This is the one hundred and twenty third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Fisheye. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the maximum number of cat's-eye stones that can be placed on the field without forming a square or rectangle with them.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    At first, just try placing stones while following the rule until you can't place any more. If you repeat this process over and over, the answer should start to reveal itself.

Hint Two
    It's probably obvious, but the answer isn't 16. What about 15 or 14? Nope. You can cross those off your list too.

Hint Three
    The answer is a multiple of three.

Super Hint
    The answer is not a two-digit number. You're so close now. You can do it!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It should go without saying, but the answer is fewer than 16.

[edit] When Completed


No matter how you arrange the stones, the most you can place without breaking the rule is nine. The diagram above shows just one example. The difficult part is having confidence that you've found the correct answer!

[edit] Solution


The maximum number of stones that can be placed is nine.

[edit] Progress

4650 Picarats and 290 Hint Coins.
