Chocolate Themed Wooden Jigsaw Giveaway #42

As regular readers will know, chocolate on this blog comes in many forms. This time it comes in the form of a jigsaw. A wooden Wentworth jigsaw, entitled Decadence, to be precise. The chocolates depicted on the front of the box look decadent indeed. I can’t help but wish that on completion of the jigsaw those tempting looking chocolates would turn into the real thing. Maybe it will, who knows? I haven’t completed the jigsaw yet. In fact, I haven’t even started it. My table is just too cluttered with Christmas stuff at the moment and with the best will in the world, there is no room for a jigsaw. However, it will be clear by Christmas and I am really looking forward to getting stuck in. I love doing jigsaws. My mother loves them too, so once I’ve tackled it successfully, it will be passed over to her to have a go.

This is not a large jigsaw, being only 250 pieces, but it looks to be a tough one with the similar colours and repeating pattern of the chocolates. That’s lucky, as I don’t like my jigsaws to be too easy. It’s also rather a tactile one as the pieces are made of wood and are actually quite chunky but with a pleasingly smooth finish – no splinters to spoil the enjoyment here. The pieces are also wonderfully quirky, or at least some of them are. On sifting through them I found several shapes suitable for a food loving person: a spoon, a fork, cakes and pieces of chocolate to name but a few. I understand there is even a chocolate fountain dripping with chocolate, but I didn’t come across that one. When I first opened the box, I was delighted to see a drawstring cloth bag containing the pieces rather than the inevitable utilitarian and rather annoying plastic. The box itself is sturdy and is not likely to fall apart with a bit of rough handling, not I hasten to add that I would handle my boxes or anything else roughly. There is no doubt about it, this jigsaw is not only a thing of beauty but also of exceptional quality.

Wentworth Wooden Puzzles have been going since 1994 and have earned a name for themselves for both design and execution. Decadence comes in several different sizes, the largest being 1,500 pieces. This 250 piece version retails at Ā£26.95 and would make a fine gift, Christmas or otherwise, for any puzzle lover.

    I love brain teasers in video games, sometimes the clues are obvious (pull the glowing lever), some are classic fourth wall problems (“Enter the code from the CD case” – gamers spent ages looking for a CD case in the game but it was actually written on the cover of the case that the game came in)! I was also brought up on Patience, I think it was my mum’s way of keeping me quiet by throwing me a pack of cards, and I still enjoy games of Patience to this day.
