Solve the Labyrinth Bones Puzzle in Mythology Island

The Minotaur’s Labyrinth in Poptropica Mythology Island is a tricky place, indeed. Looking at the comments posted to my Poptropica Mythology Island Walkthrough video, it looks like a few people are having problems with the bones puzzle that you have to do after meeting the ghost of Pan inside the labyrinth.

The puzzle starts off by simply saying,

Fifteen bones of ancient men,
Take back six but still leave ten.

It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out that fifteen minus six is nine, so taking six bones away from fifteen doesn’t exactly leave you ten. Or does it? Remember, the labyrinth is a sneaky place and heed Pan’s advice that there is more than one way to read the bones.

The answer, of course, is that this is a riddle. You can remove six bones to leave nine bones in place that spell out the word ten. Take a look at the before and after screenshots.

You start with fifteen bones...

There you have it. That minotaur is one sneaky monster.
