Some of you like hard puzzles (I myself enjoy a really challenging small puzzle, but am not fond of puzzles that take weeks to finish - too much mess!).
So we spend an inordinate amount of time trying to understand what makes a jigsaw puzzle really really hard:
What are the best piece shapes?
What makes connectors easy or hard?
What's the best kind of image?
Some extreme answers are easy: Konstantin Malevich's Black Square, with identical pieces. But who's idea of a good time is that?
But this weekend we are beta-testing the new Red Towers puzzle (pictured above), and we are shocked - shocked I tell you! at how incredibly hard it is. And very fun.
So, we are still learning new things about what makes a puzzle hard - you'll have to wait another month or so to get your hands on it, and then you can form your own theories :).
