LIFE: The Great Challenge. This is one of the world's largest jigsaw puzzles at 24,000 pieces. Coming in at #4, it is surpassed by the 33,600 piece Wildlife, the 32,000 piece Double Retrospect, and the 32,000 piece New York City. When it is finished, it measures 168.5" x 61.75". That is 14 feet long and 5 feet tall. This a REAL challenge for the Master Puzzler.
Life is designed by Royce B. McClure, who has had well over a hundred jigsaw puzzles previously published. Like life itself, this puzzle is full of variety, color, activity, beauty, drama and above all - Life! A lot of the intricate detail won't be seen until the pieces are put together, rewarding the puzzlers with surprises as they work to complete the challenge.
The puzzle comes in four packets, breaking the art up into four vertical sections that join together to make the completed image. Make sure you've got a very large workspace for this one - you'll need it.
If you are local here in St. Louis and want to see it real life - stop by our store, where we have the finished 24,000 piece puzzle on display down our longest aisle!
In April, 2013, Puzzle Warehouse donated this puzzle to the National Museum of Play. See photos of the exhibit over on our blog.

IF YOU LIKE A GOOD CHALLANGE THIS IS IT. IT TOOK 8 MONTHS TO BUILD BUT IT WAS VERY FUN. WORKED ON IT ALMOST EVERYDAY. THE WATER WAS THE HARDEST BUT WORTH IT. NOW WE ARE FRAMING IT AND THATS A BIGGER CHALLANGE THAN THE PUZZLE. DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW. I BUILT WITH MY MOM AND IT WAS A GREAT BONDING TIME.... LOVE MY PUZZLE!!!!!

I just purchased this 24,000 and it's hard for me to give you a review on it since I think it'll take a bit longer to complete. The few pieces I put in are very satisfying though. I'll keep you posted.

My husband really wanted this puzzle for our basement so I bought it. We received it in early November and have already completed half the puzzle. It is organized into four sections which makes the puzzle easier to put together. We are having a great time working on it at night but those nights turn into late nights because you lose track of time. We don't know how much longer it will take us to finish but are looking forward to the day we finish the entire puzzle and have a big wall plaque to hang up to show off all the hard work.
