House of Riddles Solution

There's only one riddle in the House of Riddles, and it's more of a puzzle than a riddle. The left and right room look similar, but reversed, and with subtle differences. Your goal is to make the left and right rooms into mirror images of each other.

The sign at the entrance is a clue, showing two identical lines of text, with the second being reversed.

One possible arrangement for solving the puzzle.

There doesn't seem to be any requirements for how you arrange the two rooms – as long as the two rooms have the same setup, but flipped horizontally, it's not necessary to follow any other rules for what the rooms should look like.

Which Furniture to Arrange

The points which can be arranged in the rooms are:

  1. The pillows on the floor
  2. The 2-drawer chest of drawers
  3. The sliding doors

For the floor pillows, make sure the colors in one room are lined up in the inverse order of the other room – if the left room goes green, green, purple, the right room should go purple, green, green.

For the drawers, pay attention to if the top drawer is open or closed.

For the sliding doors, pay attention to if the door handles are on the inside or the outside.

Once you've set up the two rooms identically, the door in the middle will slide open, revealing a treasure chest!
