Puzzle is a very popular game not only for young children, but also has an irresistible appeal to even adults. The rules of this game are simple: You will have to find the pieces (usually square or rectangular) to fit together to create a reasonable, meaningful overall picture, often printed on packaging or in instruction book. The puzzles usually have different sizes and the number of pieces, the more difficult the puzzle.
Today, this game has a lot of unique variations to increase the challenge as well as the patience of the player. Recently, Nervous System has launched a product called Herding Cats – a super cute, super creative wooden puzzle that is especially suitable for cat lovers, and most importantly, extremely difficult. .
This cat jigsaw broke the traditional style of a regular jigsaw puzzle when the pieces were designed in various positions of the “boss”.
There are 2 differences in this puzzle. First, the overall picture is no longer a rectangular or square frame, but an image of a cat “boss”. And second, all the small pieces have been removed, including many cats of different sizes and postures. This will take players a lot of time to find the matching pieces.
It is known that a set of ordinary Herding Cats will consist of 224 different pieces. Anne Sullivan, the main designer behind this 1-on-2 project, said: “We have cat pieces of all sizes and sizes, and the ruffled “boss” is also available without any hairs. They may be sleeping, bending, running, struggling in the bath, and basically doing all the cute poses that a cat can do. Although there are 224 pieces, there are only 43 “cats” that we designed”.
The complexity and detail of each piece will surely make players scratch their heads because they fit forever and fail.
In addition, to help players not be annoyed by the incomplete queue, Nervous System also released a larger sized version, including 114 pieces. These pieces are about 1.8 times larger than the above version and may somewhat reduce the difficulty of this unique puzzle. Reportedly, the shape of each “cat graft” has been redesigned based on real photos that the Nervous System received on Twitter.
Nervous System also launched a larger version to reduce the difficulty for players.
Currently, this cat puzzle is being sold on Official website of Nervous System for 75 USD (1.7 million) for both versions.
