    I love Sunsout puzzles and (unfortunately for me!) they recently released a lot of amazing Nene Thomas images – I think I bought them all!!

    Hi Jane, I just finished Sunsout’s Witch’s Brew. It’s a really cute puzzle, but right out of the box there were at least 6 bent pieces (all were rectangular 2 knob, 2 hole pieces), which detracts from the overall quality of the finished puzzle. Does that happen very often to you and is it just the nature of the beast? Just wondering if it’s more of an anomaly or a frequent occurrence. Thx ~ Nancy

      No, I haven’t seen that with Sunsout. If you see something like this, best to take a picture and return the puzzle for a new one.
