So puzzles came up on a thread, and it made me want to talk about it a bit more. I've been working on puzzles since arriving at my parents' house in Canada, and I feel like a child again. I grew up doing puzzles, and I still love them.
My mother has a friend in England who sends her things every now and again. I noticed my mom had some new puzzles, so i checked them out. They are Wentworth Wooden Puzzles, and they are brilliant. The one shown in the image is about 40 pieces, yet it took my wife and I half an hour to put together (took my mom's friend a few hours). The pieces are very different in shape, which makes it more difficult--and fun. They're solid wood, too, which feel great and sturdy.
I think coming here for Christmas has sucked me back into the world of puzzles, and it was these Wentworth ones that did it. Of course, not all of the puzzles are as difficult as the one pictured, but they all have at least some fun and unique shapes to fit in.
