My subscription jigsaws have been going for well over a year.

Judging by all the e-mails I receive and the fact that nearly everyone re-subscribes, they are enormously popular. Many folk count the days to "Puzzle Day" each week! It seems there's something very special about a new jigsaw arriving every week.

But I don't want you to take my word for it!

So this is what I've come up with:

A free one month's subscription to anyone who wants it!

Just click on the link to take a peek:

http://mulawa.net/pj/free_sub.html

But ... be warned ... it's not all good ... I know one husband who lies awake on Puzzle Night listening to his wife snap the latest puzzle pieces together.

But in amongst all this puzzle mania I'm still finding time to work on my next game. I was rather certain that there would be no more after Magnetic but time heals all and last January saw me off on a creative binge once again. I estimate the new game is about one third finished so it will probably be more than a year before release.

Visitors to the Mulawa Dreaming forum are just now starting to see screenshots - all very exciting!

Best wishes ... Peter

Hi Becky,

Many thanks for pinning my topic.

The screenshots (currently only one) are at the Mulawa Dreaming private forum - I can't afford to have my ideas on public display when the release date is so far in the future. Anyone with one of my games will already know how to get to the forum.

Peter

I'm a subscriber and LOVE receiving my new jigsaws on "jigsaw day". My hubby too, has had to lie alone in bed listening to snapping jiggy pieces laugh

What I like best about Peter's Jigsaws is that they are full screen images, not those small, cramped kind where you have to scroll left or right. The pictures are all original and unique...lots of fun! smile

Hooray! happydance Another game is wonderful news.

While I'm waiting for that is there any chance you have plans for more Moving Jigsaws? I have finished all 3 sets and am now reworking those. A new set would be terrific! thumbsup

Burpee said "pictures are all original and unique...lots of fun!"

They surely are, some are well known places, but with a special viewpoint, others are great nature/landscape shots, some are creations from his own designs, some are local folk art, the list is endless.

Tuesday and Friday are the high points of my week.

I have the twice a week puzzles, and I love them. Lots of fun, especially as time constraints have put a damper on my advenure gaming. Peter's Jigsaws are just the thing to while away a spare 1/2 hour.

I love my puzzles also. smile It's always fun to work on one of them. Especially when time is restricted & it's not convenient to play a big game or I just want to relax with something graphical & fun.

Jenny, you will be happy you signed up. smile

How exciting. Just sent off this week's jigsaw with heaps of extra names on the list! If you put your hand up for a Trial Subscription and it hasn't arrived yet, please e-mail me straightaway (you can always contact me via my website).

And well done to all those wise people who heeded the addiction warnings and didn't put their hand up ... but we'll still understand if you weaken later ... the offer is ongoing.

Namma ... the bad news is that the New Game makes a new series of PMJ unlikely for a long time ... the good news is that there's a neat variation of PMJ included in the New Game.

Dreary calling it "The New Game" all the time ... it of course has a title ... but, sadly, I can't risk someone else using it before me frown

I just clicked to take a peek & you got me! What a strange & wonderful thing to see "Craig, the wandering minstrel" (a good friend of mine) as one of your picts!!! Small world!

I was sold as soon as you said there was a new game in the works Peter. Now knowing that there is a variation of my favorite jigsaw in the new game, all I can say is "Can I preorder now?"

Those moving jigsaws are just so fiendish! evil

Peter, I edited the title of this thread so that the great offer you are making would be obvious.

I hope you get tons of new subscribers... luck

Hurray! I thought you'd eventually recover and do another game. After all, I'm pretty sure at one point you thought Xiama was going to be it too. happydance bravo

Hooray!!!! I am so ready for a new game from you, Peter. I was just wishing for one a couple of weeks ago. I guess I'll have to be patient until it's done, but I know it'll be worth the wait! Thanks!

I can't say much about the new game smile smile smile
But I can say that its not Xiama and its not Magnetic but it is going to be up to Peter's usual standard of game. Each one is better than the one before and I think you will all enjoy this one laugh
The jigsaws, well, as anyone who has them knows they are really great (and this is from a person who would not go out and buy a jigsaw) but there is something really satisfying about doing a jigsaw on the computer and Peter has come up with some really fantastic ideas.
I think the nice thing is that each one is different - not all the same type of picture and like Burpee I am really honoured that Peter has used some of my images as jigsaws - makes me really proud when he thinks one is good enough. My latest one he likes will be number 300 and something laugh
If you decide to weaken and try the one month free offer then pop over to the Mulawa forum and let us know - after all - that's where Peter drops hints on anything he is involved with smile

My e-mail's been busy all day! So pleased that so many of you are prepared to give the sub idea a try.

Subscribers in the last 24 hours should realise that the next mailout isn't till next Friday (well Friday my time but I think it's Friday for most folk also). But you've got plenty to go on with - 2 jigsaws from the demo plus "Roses Are Red" ... not to mention the NINE moving jigsaws! Almost too much isn't it?!

I should also mention that folk who decide to continue with their subscription are invited to the Mulawa Dreaming private forum - where I'm starting to post screenshots of "The New Game".

Best wishes ... Peter

I still haven't been able to finish Magnetic. Several puzzles I can't seem to get even with the hints.

I think I'm doing something wrong. I've downloaded the 'Roses are Red', and Installed it. However, the Mulawa file is not showing up in the start menu (the Mulawa file is in the C:\programs) and when I click on it, all I get are individual picts of the pieces. How do I make it work? duh
