(Puzzle) I consider myself a rather accomplished puzzler, but this puzzle is quite the challenge. The different areas of the puzzle, though very distinguishable when viewed as a whole, are frustratingly similar in their various parts. My daughter and I, and a bevy of friends, have been trying to put it together for weeks now. For those who want a challenge and are tired of the all too easily assembled puzzles out there, this one will prove your mettle as a puzzle person. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 14 of 14 people found the following review helpful Challenging, almost annoying, August 29, 2009 By LegoGirl – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: College of Magical Knowledge a 1500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle by Sunsout Inc. (Puzzle) Definitely a difficult puzzle, because there are very few parts of the puzzle that are obviously “unique.” Even the EDGE was hard to get together correctly. Once we had assembled perhaps 75% of the puzzle, we started getting almost annoyed at trying to finish it. The last 20 pieces were just as hard! I would recommend this for the hardcore puzzle-lover, but it’s not a good pick for a family activity or for people looking for some puzzle-relaxtion. Quality of the puzzle pieces is good and it held together well once we got it finished. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 9 of 9 people found the following review helpful Artificially Difficult & Mirrored, December 30, 2013 By Amazon Customer – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: College of Magical Knowledge a 1500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle by Sunsout Inc. (Puzzle) I am an accomplished puzzler and have completed many challenging puzzles in terms of image, piece design, etc. This puzzle was difficult, but “artificially” so. Here are my two major complaints about this puzzle: 1. It was mirrored. The whole image was vertically flipped. This matters because there are words on the sign that look absolutely ridiculous flipped. This saddens me because I had planned on framing the puzzle. 2. The pieces were loose-fitting. You could not manipulate large chunks at all – you couldn’t even count on two pieces to stay together! This made the whole process frustrating, including attempting to mat the puzzle. Additionally, every part of this puzzle was challenging from an image perspective. I’m not usually a “box looker”, but this puzzle had me closely examining nuances in the photo. Even the last twenty pieces were near impossible for us. I completed this puzzle with my wife, and the whole thing took about 25 hours for us to put together. This is well over the 8-10 hours I usually put into a 1000-piece puzzle solo, even when you account for the extra 500 pieces. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
