Looking on the Internet for new puzzle sites I passed by my previous domain name PuzzlePassion dot com.

Passion for puzzles dot com as it’s called now, started a few years ago as PuzzlePassion dot com, but due to an offer I could not resist I sold the domain to a Spanish puzzle company called Educa Borras which had a website called PuzzlePasion dot com(with one s).

Educa Borras asked Royce B. McClure to design the artwork that would be used for which is called “Life – The Great Challenge”. Over the last 15 years Royce B. McClure had made over a hundred puzzles of his artwork. During this time Royce B. McClure had received a lot of feedback from puzzlers about what makes a good puzzle: challenging, but not impossible, lots of detail but still making a satisfying overall picture when completed. Most of all they have to be fun to do.

The world’s largest jigsaw puzzle comes in four packets, breaking the art up into four vertical sections that join together to make “Life – The Great Challenge”. Royce B. McClure tried to make each section different enough from the other sections so that you won’t feel that you are doing the same puzzle over and over.

How long will it take to do the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle? Let’s find out. Time yourself then take a photo of the finished puzzle and let them know. They will put your time and photo up on their site and you can see how well you did in comparison with others.

The the world’s largest commercially made jigsaw puzzle is available from Amazon.com. If you like to read more about jigsaw puzzle please read our jigsaw puzzle page. Happy Puzzling!
