"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Puzzle is it interesting for you or boring?

Hello!
I am curious to know what do you think about it.
For me it is very interesting to make a big picture that includes 1000, 2000 or more small pieces. For some it is a pleasant activity, for others - not. It depends on the type of people. What about you?

    I prefer more active activities like cycling, rollerblading, etc. Puzzle can be interesting for me if I can't go outside because of bad weather for example.

    Hi @meverik.
    Thank you very much for tilbakemelding. You are the first who wrote comment in my first discussion. :)
    I like active sports too: slalom skiing, figure skating and jogging. But puzzle is the one of the things that gives me relaxing stay.

    I like puzzle gaming if it is easy . if its level then it is boring because i cannot understand it
  • OksNikOksNik Posts: 92 ✭✭
    My experience: maximal size 1000 x 700 mm with 2000 puzzles. And you, @meverik ?
  • OksNikOksNik Posts: 92 ✭✭
    Hi @susheela.
    If you like puzzles, but feel that it is boring because of the large amount of puzzle-part, it is advisable to increase the level gradually. Starting from 100 number of puzzles and increase afterwards. Here is important (as in all activities) that you like to do this and get pozitive mood :)

    As a kid, I used to love doing jigsaw puzzles @OksNik. As Christmas presents, they were guaranteed to keep me very happy during the long, cold evenings. But it's ages since the last time I did any.

    @OksNik I used to play puzzle game when I was a kid but I got frustrated when I would not sort out the puzzle. Puzzle game teach you how tenacious effort can be helpful.

    @kindgnice I don't have that puzzle which I used to complete almost ten years ago. It was scenery of a Forrest and the most difficult puzzle I have ever seen.

    Thank you for your input in the discussion, @shah51272, @kindgnice, @mheredge, @Wesam.Fawzy, @abhishekb9099 .
    It's very nice to hear your opinion and look at your wonderful puzzle-pictures :)
  • OksNikOksNik Posts: 92 ✭✭
    I can not show my completed puzzle-pictures.
    I do not store images of puzzle. I like the process of puzzle-folding. When I have finished a picture, I am very excited that I managed to do it. Afterwards I disassembles the picture and put it in the box back.
    About six months later I can start to make this picture again. Or new puzzle if I buy something interesting by that time :)
