WHAT IS A
JIGSAW PUZZLE COMPETITION?

A jigsaw puzzle competition typically consists of individuals and teams that compete against one another putting a puzzle together. Whoever completes their puzzle first wins! Typically, these events include multiple rounds to determine the ultimate winner, but however, you choose to set up the competition is up to you.

THE BASICS

  • Each team receives the same puzzle
  • No one gets to see the puzzle until the timer begins – the puzzle boxes are placed face down before the competition starts
  • Individuals or teams try to put the puzzle together the fastest
  • Competitions are a specified amount of time; if there is no declared winner by the end of the time limit, the winner is chosen by their remaining number of loose pieces
  • In the event of a tie, individuals or teams can be given an additional five minutes to work on the puzzle
  • There are no devices or outside assistance permitted while working on a puzzle
  • Two moderators help with the event along with 4-6 timers that will be walking around the contest floor watching the teams for timing reasons.
  • Individuals and teams are not allowed to distract or approach team tables when the competition is in progress
