I've always loved putting together puzzles and hope to share this hobby with my daughter. I think puzzles are a great way to gather together, work cooperatively and in the meantime, strike up a great conversation. Puzzles can be quite a time investment though, and sometimes the hardest part is simply picking a terrific puzzle that you actually WANT to put together.
Thankfully, Hasbro has found a way to solve that dilemma with their newest puzzle creation called Ji Ga Zo. Read on to learn more about a 300-piece puzzle that is as unique as its name!
Ji Ga Zo is a magical 300-piece puzzle which lets you rearrange its pieces again and again into completely different pictures of YOUR CHOOSING! Each puzzle piece has a unique sepia shade to it as well as an icon, which fits together with any other piece. Now, you can quickly and easily create puzzle images of your friends, family or even a pet.
In order to unleash the power of Ji Ga Zo, you need to start with a digital image, a computer and a printer capable of 600 dpi black and white printing. Upload the Ji Ga Zo software onto your computer and then upload your digital image using the software. The software will analyze your picture so as to determine placement of each puzzle piece and will soon build a custom icon map.
Next, arrange the shaded puzzle pieces according to the icon map and then stand back about 5-10 feet from your puzzle creation. Your digital image will now magically spring to life!
I think that the Ji Ga Zo puzzle is a must-have for anyone who loves puzzles or who would like a new twist to the classic 3000-piece landscape variety. I just know that with Ji Ga Zo, I will be able to get my daughter excited about puzzles, for who could resist putting together an image of yourself or your favorite pet?
A Ji Ga Zo puzzle can also be framed and would make an extremely unique gift! Don't want to settle for giving a boring tie or paper weight this Father's Day? How about a framed portrait of Dad Ji Ga Zo style!
