The Shades Jigsaw Puzzle

Will you survive a visit to the Shades? or will you end up in a thousand pieces?!

Welcome to the belly (or should that be the bowels) of Ankh-Morpork - a fiendish melting pot of beggars, thieves, seamstresses, deviants, miscreants and Discworld's diamonds in the rough. This 1000-piece puzzle features a suitably shady illustration of the most notorious neighbourhood from Terry Pratchett's Discworld!

 'a folklorique network of old alleys and picturesque streets, wherre exitement and romans lurke arounde everry corner and much may be heard the traditional street cries of old time also the laughing visages of the denuizens as they goe about their business private.'

- The Shades, according to the Merchant's Guild.

Featuring a suitably shadowy depiction of Discworld's most notorious neighbourhood by David Wyatt, our Fiendishly Difficult Discworld Jigsaw puzzle is more tortuous than an encounter with the agony aunts, but who expected the Shades to be easy?!
Negotiate a tangled web of wonky walls, crooked rooftops and even more crooked characters as the Shades appears before your eyes. Along the way you'll encounter a cast of Ankh-Morpork's toughest characters from officers of the City Watch to ladies of negotiable affection, along with guild houses and alleyway antics!

Each puzzle includes a fold out poster to assist your puzzling endeavours and is presented in a splendid book box with magnetic closure that will look right at home on your bookshelves.

So watch your back and mind how you go as you lurk amid the murk of Ankh-Morpork!

Jigsaw puzzle measures approx 70 x 50cm
Puzzle box measures 20.5 x 25.6 x 6.3cm

Puzzling Advice...
Our production procedures safeguard against missing pieces, so please allow a few days of searching before declaring a piece missing! Puzzle pieces like to attach themselves to clothing, pets and children, so thoroughly check the packaging and any rooms used for opening, constructing, transporting or storing the jigsaw puzzle.

This puzzle contains pieces of the same shape with similar imagery. If you are left with pieces that appear not to fit please double and triple check the puzzle to make sure that all of the pieces you've placed belong where they are.

Our dimensions are indications of image size for puzzling purposes only. If you intend to frame your puzzle please check the measurement of the completed piece as the cutting of the puzzle will inevitably alter dimensions slightly.
