Pesky Patterns is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy.


The owner of this gift shop has had such a busy day, he's run out of decorative gift boxes. However, he spots some leftover red card and decides to make some more from that.

Using these coloured cube nets, show how the owner can make eight gift boxes with this single sheet of red card.

The entire sheet of card must be used up, and the nets mustn't overlap.

Start by placing the coloured nets in the bottom corners of the red card. There's one that will slot perfectly into the bottom-right corner. Can you find it?

If you're having trouble, here's a clue: it's purple.

Next, think about which net goes in the bottom-left corner. A quick glance at the available nets should make it obvious that it's the orange one.

Keep working around the edge of the card in this way and you should solve this puzzle without a hitch.

Continuing from the previous hints, the darker of the two green nets slots in between the purple net in the bottom-right corner and the orange net in the bottom left.

The white net goes above the orange one, while the yellow net goes above the purple one.

The pink cross-shaped net goes in the top-right corner, while the lime-green net goes in the top left.

Now you should only have the blue net left. There's just one place it can go!



Well, that's that wrapped up!

That's how you make eight gift boxes from that leftover card. And there aren't even any scraps to clean up at the end either!
