Japanese Company Creates 2000 Piece 'Hell Puzzle' That Is Completely Blank
If you're sat about with nothing to do while the country is in lockdown, here's a good idea for you.
If you've already watched all 42 hours of Tracy Beaker, binged everything on Disney+, and re-organised your entire house so that everything is within arm's reach of your couch, how about attempting this devilishly difficult jigsaw puzzle?
The problem is, exactly like everyone's social calendar just now, this 2,000 piece puzzle is completely and utterly blank.
That should kill off a good few hours for you, right there.
The puzzle has been made by a Japanese board game company called Beverly and is called 'Pure Hell'.
Imagining putting together a 2,000 piece jigsaw with absolutely no idea which piece goes where, and no real way to find out does sound pretty hellish, that's for sure.
It's almost as if they don't want you to actually buy and attempt this horrendous task. On the box, it bears warnings such as 'the great king of hell has arrived' and 'please do not buy this if you are a beginner'.
Well, you'd have to be a pretty serious puzzle-head to even think that this was possible. That, or you'd have to have more patience than the entire population of the world combined.

It costs ¥3,300, if by some absolute fluke you really want to buy this, that's the best part of £25. You'll probably also have to get it imported from Japan, as well.
Perhaps it's just as well that getting things posted across the world is a difficult thing to do these days.
Incidentally, it's literally a blank canvas. There's no indication of what goes where, it's just a white sheet that's been backed and cut up into 2,000 separate and individual pieces.
There's not really much more to say about it than that.
If you're thinking that 2,000 pieces of complete and utter despair is possibly a little bit extravagant for your tastes, how about the other option that Beverly Japan is offering?
That's only got 1,000 pieces, so it can only cause you half as much existential trauma and dread.
Before you do, ask yourself - is this really something that you want to do? There's lots of other things you could do - learn a skill, master a language, write a novel.
Or, you could just do what we're supposed to do, stay inside and watch telly. Hell, there must be years' worth of material on Netflix that you can watch that would be better than attempting this jigsaw.
