I've done the three O ones, thanks. The Frazzle one didn't take as long as I anticipated, though I had to leave the white border until last. Thankfully it wasn't like a jigsaw my mum gave me that has a lot of blue sky and all identically shaped pieces - I got that soon after breaking my patella in 2017 and it's been sitting unfinished on the floor in the study ever since (although by 'floor' I mean on a folded up table of Tash's that she now hasn't been able to use for over two years).

I have added another UWA with 144 pieces - Enjoy. I took me 88minutes, but then I am old and slow!

w00t! Will save it for after I clean out the spa else I'll never get it done.

Hmm yes those UWA pieces are tiny, could take a while. Got stuck with Frazzle because I was able to use the course to set the previous two puzzles but couldn't see the CP numbers or lines on the Frazzle one.

Well... I finished it eventually - much harder with no courses, legend, title or anything. Can't really call it an orienteering map with all the details missing!

I think some of the pieces were missing on mine, hence why I took so long (I had to go and find them).

I'm (easily) confused - are these real or virtual jigsaw puzzles?

Who's to say what's real?

@jennycas totally real in a virtual world.

@tRicky how long?

Too long, 108 minutes and that's coming from someone who should know the layout of the place. Sadly I was able to put the white pieces in place before most of the colourful parts (aside from the big oval in the middle and all the water features).

Ooh goody! Aoife doesn’t normally do borders first, but did so for Frazzle? That brain just does everything opposite to mine!

I did the Frazzle border last so I could match up the shapes but I did the UWA border midway through the puzzle because all the colours in the middle had me stumped.
