### How do you finish square squzzle puzzle

Here are some papers, code and blog posts (this is nice one too) on how to algorithmically search for solutions to squzzles/scramble square puzzles. You might have received one of these puzzles as a holiday gift over the last few years, they were quite popular.
C and Perl Implemenations
General Backtracking Approach
The algorithm is straightforward - just one that searches through solutions.
What's interesting is that I've seen people solve these puzzles, even brand new ones (no prior knowledge), very quickly. There's something that happens with a persons vision or something that's helping them not have to exhaustively search the full solution space. If I'd seen someone do this once or twice, I'd think it was just lucky picks. (these puzzles have enormous solution spaces (4^8 x 9! = 23,781,703,680 puzzle configurations) )
Is there something in this puzzle that "hints" to a human early in the solution testing that a solution is viable or not. That is, after 1 or 2 pieces placed, can the human see a promising solution "faster" than the basic algorithm that searches quickly through all piece placements and orientations. If so, what is that data ("hint") the human sees and how can we factor it into the algorithm?
Possible hint data:
Rules of thumb on how all these puzzles are printed and cut (do the puzzles all get made with same orientations so exposure to one puzzle provides data on other puzzles?)
Humans can see the whole pattern in parallel even when pieces aren't lined up so they don't have to check each piece systematically
Are combinations of pieces eliminated as the humans solve it thus taking them out of future solution attempts, reducing solution space the more the human works on the puzzle.

Thank You

### I solved all puzzles but did not get all furniture and painting scraps. How do I get them now? I tried going back to resolve but doesn't help.

If you've solved all the puzzles within the story then you'll have all the furniture and all the scraps

As there are more places to put furniture than furniture, some players mistakenly think that they're missing some items

Look down the right side of this walkthrough and you'll see Room indexes showing which item goes in which room
http://professorlaytonwalkthrough.blogspot.com/

Further, if you are missing any of the items listed, just click on the item in the walkthrough's index and it will show you where to find them

You can see a picture of the completed rooms here
http://professorlaytonwalkthrough.blogspot.com/2008/02/puzzle105.html

Similarly, if you've solved all the puzzles within the story then you'll also have all the painting scraps

Some players move the scraps around and end up hiding a scrap under another (so think they don't have all the scraps when they actually have)

You can see an illustrated step by step guide to repairing the painting here
http://professorlaytonwalkthrough.blogspot.com/2008/02/puzzle104.html

This should help you confirm whether or not you have any missing scraps

If you are missing scraps then the Painting Scraps index down the right side of the walkthrough will show you where to find them

Another common problem is players thinking that they've solved all the puzzles when they actually haven't (usually by incorrectly assuming that if the last puzzle number in the game's puzzle index is the last puzzle, then all the puzzles must have been found and solved)

The top screen of the trunk will show you exactly how many puzzles have been both found and solved

There are 120 puzzles within the story itself and, at best, you would've unlocked two of the bonus houses (for a maximum of 126 puzzles)

If the number of puzzles solved (as shown in the top screen of the trunk) is less than you expect there to be, then you have to very carefully look through the game's puzzle index to find any missing puzzle numbers

Nothing (besides some hint coins and conversations) can be permanently missed and either you're not missing what you think you're missing or you haven't solved all 120 puzzles within the story

### I'm at the end of the game and realize I did not click on the park gate sign to allow me to go back and open puzzle 120. Is there another way to unlock my last puzzle so I can have the last 3 bonus...

If Puzzle 120 is the one you're missing, this isn't in the park (which remains open once you've opened it)

You can see where it is here
http://professorlaytonwalkthrough.blogspot.com/2008/02/puzzle120.html

If this isn't the one you're missing, then you have to carefully look through the puzzle book in the game to find the missing puzzle number

No puzzles can be missed and you can go back and get any puzzle after completing the story (these will either be in the shack or still in their original locations)

### Puzzle Master's House won't open

You haven't solved all 132 puzzles

The game tells you (both in the trunk and in the save slot) how many puzzles you've both found and solved

Players who think they've solved all 132 puzzles usually just look in the game's puzzle list, see that the last puzzle there is 132 and mistakenly assume that they must have solved all 132 puzzles

The puzzle list only shows those puzzles that have already been found, not every puzzle

Unless the found/solved count shows 132/132, then the last puzzle house will not open

If the game says, for example, that you've only solved 131 puzzles, then you have to very carefully look through the list to find the missing puzzle number ... if you don't find it, look again (some players have had to look through the list multiple times before spotting it)

Once you have the missing puzzle number, check this walkthrough to quickly find where the puzzle is (if it's not in Granny's shack)
http://professorlaytonwalkthrough.blogspot.com/

There's a puzzle index down the right side of the walkthrough you can click on

On a side note, this walkthrough can also be used for more puzzle solving fun, by looking at those puzzles that are specific to the other version (US/UK) of the game (there's over 180 puzzles between the versions)

### Finding all 120 hidden puzzles...

When the game says that you've solved 131 puzzles, then you've solved 131 puzzles

Players forget that the puzzle index only shows the puzzles that have been found ... just because the last puzzle in the list says 132 doesn't mean that there's 132 puzzles in the list

You have to carefully look through the list to find the missing puzzle number ... if you don't find it look again (some players have had to look through the list multiple times before spotting it)

Once you have the missing puzzle number, check this walkthrough to quickly find where the puzzle is (if it's not in Granny's shack)
