The new one is only 500 pieces, i think it would’ve been even funnier to increase the piece count with each subsequent box

That is the best news I’ve received all week. Ravensburger is the best puzzle out there. Mrs Peas will lose her shit.

Also: My favorite puzzles of all time are the Colin Thompson series. They’re so packed with detail that each piece is not only unique, but has little details that you can only really appreciate one piece at a time.

It looks like he has two couches that face each other with the table in between - it would have been better if he hadn’t switched couches for the photos…

We have a few puzzlers in the family and both my dad and sister-in-law have been given custom jigsaws with pictures of themselves (w/ their grandkids or kids) as xmas presents. A recursive puzzle of them doing last year’s gift is a new idea. Maybe next year

Now, who do I dislike enough to send them one of those anonymously… :smiling_imp:

And the year after, and the year after that…

That’s fascinating! I wouldn’t want to try it just because I’d be thinking the whole time that there’s no point since you can’t ever call it finished. Still, really neat design!
