Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was not too tricky even though some of the colors were similar.

The pieces with shades of blue and yellow dots would become 'guides' for different areas.

I started off this 1000 piece puzzle in my normal style. I managed to sort with several piles of  color-look-a-likes. Then I really broke down the color boards in good color sections a

I thought the background was going to cause some slow-down but it did not. Then I thought for sure the big Archies letters would do it but that went surprisingly well.

This one is for the older children too and it took about 10 hours to complete.

Comments

The back of the box displays all four images. They are bagged securely inside the sturdy box.

All four puzzle measure the same size, 26.625 x 19.25”, even though the puzzles are available in 500 or 1000 pieces. The following photos shows the difference in the size of the pieces. I have placed a 1000 piece puzzle over the 500 piece puzzle to show how the measurement size is the same.

The pieces are of top quality. The 500 pieces are cut looser than the 1000 pieces. The 500 pieces are like a 'ribbon/grid' cut and the 1000 pieces are cut in the random shape style.

Summary - Can you guess which one was my most favorite? Which one would be your most favorite?

Have you seen the new Riverdale TV Series yet? It is based on the Archie Comic characters and is actually quite good.

For those of you who are wondering - out of all four of these truly entertaining and addicting Cobble Hill Puzzle Company Archie Series I loved the Classic Archie the most!

So if you want a blast from the past or get nostalgic try these charming, relaxing and most satisfying Series of jigsaw puzzles I have experienced so far in my jigsaw puzzle hobby.
