Hello puzzlers – Sarah from Jigthings here.
I’m a big fan of Game of Thrones. Not only have I read the books (hurry up George Martin and get the series finished), but I’ve also seen the show at least 10 times!
My screensaver is Drogon, Daenerys’ biggest and fiercest dragon and there are two gorgeous ceramic ornaments of dragons on my windowsill. This past Christmas I received a Game of Thrones globe 3-D jigsaw.
Well I never did! It was the hardest jigsaw I’ve ever come across. In fact, I’m ashamed to say I had to follow the numbers on the back of the pieces to put it together. It now lives between the Aconyx and Pyronyx (the two ceramic dragons) on the windowsill.
For today’s jigsaw theme, we are looking at 3-D puzzles. Let’s start with Hogwarts. What a fun puzzle for a Harry Potter fan to do. It’s a total of 197 pieces and the size of the completed puzzle is 32.5 x 45.5cm. Available at £26.00, this would make a great birthday gift for a budding wizard.
For something a little more complex, how about another famous building? This is, of course, Notre-Dame in Paris. It’s 830 pieces and looks rather difficult. Not one I’ll be adding to my Santa list this Christmas. Price is £40.99.
How cute is this one? He could even live outside in the garden on dry days. It’s a little pricey at £34.99 but with 269 pieces made of wood, I think it’s worth the extra.
And last but not least, here is the Game of Thrones Globe jigsaw. Perhaps not as colourful or interesting as the others, but as a GoT fan, it’s something for your collection. There are 240 pieces and the size is 22.9 x 6.4 x 22.9 cm. It retails at €22.04.
If you’ve never done a 3D puzzle before, now’s the time to start!
