Exploring the Unique World of Wasgij Puzzles

Are you familiar with the Wasgij puzzle range? If not, you're in for a delightful surprise! Wasgij puzzles, uniquely named as 'jigsaw' spelled backward, offer a fresh and creative twist on the traditional jigsaw puzzle. Unlike standard puzzles, where you simply recreate the image on the box, Wasgij puzzles challenge you to think outside the box - quite literally. The image you're tasked to complete is different from the one displayed on the box, calling for a healthy dose of imagination and deduction.

Crafted first by Jumbo Games in 1997, Wasgij puzzles have climbed the ladder to become the most popular puzzle range in the UK. They have evolved, introducing several fascinating variations to the original concept. Each series brings a new flavour to the puzzle-solving experience:

  • Wasgij Original: Here, you're invited to a brain-teasing adventure. You need to embody a character from the puzzle's box image and imagine what they see. This perspective is your actual puzzle. For example, in the 'Celebrity Chief Chef' jigsaw, your task is to deduce what the Health and Safety Manager is witnessing and puzzle that scene together.

  • Wasgij Destiny: This series takes you on a journey through time. You must visualize how the characters and scenes from the original image would transform in the modern world. It's like being a time traveller, piecing together a future that springs from the past.

  • Wasgij Mystery: In this intriguing series, your goal is to predict the future. Look at the scene on the box and use clues to figure out what will happen to these characters in the next few moments. It's a test of your predictive powers and attention to detail.
