Introducing Dynamic Puzzle Cuts

June 9, 2014

If you play a lot of our jigsaws, you may have noticed that the piece shapes are always the same for each type of puzzle cut. For example the 6 piece classic pieces always look the same, no matter what puzzle image you are playing. Many of our members have even memorized the piece shapes for each cut!

After many months of hard work, we are proud to announce that Crazy4Jigsaws now features dynamic puzzle cuts! Now when you play a regular classic cut, the puzzle pieces are randomly created for a completely unique experience.

This brand-new feature is available today for free, and is automatically enabled. If you would like to switch back to the old static puzzle cuts, you can do so in your account settings.

We hope that dynamic puzzle cuts will bring a new sense of challenge and enjoyment to our puzzles. Thank you to everyone who suggested it! Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments section below, or let us know if you have any other suggestions to help make the site even better.

Happy puzzling!

I'm sorry that I have to admit that I really like the old way. Going to give this way a good try and see how I do before I stop playing. I always started my day off with the classic cut puzzles. Thanks.

Mulebreeder13 - I urge you to play the new cuts for a while. I think you'll really like them and enjoy the challenge of a brand new cut every time.

If you still prefer the old puzzle cuts, you can disable dynamic cuts in your account settings.

New puzzle shapes are great. I usually only have a little time in the morning to have fun with jigsaw puzzles, so don't have have time to do more than the classic most of the time. Like Judithann,and I am guessing many others, have memorized all the shapes. It will be great to have a variety of shapes to make these puzzles even more fun every day!!! Thank you so much C4J :)

I am happy about this. I was ready to stop this puzzle link because it is no challenge.
Pegalcorn
Thank you! I am one of the solvers who has memorized all the cuts I can do. So all I do now is tesselation. Now I can do regular cuts as well. Wonderful!
kaartlezer
Good idea, will probably give more fun.
pmawla
This is wonderful. I have memorized the placement of many of the pieces and didn't try to do so. This is a feature that is appreciated. Thanks
kittypig2
love it take a while to get used to large cut then small but I will master it love puzzles and do 3 each morning and 3 each evening--relaxes me to no end. Keep them up and keep adding new photo's to do.
toadalove
Will try it! thanks!
JanRae52
I will let you know once I have completed one.
Frostymuffins
I love doing the puzzles, but as you say it does get to the point that you know where each piece goes. I, however, don't do the puzzle for timing to beat others, I play because I like to do puzzles.
sandisqs
Yeah!!! More of a challenge.
budwyzer
I think that this is great, as I have remembered most of the puzzle cuts. Thanks.
cdweir01
Good idea. I have not been playing for long, but I was already noticing the patterns of the shapes were repetitive. Keeps us on our toes!
virg7424
Love getting a new puzzle each day. This will make it more fun.
AbbyDoodle
Grand idea! I have memorized the shapes. Will be more challenging.
sisjean
about time---love this!
oldestsister
Just did a couple puzzles with new cut. Really like it. Some how seemed easier, but time was pretty much the same. Don't want to get to fast, someone has to come in last!!!
CatLadyOKC
Disabled mine, I do not take change well..., but will try it on a day when I'm not stressed to began with. The one thing I noticed when I joined this site was that the classic puzzles were just like the ones you buy in the box. So many of the sites has what they called classic but they were not the shape that was my idea of a classic shape. I know change is good and was happy to see we could to either type and I will try the new type at another time...always glad to see new features.
4Cisc0Kid
I play puzzles everyday. I am happy to see the change in the puzzle cuts. It is true that the same cuts for every puzzle was becoming boring.
Redrose2
That is wonderful. I play every day so it will be nice to have different shapes. Thank you. A very satisfied customer.
SANTACLAUS
Have not tried your new cuts as yet but the do say a change is as good as a rest will look forward to yet another challenge.Santa.
ladydesertrat
Yes, it was getting too easy. Thanks for changing and challenging us.
zabeth88
Sounds good to me. A bit more challenging! Elizabeth
shtiksa
Great idea. It was really getting boring.
Patricia100
I'm excited to try the new cuts also, and think it is a great idea. Will we be able to go back & forth with the disable/able function?
Kevin - Crazy4Jigsaws Staff
Patricia100 - Yes you can enable/disable the dynamic cuts whenever you want. We'll be keeping the old puzzle cuts for whoever wants to keep playing them.
gram5
I am excited. I love a little challenge.
Bethohm
I just tried the new puzzle cut and the one that appeared was the bottom one shown in the pictures above. I am not sure why but the curved parts of the pieces seem to make me somewhat dizzy! I changed back to the original so this feature does not seem to work for me. Glad it works for so many other people. Thank you.
Kevin - Crazy4Jigsaws Staff
Bethohm - I'm sorry to hear that the new cuts make you dizzy, but thanks for giving them a try!
Springrains
Nice going.. I look forward to the new shapes of the pieces.
brendadiaz
Awesome!
LuvsWesterns
Bravo! It may even take a while before those champions of each cut, those who run circles around the rest of us in their solve times, memorize the new cuts! I also think it is a marvelous change, and I'm sure many others have also wished for different puzzle cuts for quite a while. It is also very bright of you to allow folks to switch back to the old and comfortable cuts. But I, for one, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
hue44
great! I play the same cut no. now I have a different Challenge. Thanks. Can you come up with different icons
vivianKnight
would like the shake up of pieces to make it more of a challenge
jmkill1951
I'm so happy you've done this. I love doing the puzzles the way they are presented, although it's nice to have something different for a change! Keep up the good work!
mbrigyoni211
I was hoping for this...thanks...
WiserBarnes
I am excited about this as I do tend to play the same puzzle size every time. I appreciate you all going the extra mile to keep it exciting for everyone. I really love your puzzles and look forward to new ones all the time. Thank you for having the best puzzle site I have ever found. I have pets and am clumsy myself so I do not have to worry about knocking it over or the pets jumping on it and scattering pieces everywhere or chewing the pieces up. It is great having the fun of doing the puzzle without the worry of a regular puzzle. Thank you for taking one worry off my mind. Forever greatful and one of your biggest fans, Gayla Barnes

Does this feature apply for the free version? Noeline
Kevin - Crazy4Jigsaws Staff
Noeline - Yes, this feature is available to everyone for free.
LuvsWesterns
Played the new classic and wavy puzzle cuts on and off today, and they are fun, different and somewhat challenging. My only suggestion would be that you create either a parallel count for classic and new cuts for same-numbered and style of puzzle or start a new times-posted area for the new cuts. For Premium players who want to really challenge themselves, of course, there's always the rotation of pieces option.
play01
I agree with you and I do look forward to the dynamic puzzle cuts!
jbutkk
Jbu This will make puzzling a bit more challenging and a lot more fun!!!
Eveningstar

philipcb

ebenezer
Really like the new shapes.
Boondoggler
Thanks for the new feature!
wintersqlts
I think this will make the puzzles much more interesting! I have not memorized the pieces, gosh---I'm not that good...but I do like the idea of a different "look". Keep up the beautiful puzzles---I am here almost every day and never get tired of doing your puzzles!
fmick1926
YES! Before I had bought a membership I would play the same classic puzzle piece game and yea I was beginin' to remember it. Thank you.
jbutkk
This sounds like it is going to make things more of a challenge and fun because we can't "remember" where each piece goes!~! Thank you!!!! jbu
NAJESSKIE
looking forward to having a go at this new venture
weatherford51
I am willing to try the new way. Who wants the same routine. thank you
richch
Love the new puzzle cuts. Thank you.
nbwelden
This is a great idea. Occasional changes are usually good. Many thanks!
MAZDA
That is a great idea. I look forward to playing the new ones
gmatay
Yeah,,,,this is great news Sometimes I really like the puzzle and want to do it again--only changed so this works for me.....Thank-you
peekymom
It's an interesting concept, although your standard puzzle cuts keep me occupied well enough as the 500 pieces seem really small. I'd like a TV size monitor so I could try the largest. I do enjoy your puzzles.
MageTalesin
this is a great idea it will make puzzles more fun to build
hbuist
Should be more challenging
mamag15
I love the changes. It can get boring doing the same ting all the time. Thank you team Two thumbs up.
emysatin
Super change - - this is what puzzling is all about!! Thank you.
JOSEACRAB
Thank you for the new challenge! I'll admit it... I'm one of those who had memorized the shapes and their locations and rarely used the picture as a clue to placement of each piece. The new puzzle cuts make me use a full range of puzzle-solving skills to complete the picture. And that's good for my mental agility. Thanks!
soumashree
this will be interesting. i was getting bored with the same puzzle cuts.
YvonneGehrke
I am anxious to try the new cut outs. I love puzzles Thanks. YGehrke
CatLadyOKC
I do have a question, how does it effect you puzzles that you have saved? Will they all change or will they stay in the format they were done in?
Kevin - Crazy4Jigsaws Staff
CatLadyOKC - Great question! Dynamic puzzles that are saved will always re-open as the same cut shapes that you originally started with. The puzzle won't change shape in the middle of solving it.
pjak02
Love the site - thanks for the changes - still would really like to see larger piece count available on all cuts, especially the more challenging cuts like tessellation.. Thank you pjak02
maryellencurry
Good idea. Thanks MECurry
dbnc2
love it
theorangutans
happy to see this
ColleenAnn
Wonderful idea, I was memorizing the shapes myself.. this will be more of a challenge for us all. Thank you
PullmanGal
This is a great enhancement. Even in the 300 piece puzzles, I have learned the pattern in the second row from the top. Thanks so much for improving our experience!
coolmoves8
Excellent! Challenges the brain! So important to keep us alert! Salamat!
leagle
I'm so happy to hear about this new feature!
tmom32
Cool, sound great
dug181
I think it's really fun thanks
dbnc2
i like thank you
dbnc2
love it thank you team
auntivi1
I just love your puzzles especially the plants and flowers categories. Beautiful and colorful which makes the finished puzzle so dynamic and real. One suggestion though, could you also make different shapes such as trees, balls, cars, etc.? It is more of a challenge to complete. I just love these puzzles. Thank you so much for providing a way to get my brain healthy.
trishobrien
like the new pics very bright colors
