[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try using the Memo function to draw some of these shapes yourself. Doing so might give you a hint about how they're constructed.

Hint Two
    Have you noticed yet that all of the shapes are made out of numbers? Now think about the relationship between each shape and the number used to create it.

Hint Three
    The shape in the top-left corner is made up of three threes...

    The one in the bottom-right corner is made up of four fours...

    That's it! Each shape is made from an amount of numbers equal to the number used to create it.

Super Hint
    One of the shapes is made from a number that can be two different numbers depending on which end is facing up.

    However, if you count how many of this number are used to create the shape, it's wrong either way.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

All five shapes are pretty weird looking, but they're not without meaning.

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

The other shapes are made up of three threes, four fours, five fives, and seven sevens, respectively.

The oddball is neither six sixes nor nine nines.

[edit] Solution

The shape in the bottom-left corner is the odd one out.

[edit] Progress

1995 Picarats and 168 Hint Coins.
