Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.
So, you didn’t think you’d be browsing for jigsaw puzzles in the lead up to summer 2020? Think again.
As much of the world is now resigned to an unprecedented state of lockdown, interest in those “save it for a rainy day” activities appears to be sky-rocketing, no matter the weather.
In fact, the world’s largest puzzle just went on sale for $600 courtesy of Kodak, but lockdown or not we realize a 28.5 feet by 6.25 feet puzzle is a bit ambitious.
Accordingly, we’ve browsed the web for some cool jigsaw puzzles for adults which, upon completion, won’t be a complete eyesore on your coffee table.
Check our selection of time-wasting puzzles below.
Dark Was The Night
Difficulty level: Most of these pieces are only marginally different shades of black or gray and there’s 500 of them, so surely this is not a puzzle for those lacking in patience or appreciation for celestial wonderment.
Oh man, Oh Jeeeze
Difficulty level: Using an image pulled from Rick and Morty Season 4, this 1,000-piece puzzle could take quite a while to complete. As a bonus, the toilet paper reference is pretty on theme for these trying times.
Springfield Line Up
Difficulty level: Experts estimate that a 1,000 piece puzzle could take anywhere from 3 – 10 hours depending on your concentration, and perhaps in this case, your background knowledge of peripheral characters from The Simpsons.
OG Selfie-taker Andy Warhol
Difficulty level: Andy Warhol said that in the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes, which is about a 30th of the time it should take you to complete this polaroid selfie collage.
20 Minutes or Less
Difficulty level: Um, not difficult at all. You can probably attempt this one while absent-mindedly watching Netflix just to give your phone a break.
Difficulty level: At 1,000 pieces and with lots of grainy newspaper segments to complete, this could be quite challenging. As you approach completion the sight of a former newsstand whereby people in crowds used to gather in abundance might hit you with a pang of nostalgia for the old reality.
For Instagram-friendly Completion Pics
Difficulty level: Pretty hard. Don’t gradients kind of hurt your eyes after a while? However, the final result is one of the more aesthetically titillating images we’ve seen, so it’s probably worth it.
Site of Reversible Destiny
Difficulty level: At 250 pieces, this puzzle would be a good start for beginners. The charming image is a depiction of the Site of Reversible Destiny in Yoro Park, Japan, a place where guests can explore the unexpected.
