This is the seventy sixth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Maya. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the minimum number of people that were sitting at the table.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This puzzle isn't too difficult if you use the Memo function to draw a picture of the table and the people around it.

Hint Two
    Neither Guinevere nor Nimue has a woman sitting left, right, or directly across the table from her. Of course, this doesn't mean there's a man in all of these locations, either.

Hint Three
    First, picture a man sitting across from a woman. There are at least two women, so imagine another man and woman sitting across the table. That's four diners. Now place another man between two women and someone across from him. This arrangement fulfills the conditions!

    Draw this image using the Memo function to see for yourself. But, wait! Is this really the minimum number that will work? There must be a way to do it with less...

Super Hint
    There's no reason any of the diners need to have someone sitting directly across from them.

    The answer is an odd number.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Did you try using the Memo Function to draw a diagram of the table and the people round it?

If you did, perhaps you overlooked something important.

[edit] When Completed

A noble answer!

Five people is correct.

The image above shows how they would be seated around the Round Table.

The tricky part is realizing that no one is sitting directly across from any of the diners.

If you're interested in the characters mentioned in this puzzle, be sure to read up on the legend of King Arthur!
