Just be warned smile some of them are more difficult than others smile But you will all have quite a way to go until you get to the most difficult one - which was designed by a non jigsaw player smile smile smile
But they are fun aren't they smile
Clare, I hope you enjoy the free month trial and hope you try out the subscription smile

Thanks Bea, Jenny and Mulawa1 for the heads up on TallyHo's walkthrough on Magnetic. Because of it I was able to master the bowling ball puzzle. Have some more to do yet. Thanks again.

Wow! Just sent out this week's jigsaws with heaps of new ones going out! If you put your hand up for the trial and your e-mail hasn't arrived yet please e-mail me directly via my website. I've had one bounce so far with @earathlink.net in the address which I suspect is meant to be "earthlink.net"

Best wishes to all the new subscribers ... Peter

Peter, I have the PJ icon on the desktop. To download Roses are Red puzzle, do I just download it to the desktop or select the PJ file?

Hi Bets,

Download Roses to the desktop, double click it to install it. When it is finished you can delete the file from the desktop.

Now ... run PJ ... press "N" ... and Roses will be there.

Hope this helps ... Peter

I'm really enjoying them - thank you Peter! But I agree with the person who said they wanted a box lid. Towards the end it gets really difficult to see the remaining pieces and the whole jigsaw at the same time. I'm doing the Roses puzzle at the moment, and there are lots of holes all around the puzzle with similar pieces. So if I use Peter's suggested method of moving the jigsaw to the side to reveal some pieces, I can't see some of the places where the pieces need to go. Tricky! But fun!

Here's a trick I use.
Try and clear out a quadrant, then move the puzzle to it. since you'll only see 1/4 of it at a time, rotate the whole puzzle to get various sections into the cleared quadrant.

Clare, if you don't want to see all the pieces at one time hit O which moves them all to the page where you can select them and place them into boxes and only bring that box back to the main picture screen. I hope that makes sense. To get to the screen where you can select the pieces and put them into boxes you hit B. Of course I do the jigsaws the simplest way LOL I know there are some who refuse to even look at the picture until they have completed the puzzle and also don't want to rotate the jigsaw pieces so that they are all the correct way up. but they are experts and I am not.

I'm having a wonderful time with these puzzles--the doll one was a bear to get finished, but today's seems to be easier. I have a hunch this will be the way it will always be, some easier than others.

About the only shortcut I use is to isolate the edge pieces. I always start a jigsaw puzzle by picking out all the edges, but with the whole puzzle in such a small place, it's very difficult to see which ones are edges, so I reluctantly take a shortcut.

Peter, are we all getting the same puzzle each week, and if so, is there any way we can access the old ones that other subscribers have already received... think

I like mine with no shortcuts also & with the pieces in random order, Jenny. I have used that edge feature a few times, but prefer to do it all myself. smile I love jigsaws, especially the photos of people and places, pretty landscapes.

I work on them whenever I feel like a break.

I think you might be getting them from the beginning, Jenny, the same order that we all did when we started so you are accessing the old ones. At least it seems so from some of your descriptions of the images?

Oh, so everyone doesn't get the same puzzle each week, depending on when they subscribed? So far, besides the roses and dolls, I've gotten a horse race picture, one of a booth with all sorts of things for sale, and the one on Tuesday was too hard to describe. Are those the beginning puzzles?

I'm having a ball--if anyone enjoys jigsaws and hasn't tried Peter's program, I strongly encourage you to check it out...

Jenny, normally each person starts at the beginning of the list - Peter has produced over 300 jigsaws now so you have lots to go. You will notice that each time you get the jigsaw you get a link to your own personal gallery showing which jigsaws you have had and in most cases a small amount of information about them. And yes - some of the jigsaws are nice and easy and some of them are really really difficult. There are also a few of them that have different style edges as well smile I think the nice thing about these is that they are all so different that you don't easily get bored with them. When Peter first started the jigsaws the templates for the jigsaws were the same so the really skilled jigsaw players could tell where pieces had to go where but Peter quickly changed that as well smile

Bea, you had to remind me of the "ball" puzzle. I'm having flashbacks right now, lol. This is one that the diehard jigger will adore; just wait and see!

I like my puzzles EASY! I always start by hitting "O" to leave the edge pieces exposed. Sometimes there's a missing piece at the end and you can't find it...just hit "A" and it will appear.

You can hit "T" to tidy up and depending on where you place your cursor, they will go to the top, bottom, either side or the middle. This will make placing them when the puzzle is almost done, much easier.

Clare, ROTFL! I don't know where "fall" came from unless it means "the leaves fall" but autumn is actually correct. If I use the word "fall" it's said "the fall".

All new subscriptions start from the very beginning. There used to be a gallery showing all the jigsaws but I think it was done away with because it spoiled the surprise smile

Clare, yes it is coincidental - and Peter as I said has these jigsaws worked out months in advance - it was really spooky because one of them was a picture of the Vatican City and we got that one the week the Pope died.
Burpee - yes I was thinking of the "ball" puzzle - which is so hard and yet was designed by a non jigsaw player and looks incredibly easy.

Thanks for the information, everyone. The one I got yesterday looks very much on the "challenging" side!! happydance

One thing I've been wondering--is there a puzzle using the picture of the castle in Gabriel Knight 2? That would be beautiful...

Jenny, I don't think so - Peter does use quite a few from his games. But he is always happy to have suggestions for jigsaws - particularly for example if you have any photographs that you think would be ideal

Uh oh, Bea. smile That's just asking to be swamped by everyone's favorite cute pictures. lol

I love the different shaped pieces. They make the puzzles so much fun and much more challenging. I always play with the pieces randomized and in no order. I love to discover the edge pieces hidden away somewhere.
rotfl

I think my favorite might be the puppets. They are so interesting!
