What If? – Garden Open Day

What If? – Garden Open Day – Ravensburger – 1000 pieces

It’s been a while since I’ve done a What If puzzle, almost forgot how much fun they are! Also, I’m only showing a tiny portion of the puzzle, because I don’t want to give away the “answer”.

In this puzzle, Hyacinth has worked all year with the help of her husband to get her garden ready for the “open gardens” weekend, what will happen if unexpected visitors drop in?

I haven’t done a regular Ravensburger in a while, I’ve just been working on the giant Ravensburger puzzle. It reminded me how awesome this puzzle company is, and why they’re my favorite. The pieces are wonderfully thick, they fit together so well that you always know if you’ve got the right piece, the image reproduction is gorgeous and there are a variety of piece shapes so it isn’t boring. Ravensburger Rocks!!

Cartoon puzzles are my favorite and I adore the artwork of Geoff Tristam. I can’t really say why, it’s not childish cartoony at all and just something about his artwork makes me happy. So add together Geoff Tristam cartoon puzzle with Ravensburger and I am a happy happy puzzler! 🙂

    I just got one of these at the thrift store and am excited to give it a try. What is a good strategy for putting together this type of puzzle? I haven’t done any where I don’t refer to the picture. It looks like you have been finding some good puzzles lately. Always enjoy seeing them. I’m wondering what you will do with the giant Disney puzzle when you are done?


    1. For some of the What If and Wasgij puzzles you can at the very least tell what the background should look like. After that it’s usually grab a bunch of pieces that are the same color and try to assemble them. Once you have several things assembled you can try to see if they connect somewhere. One thing will lead to another. It takes more time, but I enjoy the challenge 🙂

      I still haven’t figured out what I’m going to do with the Disney puzzle! Any suggestions?

    I can’t even figure out what to do with my rapidly growing puzzle collection. Sorry, no ideas for you on the Disney puzzle. Thanks for the tips on the What If puzzle. I’m getting it out tonight.
