Lindsey bought me a Batman puzzle for Christmas. I love puzzles. Unfortunately, I have not really had anywhere to put one together the last few years in our apartment. Now though, in our own home, I could set one up in the dining room. I bought a three part poster board so that if it took me a long time, I could move the puzzle upstairs if someone was coming over.
Fortunately though, it only took me a few days. I started on the day after Christmas when I came home from work, this was how far I made it.
I started with the edge, which is pretty much what everyone does. Then I started with the different colors. Allow me to explain. I just started taking all of the colors that were unique to one section, such as the odd green in the upper left, or the giant yellow Bat-symbol up top. Once those came together, then the bottom part started falling into place.
Once the bottom was finished, I worked my way up. The cape and the boots were the next parts, since they were a unique blue, plus most of them have a black edge mixed with blue. Once all of that was finished came the hardest part. The gray. So much of the gray was just solid gray pieces and eventually I just had to make different piles of pieces and try each one in all of the possible spots. I finished it on New Year’s Eve, so it only took me about five days. I look forward to my next puzzle.
