Five-Card Shuffle is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

The key to this puzzle is knowing where to look. The detail that distinguishes the one picture from the rest has something to do with the cards, that much is for sure. It's not the number of cards, though, because each picture has five cards.

Each card is marked with one of four suits, and each set of cards is oriented in a different direction. Try to track the relative shift in movement for every card in the picture.

Still stuck, huh?

Here's a big hint. Look at how the cards are stacked on top of each other. Pay special attention to how each card overlaps with the middle card for your answer.

Good job!

This puzzle is fairly straightforward, but catching the subtle difference in the picture can take a while.
