Color Me Puzzled

This cool CMYK jigsaw puzzle contains 1,000 pieces in 1,000 different colors. Creator Clemens Habicht claims the puzzle is less difficult to master than most puzzles. He explains,

"The idea came from enjoying the subtle differences in the blue of a sky in a particularly brutal jigsaw puzzle, I found that without the presence of image detail to help locate a piece I was relying only on an intuitive sense of colour, and this was much more satisfying to do than the areas with image details.

What is strange is that unlike ordinary puzzles where you are in effect redrawing a specific picture from a reference you have a sense of where every piece belongs compared to every other piece. There is a real logic in the doing that is weirdly soothing, therapeutic, it must be the German coming out in me. As each piece clicks perfectly into place, just so, it’s a little win, like a little pat on the back."

I'm not convinced my intuition would take over while attempting to assemble the puzzle, but between it being pretty and seemingly challenging, I'm tempted to try. Order the 1,000 Colors puzzle here. It ships out from Australia, so shipping cost is a consideration for most of us; the price minus shipping is $33 USD. -Via Colossal
