Review: Wow, that was 267 pieces of terror! Do you like pulling your hair out while cursing your puzzles? If so this one is for you!! We like an occasional really hard puzzle to make our brains work and boy did this fit the bill. Luckily it's pretty easy to tell if a piece belongs, otherwise this one would be a nightmare. I loved the multi-piece whimsey on the back. Not going to spoil it, you'll have to get one for yourself to try.

Review: Gorgeous and rewarding puzzle. We have several artifact puzzles and this is one of the best. What fun to discover a large dragon visible after completion.

Review: This puzzle is a total delight! It is not so hard as described, but is just enough of a challenge to be fun. I love the split tendril connectors. These aren't as hard as Crystal Grove (another fave). I got this in a Hoefnagel Club pack along with a really challenging puzzle. I had to do this one twice to make up for the hard work on the other one, LOL!
