We also encountered pieces that didn't coordinate with the pic on front. Very confusing! Several people missing, objects replaced with others, duplicate scenes...made it very complicated!
These are great puzzles for kids as pieces are larger
Love the Black Hills, but the actual puzzle is missing people/items from the picture of the puzzle—so confusing! The mountain goats and train engineer are gone, no Big Thunder Gold Mine sign, a horse-drawn wagon replaced the motorcycle, no buffalo, etc. I’ve always loved Dowdle puzzles/artwork but the differences mystify me. It’s not like it was missing any pieces.
I bought this puzzle while on my recent trip to S. Dakota and Wyoming. It was so fun to put it together, because it contains many of the sights we saw and visited. Very colorful, high quality, and enjoyable. It was missing one puzzle piece, but that didn't both me too much and I still had a great time putting it together. Now I'm going to pass it on to a friend so she can enjoy it, too!
