The Patchwork Amoeba puzzle is one of the most challenging jigsaw puzzles in our shop. There are only 70 birchwood pieces but their amoeba-like shapes make them extremely difficult to orient correctly. Plus, each piece is cut independently, resulting in a patchwork effect. Since the wood grain is not continuous across the puzzle, it can't be used as a hint to help assembly. However, when you do find the proper positioning, the intricate teeth of the pieces almost seem to zipper together. A very satisfying puzzle for jigsaw fans seeking a modern challenge.
