New Puzzles for June 2016

There are some cool new puzzles to talk about. First, let’s look at the ones that were just announced (and aren’t yet in stock).

NEW PUZZLE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Buffalo Games

First, some new puzzles from Buffalo Games including a new 2000 piecer called “Sweet Shop”!

Also, I was very excited to see this Wysocki Halloween themed puzzle. It was published by Milton Bradley many years ago, and has been very pricey on the used puzzle market. I only wish they offered it in 1000 or even 2000 pieces too! This is a classic.  [Note: it’s also just reached Puzzle Warehouse and is now in stock! CLICK HERE for product page.]

And a new collage puzzle that looks quite fun to put together.

Springbok

Springbok just announced two new puzzles, both of which are very detailed masculine puzzles (for Father’s Day perhaps).

“The Bait Shop”, 1000 pieces

“Vintage Baseball”, 1000 pieces

POMEGRANATE

Some outstanding new puzzles were announced from Pomegranate! There’s a lovely Asian themed puzzle called “Ultimate Tantra”, a new Mike Wilks puzzle called “The Letter B” (you can see our review of “The Letter S” here), and I’m excited to see a new Charley Harper national parks puzzle! That one definitely goes to the top of my Most Wanted list.

WHITE MOUNTAIN

First, there’s a new Steve Crisp called “The Old Tractor” in 1000 pieces

If you’re more of a collage puzzle fan, this “Garden Seeds” (1000 pieces) looks promising

There are two new Terry Redlin puzzles. “Always Alert” in 1000 pieces (shown below) looks considerably lighter than past Terry Redlin puzzles.

And finally, “Grizzly” in 300 pieces is an interesting take on “Coloring book” puzzles. One side is already colored and the other side of the puzzle is just black and white lines so you can color it yourself. I love the shaped outline. Wish it came in a larger size!

SUNSOUT

Sunsout releases this month are all about coloring book puzzles too. They have a different take on it. They are selling “sets” which include two 500 piece puzzles (in full olor) plus posters in black and white that you can color yourself.

    Jane,

    Thanks for the alert on “Trick Or Treat Hotel” by Wysocki. He is one of my favorite jigsaw artists.

    I had “Trick Or Treat Hotel” by Wysocki when it was released by MB as a 1000 piece puzzle. It was challenging. The 500 piece looks more inviting.
    When do the major puzzle companies usually release their puzzles and how long are they usually “in print”.

    • Hi, there. Most puzzle brands (like Ravensburger, Heye, Jumbo) release new puzzles in January and perhaps again in July. But some puzzle companies release throughout the year (Buffao Games, White Mountain). Each brand’s release schedule is given on our New Puzzle feature page here: https://jigsawjunkies.com/front/2016-puzzles/
