Happy New Year Folks!!! Holiday season may be over for the non-puzzling crowd, but for us dissectologists (that’s a fancy way to say lover of jigsaw puzzles), it’s just begun. January is National Puzzle Month, and January 29th is National Puzzle Day! I put my dancing shoes away, pulled out the cozy socks, and got puzzling to start the celebration off. I also reached out to folks over on Instagram to ask them what their favorite parts of puzzling are, and got a great variety of responses. CONTINUE READING

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, one of the best things about puzzles is that they can be about anything! Think of this article as an addendum to my “What’s Your Favorite Puzzle Genre” post because we’re about to go down the rabbit hole that is…POP CULTURE PUZZLES! First off, what exactly is “pop culture”? Popular culture is the set of attitudes, behaviors, beliefs, and objects that is characteristic of a particular society at a given time. It can be broken down into different categories, such as media, entertainment, fashion, and sports. CONTINUE READING

Throughout December, I completed seven puzzle advent calendars. One of them was Gibsons, which has shaped puzzles. I had several messages on Instagram and TikTok asking how I did the shaped puzzles. So today I'm going to go through my shaped puzzle strategy for smaller piece count puzzles with Dejco Whale (150 pieces) and Madd Capp's I Am Lil' Bumble Bee. CONTINUE READING

Ever since I was a little girl, the few times my family would go out to eat Chinese food, I would be more excited about the green tea than the pu pu platter we always shared! In fact, during the 7 years I lived in England, people were always floored that “the Yank” didn’t want the proffered cup of coffee they assumed I’d want, but matched them cup for cup in the tea department (and believe me, Brits drink gallons of tea). CONTINUE READING

Looking for a good pop culture puzzle? Check out Aquarius! My most recent Aquarius puzzle featured the Star Trek Enterprise. I am a big Trekkie - with my personal favorite being Star Trek the Next Generation (it's about about Patrick Stewart's love of puzzles for me). But I have to clarify that the ship on this is from the OG Star Trek despite my small Picard collection making an appearance. CONTINUE READING

The Lunar New Year is the first day of the lunisolar calendar. It is celebrated on the new moon that appears between January 21st and February 20th. China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, and South Korea all celebrate Lunar New Year with their own meaning and traditions. CONTINUE READING

Trefl has launched a line of wooden puzzles in 2022, and lots of the designs are available at Puzzle Warehouse! I’ve snatched up the cutest one, Colorful Puppy, with art by Dean Russo. This one, along with the majority of the line, are 500+1 piece, but there are a few 1000 designs as well. The packaging was a good sturdy cardboard box, nice and thick, and a pleasing square shape. The front features a full color image of the puzzle, and a sneak peek at some of the whimsy shapes included. CONTINUE READING

Happy December! The month of cold weather and snow (hopefully!), holiday decorations and delicious holiday food. And the month for gift giving! I figured this might be a great topic to discuss in December, as many of us may receive puzzles from friends or family members. If your friends and family are wise- they will ask for a puzzle wish list, as I know most of us tend to be picky puzzlers. CONTINUE READING

I not only love jigsaw puzzles, I love all things puzzle and game related. This month I'd like to share some of the cool puzzle adjacent items a.k.a. brain teasers available at Puzzle Warehouse. These brain teasers are not only good for helping keep your brain active, they can also be almost meditative and they are excellent for fidgety fingers. CONTINUE READING
