Jenny got this one for me last Christmas and we just haven’t gotten to it until now. There is a 500-piece version (most of the Rock Saws puzzles are 500 pieces) but this is the newer 1000-piece variant.
I get the feeling that this will drive us nuts. There is a lot of water in that image and I can see it being really difficult to get a handle on which pieces go where short of brute forcing it.
Aside from that, I have no expectations about this puzzle. This is one of the most iconic album covers of all time. Whether or not it makes for a good puzzle is kind of irrelevant. I hope it ends up being fun, of course, but it was never intended to be a puzzle so it’s not like we can be disappointed if it doesn’t work out.
Note: We use the images from this blog in our social media feeds so we’ve applied (and will probably continue to apply) a bit of a blur when necessary so no overzealous algorithms decide we’re violating anyone’s terms of service. Better to be safe than sorry.
