The OG – MicroPuzzles – 150 pieces
Beautiful puzzle of the original Spilsbury “dissected map” from 1767 owned by MicroPuzzles. It was way too difficult to assemble in the usual place, there just isn’t adequate lighting in our powder room. After having it in there for a couple of weeks and struggling to get it assembled, I finally gave in and finished it in the puzzle room.
When you see the image on it’s own without all the piece shapes it looks as if it would probably be pretty easy to assemble – especially because there are only 150 pieces. It wasn’t. At least not for me. It’s almost monochromatic and without proper lighting to see what was what I found it quite difficult.
I still enjoyed it though, it wasn’t one of those difficult puzzles that makes you question whether or not it’s worth doing. And when I got nearer the end, it got more and more fun with each piece. 😉
