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? We believe the best jigsaw puzzles have three vital qualities. First, lots of color. Next, oodles of details. No boring expanses of sky or snow. Last, a good puzzle is puzzling—a little mysterious and full of false clues, duplicates, and distractions. Calamityware puzzles are designed to give you abundant colors, beguiling details, and mild mystery.
How difficult is this puzzle? Challenging, but not so exasperating that you will have to be institutionalized. We included an overview of the whole image on a cheat sheet and box base, so you and a friend can both have a reference while working on the puzzle. If you believe the puzzle is too easy, try solving it without referring to the cheat sheet. If it is still too easy, do it blindfolded.
Where are these puzzles made? These puzzles will be made at Sarah's XZY puzzle workshop in China. (We know that sounds like a made-up name, but it’s real.) Printed on specially made, heavy puzzle board to prevent delaminating and reduce paper dust. Housed in a sturdy clear poly bag and nestled in a robust two-piece box. Includes a half-scale print of the finished puzzle.
