The humble jigsaw puzzle is great way to get your thinking hat on, or to simply pass the time. Like all puzzles the jigsaw can provide various degrees in difficulty. Such as a simple jigsaw’s with simple shapes and less pieces, and there are more difficult jigsaw puzzles that take a lot of time and patience to assemble.
The first jigsaw puzzle was invented in 1767 by John Spilsbury, a London engraver in England. For a brief history about the invention of the jigsaw puzzle, click here.
Have a go at putting together a puzzle of one of MOTAT’s historic trams featured below.
How to play:
Use your mouse and left click on any piece on the board, and the piece will follow your mouse. To release a piece, just click again and the piece will stay put. A puzzle piece will snap and stay in position with a piece it belongs to, so keep assembling pieces and you will have completed puzzle in no time. Good Luck!
Hint: Below is the image for the jigsaw, you can use it as a guide for assembling the puzzle.
