This is a picture I took at the Ballenberg Farm in Switzerland. I always liked the look in the eyes of this goose, but could never find the right time to use the photo.
Recently, I have discovered JigZone, which allows you to use your own photos and make jigsaw puzzles to play online. The program lets me upload my photo, break the photo into pieces from 20 to 157 and choose different types of cuts for the puzzle.
Picture Story Challenge
Today, you are joining my “focus group.” You will be testing a new feature I want to use on my site called, THE PUZZLE GAME.
I want you to give me feedback on this game so I can decide whether or not to continue it on my site. If you like it, it will become a regular feature.
Therefore, your challenge today is to play The Puzzle Game, which uses the picture of the goose above.
I’ve made this one pretty easy. So, for those of you who fall under the category of “puzzle solvers extraordinaire,” this one may be too easy for you. Have no fear, the puzzles will get more difficult. Remember, I can up go to 157 pieces:~)
Now it’s your turn.
Click on the link below
Then click on the picture of the GOOSE. The puzzle will be loaded and then you can play. Loading time will depend on your computer.
Use your mouse to move the pieces into place. When you get a matching set of puzzle pieces, they will snap together (like they are magnetized).
You can go as fast or as slow you want. If you’d like a bit more of a challenge, look at the bottom and you’ll see a box called “Solve times for this jigsaw puzzle,” which shows your time, the best and the average time. I encourage you to try to beat the best time!
In the comment box, let me know what you think about this game. I need to know things like whether or not it loaded in a decent time, if you liked playing it and why, and if you think I should continue it.
If you are willing, include your time for completing the puzzle so that others can be challenged to try to beat your time. BTW since this is the first puzzle, you get to pick the best score out of TWO tries. I decided you might need at least one trial run:~)
Okay, go for it. Play THE PUZZLE GAME and watch the goose fly into pieces and come back together again!
Have fun, be creative and enjoy:~)
