Around the Towns is a puzzle in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village.


A salesman is planning his route around 16 towns using his map. Starting from S, he wants to visit every town and up back at S.

Assuming he has decided to go to town 1 first, and that he will only visit each town once to save on fuel, what number will the town marked with a star be in the sequence?

By the way, roads marked with an X are closed.

There is only one route around the map that will fulfill the conditions of the puzzle. Each town requires one road to enter by, and another to exit by. Bearing that in mind, try finding a route leading back out of town S, then joining those routes in the middle.



That's right!

This is the only route that allows the salesman to visit each town once only.
