Perfect minus 1
I adore this game. All the joys of picture puzzles but you don't have to dedicate forever a table in your house.
I usually have 3 or 4 open at the same time, it eases the strain on your eyes. It has all the features you could want, pick from several 'shape types', the number of pieces, the size of the pieces the percentage of 'odd' pieces. There are virtual trays where you can collect a working set, by color or edges or types. If you a 'cheater', you can let the machine sort, you can rearrange pieces to the edge or in a grid, there is a 'ghost' image AND you can remove it or select how bold or dim it is. Yes you can use your own pictures, but I probably never will, because, after all, when I've played them all, I can go back and play the same ones with different shaped pieces or a different number of pieces, etc.
Cheats: There is cheat where you can find the match for a piece. The only cheat I've ever used, because my eyes are not the greatest is the one that puts all the pieces right side up and if the picture is very 'busy' #like small leaves# I sometimes use that after I've placed all the ones I can see.
SO, you ask, what it the 'minus one'? Sometimes certain pieces are slightly distorted?? You look at a piece, you notice the length of the neck, the shape of the point, it's close, but you're sure it will not fit what looks like an almost match... and it FITS, or the reverse. Don't get me wrong, this is not the usual 'I'm sure this piece does or doesn't go there... I'm really talking too different. Perhaps they are all like that#I haven't played the other puzzle games I own, long enough to know_. Perhaps it it a function of being on a screen, pixels, etc., but it's definitely often.BUT it's not so awful that I'd stop playing!! I've just gotten used to 'try it anyway' if it's close.
I HUGELY RECOMMEND THIS GAME. ALL SKILL LEVELS, ALL AGES

The instructions are poor, Never could get pieces to rotate. Much needed simplicity in movement of puzzle pieces.
