What If? no.21 The Game Show 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle from Ravensburger
If you enjoy creative competitions, you might remember a fun competition run by Ravensburger last year.
What IF? you were drawn into a Jigsaw Puzzle?
The search is on for Britain's funniest friends and family!
Does this ring a bell? Did you enter the competition?
Oxfordshire-based toy company Ravensburger was giving its puzzle fans a chance to feature in their bestselling What IF? jigsaw range.
Entrants were asked to submit their best funny family and friends photo using the hashtag #WhatIfWeAreAPuzzle.
The winning group was to be drawn into the next What IF? 1000-piece puzzle, depicted as entrants in a Challenge-Quiz-Show type scenario.
Launched over 5 years ago, What IF? is a firm favourite with puzzle fans across the UK. The series reflects life's unexpected twists and turns, and challenges us to imagine "What IF?"??? As the puzzle image is not shown on the box, you need to use the visual and written clues to help envisage what the finished jigsaw puzzle might look like.
One thing is for certain - expect plenty of smiles along the way!
I was very curious to find out who has won this unique prize. Now the winning entry has made it into a new What If? no.21 The Game Show 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, and what a corker it is!
The illustrations are the artwork of the much-loved artist, cartoonist and comedy writer Geoff Tristram.
The puzzle shows four members of the Douglas family, who dream of winning £1 million in TV's top quiz show, Lost in Translation.
Tash, Bradley, Liam and Ria are testing their language skills. The quizmaster Brendan Bromsgrove asks them to translate a phrase from Latin. What if they have no clue what it means?
The image on the box shows the moment when Tash & Co realise they are not able to tackle the Latin phrase. But what will the puzzle inside the box reveal?
Geoff Tristram has created caricatures of many famous faces. I imagine the Douglas family were well chuffed to join in such an exclusive club. This is truly a prize you cannot buy.
The puzzle measures 70x50cm when completed. It's suitable for ages 12+.
Like all Ravensburger puzzles, it's made from strong premium grade cardboard, with linen finish print to minimise the glare on puzzle image.
This colourful, entertaining jigsaw puzzle is suitable for ages 12+, and will make a fun gift for a whole family.
