This is the eighty-sixth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk interact with the dealer behind the table to the right. In order to solve this puzzle, you must rotate the least cards possible to create an even score for both players.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can start by eliminating any cards with values that don't change when rotated. There are a few of those.

Hint Two
    The cards whose values don't change when they're rotated are 1, 2, 5, 8, and 0.

    You should be focusing on the remaining cards: 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9.

Hint Three
    You only need to rotate one card.

    Which could it be?

Super Hint
    The dealer's current total score is 45. Yours is 31. The number in the middle of those scores is 38. Is there a card you can rotate to make both of your scores equal 38?

    What do you need to add to 31 to get 38?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

There's no need for any tricky calculations here.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

1, 2, 5, 8, and 0 are worth the same either way. Out of the remaining cards, which are 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9, you just need to rotate the 7 to give yourself seven more points and take seven away from the dealer, making it a draw.

[edit] Solution

Rotate the 7 card.

[edit] Progress

2925 Picarats and 175 Hint Coins.
