This is the fifty second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Vito. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which sheet must be placed on the bottom to create a checkerboard pattern.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You're not trying to build the entire checkerboard in your head at once, are you? That will only confuse you.

    Try focusing on just one part of the board first.

Hint Two
    Any sheet that doesn't already have a rough checkerboard pattern on it can be excluded as the top sheet.

Hint Three
    A sheet that contains adjacent squares of the same color can't go on top.

Super Hint
    Sheets A and B have adjacent squares of the same color. If you put either of these sheets on top, you won't have a checkerboard. In other words, you know that C goes on top.

    Now that you know this, think about what colors need to fit into the blank squares of sheet C.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think carefully about how the sheets should be layered.

[edit] When Completed

Nicely done!

B goes on the very bottom, and then the other sheets are layered in the order pictured above.

[edit] Solution

Sheet B goes on the bottom.

[edit] Progress

1480 Picarats and 160 Hint Coins.
