Classic Jigsaw Puzzle Brand With a Modern Feel

Danvers, Mass. (February 7, 2013) Pastime Puzzles™ is an exceptional line of jigsaw puzzles for the specialty toy and game market by Winning Moves Games.  Each 300, 500 and 1000 piece puzzle includes special, unique shaped pieces, called whimsies - birds, animals, objects and symbols. Sorting the pieces to find the wonderful whimsies becomes part of the fun!  Additionally, no two pieces are the same.  This clever element adds a whole new layer of complexity for puzzlers to solve. 

The Pastime Puzzles line is comprised of paintings from top artists. The pieces are of superior quality with a distinct thickness.  They join together with a clean snap as they are placed. As well, the package is constructed of sturdy cardboard allowing puzzlers to stand the box on its side as a guide while solving – and there are no distracting elements covering up the image.  Finished Pastime Puzzles are sized to fit into standard picture frames.

The experience doesn’t stop there.  Inside each package is a special secret code that might be a winner! Puzzlers can enter the code on the pastime-puzzles.com website for a chance to win a special, hand-cut, wooden Pastime Puzzle!  The retailer that sold the winning puzzle will also receive a special, hand-cut, wooden Pastime Puzzle.  A winner will be drawn every month.

The true jigsaw puzzle historian may recognize the Pastime Puzzles name. From 1908 to 1958, whenever jigsaw fans wanted a top of the line puzzle, they bought Pastime Puzzles by Parker Brothers of Salem, Massachusetts. The skilled and creative women who cut these wooden masterpieces, using real jig-saws, designed each and every piece by hand.  Pastimes were the favorite puzzles of kings, presidents, and celebrities.

 “Winning Moves Games has been delighting game players for more than 15 years with our heartfelt reproductions of classic games like Monopoly®, Clue®, PayDay® and more. We are thrilled to introduce Pastime Puzzles to a new generation of jigsaw puzzle fans at an affordable price!” says Phil E. Orbanes Sr., President of Winning Moves Games.

Press can preview Winning Moves Games’ new and classic games and puzzles at the 2013 American International Toy Fair in New York (Booth #2751, Jacob Javits Center).
