Diagonal Maze 515-piece Puzzle: Escape from Eden
This elaborate puzzle was named Best Puzzle of the Year in 1998 by Games Magazine, and it's easy to see why it's received such rave reviews. More than a puzzle, the game is an ongoing plot in which puzzle builders take on the persona of an explorer trapped inside an intricate garden labyrinth. Before you can begin your perilous journey home, you must assemble the very maze you're trapped within, say the instructions. Puzzle pieces depict an illustrated garden full of exotic fountains, lush flower beds, exquisite sculptures, and numerous dead ends. The trick is to create a linking passageway through this treacherous labyrinth. (No, you may not jump over hedges.) The puzzle pieces are about 1 inch square. Once the garden scene is completed, it measures 19.5 by 17.5 inches. On a scale of fun-challenging-difficult-expert, this 515-piece puzzle is rated difficult.
