Review: Half life is such a great puzzle that was a blast to build. Great art, great whimsy pieces and a ton of different connections to turn up the difficulty level. Stem cell and the connector pieces are an obvious must have now. I can't wait to have them both connected!

Review: Best puzzle I ever did. Only puzzle I recall doing twice as an adult.

Review: Our daughter loves biology and has a sharp eye for a good puzzle. She has enjoyed revisiting these old friends during the pandemic shutdown. "Half Life" plus "Stem Cell" and the matching connectors is an exceptional solving experience, unique shapes with irregular edge, bright colors, and the fanciful illustrations are recognizable analogs to real cells with special appeal to life scientists. Many whimsy pieces following the cell theme. Connectors are very varied, many not of the typical small Artifact shaped nubs. Well worth getting "Half Life" with the connector set and waiting for "Stem Cell" to come around in availability again, which as a popular, smaller puzzle it seems to pop-up more often. Medium difficulty for an experienced puzzler, but accessible and enjoyable for a novice. Does take some care in handling as it comes out of the box as some of the finely branched pieces are delicate.

Review: Bruce Riley’s Half Life was truly a delight! You don’t have to be a cell biologist to have fun with this one. You’ll smile as you sort the pieces; one wooden gem made me chuckle. The pieces are just the right size and as all Artifact puzzles, you never have to force the fit--they drop right into place. I refuse to look at the picture when my puzzle arrives and enjoy the challenge of assembling little islands until the big puzzle comes together. I’m just a medium puzzler and would say that there were times when I’d think this was relatively easy and other times when I was really puzzled. In fact, when I “finished” the puzzle, I was perplexed to have two “extra” pieces. That little challenge took me a good while, but a time came when I was really finished. A beautiful puzzle that was lots of fun!

Review: Very wild to assemble. The puzzle play was interesting and the shapes were fun. I reccommend it if you are looking for something different.
