-first puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mayor Billson. In order to solve this puzzle, you must evenly divide the pawns to make sure at least one black and one white are enclosed in areas of the same shape.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The pawns are concentrated on one point of the board, so first consider how you could divide the chessboard into two. Then you can think about how to separate the pawns into equal numbers.

Hint Two
    To divide the board into four sections as described in the puzzle, you'll need to have two sections with one black and two white pawns.

Hint Three
    Draw a line to make a clean cut through the middle, then cut each half in two to make quarters.

    Considering the distribution of the pawns, you'll first want to make a horizontal line through the middle. You can divide the top and bottom halves after that.

Super Hint
    Try drawing a shape that looks a bit like the number 3 on its side. Within just the top half of the board, you can make two 3's slotted into each other.

    Once you get the shape right, you'll have the pawns divvied up perfectly and you'll just need to do the same on the bottom.

Never mind.

There are a number of ways to split the area into four - you just need to find the right one.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

Now we have four sections of equal size and shape!

[edit] Solution


Divide the board as shown.

[edit] Progress
