Here are some tips and tricks to becoming a true online puzzle adventurer who travels to amazing destinations around the world and beyond!
When you click on a picture puzzle to play it, you will be taken to puzzle mode. The pieces have been sorted into two sets.
- The edge pieces are on the table
- The rest of the pieces are tucked away in the puzzle drawer until you need them.
If you want a piece from the drawer, just click and drag the handle. You can move pieces back and forth between the table and the drawer, especially if you find it helps to work out the puzzle in sections.
When you see two pieces you think belong together, click and drag one of the pieces so that the connecting edges line up. When you let go, if they are a match, they will snap together to become a single piece. Sometimes pieces may look like they can go together, but if they don't snap together they probably don't. Every time you make a match, you'll score one token.
As you are building your puzzle, also keep in mind that you can win tokens based on how quickly you finish the puzzle. The number of time bonus tokens you win is determined by the level of difficulty. The harder the difficulty, the more tokens you can win for the same length of time.
If you're playing on the elite or master difficulty levels, you may need to use the rotate button to move the piece into the correct orientation. If you are especially skilled, you can right-click to rotate a piece you have selected. Otherwise, click on the piece you want to rotate to select it (red-highlight), and then click to rotate the piece 90 degree clockwise. You may need to rotate the piece several times to arrive in the correct position.
If you click the hint button , it will find a matching piece for the last selected piece (the one with the red-highlight). You won't earn any points for using the hint button. You can only use the hint button five times per puzzle.
If you need a reference of what the puzzle looks like, click to see a small version of the final image. You can drag it around the screen if it is in your way. Dismiss the thumbnail by closing the preview window.
As an avid treasure hunting puzzle adventurer, you may hone many techniques. You may put together the outside pieces first or try and find pieces that are the same color. Stacking all your pieces into groups of similar colors may also be helpful. In order to move a larger group of pieces around the table or from the table to the puzzle drawer, use the magnet tool . When you click on this button, a circle will surround your cursor. When you click and drag, the magnet tool will allow you to move all the pieces within the circumference of the circle at one time. Click the group move tool button again to toggle it off.
If you need help distinguishing between pieces, use the piece finder . This tool highlights pieces that have not yet been placed. They will be highlighted in yellow so you can find them. Toggle it on and off by clicking the button.
