My guests checking out today left a gift of a 1,000 piece puzzle of a popular local attraction. The box says it measures 14 inches by 39 inches. The only flat surface I have is the dining room table. I am considering donating it to Goodwill store.
Now if people typically put a 1,000 piece puzzle together over a few hours on a rainy day, then I will keep it. But I purposely tossed any games that require all pieces…Ex - Scrabble. I inherited it and counting all letter pieces…at least one was missing. I know some say they would be okay with it. But, I also know some die hard players who would not be okay with spending two hours in competition, and then the beloved “blank tile” is missing. I even read a review once of a family complaining that the Scrabble game was missing tiles.
I made the decision to provide family games where missing pieces are not necessary to play the game. So, how quickly can you put together this puzzle? I either want to gift to a guest who wants to take it away, or keep if people can really put this together in an afternoon.
Then…how many of you puzzle people would care if pieces are missing?
