Jigsaw Puzzle With a Twist

Updated on September 29, 2014

Wasgij Puzzles - Jigsaw Puzzle With a Twist

Wasgij Puzzles add a fun twist to the traditional jigsaw puzzle experience. The final image on the Wasgij is a puzzling mystery. Your mission is to craft the puzzle based on clues that are provided because the final outcome is a completely different fun-filled perspective from the picture provided on the box.

We discovered Wasgij puzzles by accident and I'm so glad we did. It is by far the most fun I've ever had in putting puzzles together. I quickly went back to the store to purchase other editions of the Wasgij puzzles, but to my great disappointment, they were all out of stock with no knowledge of whether or not they would get any more.

Fast forward a few years, after keeping my eyes open for more Wasgij puzzles at every puzzle store I entered, I finally found some. Though I felt they were a little on the expensive side, I grabbed a couple of them anyway. Then it dawned on me that I could use my smart phone to compare the prices on Amazon.com. I found that I could save several dollars per puzzle by purchasing the exact same puzzles on Amazon and if I bought at least 2 puzzles, they would be shipped right to my door at no extra cost.

The Ravensburger Wasgij puzzles are the perfect size. Each with 1000 pieces that are precisely cut to a size and thickness that makes them easy to work with. They're not too small - they're not too large. These are excellent puzzles.

Many More Wasgij Puzzles From Ravensburger

There are so many more Ravensburger Wasgij puzzles available to choose from. Here is a partial selection of the many more options - all of them with a unique twist. Each of these puzzles provide hours of challenge and enjoyment for you and your family.

Wasgij Destiny: Picnic Time - 1000 Pieces

When you view the picture on the front of the box, you aren't seeing the final image. They give you a clue for what the finished puzzle will appear as. When you peer into the crystal ball, you will see what is in the destiny for the characters on the box image. The completed puzzle shows that destiny. You will enjoy making this puzzle and revealing the future for this picnicking couple.

Wasgij Mystery: Camping Commotion

Take a look at the Whimsical image on the front of the box. That won't be the same image revealed on the final completed puzzle. It's a mystery as to how the characters in the picture are going to avoid their fate. If you take a look through the spyglass, you will see a clue that will help you to find out. Only by assembling the puzzle, will you get the full picture of what the mystery is that lies ahead for the characters on the box image.

Ravensburger WASGIJ 1000 Piece Puzzle Puzzle: Soccer Madness

Why all the commotion with amongst all the characters on the picture on the front of the puzzle box? You'll have to make the puzzle to see. The clue for what you will find in the final image on the completed puzzle is that it is the view of one of the characters on the box. If you can imagine what they are seeing, you will know what the completed puzzle reveals. Enjoy making this puzzle to open up that view and find out what the character sees.

High Tide - A Wasgij Original 1000 Piece Puzzle

High Tide is the first Wasgij Puzzle that I made. It is the one that got me hooked on these puzzles. The image on the box doesn't depict the image of the completed puzzle. As you work on putting the puzzle together, you begin to reveal what one of the characters in the box image is seeing. It may come as quite a surprise, but is sure to become loads of fun for you and your family.

The video below gives a good explanation of Wasgij puzzles and how they work.
