Dream by Sascalia – Remarks – 250 pieces

I was shocked by the quality of this puzzle; it’s the first 250 piece Re-marks puzzle that I’ve done, and the quality was very very good. Such a pleasant surprise! This was a quick assembly, but fun and relaxing – perfect for a lazy afternoon.

I haven’t done a puzzle from this artist before, I like the image very much. Looking around online I see that there’s a whole series of 250 piece Re-marks puzzles by Sascalia. I like the looks of them. 🙂 Here’s hoping we find more of them in the thrift stores!

The pieces were about the same thickness as a Ravensburger puzzle, and had the waxy sort of feel of a Jumbo or Gibsons puzzle. I was definitely not expecting such lovely pieces! I’ve done several Re-marks puzzles, and their pieces are a good thickness, but I’ve never had any of this thickness, or with the same finish. Excellent image reproduction and fit, and just all around wonderful quality. The image is lovely and perfect for puzzling, I enjoyed it very much!

    I’m assembling my first ever Re-marks puzzle and it’s a 1000 piece count and I’m very impressed with the piece quality and image quality. I’m so glad to hear that you’ve done other puzzles by Re-marks and have also been impressed with the quality.

    I find it very strange that the Re-marks website has such limited information about their current product line — you really can’t find much information about what puzzles have already and will release in 2017.

    That piece fit looks super snug in your photo above!

    1. I’m glad you’re enjoying your puzzle – that’s all that really matters. I was happily surprised by the quality of this puzzle, and the fit was just right, snug enough but not pry-bar tight.

      Perhaps the fact that Re-marks only sells through distributors is the reason for the lack of info. I’m sure their sellers have a lot of information than we don’t have access too.

      Happy puzzling!
