Jigsaw Puzzle - "Romantic Notions"
I got the idea for this puzzle from a comment by Angie Martin. She suggested that the collage that I blogged about yesterday, HERE, would make a nice puzzle. That reminded me that I have a program on my computer that can create digital jigsaw puzzles that can be shared. The program is called BrainsBreaker and you can get more information about it HERE.
The BrainsBreaker version that I have is VERY old so I can't say for sure if the puzzle that I've made will work on newer versions of Windows. It does work on Windows XP, which is what I'm using. The latest version of BrainsBreaker works on Window 10 and also on Mac. What I don't know is if the latest version can open puzzles created with an older version like the one I have. The old version saves the puzzles as EXE files that can be opened by anyone, even if they don't have the program on their computer. Puzzles created with the latest version require that the program be installed but you don't need to buy a copy of it to play a shared puzzle that was created with the new version. You can run shared puzzles using the free trial version according to what I read on their website. It remains to be seen though if old free-standing puzzles can be opened through the free trail version that's currently available.
So, if you want to give my puzzle a try, click HERE to download a ZIP file containing a stand-alone EXE puzzle. Let me know if you are able to run it on a more recent version of Windows. If you're using a Mac, you'll probably have to buy the new version and I don't know if my puzzle will open or not. Let me know how that goes, if you do try it.
