The Baffler Jigsaw Puzzle
Challenging puzzles with odd-shaped pieces and abstract designs.
The Baffler is a unique twist on the traditional jigsaw puzzle. Instead of using a recognizable image with distinct subject areas, the Baffler's designs are abstract. Furthermore, each piece is a single color and oddly shaped. The Baffler's puzzle tray provides you with your only clues for beginning the jigsaw.
All three puzzles are 7.5 inches square and range in piece count from 67 to 78. Despite the relatively small number of pieces, each Baffler will take 30-45 minutes to solve. Unlike a traditional jigsaw puzzle, the Baffler is meant to be solved over and over.
Available in three styles: The Nonagon, the Spiral of Archimedes, and the Bindu Truss.

A clever twist on traditional jigsaw puzzles
Jigsaw puzzles are typically square and the pieces are all fairly similar in shape. The completed puzzle is normally a recognizable image with distinct subject areas (sky, trees, lake, 5-pound gummy bear).
The Baffler Puzzle chucks those conventions out the window. Its pieces are oddly shaped and the completed image is an abstract design without any distinct subject areas. Baffling, indeed!
Unique shapes + no overlapping images = baffling
The Baffler's pieces feature unique and non-traditional shapes. This makes finding two pieces that fit together much more challenging than your run-of-the-mill jigsaw puzzle.
In addition, no part of the final image overlaps onto more than one piece. So, you can't work on the "sky section" of the puzzle. The only clue provided is the shape of the board.
Think you're Mensa material? Try solving the puzzle without the board. You may go insane.
Save for later without tying up your dining room table
Jigsaw puzzles can be tons of fun. However, they can sometimes take weeks to complete. It's certainly frustrating to lose use of your dining room table because your wife is still knee-deep in that 1500-piece "polar bears playing in a snow storm" puzzle.
While the Baffler Puzzle won't take you weeks to complete, its built-in board makes it easy to move even when in-progress.
Choose from 3 puzzle styles
The Baffler is available in the following styles: The Nonagon (67 pieces), The Spiral of Archimedes (69 pieces), and the Bindu Truss (78 pieces).
