10 Challenging Jigsaw Puzzles That Aren’t for the Faint of Heart
Pour yourself a glass of wine — this might take a while
If you’re like us, spending more time indoors may have you feeling a bit stir-crazy. And while there’s nothing wrong with binging yet another Netflix show, it’s good to step away from the screens every once in a while and attempt something a bit more challenging. Did we say a bit? We meant something really challenging — like a crazy-difficult puzzle.
Puzzles certainly aren’t a new indoor pastime, so if you’ve already exhausted the 500-piece beach sunset puzzle you found in the back of your closet weeks ago and are ready for a new challenge, we’re here to help. From fully transparent pieces to an all-black find with a cheeky “good luck” written in the middle, these difficult puzzles require you to mix and match pieces based solely off their shape — not the image on the box.
Feel free to start out slow with the pretty Areaware Gradient Puzzle or Rainbow puzzle, both of which offer some colors to guide your journey and will look stunning once complete. Or pour yourself an extra glass of wine and dive right in with the Blank Jigsaw Puzzle, featuring (you guessed it) no colors at all. Either way, you’re sure to feel challenged and stay entertained for hours.
