My Rating 9/10 BOO! Did I scare you, well probably not, but I know the puzzle I picked for you this month will for sure. "IT CHAPTER TWO", by Aquarius will definitely give all my fellow Jigsaw Junkies a fright. Who says we have to wait until October for some creepy horror film puzzles. I... Continue Reading →
Halloween is here and who better to usher us in than the Master of Macabre himself, Edward Gorey! His wonderfully unsettling images were always a source of great joy to me. I still own a copy of his "The Gashlycrumb Tinies" that I actually read to my children. I also remember with great fondness his... Continue Reading →

Charles Wysocki. That name has been synonymous with puzzles since at least the 1990's. I think it's safe to say that the man is a puzzle institution. I actually bought this puzzle last year around November. Halloween had come and gone and I still hadn't found a keeper Halloween puzzle. You know what I'm talking... Continue Reading →

This weekend's post shares some new releases that I need to talk about--including some awesome new Pomegranates! For your Edification - A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs: I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself!

Check out our "top ten" list of Halloween puzzles for 2016. Because it's Halloween my list ended up at lucky 13.
I loved assembling this Halloween puzzle! The image by Randy Wollenmann has bright colors and patterns that make assembly easy, quick, and super fun. It was so much fun I completed the puzzle in one session because I just had to do the “next little bit”. The Vermont Christmas Company quality is good with hard, solid pieces. The cut is mostly a grid cut, but not all edges line up and some sides have wavy and diagonal edges. This gave the puzzle a unique personality, and I enjoyed working it. This puzzle is easy enough that it makes an ideal family puzzle. It’s the best of the 2016 Halloween season!
