Double Digits (Boards into Numbers in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


US Version

The board below can be cut into two identical shaped pieces that also look like the shape of a number.

You can only make one continuous cut along the dotted lines. And of course, you need to use every part of the board in you answer.

How should the board be cut?

UK Version

The board can be cut in a way that produces two identical number-shaped pieces.

Where do you need to cut the board in order to do this?

You can only cut along the dotted lines.

If there weren't those two squares sticking out, you could cut the board in half vertically and make two wide ones. But that's not what you're looking for.

You're not looking for twos or fives, either. The key is to figure out how to incorporate each of the two squares sticking out into the shape of a number.

You're not looking for sixes or nines either. To make a number with a hole in it, you'd have to a log more squares than you have there.

One shape you're looking for is the number right-side up. The other one is the number upside down.

It's not two threes.



Too bad!

Look carefully at the board, and think of what numbers you can create.


US Version


As shown in the image above, you can cut the board into two pieces that look just like fours.

UK Version

A cut above!

You can create two pieces shaped like the number 4. Cutting the board as shown above is one way of doing this.
