[Ripped from my Vox blog
My twin brother 2 years removed, Harrison (or .harr
to some, hehe) is visiting from college for the Zombie-Jesus weekend. Sitting side by side, him with my sister's DS lite and me with my PSP, we began to discuss the variety of hand held games we've been playing over the past few months. Back in the good ol' days, Harrison and I would spend many brain power hours in tandem getting through various puzzle and adventure games on the PC such as The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary
, The Castle of Doctor Brain
, and Legend of Kyrandia: Hand of Fate
. Naturally, our experiences with Professor Layton and the Curious Village
surfaced between our discussions.
Harrison mentioned that he had a chance to try a few puzzles at GameStop, remarking that he had a little bit of trouble on a couple of them. I immediately related as I too had run into a bit of a jam on what seemed to be some of the most simple puzzles. Our subconcious sibling connection was revealed when we both brought up issues with the 10 picarats Strange Hats puzzle. Pathetic, I know.
I present to you the exact Strange Hats puzzle below. If there's one thing I hate, it's being told that I'm stupid by a simple mind puzzle on my DS. If there's another thing I hate, it's finding out my super smart electrical engineering brother had the same problem. Here's your
chance to further convince me of my own stupidity by trying to solve the puzzle yourself!
If you've played the game already you probably already know the answer, but if you haven't have a go... and don't cheat!
