The art work on this on the website is much much lighter than the real thing. I've loved all the critical role puzzles I've put together, but the shiny material combined with the incredibly dark image makes this one more frustrating than fun.
First, let me say the art is beautiful however it's the print quality that lets the puzzle down.
As some others have said, this puzzle is DARK. It is nothing like the box, you can hardly make out any details on the pieces. I basically had to sort the pieces into light and dark and guess what they were. I think it was made even harder as there are no definitive lines or anything, its just grass or foliage so most pieces could have gone anyway in a large section.
If you're looking for a challenge then I would say try this puzzle.
All of the other Critical Role puzzles have taken me around 4 hours each, this one took well over 15 hours over the span of 2 weeks as it was the most frustrating thing to work on.
Personally, I'm not breaking this one up and I'm storing it in large chunks as I know I don't want to try it again, it wasn't particularly enjoyable to complete compared to their other puzzles.
The artwork as seen in the store is fantastic. In reality though it is much, much darker. For instance, the blue glow on Caduceus's cloak is barely visible. I'm not sure if it is a mistake/misprint or if it is supposed to be like this though.
A few pieces have cracks in the facing on some edges but it is barely noticable. The pieces themselves are ok, some of the shapes are really interesting and fun to put together but the majorty of the pieces are fairly similar/common in shape. The similarity in addition to the difficulty to see any pattern at all makes it difficult to know if you have the correct piece or not since several might fit. It isn't until you have two or three edges ready that you can be sure that you have the right piece for one particular spot.
In short it is not what I was expecting, but if you want this for the challenge I'd say go for it. If you just want it for the art I would recommend to stay away from this one.
I added some pictures but the camera makes the colours and contrast more visible, so to the eye it is even darker.
+Some interesting shapes/pieces
-Can barely see the art
-Very difficult puzzle
-Several pieces can fit in one spot unless you have multiple sides to match it to
The artwork is beautiful and the quality is very good
This puzzle is challenging and took a long time to put together because of how dark it is and the glare from any kind of lighting just adds to the degree of difficulty. I resorted to matching pieces based on shapes alone for 2/3rds of the puzzle so it took a few months of off-and-on work. But, the hard work paid off and the end result is awesome! I am mounting the finished product to a board and giving it a glow-up paint job so I can see the details in the dark!
