A Ghostly Puzzle is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.


Yikes! There's a ghost in the forest!

...Or so you thought, until you realized that the specter hovering in front of you was just a figure cut out of wood hanging from a branch. Looking around the area, you notice four pieces of wood scattered in the grass. Which one of these wooden slabs was the ghost cut out from?

You have four choices: A, B, C, or D. Beware! The correct board may have flipped over while lying in the grass.

Think you've found the answer? You're sure? Well, just to be safe, compare its outline to the ghosts one more time. Don't forget to look at little details, like the shape of its hands.

You should pay extra attention to the length of the ghost's tail.

Make note of which way the ghost's arms should be facing! just so you know, the board you're looking for needs to flip over to match the outline of the ghost.



Too bad!

All the boards might look the same at first, but if you look carefully, you'll start to see the differences.

Don't forget to consider the outline each board makes when flipped over, too.


Good eye!

The ghost was cut from board B. The board must have flipped over as it fell to the ground. All the other boards have slight differences that set them apart from the correct one.
