This is the seventy-eighth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Juggles. In order to solve this puzzle, you must which box contains a ball.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The empty black and green boxes are the keys to solving this puzzle.

    You need to work out which clown put his or her ball in one of the remaining boxes.

Hint Two
    Both (1) and (2) said they would put their hat into the black box, but the black box is empty. Since there's one of each item in the boxes, that must mean that (3) put her hat in one of the boxes.

Hint Three
    From Hint 2, you can work out that (3) put her hat in the white box.

    Now look at what (1) and (2) said. Where would (2) put his ball if he was going to put it away?

Super Hint
    If (2) had put his ball away, it would be in the green box. However, you know that the green box is empty.

    So who put away a ball and into which box?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Which one could it have been?

[edit] When Completed


It's the yellow box. Since the black box is empty, neither (1) or (2) put their hats into it, which means (3) must have put away her hat in the white box. The green box is also empty, meaning (2) can't have put his ball in it, so he must have put his drum in the red box. That leaves (1), who put her ball in the yellow box.

[edit] Solution

The ball is in the yellow box.

[edit] Progress

2645 Picarats and 164 Hint Coins.
