This was fun, and some serious 80’s nostalgia. While this seems to be an arcade version, Pac-Man was also available for home computers (probably the Commodore 64), and while I didn’t play much (that was more my brother’s thing), I can certainly remember the infuriating music (if that’s the right word) that accompanied the game. I’m sure you can find the sound online, but I don’t recommend you go looking for it. I definitely won’t 🙂
I’m back in Helsinki, and I finished the puzzle that I started before my Easter break. Another Kaj Stenvall duck image, but this one wasn’t as much fun as the previous one. The cut is extremely boring, with only the basic piece shape with two tabs opposite, and I also managed to place some pieces wrong. I really hate it when I have to go back and take apart pieces that I already placed. Anyway, this should be the last of my Stenvalls with this boring cut. I’ve actually seen a photo of this puzzle, completed, with a different cut and some variety in piece shapes. I must say, I’m at least glad it was this puzzle, and not the white one that had the bad cut 🙂
While the quality was, of course, great, I somehow found this just moderately entertaining, but I’m not exactly sure why. I definitely found the “pixie dust” annoying 🙂 I take my hat off to everyone who completed the 4000-piece version in the 40 000-piece disney collage, that must have been difficult!
I’ve seen paintings by Canadian artist Franklin Carmichael as puzzles, but always decided they were too difficult. Well, a collage makes things a lot easier, and this was a lovely puzzle. Love the colours!
Fun image that turned out a bit easier than I had expected. I thought I would have to look at the box quite a lot, but that wasn’t the case this time.
Lots of dogs looked like their owners:
There’s a royal visitor! I already noticed that the old lady wore a style very similar to what queen Elizabeth does, and the dog looking like a (very naughty) corgi and having a crown on its back clinched it.
I managed to find a Buffalo puzzle! I bought it used, and unfortunately, I forgot to ask the seller where she got it. Buffalo puzzles are not usually available in Finland, and this is only my second.
I was expecting this to be quite difficult because of the many white ColaCola texts against a red background. It wasn’t the easiest puzzle I’ve ever done, but when I got to the white-on-red texts (I did those last), I found it was possible to pick out the pieces for a particular logo.
I really liked this puzzle, and I actually also like coke – too bad you can’t get a bottle for 5 cents anymore 🙂
