Too Many Queens 3 is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Puzzle

In chess, the queen can move the full length of the board diagonally, vertically, and horizontally.

Let's try something a little different this time. See if you can arrange three queens on this 5x5 chessboard so that no more pieces can be placed on the board. Make sure you place the pieces so that no queen blocks another's line of movement.

This one's a bit of a puzzler, but if you check everything thoroughly, you'll find the answer sooner or later.

Don't put anything in the center square.

Remember that you have to arrange the pieces so that no queen blocks another's line of movement. Even if you think you've got the answer, if one of your queens turns red, it means that you haven't got the placement just right yet.

One of your three queens needs to go in a corner space.

Two of your queens need to be placed within the eight squares that directly surround the center space.


Solution

Correct

Good job!

Some people probably stumbled across the answer to this puzzle while they were working through the 5x5 chess problem.
