We use an exclusively developed, extra-thick cardboard and combine this with our fine, linen-structured paper to create a glare-free puzzle image for a quality you can feel. Our steel cutting tools are designed and crafted by hand. This ensures that no two pieces are alike and guarantees a perfect interlocking fit.

Many pieces will fit more than one location, especially in the first 7 or so rounds of the spiral. You can discern a little texture to the top of the puzzle, and I used this to help figure out those spiral pieces.
After 4 or so weeks, I have the spiral filled to about 8-10 rounds, all the edge, and the corner areas to about 3x3.
They do include a picture of the finished puzzle that will help show the design of the pieces, but the form and direction of the interlocking tabs is distorted! I assume that's by design...
I'm trying to find a method to do this one without resorting to 1) trying every single piece in every location or 2) using the 'cheat sheet'. I've used the cheat sheet a little and even then, you are stuck trying a lot of pieces.
Sorting the pieces into groups by piece design AND size helps a good bit. The spiral get larger as it goes outward. I am thinking of using a caliper and measuring the pieces to avoid having to try them all.
First layers of the spiral are sort of easy and fun. You can pick out pieces and clearly see a curve to them. When you hit layer 8 or so, they lose a LOT of the curve, face inward, get smaller, and are impossible to find!
Have now finished it. Worked on it initially for about 4 weeks or so, then shelved it (carefully, so I would not lose progress).
Restarted work on it yesterday. ~8 hours later we were done.
Nice to have it finished. The puzzle glue is drying now.
This is the ultimate challenge puzzle. It's no easy puzzle by any means, it is something to brag about finishing. My mom called a craft store about how to store the completed puzzle when we were done and mentioned what puzzle we completed, and the employee she talked to said "You finished Ravenburgers Krypt???" The puzzle has a reputation!
Honestly even if we never finished it and gave up I think we would have had fun trying and talking about the difficulty.
And any reviews from people saying "I solved this quite quickly!" are lies from sad people trying to pretend. WAY too many pieces look the same! There are pieces that take up the spaces of two pieces, and you don't know where they go! The center is circular, leading you to believe you can figure out which ones belong in the circular center and which ones belong on the edges. But beyond the middle of the circle, the closer you get to the edge, the more the pieces look exactly the same as the square ones. They did a great job of camouflaging the center pieces to look like the edges, leaving you with even more pieces to sort through to get a match.
It's no easy puzzle by any means! Total puzzle fun and a great challenge!
If you have to do a solid color puzzle to complete your bucket list, this is a fun one. I love the Krypt format, although I'm not sure if the difficulty came from the shape or from the lack of picture at times.
The puzzle measures 50cm by 70cm when completed, and a 20" x 28" frame will work for it if you want to preserve it.
The shape is what makes the Krypt puzzle line fun. In the middle is a massive spiral, spiraling from smaller pieces to larger, barely curved pieces. Bordering these pieces are irregular, typically triangle-shaped pieces that provide the interface between the pieces making up the spiral and the quadrilateral pieces that make up the outer parts of the puzzle. To complete this puzzle, you have to rely on the obvious factors: shape, size, number of prongs/slots. A guide showing the puzzle piece types in a completed puzzle diagram is provided in a sealed envelope with the puzzle, but it is left up to the purchaser whether or not to open it. Some people like taking their pictures of the completed puzzle with the sealed envelope to prove they did not need it.
The biggest downside to this puzzle I think is that the majority of the satisfaction only comes when you complete major blocks, like all of the border, all of a block-filled corner, or larger portions of the spiral. You don't get the same satisfaction you do from completing part of a picture. However, it provides more satisfaction throughout than a larger piece-count solid color puzzle.
Overall, I found it was a lot of fun to just stop at the table and work on it for an hour here and there. I will definitely do another Krypt puzzle...but I think this time one with a picture. Maybe the Krypt puzzle with the Riemann fractal.
