Review: What? Speed puzzlers Aga and Julia managed this in 29 min and 38 seconds! What? Okay, I wasn’t referencing the image but still, there was a moment when I wondered if I wouldn’t need a second session to finish up! Momentum did pick up after an early struggle and in the end I managed it in just one lazy afternoon. Whew! Thank goodness for the wonderful whimsies that pair so well with the image. The awesome connectors sure helped also (except for those fiendish non-unique ones). This treat of a time machine whisked me back to the twenties and deposited me directly into the scene. I liked it a lot.
