Brainteasers

What if I told you that you could buy a puzzle without a picture as guidance?  WHAT?  It’s true.  A few weeks ago, a friend told me about these brainteaser puzzles available in the UK.  I knew I had to find one.  Have you ever tried to put together a puzzle without knowing what it will look like?  CHALLENGING.

Well, I found this one at the bookstore downtown over the weekend.  I was so excited, I think I actually jumped a little bit.

So, the deal is – there are four clues on the box.  There are 1,000 SMALL pieces.  I have to use the clues and my imagination to complete the puzzle & solve the mystery.  Sounds fun, right?  You bet.

Until it’s time to get started!  OVERWHELMING.  Looking at all the pieces scattered across the table and not knowing how they fit together made my brain hurt.  But, I am a stubborn and determined kind of gal.  So, long after my family abandoned the project (the kids lasted about five minutes), I sat at the table searching and searching and searching for the final piece to make the frame.  I never found it.

But, I’ve made some progress and now I have something to keep me busy when I need a break from writing for awhile –

This only took four hours.

 

Until next time  –
