The Mailbox Panels is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. For the puzzle in the European version of the game, go here.


When you opened the mailbox, all of the side panels fell off!

These panels spelled the word "POST," but you're not sure how they exactly fit together to do so.

Arrange the panels so the mailbox looks as it did before the panels fell off.

The panels don't necessarily make up the letters on their own.

In fact, if you try thinking about what the panels aren't making...
you're almost there.

The panels don't come together to make letters--they actually form the borders around the letters.

It helps quite a bit if you figure out the corner pieces first!

If you're still confused about how everything fits together, look at the colors of the individual tiles.

Continue the pattern of alternating colors to match up the panels!

If you look at how the panels are shaped, you can see where the letters "POST" were written.

You can also take the rectangular panels in the top and the bottom rows and arrange them so you create a pattern of alternating colors.




The panels were arranged to create negative spaces on the mailbox that made up the letters of the word "POST"!
