Tiki Time Puzzle

Frankly I thought the Tiki Time puzzle sign would be much easier than it turned out to be but I enjoyed the challenge. I can easily highly recommend this great quality puzzle.

The Tiki Time puzzle by Artist, Linda Tillman is a variated collage type image that sure looks terrific when assembled. I had never heard of Tiki Time so I searched it on the internet. So Wikipedia explains it like this,

"Tiki culture is a motif of exotically decorated bars and restaurants catering to an escapist longing for travel to tropical regions of the South Pacific. ... Tiki culture changed over time, influenced by World War II and the firsthand exposure hundreds of thousands of American servicemen gained during that conflict."

Now the term Tiki Time has found its way into big marketing such as Tiki Time drinks, tourisms and stores.

Tiki Time 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. 

The border was not difficult at all even with the tan colour all the way around the edges as sometimes that situation can be testy, especially in black or white.

Frankly I thought the Tiki Time puzzle sign would be much easier than it turned out to be but I enjoyed the challenge. That said, most of the rest of the images came together as being built in clumps on the side then adding the tan color border throughout the image. Once the clumps were placed strategically onto the board roughly where they belonged, the pieces began to fall into place very easily.

Tiki Time Puzzle Comments

Here' some nice close up photos of the Tiki Time puzzle to show off the image better and the quality of the pieces. The cut was really great too! All the fun details are summer beach related.

Hennessy jigsaw puzzles are just as good quality as any of the other major brands.  Seeing the many summer scenes in this Tiki Time puzzle sure captures the Tiki Time culture which is trending lately.  I can easily highly recommend this puzzle.

I have also had the pleasure of assembling the Hennessy World jigsaw puzzle and Mid Century Modern
