Globetrotters Puzzle


The Globetrotters puzzle is a huge collage of wonderful images from around the world.  I certainly felt like I was on tour and tried to figure out where all these places were....of course I knew of some places but there are many I did not. There are several puzzles in this series where the image is based on a specific country such as Canada, USA, China etc.

Globetrotters Puzzle 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. 

Instead of leaving the edge border pieces in a pile I laid them out onto a foam board so it made it a tad easier when starting the border. It was not too difficult to assemble the border.

As you can see above, the Globetrotters puzzle takes up 4 foam boards plus another portion for the edge pieces. Then it was a matter of assembling the most outstanding patches of colors and placing them images approximately into the correct area on the puzzle. Once that was accomplished, it was only a matter of placing the white-outline-picture-borders int othe correct place. 

These images share the good quality of the Eurographics jigsaw puzzle. It is really nice to see these images in the larger size so you get a better view as taking photos of a 2000 piece puzzle is rather tricky and the images tend to blend. You can see the great quality of the images, the grid-like cut pattern and I am pleased to say the cut was not loose so I could easily move the sections into place. 

Eurographics Globetrotters World Jigsaw Puzzle is an image in a Series that I have been hoping to assemble for some time now. I have seen these image-types several times in the jigsaw puzzle Groups and then noted that Eurographics started to sell them as well. There are 12 Globetrotters puzzle images in this series!

I highly recommend trying these Eurographics jigsaw puzzles. This one was a real delightful experience and I look forward to assembling more. That said, I have also had the pleasure of assembling several other Eurographic puzzle but two of my FAVES are the Holiday Cats and Halloween Pets
