Calling all jigsaw puzzle fanatics out there

Jigsaw Puzzle-A-Thon

Are you a puzzle fanatic? 
Does your table constantly have an ongoing puzzle on it?
Are you seeking a new challenge?

Or perhaps you’re someone that hasn’t really appreciated puzzles?
Perhaps the only time you made puzzles was when you were a child?
Surely puzzles aren’t that tough right?
Puzzles are pretty straight forward aren’t they?

Whatever you feel about puzzles, have we got a challenge for you!

How long do you think it would take to complete a 1000 piece puzzle in one sitting?

According to PuzzleWarehouse.com it takes 10-24 hours to complete a 1000 piece puzzle depending on the skill level of the person completing it. 

There doesn’t appear to be any record as to what the fastest time to complete a 1000 piece puzzle as an individual. Could you beat 10 hours though?

If you would like to do this puzzle as a team of 2, then the current record is 1:01:29 hours set in 1986.

How to set up the Jigsaw Puzzle-A-Thon Challenge in 4 easy steps:

  1. Choose a 1000 piece puzzle you would like to complete. Or contact us to discuss having a Communicare custom built puzzle or other puzzle alternatives.
  2. Set up a Virgin Money Giving page with a Financial Goal.
  3. Share your challenge with friends, family and colleagues and ask them to sponsor you. You could encourage people to donate more the quicker you finish the puzzle. (E.g. In under an 1 hour £30, under two hours £27, under 3 hours £24 etc…)
  4. On the day make sure you have plenty of snacks and refreshments at hand. Why not also order a cheeky take-away to save needing to cook. You deserve it!
