Love this All Hallows Eve jigsaw puzzle mostly for the image as it appears to be another one of those replicated images made by the lower end over-seas manufacturers with the 'business' address in Ontario, Canada. :( That said, turns out there is more than one puzzle image titled All Hallows Eve Amazon Link

I did not do my usual sorting routine with this one. In fact, I was so disappointed about the condition of this puzzle that I contemplated on not even assembling it. I could see from the cut of the pieces that it would be VERY challenging to put together as one piece would likely fit into 100 different places. Then I seen the poster has the letters on the back and decided that this puzzle would best be assembled using the 'letter' pattern and be completed by the 6th's sections of A, B, C, D, E, and F. That made me decide I would just get it done and it actually added a bit of fun to the 'dire' situation.
That said, you can see below how easily the flat thin pieces easily stacked upon one another and I had to handle them very carefully. Below you can see 5 sections of the 6 sections of letters that are on the back of the puzzle.
The following 4 images share some closeup images which looks better than the image on the Halloween House. I have decided to keep this one as I really do like the image so bonding it with wide clear packing tape on the back gave it some stability. It actually looks quite good!
Of course I am not going recommend this All Hallows Eve Jigsaw Puzzle as I am not even sure where it comes from. I am disappointed that I was duped by the Ontario Canada address as I actually thought it was being sold by a private seller on community market platform. Goes to show how extremely careful we have to be and stay with the well known Companies....however I have heard even those companies are experiencing 'knock-off' situations too...my word? Online shopping is headed in a bad direction :( That said, I have to admit the only fun part of this puzzle was assembling it by using the letter codes on the back and I did it in speedy time too!
