Tricolor Cube (Three-Coloured Cube in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter.


US Version

The toy cube below has three different-colored sides, each marked with a unique symbol. The opposite side of each one is an exact match, both in color and symbol.

This cube can be taken apart into pieces and put back together. However, not all of the pieces shown are part of the cube.

Can you figure out which pieces make up the cube? Tap each correct piece, A-E, and then tap Submit.

UK Version

A toy cube is painted in three colours. Each face has the same colour and symbol as the face on the opposite side.

The cube is made up of some of the pieces below, but some additional pieces have been mixed in.

Can you tell which pieces are needed? Touch each of the correct pieces to circle it.

US Version

You only need three pieces to build the cube. Don't forget about the symbols in addition to the colors.

UK Version

You can make this cube from three of the parts shown.

Remember to pay attention to the symbols too.

US Version

Don't forget that the side opposite the yellow one with an X is also yellow with an X. The same goes for the sides with the circle and the square.

UK Version

Remember that on the opposite side of the yellow face with an X on it, there is another yellow face with an X on it. The same applies to the circle and square faces as well. It's easy to lose track, so take your time and pay close attention.

US Version

Piece A is necessary to build the cube.

With that in mind, take a look at what other pieces would work with A.

UK Version

You definitely need piece A. Now think about what other parts might work with it.

US Version

In addition to piece A, you also need to use piece E. After these two, there's just one more piece you'll need.

You should be able to figure it out in no time from here.

UK Version

In addition to piece A, you'll also need to use piece E. Now there's just one more piece to identify.

Can you work it out now?



US Version

Too bad!

Try visualizing how each piece would look from every angle.

UK Version

Too bad.

Try to imagine how each piece would look from different angles.



US Version

You can build the cube using pieces A, C, and E. What a neat little toy!

UK Version
