One Extra Block is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

US Version

The diagram below shows a structure made of 28 blocks. Of these blocks, 27 form a neat larger cube, and on top of that sits a single block poking out above the rest.

Below this diagram sit those same 28 blocks, but this time the cube has been separated into five chunks. Tap the chunk, A through E, that contains the single block that sat on top of all the others.

Assume that all 5 chunks fit together as shown and can't be rotated from their current orientation.

UK Version

The diagram below shows a structure made of 28 blocks. Of these blocks, 27 form a perfect cube, with the remaining block sitting on top poking out above the rest.

Below this diagram sit those same 28 blocks, but this time the cube has been separated into five chunks. Can you work out which of the chunks, A to E, contains the single block that sat on top of all the others?

Assume that all five chunks fit together as shown and can't be rotated from their current orientation.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

If the top block on chunk D were the block you're searching for, then the block on the bottom-left corner would stick out of the cube. D must not be the correct answer.

Remeber, each chunk is locked in its current orientation and can't be rotated.

If the block you seek was at the top of C, then D would be forced out of the structure when all the chunks were put back together.

Chunk C must not be the answer either.

Chunk D forms a part of the front-left side of the large cube. Use that information to start reconstructing the structure in your head.

As the pieces come together, the answer should become clear.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Imagine combining all the chunks of the structure in your head.

Correct

Good eye!

B contains the 28th block.

US Version

Were you able to visualize all five pieces coming back to form a single structure?

UK Version

Were you able to visualise all five pieces reforming the original structure?
