Many Pieces

Puzzle anyone? Nice!!! Well, puzzles, are they exciting to do? Maybe. I guess it all depends on what type of puzzle you like. I like some that are large but not too large. I had done a puzzle years ago, it was an old time advertisement for Coca-Cola. And it took a few months to actually complete. Luckily my dining room table was big enough to fit it. Well, when that giant thing was done, I decided that it needed to be framed. After all, I worked on that puzzle a little in the morning before work and then again after dinner. When I finally got it all done I was real happy. At one point though I was afraid that there might have been some pics missing. Luckily there weren’t. My daughter loves puzzles, but she cannot do those real advanced ones. So I buy her some of the smaller ones and help her with them. My son also had this spiderman puzzle that was a hologram. it was actually pretty cool looking when it was finished. I taped the back to hold it together, but he wound up destroying it at some point. So much for that. I even saw those 3D puzzles, they look cool actually. I never tried building one of those. They have to be somewhat intense. Though I think it would be a challenge to build one of those. I also saw a puzzle that was one solid color. Now that has to be one brain wracking one to do. Every piece being the same. Imagine. Wow. I like puzzles, yes the ones with many pieces. I also like other puzzles. Some of those word search puzzles. You know those books you buy, word search. And there is another type I like. They call them Fill-It-Ins. They look just like crossword puzzles, only they give you the words. You have to find where they go on the grid. I find them actually relaxing. But, as it is, I haven’t had time to do any of them on a very long time. Years actually. I have been online mostly. Not that I am complaining, I like being online. That also relaxes me. What do you think about puzzles? Do you enjoy building or doing various types of puzzles? I bet some of you do.

I like mathematical and word puzzles. I will have no peace till I have solved them. There are those 'how to's' that I like. For example how can you get twelve equal pieces of three sticks chopping them only thrice!

Puzzles are fun. And they also pass the time. But some puzzles could be very stressful.

I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles. I normally do the 1000 pieces, and will have them done in a day and a half. So I made the mistake of complaining about it once to a friend in Canada, that they just didn't last me long. So she sent me a 101 Dalmatian puzzle, but it was double sided. Needless to say, I have never got it done. I got too frustrated with it.

You like challenges then with puzzles. That's cool. So do I. I haven't found one that I think would be worth my time doing. I am looking for one with the Apple Logo or something like that. I think that would be cool. Or a collage of Apple computers from throughout the years.

@inertia4 Yes, I definitely like a challenge when it comes to working puzzles. Otherwise, I would get bored.

@TexanTornado Of course. I get that. I like challenges also. But I find the internet much more rewarding for me these days. Especially being here on MyLot.

Actually, puzzles are good for brain, but very few are now solving them.

They are good for the brain. It keeps us alert. I like different types of puzzles. I don't get to do them like I used to though. I think being online consumes most of my time.

I remember loving puzzles before and passed on this likeness to my kids. Its a good practice for memory building.

I like them. Every once in awhile I think about getting one to build. But I haven't done that in a very long time.

I like a good puzzle. I find people are puzzles. Most seem to have pieces missing. LOL I don't like finding puzzle pieces all over my floor. They seem to multiply there, on my floor.

I know some people that have pieces missing. LOL. And I do like putting together a good challenging puzzle. But not all at one time. I like to be able to work on it a little at a tim.

@inertia4 LOL I like to put them together and clean them up. Well that blows my theory. I was talking to my mother in law today about OCD and I told her I didn't have any. Guess I was wrong. LOL

@mommaj LOL. Hey Now!!! Maybe you have a little OCD. Nothing crazy. I think we all have some OCD inside of us. I have my own quirks as well. So for me it is normal.

I love puzzles. I complete them when I can. With toddlers it is hard to have things like unfinished puzzles lying around. I would love one of those roll up boards that hold the puzzles. Perhaps I will ask for that and a few puzzles at Christmas.

Well, I haven't done one in a long time. I am thinking about it though. And I know my daughter loves puzzles. So maybe for her birthday I will get one as a second or third gift.

I like to be part of a group that works on puzzles, we did that at work with clients. Not so good by myself.

I don't like doing puzzles by myself either. And that is the main reason I have not done one in many years.

@inertia4 your kids could help you when you visit and then there is a special glue to paint them with to keep them

@GardenGerty I have a few that I had framed. Both are Coca-Cola puzzles. My son won't bother with the puzzles. My daughter would. But they are not always in the mood for them either.

I used to love doing puzzles. I used to get mystery ones where the picture on the box was not what the actual puzzle was. I also love word puzzles too.

I like puzzles but have not done a good one in a long time. I like word puzzles also. I like them in a book form though. Maybe I should get me a few for when I am really bored.

I don't think you have to put the tag symbol in to find tags here, but what do I know yet? Yes, I like puzzles, but if I'm working a puzzle then I'm not doing much else. Haven't had a table to work on for many years, but it's free now, still... I enjoy the harder ones. I have one with a yellow background and circles half green and half blue, I think and they are facing different ways. The pieces are odd shaped too. I also have one with the same picture on two sides, that one's a jungle scene. About the only type i don't like are riddles. My husband does well with those, but I can't be bothered.

I have the Tags label because I do write on other sites. So I leave it there on all my posts. I haven't done a puzzle in a long time. A good one that is. I never did a two sided one. But that sounds interesting. I also would like to try one of those 3D puzzles.

I used to do puzzles when I was younger.Though I like them,I prefer word and number puzzles.Nowadays I sit with my grandsons when they try solving simple puzzles.Doing puzzles are exercises for our brains.

I like puzzles. But these days I love spending time online. So I have no time for puzzles.

When I was younger I did a lot of puzzles, and I liked the ones with many pieces. Some years ago a met a new friend who did lots of puzzles and she inspired me to get started again. I like to solve online puzzles. There are many pictures to choose from and you decide how many pieces you want. It is a nice way to relax when I need a break from other online activities.

It is a nice break from online activity. That's for sure. Maybe this winter I will get me a nice puzzle, something I like and start it. Maybe I will even have it framed.

I remember doing puzzles or trying to with my grandma when I was younger. I was always frustrated by them but now I enjoy them more. I don't do them now except if one of the kids wants to.

Thats the way it is with me also. I don't bother anymore. Unless my daughter want to build one. Then I will sit and help her.

I love puzzles, but don't do them enough myself (we have tons of jigsaw kinds for the kids - and they do those online ones too). I used to be a pro at word type puzzles, like word searches, unscrambling words, creating words out of certain letters - but I haven't done them at all lately!

They are challenging for sure. And I like that part of them. But what happens after I start one is that I wind up getting somewhat stressed. That's when I stop.

I am sure that this is a stress buster or relaxer for you to do. I did puzzles as a young person but haven't done one in years! Glad that it makes you happy!

They make me happy. But I haven't done one in years. I think right now I rather be online doing my thing here on MyLot.
