This is the eighty first puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to the Barkeep. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which number needs to be changed so that all dates can be displayed on both dice.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about how you can make each date, starting with the first of the month.

Hint Two
    The way things look at the moment, the seventh, eighth, and ninth of the month cannot be displayed.

    For example, it's impossible to display "07" for the seventh day of the month because there's no zero to pair with the seven.

Hint Three
    Have you considered flipping any of the numbers upside down to help you create all of the days?

Super Hint
    To display 07, you need to change one of the numbers on the right-hand die's layout to a zero. You need most of those numbers, but there's one you can spare if you flip the nine on the left-hand die upside down.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Look at each of the numbers very carefully and you'll find the answer.

[edit] When Completed

Nice!

The six needs to be changed.

The current design won't allow the dice to display the numbers 07 or 08. But if you change the six to a zero, you can flip the nine upside down to use it as a six and display all the dates!

[edit] Solution

The six on the right-hand die must be changed.

[edit] Progress

2660 Picarats and 214 Hint Coins.
