What is Perplex Puzzle?

Perplex puzzle

If you're into puzzles and enjoy spending time problem solving, then Perplex Puzzle is for you. Perplex Puzzle is a 1000 piece rectangular jigsaw puzzle measuring 12 x 16.5 inches but instead of having the usual photo or image on it to aid assembly, Perplex Puzzle has no photo nor image but is completely blank.

To make it even more "perplexing", the back of each puzzle piece is blank too so you will have to work out which is the front and which is the back adding to the difficulty level of this puzzle.

The final difficulty factor added into the Perplex Puzzle is the size of each piece. Each piece measure approximately 1 cm square and each piece is only slightly different from each other meaning there are many similar looking pieces. Perplex Puzzle is sure to keep you and your family and friends occupied for days.

So if you're not interested in putting a blank white puzzle together, no problem. We have 6 colors for you to choose from namely, blue, red, black, white, yellow and green. So choose your favorite color or your least favorite color if you prefer an even bigger challenge and you're off.

Why Perplex Puzzle?

We developed this puzzle as we absolutely love jigsaw puzzles. That's why we started, a site to easily create puzzles online before going to print. As with every image puzzle, you can learn a certain strategy so that the more puzzles you put together, the better and faster you get at them. We wanted to make the ultimate jigsaw puzzle challenge and what's more challenging than a plain colored puzzle, both front and back, with small pieces which are similar to each other? This puzzle is sure to provide substantial entertainment over a period of time to kids and adults alike. What's more, once you are able to complete the puzzle, the satisfaction experienced will be somewhat much higher than a regular jigsaw puzzle. So why not give it a try or send it to your friends and family as a thoughtful gift with a gimmick.
