A Cup of Tiles is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


This two-color mosaic of a coffee cup was made using red and white tiles. You want to make an identical picture, but you only have a set of large tiles that are each 3 x 3 squares.

Can you re-create the picture by layering the tiles you have available? The tiles can overlap as many times as you want.


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

First stick a red tile in the bottom-right corner, and then start making the cup.

Continuing from Hint 1, place a white tile on the right edge, just above the red one but not overlapping with it.

Now place another white tile one square down and to the left of the previous one. These two tiles will form the bottom part of the cup handle.

Place a red tile two squares from the top and one from the right, then place another red tile one square left and down from that.

The shape of the handle should be starting to emerge now.

Next, you'll want to place a white tile one square from the top and one from the right. Now cover the top third of the whole area with three red tiles. Place the last two red tiles in the bottom-left corner and immediately to the right of that.

Finish off the cup by making a large square with the remaining four white tiles.




Give yourself a pat on the back and a nice cup of coffee.
