WASGIJ – JAN 2017

 

There are three new gorgeous Wasgij puzzles announced for January.

wasgij_jan2017_destiny17payingtheprice_my13apurrrfectescape_im3slumberparty

Wasgij Mystery #13: A Purrfect Escape, 1000 pieces

In this puzzle the image you piece together will be a “what happens next” of the box image (shown below).

From the website: Special Agent Wasgij looking out of luck, as his arch-enemy draws ever closer with a deadly laser, but can he act fast enough to escape the evil laboratory? This can’t be his final job, can it? Use your imagination, and the clues provided on the box, to piece together what will happen next. Can you work out how Special Agent Wasgij can escape? This is the scene you will have to puzzle.

mystery_13_main_image

Wasgij Imagine #3: Slumber Party!, 1000 pieces

From the website: Slumber Party! depicts a lively household at bed time, but with the children running round and toys everywhere, Dad is losing his patience – but surely the house will quieten down when everyone’s asleep?  Try to imagine the same scene in an hour or two. What could be playing havoc while the family are sleeping? This is the scene you have to puzzle.

imagine_3_main_image

Wasgij Destiny 17: Paying the Price!, 1000 pieces

From the website: Try to imagine how the petrol station scene might look today with modern day cars and increased petrol prices.destiny_17_main_image

WASGIJ REPRINTS!

I’m happy to see Wasgij re-releasing some of their early puzzles. I’ll probably pick these up to replace the aging versions I bought off ebay. They are reissuing Destiny #1, Original #1, and Mystery #1.

That’s it for this new puzzle round up. Merry Christmas, everyone!
