thanks. two reasons i broke 20 mins this time:

1. i really, really know that cover, mwhaha. i loved the album so much when it came out that i wanted to live in that cover. woods, a fire, fall weather, a dream of mine growin up in new orleans.

and

2. i've gotten faster with practice. i keep the puzzle site's tab open. everyday i do a puzzle there, usually a natural scenery photo or art. i put some atmo music on the phones and do it, when i wanna kinda unwind and de-stress. it's relaxing to me. like a sunday crossword. the more you do it, the easier it is to peg the patterns.

17:41 for the Tull.



I'm not sure knowing the album helps that much, it's more about matching colours and shapes.



I asked my daughter to try it and she completed in 11:24, despite not (as far as I know) having ever seen the album cover. She is a bit of a jigsaw puzzle whizz and when we're doing a puzzle as a family probably connects pieces in a ratio of about 7:1 compared to my wife or self.



Have been enjoying the site, and having been working mainly through puzzles with cows or generally farming scenes.

Nope, the jolly big one on the computer.

It has roughly the same number of pieces on the phone version, obviously smaller and a lot more fiddly.

I did it in 7:24 just before, familiarity breeds etc.

Did you have a crack at the Go2 puzzle I posted?

I've never seen the cover before (or heard of the album) so I was flying blind.

A little bit quicker than the title track but just enough time to play "Paradise By..."
