Artifact Puzzles - Allen Douglas The Kraken Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 45.00

This challenging 217 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of a sea monster is titled "The Kraken" by Allen Douglas. This puzzle is very hard despite having only 217 pieces, because the edge is irregular (no straight edge pieces), and the pieces are pretty crazy. This puzzle was designed by Tara Flannery, and includes many ocean whimsy pieces. All our puzzles are laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood, and made in USA. This puzzle is packaged in a small cardboard box with a magnetic clasp.

    Review: This is an awesome puzzle. The description rates it as "very hard" and while it is a challenge, other Artifact puzzles I have done were more difficult in my opinion. My 14 yr old son and I had a very enjoyable 90 mins doing this puzzle. There are several edges/line that you can do first and then fill in the gaps later. The penguins on the Kraken's back also helped. I like that the theme was a bit different. And being a fan of Ray Harryhausen films, the Kraken was a perfect subject. Quality as always with Artifact Puzzles was excellent and I highly recommend this puzzle.

    Review: I'm giving this only 3 stars because this puzzle was too hard for my daughter - when we got it she was 8, I put it away and will pull it out to try again when she is a bit older and ready for more challenge, but I'm not sure quite when to try again because it honestly looks too hard for me too, and I'm as grown-up as I am going to get! The pieces are a gorgeous blue, but they are all blue! There's no straight edge to get you started, and there are some whimsy pieces, but they didn't help us get started either.

    Review: Part of the challenge here is the uneven edge, which leaves you uncertain about which pieces are edge pieces and which have actual connections to other pieces. The shark-themed whimsies swimming in the water add an extra grace note.
