If you need a new idea so you don’t get bored at home, here is one that will last you for weeks: Kodak has launched the world’s largest puzzle: more than 50,000 pieces and the size of a bus.
We do not exaggerate. The puzzle measures 8.6 meters long by 1.9 meters high, for a total of 51,300 pieces . Paradise (or the nightmare) of any puzzle lover.
This giant puzzle is made up of 27 images of some Wonders of the World . All of them are icons of universal architecture. From the Colosseum in Rome to Machu Picchu in Peru, the Japanese Mount Fuji, or the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The only Spanish representation is the Park Güell in Barcelona.
The puzzle will be divided into 27 independent bags, each centered on a monument. Each bag contains 1,900 pieces. Kodak advises in the instruction book to assemble them one by one and join them at the end.
It must be clear that these are not 27 independent puzzles that you then paste next to each other: all of them are joined by pieces, so it is a single puzzle measuring 8.6 meters long by 1.9 meters high . As difficult as completing it, it will be finding a place to put it … You can stick it on the hallway wall, or on a garden wall, if you protect it well. But still very few houses will have room to exhibit it.
Kodak knows that there is nothing more frustrating than placing 51,299 pieces, to realize that you have lost one … So it has a coordinate system that allows you to reference the missing chip, to request a free replacement. Of course, only one per customer , so do not lose it a second time …
As you may have imagined, the price of the world’s largest puzzle is not cheap . Although it will provide you with fun for weeks, and even months, so it can compensate you if you are a puzzle fanatic.
It will go on sale in the United States at a price of $ 599.95. It is already listed on Amazon USA , although it does not have a release date yet.
