Did you do the lizard shapes, or change it? I like the lizards.

I did the lizard shapes. I'm rather fond of those shapes as well

I always change to the 100 piece classic. I methodically sort the two different shapes to their own sides, leaving the edge pieces in the middle. Only then do I start putting the puzzle together. As I am writing this, I am thinking how I really am OCD, aren't I?

Is that the round/elongated round shapes? If so yes, I have. Its a little odd to work with them but a good challenge.

Thanks for starting this thread MA I've enjoyed it quite a bit.

I love jigsaw puzzles, and have been going to Jigzone for a long time. It's something I am very good at, so I like to be challenged.

Last night, I took on the hardest one I could configure, and it really kicked my butt.

Try it. I was overwhelmed, I swear. Oh, you have to set it to 240 classic to get the full impact.

OK, I moved out of my comfort zone and tried both lizards and birds. I was on my Ipad, and accidentally hit the back key when I was almost through with the lizards so I don't know how well I was doing. With the birds I know that I was at least 50% over the average time.

I did figure out that on the Ipad I can get part of the puzzle together, then drag the completed part over the other pieces and get some to stick. Shuffle the pieces and repeat. At least it got me through it.
