I was first introduced to the concept of Wasgij jigsaws by my ex-MIL a few years ago. She’s a master of them, and persuaded me that I really should give them a try. Well it wasn’t long before she’d got me hooked too and we regularly swap puzzles to try out. I’ve just completed the new Wasgij Destiny 18 Fast Food Frenzy! 1000 piece puzzle and I know she’ll be itching to work it out for herself soon.
The Wasgij range of jigsaw puzzles from Jumbo Games are very different from conventional puzzles. What you see on the lid is not the puzzle you will be making. There are a number of different collections within the range, and with the Destiny collection you are bringing the original scene from one time period to another.
The lid of the Wasgij Destiny 18 Fast Food Frenzy! shows us a scene from 1958, where families are enjoying afternoon tea in a popular restaurant. It’s decorated in an art deco theme and all the staff are wearing traditional uniforms from the era.
To complete the Wasgij Destiny 18 Fast Food Frenzy! you need to bring that scene into the 21st century and imagine where a family might go to now, what it would look like and what the staff would wear. Sounds easy?
Once you’ve completed the edges for the puzzle it really is a case of putting the lid to one side and figuring out the scene for yourself. I always try to find areas with lots of the same pattern or writing to get me started, and don’t worry too much about where they are actually placed.
Before long the new story of this puzzle starts to make shape, you find characters sitting at the same table years later, and the restaurant has definitely changed.
These puzzles are always full of fun details to catch the eye and are great fun to complete.
You can even find a chip-o-matic machine churning potatoes into chips.
I’m a big fan of these puzzles and you rarely remember all the details of the new scene, so they can be completed over and over again. In fact Argos are currently running a promotion on all Wasgij puzzles, they are running ‘2for£15’, making them an even bigger bargain.
Personally I think I’d rather be stuck in 1958 than in the 2018 burger bar! What do you think?
