Title: Jigsaw Puzzles!
Post by: Star Magician on May 11, 2015, 12:09:15 PM
I love jigsaw puzzles, and always have since I was little.
I started doing them again a few months ago after randomly discovering a Legend of Zelda jigsaw puzzle on Amazon.

Anyone else like them here? Complete one recently you'd like to share? Do puzzles frustrate you to the point of hemorrhoids? Discuss...

Here are some of mine:

This I found on my computer just now. I did this puzzle about 5 years ago. It took me and my aunt 3 days. It was 1000 pieces and very hard.

This is the Zelda Puzzle I did a few months ago. It was hard despite only being 500 pieces due to the lack of color variation. Took me 6 hours.

This one took me over 30 hours. It was a pain in the ass because all of the pieces are pretty much the same shape and there are 1500 of them. >.< But the end result was awesome. It's framed now.

This one is 1000 pieces, and I think it took me around 16 hours total.

This Majora's Mask puzzle can still be ordered from Club Nintendo while it lasts. It's 300 pieces and it took me 2 hours and 30 minutes.

I just did this one tonight. It was 550 pieces, and it was much easier than it looks. Only took me 4 hours and 40 minutes.

While typing this, I forgot that there are no spoiler tags on TLW, so sorry for the large images... o_O

I used to do them a lot in highschool, in my BD classes anyway. It was kinda neat because there was a handful of us that would work on the same puzzle. Usually at way different times, but sometimes together.
I'd like to sit down, blast music and do one with one of my brothers some time, but like most things I mention having an interest in.
It'll have to wait.


How much do you usually pay for a puzzle ?

If you get one from a department store (Fred Meyer has the best selection in my experience), then they usually run around $10, give or take a few. Not bad, really. The 1500-piece castle puzzle cost me about $30 after shipping, as I ordered it from Amazon. Imports and other 1000+piece puzzles can cost even more online.
Unless the price is abnormally high, I actually will disregard price altogether when selecting one if I like the image enough.

My mom used to let me help with hers, then frame them.   I like doing them, but find it difficult to find any. Especially ones I want to do.        Once I helped a friend with one that was the Earth floating in space.  It was 1000 pieces.  All looked the same. And the one piece I zeroed in on was the one they accidentally lost underneath it.  *flails*        I have a really cool one I did that I'll have to get a picture of for you, Star.

Umm... they're all so neat.  Probably the third one.     Next time I visit my grandma, I'll show you my acid trip one.

I finally got a custom frame for the Majora's Mask puzzle. It looks awesome and it actually glows in the dark. o_O

You can get this at Amazon if you want, but... that price though.
