King Arthur's Sword is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.

Puzzle

This artistic young girl wants to make a stained-glass picture based on the legend of King Arthur by sticking bits of colored sheets to the atrium window.

The sheets used for the sword are going to be yellow, but she wants to design the rest so that none of the other parts are the same color as any adjacent part.

What is the minimum number of differently colored sheets she will need, including the yellow sheet for the sword parts?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Use the Memo Function to try filling in the colors yourself. Use as few colors as you can.

The answer is four colors!

Except that's not quite right. There's a way to go even lower than that.

The puzzle only said you can't have the same colors adjacent to each other.

It didn't say you have to completely cover the window with colored sheets.

You can make good use of the bare glass.

By including the transparent glass as one of your colors, you can reduce the number of differently colored sheets you'll need by one.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad.

Don't be dazzled by the magnificence of that sword!

Correct

Correct!

While you need four colors to avoid having any parts with the same color adjacent to each other, you only need to use three differently colored sheets and have the bare parts of the window be the fourth color.
