Puzzles, Why?

Puzzles.  Yuck.

Unless you like to torture yourself with mindless hours of finding pieces that will or will not fit together to make a cutesy picture of a cat in a garden of purple flowers.

Okay, maybe you are strange and love puzzles (oh gawd, why??)  Maybe you can’t decide between the picture of the puppies in the wagon or the unicorn jumping over the pot of gold.  Or maybe traditional puzzles are just too easy for you and you are looking for something more challenging.

Like having no image at all. impossible puzzle

I can think of nothing more boring that putting together a puzzle that has no picture at all.  Well, I guess one user said that if you look closely the image is of polar bears eating marshmallows in the snow.  Perhaps it has one of those crazy secrete images like those Magic Eye pictures from the early 90s.  You know, the ones that were all kinds of rainbow psychedelic, but if you crossed and squinted your eyes just right a 3D image would pop out.  But you couldn’t ever see them because you didn’t have the squint/cross-eyed technique down.  So you would look at the back of the book to see the “answers” and then act like you could see it anyway instead of risking the shame of being inferior to your friends who could actually see them.

According to Joseph Dewey, an Amazon Top 500 Reviewer (Go Joey), here are the pros and cons:


-Shiny Metallic Surface

-Looks really cool

-High, Ravensburger quality (apparently Ravensburg, Germany makes fine puzzles or something like that).


-No picture (um, duh).

-Very hard.  (I am assuming he means the difficulty level and not the material).

-Guide doesn’t have the correct shape for the tabs of the pieces, just the shape of the pieces.  (I don’t have a clue what that means.  Must be some kind of puzzle speak that I am not aware of).

There you go.  If you are looking for a puzzle to challenge you until it is no longer relaxing, but you want to throw its shiny metallic pieces down the toilet, I am guessing this is the one.
