So what if a puzzle actually did not give you the answer on the front of the cover?
What if there were no answers at all and you yourself had to find the answer by completing that puzzle with no clues ?
Well finally there are a variety of Puzzles by Ravensburger that have no answers to the eye until that is you complete it by putting the pieces of the puzzle together.
Jig saw Puzzles used to pretty much always bored me . I have to be honest and say I really had no time for that long sitting around and trying to work out which picture went where and until recently I saw them as something my nanna or grandad done when I was little and the television was not so exciting.
Now ? Well now I love the excitement of pulling out a box for the family to try and complete for the week.
It seems a little of the norm now to walk into our home and find a half finished Puzzle laying on our coffee table in our front room.
Not just for the adults , even the largest of the puzzles seem to be finding interest from the smaller ones who find it so fun finding a piece that fits and getting dads back up because he spent the past two days looking for THAT PIECE EXACTLY and they came over and found it instantly .
Well this time we wanted to trick the little ones into thinking they knew it all and this week we placed the What If Racehorse Puzzle on our table .
Obviously they did not bother to read the instructions, just like my lovely husband they think they can conquer the world with their little wisdom they have learned in the short time they've been growing.
They had no idea what was happening.
They could not find the pieces to match and once the picture started to unfold as the puzzle built up over the days, the picture of the puzzle on the table did not match the picture on the box of the puzzle so it brought confusion to the kids but also a sense of justification that the adults were able to enjoy a puzzle to themselves without the little ones coming over and thinking they could do it even better .
What If? Puzzles are an exciting new fun and exciting puzzle which encourages your imagination to think about the what ifs in life.
For example -
The Racecourse puzzle shows A family buying a new horse for the races from a dealer and you need to basically find out what happens next.
The man in the picture on the cover of the box promises that the horse is the fastest he has ever riden and he has payed good money so what could go wrong?
The Puzzle once finished looks like this
The funny little brain teaser is a great way to get your thinking caps on and if you love trying to work out the next part of stories or films before they are revealed then this is definitely something that will keep you entertained.
What if puzzles come in many different varieties of circumstances such as -
Also many more .
All are for adults and are 1000 piece puzzles.
The cost are around £12 each and we have spent a couple hours all together with each one over a few days .
We had great fun building the What If puzzle , do you enjoy a more challenging puzzle ?

I would love to have the time to sit down and do jigsaw, but with the kids at the moment I really do not have the time!

Ha ha ha, I love the idea of this jigsaw and it definitely turns the whole thing on its head since no-one can second guess the pieces. Brilliant.

I love the idea of this puzzle. While I enjoy doing puzzles there's no surprise element when you're recreating the picture on the front. I want this!!

I am so bad at jigsaw puzzles especially ones like this. We had one in our cottage for bank holiday weekend and had to give up after spending a whole night on it x

I love a what if scenario and it is great to create a narrative when you are completing a puzzle.

I love puzzles as I was growing up. I don't know what made me stop at some point but I still love them and I would surely try to get hubby to play one with me soon.

Puzzles drive me to the brink of insanity. The kids love them though!

My grandparents do a lot of puzzles, and I do enjoy helping them when I visit. I especially love ones where the picture on the box is different to the actual puzzle!
