Ultimate challenge for puzzle masochists
Pop artist Keith Haring provides the canvas for the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle. Not only is Haring's work some of the most popular of the 20th century, but its flat shading and limited color palette makes for an incredibly challenging puzzle.
When you finally place the final piece of this masterpiece, you'll have created a puzzle over 6 feet tall (1.8m) and nearly 18 feet wide (5.4m).
Over 40 pounds of pieces!
The World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle is so big that we can measure it by weight! Comprised of over 32,000 pieces, this sucker tips the scales at 42 pounds (19 kg). Please keep in mind that these are standard-size pieces. So, yeah, it's immensely challenging.
So big that it comes with its own dolly!
Ravensburger, the world renowned puzzle manufacturer that created this monster, felt it only appropriate to include a mini dolly to help transport the 42-pound puzzle.
Set aside the next six months
The World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle is a major commitment. But like anything awesome, the reward is two-fold: a gargantuan sense of accomplishment as well as a 110-square foot puzzle featuring Keith Haring masterpieces.
From what we've been told by puzzle aficionados, the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle takes approximately 900 man-hours to complete. That's 112 eight-hour days. So, yeah, you may need to ask for some time off from work to git 'er done.
Look, it comes pre-sorted... Jinx!
In an effort to make the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle remotely manageable, the manufacturers divided the puzzle into eight bags. Each bag contains 4,032 pieces and corresponds to a block of four images within the puzzle.
While this division makes the puzzle slightly easier, you're still dealing with eight 4,032-piece puzzles featuring solid colors, no shading, and a relatively scant number of edge pieces. Oh, and don't forget lots of indecipherable white pieces.
The World's Largest Puzzle is made by world-renowned puzzle manufacturer Ravensburger.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Have you guys finished this puzzle?
Answer: We'd love to tackle this beast, but there's only so many hours in a day and the evil boss won't pay for 900 hours of puzzle-making. So, we decided it's better if we leave the challenge up to you and spend our time making sure you have more awesome stuff to buy and crazy videos to watch.
Question: Where can you work on a puzzle this large?
Answer: Each section (there are eight) is approximately 3 feet by 4.5 feet. So, you really don't need much room until it's time to assemble the finished pieces. We obviously recommend using a puzzle glue after completing each section.
Question: How long will it really take to complete?
Answer: Those who have completed the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle suggest it takes about 900 hours to complete. Honestly, we couldn't dedicate that amount of time to test their finding, so we have to take their word for it.
Because there's no shading and the same colors appear in multiple spots in each section, it's extremely tough. It took us about 2 hours to complete a section about eight inches square. So, good luck!
