New Puzzle Design Kickstarter

If you’re looking for a completely new puzzle experience, consider backing Mike and Tina’s Kickstarter. These circular puzzles are created using a deck of 52 cards. Place the cards in the right order in the circular holder, and your finished image will appear. It comes packed with hints to help you along, or the Math Challenge Deck for kids offers the added challenge of equations Ion the reverse side. If the equations are solved correctly, it will help the puzzler place the cards in the correct order.

Extra advantages to this new, innovative type of puzzling is that it’s easily portable and lightweight, as well as simple to keep track of your “pieces” in a car or plane. Some decks can be turned into regular playing card decks after use; others have images on each side for twice the fun.

Kickstarter is a new way for artists of all kinds to get funding for their projects. With Mike and Tina’s project, you can pledge as low as $1 to help them get their product to the market. If you pledge $15 or more, you could win special prizes for supporting them, such as souvenir puzzle cards or one of their first edition products. Watch their videos on their page to see how much fun their customers have had putting together their puzzles!

As of December 6, there are 2 weeks left to help them raise their goal of $100,000. So far 46 people have helped them raise a total of almost $6,200!

Holiday Gift Guide & Shipping Schedule

The month of December is perhaps one of the busiest puzzling months of the year.

A puzzle also makes the perfect gift for the holidays. There are so many different types of puzzles out there, making it easy to find the perfect difficulty level or theme for anyone.

Besides shopping for puzzles by the number of pieces it has, or by the image itself, it’s also important to consider the age recommendation, the brand, and the cost.

Jigsaw Puzzles for Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

At Puzzle Warehouse, we’ve long advocated the use of jigsaw puzzles as a way to spend time with family members and friends affected by dementia. Not only do puzzles stimulate cognitive thinking and memory thought processes, but they are a relaxing way to start a conversation or simply enjoy time together with a loved one.

On October 31st, the White House released a statement discussing Alzheimer’s and how it affects millions of Americans every day.

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible and progressive brain disease that slowly erodes precious memories, thinking skills, and the ability to perform simple tasks. It affects millions of Americans, including senior citizens as well as younger Americans with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. This month, we stand with everyone confronting the painful reality of an Alzheimer’s diagnosis; lend our support to the families who care for them; and renew our commitment to delaying, preventing, and ultimately curing this disease.”

-Barack Obama’s Presidential Proclamation declaring November the official Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month.

In honor of the theme, we’ve compiled some of the best large piece jigsaw puzzles that are great for aging hands and eyes. Several of the puzzles featured here are actually part of the Puzzles to Remember and Puzzle With Me catalogs, both specifically designed for those with Alzheimer’s.
