This puzzle took less than five minutes to complete. Idea was great...execution was terrible. The problem is that they didn't cut the pieces all on one die (cut all at once) so the pieces only fit (properly) in one receptacle... That literally solves the puzzle for you in minutes. VERY disappointing. If they had cut all the diamonds with the same die..(same for hearts, clubs, and spades) it would have been MUCH more difficult-and enjoyable.

This puzzle and its counterparts make great stocking stuffers. I leave mine on the coffee table and when company comes over, they can resist trying to fit it together. Not all succeed. In fact, most don't. Trying to get it right and taking the time to work it is well worth the reward of succeeding. If you're an impatient person in general, you probably won't even try and that's too bad.

This puzzle gives hours of fun and (good) frustration. Just as you begin to think how easy it is, the last piece won't fit and its time to start again. Great for problem solving and thinking ahead.

Although it is made of a durable cardboard, you still need to be gentle where the pieces interlock when disassembling the puzzle.

This was a gift for a friend. She loved trying to figure out how to put it together. She actually never figured it out, and to this day it's still racking her brain! This is a great gift for any puzzle lover.

My husband and a math wizard put this together using both of their individual skills. It took about 3 or 4 hours. It is NOT something most people could do that fast if at all. It is a VERY tough puzzle!!!

I thought the puzzle was hard, but my uncle did it in less than 5 minutes and he could do it no problem. Theres something with the way it was cut. It's ok, boring.

As a child I had this puzzle for several years and was never able to figure it out. I had no idea what happened to that first one, so I was excited when I received a new one as a gift for Christmas. Much to my surprise, I solved it the next day. I really like that this puzzle is pretty compact, it is also quick to learn and try, but can take years to figure it out.

Like many real good puzzles,this one has been around for some time.What makes a puzzle exceptional is if it is non intimidating,looks easy,provides lots of challenge and entertainment ,for people of all ages.What could be easier to put together than a Jigsaw puzzle with only 9 pieces? Well;in only a couple of minutes,it's soon evident that this little gem is much tougher than it looks. I don't have any idea when,or by whom it was invented ;but I have one made by The Great American Puzzle Factory Inc.,and dated 1989.The fact that they are still offering it for sale attests to its popularity.
I note that one of the reviewers was less than enthused with it since he mentions that his uncle solved it in 5 minutes .He claimed it was easy to solve by using the back side of the pieces and observing the cutting by the die.You can be sure he won't solve it in 5 miutes.
That is quite possible,as I have observed that it is easy to determine which sides of the pieces in a double-sided Jigsaw puzzle are front and back.If that reviewer would like to surprise his uncle;he should consider presenting him with "The Ultimate Puzzle",It is quite similar,but consists of 25 pieces,and is made of plastic,and there is no difference between the front and back of the pieces.I can also be found here on Amazon.Where there seems to be only one solution to "One Tough Puzzle","The Ultimate Puzzle"offers 4-piece,9-piece and 25-piece,challenges.It is actually 48 puzzles in one and a real challenge for anyone who has mastered the "One Tough Puzzle".
