Why a jigsaw puzzle? Puzzles are great because you can do them alone or with others. You get to set the pace. You can do the whole puzzle in one marathon session or drag the effort out over weeks. Solving a puzzle sharpens your cognitive skills and helps you learn to focus on details. Snapping a puzzle piece into position feels good and probably releases a flood of endorphins. How nice. And jigsaw puzzles don’t require any batteries, instruction manuals, or wifi.
What makes a puzzle great? I designed the Evil Twins puzzle to give you abundant colors, beguiling details, and mild mystery. It’s loaded with clues to help make solving the puzzle easier. But half of the clues are misleading duplicates. If the puzzle seems easy, try doing it without referring to the cheat sheet. Or fold the cheat sheet in half and only refer to one side.
