Christmas 2022 series
We have twelve new jigsaws with a seasonal theme. The puzzles are split into four groups depending on number of pieces and difficulty. Click on a group and you will be taken to a choice of jigsaws in that category.
One jigsaw shows a Pendon modeller on his day off, driving a Christmas Special steam train on the Severn Valley Railway - see if you can spot the mince pies!
Expert - 300 Pieces, about 120 minutes
This is guidance for those trying our jigsaws for the first time.
There are four icon buttons on the left below the puzzle, starting from the left:
First button (“landscape”) brings up a picture of the puzzle, Click on this to see a menu of choices for the size of the picture.
Second button (“ghost”) puts a faint image of the picture on screen - useful for young children. Click again on the button to remove the ghost image.
Third button (“square”) allows you to arrange or disarrange the pieces. When “arranged” they will be clear of the puzzle space and if “disarranged they may not be.
Fourth button (“line”) allows you to restart the puzzle, to change the background colour, to change other settings and gives access to a useful Help section.
To move a piece, when the cursor is over the piece click and hold the left mouse button, move the piece then release the mouse button to release the piece. Whenever you bring two mating pieces close to each other and release the mouse button the pieces click into place. If they don’t, they are not mating pieces.
Above the puzzle to the right is the “Play As” dropdown menu. Here you can choose a different number of pieces for the puzzle and and there is a “Custom” setting that provides shape options and “rotation” - random orientation of the pieces!
