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!
