I will never grow out of Professor Layton games. In fact, I even thought about buying a Nintendo 3DS just so I could play the newest game in the series, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. Instead, I thought I'd dream up a quiet, grown-up gaming room inspired by this puzzling game.

If you aren't familiar with the Layton series, the Professor and his companion, Luke, set out to solve mysteries while you, as the player, help them work out a variety of mind games that help to unlock new clues. Layton and Luke are British, so there's plenty of stopping for tea and riding on trains, too.

As a handheld gamer, there's really nothing better than a quiet corner in my office with a cup of tea for a long-puzzling session. In the third game of the series, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, there's a lot of clocks and the trickery of time moving forward, so this quiet gaming spot captures many of those ideas. If you aren't familiar with the game, I can't recommend it enough.
