500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzles

If you are buying a jigsaw puzzle for the first time, or if it has been years since you last completed a jigsaw, a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle is an ideal starting point for adults.

Doing jigsaw puzzles is an excellent hobby because it is cheap, it is a lot of fun, it lowers stress, and gives your brain a good workout. It also helps reduce screen time!

Advice on Choosing 500 Piece Jigsaws

Many new buyers do not usually think about the best type of 500-piece jigsaw puzzle, but your choice of puzzle is important.

Some 500-piece jigsaws are extremely easy, with bright distinct topics and colours, while others are extraordinarily complex with tiny pieces, different shades of the same colour, and intricate designs. You ideally want a puzzle somewhere in the middle.

Standard Grid vs. Random Cut

If you haven't done a puzzle for a long time, a standard grid-style cut is a better choice than a random cut. Grid jigsaws tend to have classic jigsaw shapes, and they line up vertically and horizontally.

Random cut jigsaw pieces are irregular with unusually shaped pieces and most likely won't line up. This type of jigsaw is much more complicated than a grid-style puzzle.

Picking a 500 Piece Jigsaw Design

You should consider the design on a jigsaw if you don't want to be spending a week or more attempting to complete it. A 500-piece jigsaw puzzles typically takes between 2 and 6 hours to finish, so if you spend an hour a day on it, that relates to between 2 and 6 days.

Scenery and landscapes are popular designs. However, scenery jigsaws can be problematic for newbies, especially if there is a lot of grass, sea, or sky. These designs are quite intricate, so look for something with a design that does not have a lot of the same colour.

As a beginner, ideally, you can find a design that interests you without being too elaborate. As you do more puzzles, you will soon get to know which types of 500 piece puzzles you prefer, or you could upgrade to 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles.

Fun Facts

The fastest time to put together a previously unknown 500-piece jigsaw puzzle is 54:10 minutes at the US National Jigsaw Puzzle Championships of 1984 in Ohio, USA.

The puzzle that holds the world record for the largest puzzle measured 6,122.68 m² (65,905.17 ft²) and contained 12,320 pieces
