Rapturous is building platform for Jigsaw puzzles for adults. The approach for the same is divided into 3 sub-parts.
- Jigsaw Puzzles for adults for Mind health (reducing the pace of cognitive ageing)
- Jigsaw Puzzles for adults for Therapy ( as a tool to deal with depression, stress or any other neuro-cognitive disorders.
- Jigsaw Puzzles for adults for Competition
Rapturous will be the first to conduct a Jigsaw puzzle competition for adults (15 years and above) in India. Speed Jigsaw puzzling is a fulltime engagement for some of the players. While our research in India tells us, but there are few adults who do spend their time with Jigsaw puzzling, however only a handful of them do speed puzzling. The speed puzzling timings in the world championships are amazing, where the winner and most good puzzlers finish a 500 piece puzzle in 38-50 mins. Since it is the first time in India, we do not expected the participants to be all in Puzzling. So our time and number of pieces both are on the easy end of the speed jigsaw puzzling spectrum.
The competition will have 144 piece puzzle (MDF based) with each puzzle size to be about 1 inch to be solved with the help of a reference image; as soon as possible as we do not have a base line yet. We know it is way too drifted from the international championship, however, we are currently considering ourselves as beginners and we will eventually find our groove for the international competitions.
It doesn’t matter if you are a pro-puzzler or doing it for the first time in your adulthood. All that you need to do for the upcoming premiere Jigsaw competition is to bring yourself to the venue and enjoy the process for now. For strategies and approaches you can refer to the other blogs that I have written.
See you at the venue.
