 Publisher: WH Smith (UK), Released 2013 Title:  “Winter Scene" by artist Sarah Adams, 1000 pieces OUR RATING: 9/10 I've only recently discovered the WH Smith line of limited edition Christmas puzzles.

Published by Wasgij (a Jumbo company), 1000 pieces, May 2014 -- Artwork by Bill Houston Our Rating:  10/10 I'm a fan of the Wasgij puzzles.  The idea is that the image on the box cover is only a clue as to the puzzle image.  It makes for a nice challenge not to be able to refer... CONTINUE READING

I've been trying out some new brands of puzzles I've never done before for my Brand Comparison Review.  Of the Buffalo Games offerings, I was drawn to this Charles Wysocki image.
