Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to stimulate your mind without having to be glued to a screen. The tiled designs offer hours upon hours of fun as you attempt to fit all of the pieces together. While jigsaw puzzles are a popular activity for children, there’s a growing trend—companies are producing unconventional and creative iterations geared towards adults. These jigsaws challenge our notion of puzzle shapes; and, they push the envelope, when it comes to what we expect in surface design.

Creative studio Nervous System is one of the best when it comes to designing jigsaw puzzles for adults. They take inspiration from the Earth and cosmos to produce games that are especially challenging. The wooden Geode Puzzle, for instance, is made using a computer program that cuts contorted puzzle pieces, making it extra difficult to solve.

If you prefer to stick to the square and rectangular puzzle formats, don't worry—we’ve got you covered. From vintage Vogue covers to colorful crystals, you can work from the edges inward and solve these jigsaws to reveal their beautiful images. Check out more of these puzzles for adults, below.

Stimulate your mind—away from the computer screen—when you solve these 20+ creative jigsaw puzzles for adults.
