About this deal

The most important thing in Mayhem in the Library is the image. This offers you all the clues you need to work out what the hidden 101 books are. Wow, are some of these really inventive. I want to share just one of these with you. I promise this is not going to spoil your enjoyment of the rest of the jigsaw but it will give you a taste of what is to come. This is a picture of a donkey wearing a red saddle bearing the letters OTE on it. Do you get it? Donkey-OTE, Don Quixote! It is brilliant! Mayhem in the Library is a super 1,000 piece jigsaw that includes 101 hidden book titles. Having solved the other two puzz-ames in the series (Day at the Festival and Night at the Movies), I was ready to get my head into a book……based puzzle! Jigsaws that have an extra layer of puzzliness are real hits in our house. Again, like the others in the series, they’re designed for an older crowd that our 8 year old, but he is a fiend at the piecing together stage. Plus, the way his fresh mind and imagination works, he was able to “see” things that us older puzzlers missed or disregarded. As such and as a family, we had a great time solving this together.

We had a great time with this puzzle. If you love games and puzzles like we do, I’d recommend Mayhem in the Library and the others in the series. I can’t say which is my favourite as they are all slightly different. But, with a memory as bad as mine, I know I’ll happily piece and puzzle my way through it again at some point!

I think the main thing that sets this puzzle apart from others is the quiz game aspect of looking at the clues and finding all the books. That part isn’t really particularly replayable, unless you have a terrible memory. But I really enjoyed doing this jigsaw and I think I’d enjoy it again, although I have a few book-worm pals who will absolutely love to get themselves knee deep in this one, so I will pass on the love. Round Up Plus it’s a great slow burn. We couldn’t solve all the riddles in one session. But were able to dip in and out of it whenever one or more of us had a few moments and a desire to find one more of those books! As such, it stayed on the puzzle board a lot longer than most, and I’m tempted to keep it and frame it as really is a brilliant piece of art underneath all the riddling fun! Final Thoughts This is a quiz and a puzzle in one. This is the third in the series from Big Potato Games following Night at the Movies and Day at the Festival. As you build up the picture then you will see clues pointing you to 101 different books. These vary from the typical children’s stories to the classics. Some are far easier to guess than others, but before you can do any of this, you need to put the puzzle together. I decided to challenge myself and complete this in one sitting, a noble task which I did achieve after 5 hours but that was a big effort. Components The components here consist of the puzzle pieces, the picture itself and also the quiz sheet where you write your answers. So first up, the puzzle pieces. These are relatively chunky cardboard with lovely clean edges. The most important thing in a jigsaw to my mind is how easy they are to put together. This gets an A* from me, there were no accidental placements and it was relatively easy to distinguish the shape you were looking for.
