For those of you that don’t know about the hugely popular Wasgij puzzle range we have put together a small guide for you. WASGIJ is jigsaw spelt backwards and the puzzles offer an interesting take on the standard traditional jigsaw puzzle. The puzzle that you have to piece together are different to the images shown on the box and you have to use your imagination to complete the jigsaw.
First manufactured by Jumbo Games in 1997 the Wasgij puzzles have become the UK’s number one leading puzzle range. Starting with the Wasgij Original series there are now a few further variations on the puzzle concept.
- Wasgij Original
- Wasgij Destiny
- Wasgij Mystery
- Wasgij Christmas
- Wasgij Retro
Wasgij Original is the brainteaser puzzle that requires a bit of imagination and maybe a few clues to complete the puzzle. The puzzler has to put themselves in the position of a character that appears on the front of the box. They then have to imagine what that person is seeing and that is the puzzle that you need to put together. In the Car Boot Capers jigsaw pictured below you would have to take guess at what the People at the car boot can see and go from there!
The second of Jumbo’s Wasgij themes is “Wasgij Destiny”. This is based on a Time Travelling concept where the puzzler has to imagine what the character and scene would look like in the modern day. Below we have Highway Hold-Up.
The Wasgij Mystery concept gets the puzzler to imagine what is going to happen to the characters in the next few minutes based on the scene in the image. All seems well in Birthday Surprise but how long for?
Wasgij Christmas follows the Original concept with a Christmas twist. You have to see what Santa sees to complete the puzzle! Use your imagination to figure out what's going on in Elf Inspection.
Jumbo have been releasing Wasgij Retro puzzles over the last couple of years to give collectors a chance to complete their collections. These puzzles are based along the various different themes. Time Travel back to where it all began with this Wasgij.
