    Have to admit I only did a small part of it, my SO is an expert puzzler and he did most of it. I wouldn't say it was particularly hard, though, because it had enough variety of color to let you segregate those pieces, e.g., all of the red have to be on either this or that billboard image...
    It's the puzzles with similar shades of just a few colors that seem to throw me off.

    Yeah, me too. Unfortunately, I really love the images that tend to be hard........like fall leaves, trees, creekbeds, etc. That's why I like puzzle pieces that are pretty differently shaped from each other..........'cause then I can go on shape, instead of color. I hate a difficult puzzle with all the same shaped pieces. I've learned to ask the puzzle companies if the puzzle I want has irregularly shaped pieces before I buy it. But if it's an image I love........I tolerate anything. haha

    I've been wondering if puzzles with fewer pieces end up looking much different than the higher numbered pieced puzzles. Is it like cross-stitch where the more stitches per inch is a more solid-looking piece? I'm thinking of maybe getting that Barn owl puzzle in the 1,000 piece size and comparing it to the 285 piece size...........but geez..........a 1,000 piece mostly owl puzzle would no-doubt drive me wacky. haha
    What kinds of images does your husband tend to like?

    We're living together, not married yet (probably in 2020, basically for financial reasons.)
    Anyway, he will tackle all kinds of puzzles as long as it's not a childish image of kittens, puppies or similar. The 3-D puzzle didn't go over well either - too dizzying.

    Wow. Ran across this the other day while I was wasting time watching youtube videos, this is one big puzzle and this guy was fully committed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAaFJFdmSDI

    Wow. I think I'd rather be in prison. Seriously. Plus, I just couldn't work on the floor like that. haha

    Someone got me a 3-D puzzle once, and i threw it out. My mind just doesn't think like that. It wasn't any fun at all. Actually, I couldn't even make any progress on it. I guess I'm a 1-Dimensional person. haha
