Jigzone

I have already written a few hubs about jigsaw puzzles, but this time I will only cover puzzles that are free, online and for adults. Puzzles for children will be the subject matter of another hub later on. I have tried the puzzle sites I am presenting here and some of are even great favorites of mine, so I am including their logos, so you can recognize them easily when you see them.
Jigzone is a well established site and I have been using it for years! I like their selection of themes, so I even use their pictures to embed in my Daily Journal, just to add a picture to what otherwise would be just plain text.
The Jigzone level of difficulty ranges from a 6 piece cut, to 247 pieces, which can be quite challenging. Jigzone publishes pictures daily and one can even embed them into web pages or blogs. One can also upload pictures to turn them into jigsaw puzzles and one can also send pictures as postcards. Their picture gallery contains thousands of images in different themes.
They is also a Jigzone Shop, which sells a huge range of classic and 3-D jigsaw puzzles up to 18000 pieces, as well as jigsaw puzzles on CD's and accessories. They sell jigsaw puzzles by brand, piece size, theme and artist.

Jigidi

I am not even sure how to pronounce the name, but Jigidi, is surely one of my favourite puzzle sites! I like their theme selection and they always seem to have one that will suit my fancy, as far as piece numbers and topic. I also like that one can bookmark puzzles, so one can continue solving them at some other time.
This is a very creative site that is being constantly improved. They now present their puzzles in two columns of eight images each and it continues going for many pages (I went up to page 50 and there were more!) They first present the title of each puzzle, number of pieces and size, plus author, date created and category. One has the option to solve the puzzle, or to bookmark it, to continue it at a later time. It is a good idea to sign in, as then one's name can appear amongst the names of those solving a puzzle. One can also click on the names of people with puzzles that were enjoyable.

Those albums have hundreds of jigsaw puzzles for people to explore them all or play at will. One can also bookmark the site, so as to check their Puzzle of the Day every single day! Clicking the button at the lower-right corner allows you to see the puzzle fullscreen too.

This is a site that looks quite simple and childish, but it is not really! It does have music, but it also offers a variety of online games, including jigsaw puzzles. They come in a variety of difficulties, ranging from easy (12 pieces), to medium (48), hard (108) and expert (192). They do have other parts, but one must access them by looking below at the horizontal. Those are quite challenging and they have a big selection too!

I finished doing this hub yesterday, but this afternoon I could not resist visiting this other free online jigsaw puzzle website! I found a colorful puzzle about mixed candy and I could almost savor those lovely sweets in my mouth! They had three degrees of difficulty: easy with 16 pieces, medium with 49 and hard with 81 pieces! I will be back here again soon, as I could see that they had several other interesting puzzles!

Long live Jigsaw Puzzles!

It is true that jigsaw puzzles are like a different zone, world, or planet and one can even add them to one's initials! They can also get one to be crazy about them and it is just lovely to receive jigsaw puzzles as presents for birthdays, Christmas, or anniversaries!
