The Black Hills - 500 Piece
Great puzzles. So far my husband and I have completed around 50 of Dowdle puzzles. There were all great.
The artwork was beautiful. The shapes were different the most puzzles which was challenging and fun. However, the pieces did not fit tightly together. If it was slightly bumped the puzzles fell apart. If you put a few pieces together outside of the boarder and wanted to move them within there was no way to do so without them falling about. Highly disappointed.
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!
