If you’re looking for a completely new experience with your jigsaw puzzling, PlayBox Infinipuzzles are the way to go. These puzzles have a unique twist that gives you the freedom of composing and shaping the puzzle to your liking by rearranging the pieces. Build it one way, then another. By moving the pieces from one side of the puzzle to the opposite side, the picture becomes brand new!
If that sounds confusing, it’s probably because you’ve never imagined a puzzle like this. Luckily, PlayBox thought to give you an example video to demonstrate–or check out the photos below of these innovative creations!
Central Park Starry Night can be arranged traditionally, in a rectangular shape. Or it can be arranged in a Z-shape, as an arrow, or even rhombus! There are several possibilities. Choose which one suits your mood best!
These puzzles may be on the lower end of the piece count, but they allow you to be more flexible and creative in your puzzling, meaning they’re great for any level skill level puzzler who wants to try something different!
Phil the Groundhog may have predicted another 6 weeks of winter for us Americans, but that’s not stopping us from looking forward to spring. With new puzzles of birds, we can hold you over until you see your flying friends returning from their jaunt south for the winter. From peacocks to owls to eagles (with everything in between), we’ve got your covered until you see those hummingbirds and bluejays back at your backyard bird feeders.
If the first jigsaw puzzle you see from Piatnik’s new Skyline series is New York, you night not be so intimidated. Skylines are a popular theme for travel jigsaw puzzles, and this one fits in nicely and shows just how much variety there is in building size in the Big Apple.
But the rest of the Skyview series is tough. Vienna, Paris, and Venice are long distance aerial views with teeny, tiny details. Paris and Vienna are even made up of the same color scheme! These puzzles would be a great challenge and are very unique compared to other skyline travel puzzles.
It reminded me of a great artist, Steven Wiltshire, who has been called the Human Camera. He can take a helicopter ride over a city’s skyline and then reproduce the image–by memory–perfectly, down to the smallest details. With no preliminary sketches or preparation minus the helicopter ride, he can proportion the city exactly and remember every building’s relation to other buildings and landmarks. Check out the video proof. It’s stunning and amazing.
So, for the ultimate challenge, channel Wiltshire, and try these extra tough puzzles by studying the image on the box, then refusing to use it as reference for the rest of your puzzling!
