Buffalo Games: The Gathering

Details: Advertised as the 'World's Most Difficult Jigsaw Puzzle' with 'only 500 pieces - seems like 4000' this puzzle is copyright 1993 by Don Scott Associates, Inc. 

Difficulty: This is a double sided puzzle but the sides are rotated 90 degrees with respect to each other. This puzzle isn't really that hard once you figure out a system of determining which side is 'up' for the piece. The large amount of green in the design made it difficult to determine whether the piece fit or not - thankfully when that happened you could just flip the pieces and use the picture on the other side to determine if the piece fit. It didn't take me longer to complete than a regular 500 piece puzzle would have. It's not significantly more difficult but the design differences challenge the puzzling brain in a fun way.  

Done: 16 November 2013

Cost: 0.25 cents

Obtained: Thrift store

Missing Pieces: One

Size: 15 x 15 

This puzzle isn't mine but was done while visiting a friend. With it's nice picture and sturdy pieces I would love to have this puzzle in my collection!
