Create a Jigsaw Out of Your Picture 

Whether you’re near or far, a digital puzzle can bring you and your loved ones closer together. Consider creating a jigsaw puzzle online. Tools like PuzzleMe can help you achieve exactly this. 

Here’s how you can get started with your own digital puzzle journey with PuzzleMe.

Step 1: Open the PuzzleMe Dashboard 

Once you’re on the PuzzleMe Dashboard, navigate towards the new game button 

Step 2: Generating a new game 

Once you have selected the button a menu should appear, here, pick jigsaw 

Step 3: Creating the jigsaw 

Your new game will need a name. Enter a title under new title, follow through to the jigsaw options panel and enter your puzzle details–which includes entering an image URL and the number of rows. Then, click create game and you’re good to go!

If the receiver of your digital puzzle is somewhat of a wordsmith, consider creating a crossword or word search instead. Here are some options you can choose from:

  • Crossword: The clues could be centered around some cherished memories you share, needless to say, the creativity with these tools is endless. 
  • Word Search: Here you could use clues from your life as the target words, therefore making it more personalized.

Going beyond presents: How else you can use puzzles

That being said, puzzles aren’t just for birthdays and anniversaries too. Here are some other ways you could utilize puzzles:

  • Games for Hiring: If you run a business, puzzles could be a great way to measure quick problem solving abilities of new hires. Their use is well documented in the industry for hiring purposes. 
  • Engaging your audience: Perhaps the most useful is their use in the engagement space. It can be a great way to learn more about your audience. Say you run a fashion business, you could use a jigsaw on your platform to promote a new launch or a high-value product. 
  • Games for Education: Rather than encouraging students to learn the periodic table using dated methods like pneumonics or songs, a teacher could simply convert the grid into a jigsaw puzzle that needs to be put back together. See, for example, this jigsaw puzzle a teacher created on PuzzleMe. 

Digital puzzles are adaptable enough to be on a platform of your choice, so regardless of whether your target audience is on mobile or the web, there is a format that could work for them. 

So what will you use puzzles for? Let us know! Happy puzzling.
