I haven’t put a jigsaw together since I was a kid. I remember them being a lot of fun, although they rarely had more than a couple of hundred pieces. I’m not sure if I’d ever consider doing one again, but if I did, I think it would have to be this one – assuming I can find a space large enough.

This is Kodak’s “World’s Largest Puzzle“, which is a 51,300 piece jigsaw measuring 8.7 x 1.9m (28.5′ x 6.25′). It’s actually 27 puzzles in one, each featuring different “Wonders from around the world”, but each of those 27 puzzles connects to each other to form the huge overall piece.

The full list of locations around the world includes…

  • New York City Skyline, USA
  • Colosseum, Italy
  • Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
  • Chichen Itza, Mexico
  • Machu Picchu, Peru
  • Grand Palace, Thailand
  • Santorini Island, Greece
  • Taj Mahal, India
  • Tower Bridge, England
  • Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
  • The Great Wall of China, China
  • Mount Fuji, Japan
  • Hagia Sophia, Turkey
  • Great Barrier Reef, Australia
  • The British Virgin Islands
  • Washington DC, USA
  • St. Basil’s Cathedral, Russia
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Eiffel Tower, France
  • Borobudur, Indonesia
  • Prague, Czech Republic
  • Venice, Italy
  • Nasira al-Mulk “Pink Mosque”, Iran
  • Niagara Falls, Canada
  • Hong Kong
  • Nyhavn in Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Park Guell, Spain

Quite the list of venues, and each one is technically its own 1900 piece puzzle, with all of the pieces for each organised into 27 individual bags. So, you can build up each section one at a time, and then join them all together. Personally, this feels like cheating. Just throw all 51,300 in a big bin and do it the proper way, I say.

If you want to challenge yourself, and have a large enough floor or wall on which to put it together, you can buy the Kodak “World’s Largest Puzzle” now for $565.

    I hate puzzles like this. It’s not A puzzle it’s 27 different puzzles just connected together.
