There's a delicate balance between being challenged and being frustrated. Winking Kat prides itself on creating colorful and challenging puzzles, because everyone wants to feel a sense of pride and adrenaline when they overcome a challenge. Surprisingly, our best-selling puzzle is Earth, our most difficult design. But if challenge becomes insurmountable and it leads to a feeling of frustration or failure, that's not good. So, Winking Kat Books added some helpful hints to their web page to help puzzlers solve these challenging puzzles.
The hints are not cheats or gimmes. They're some helpful strategies to find clues already placed into the artwork to help puzzlers complete the image and feel that sense of satisfaction when the puzzle is completed. For example, the cinders in Fire will help you orient your pieces even in this extremely symmetrical puzzle. The colors of the boundary lines in Water are different colors. Check to see which lines are black and which are blue. Rainbows and raindrops will help you find the right pieces to complete Air.
So, go ahead. Face this puzzle and our other more difficult puzzles with a sense of confidence. We've got your back and we're here to help you succeed.
