NO SPOILERS In This Review:
This is my very first Mystery Puzzle. From the description, all I knew was that it was an Oriental Print. I liked the coloring of the sample piece that was posted on the website. I figured, the scene and the serene blueish coloring had to be relaxing, so it would be a fantastic chill-yourself-out puzzle to build during these COVID-19 pandemic times.
I loved how the artwork for the mystery puzzle was hidden in the bottom of the box, underneath the tissue paper along with at little note about where it was located. Its great, because the artwork can be adhered to the blue box when the puzzle is completed, if one wishes.
Many pieces were "fish-shaped". They reminded me of those little goldfish crackers: only blue and purplish...the cool colors on the palette. One had to be very careful to interlock the correct pieces together or some disassembly must occur.
Now, I never like to spoil a surprise...especially a hidden secret surprise. I am a reviewer who does not like to "spill the beans" or in this case "let the fish out of the pond." I prefer to sprinkle a cryptic clue so other puzzlers know there is more to the puzzle than meets the eye.
CRYPTIC CLUE: Look in every direction possible for a
"Big Catch". High or low, left or right, up or down, inside or outside, front or back, top or bottom...a secret will unfold!
Grab a little bag of goldfish crackers, a glass of wine or an iced tea, to enjoy while you assemble this "hook, line and sinker of a puzzle!"
