This is the sixteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gudrun Weldon. To complete the puzzle, you must determine which road would be quicker to take.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The sign has been there a long time. What it says may not be true of how it is now.

Hint Two
    It seems like one of the roads is always busy. Which way should you go if you want to travel on the quiet road?

Hint Three
    What would happen if everyone who saw this old sign decided to travel on the 'quiet road'?

Super Hint
    If everyone chose to travel on the same road, that road would become very busy. Even if the sign said that the road in question was 'quiet'.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

The sign is old, remember.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

It's impossible to know from the sign what the current state of the road is. If everybody opts for the 'quiet road' then that is the route that ends up being the busy one.

[edit] Solution

The 'busy road' is the optimal route.

[edit] Progress

595 Picarats and 48 Hint Coins.
