THE JOURNEY SO FAR IN PICTURES
Welcome to the brief story of how this all started!
The summer of 2020 was my least favorite summer ever and I bet you could guess why (*cough* covid!). While boredom and even depression set in and people lost ideas on how to keep their minds out of the mental slouch that followed, putting together jigsaw puzzles really saved the day for my in-laws and me. It also provided an opportunity to unplug and escape from the daily non-stop information overload we encountered. In short, putting puzzles together played a vital role to our mental and even physical health. A jigsaw puzzle requires your full attention and therein lies the magic. Everyone from tweens and teens to millennials and overworked parents to seniors are returning to this quiet pastime of childhood.
SA'A PUZZLE was created to boost the fun that could be had in putting puzzles together. In this game, each player vies to be the first to fit fifteen puzzle tiles into a puzzle board. Each board has five images and it takes three tiles to complete an image. The inclusion of components such as the Action Tiles triggers constant change in the probability of the outcomes making this typically simple activity a bit more enthralling and complex. The game is played for multiple rounds and points are tallied after each round. The first player to reach the winning points wins the game. So if you fail to do well in the first round, you may have better luck in subsequent rounds!
What more? The tension could be heightened by incorporating additional stakes to the rules! SA'A PUZZLE can be played by a minimum of two players and a maximum of five players. A game of two players requires two boards and a minimum of 10 Action Tiles; while a game of five players requires 5 boards and 25 Action Tiles.
