Ji Ga Zo Review...

Thanks to Hasbro, we recently had the chance to review the latest puzzle craze from Japan...Ji Ga Zo!
About Ji Ga Zo from Hasbro:
"Not only is Hasbro a leader in the games industry, but we are also the world’s largest manufacturer of puzzles. This year, we are excited to introduce Ji Ga Zo, a revolutionary new product, which allows you to use photos to create personalized puzzles. In fact, you can use the same 300 pieces in the puzzle to make virtually any image – a child, spouse, friend, pet or celebrity! Each game comes with CD-Rom software to convert any image into a puzzle map of symbols and colors. The map is then used to transform the sepia-colored pieces into your image. Since the puzzle is assembled based on a custom map, the image can be changed, the map updated and the pieces reshuffled for hours and days of fun!"
Ji Ga Zo is revolutionizing the puzzle category! This awesome puzzle has 300 pieces that you arrange to create any face — even your own! Start out with any digital image and upload it using the Ji Ga Zo software. The software figures out the placement of each piece and builds a unique icon map. Then, it’s up to you to arrange the pieces according to the icon map and watch your own special image come together! These 300 pieces are specially created with unique colors and shading that let them interlock to create almost any face image you upload. The possibilities are virtually endless and the “face-making” fun goes on and on! CD-ROM includes icon maps for Mona Lisa, a collie dog, a kitten, a panda bear and MR MONOPOLY.
Includes CD-ROM with software and instructions, 300 puzzle pieces and assembly grid.
Adult installation required."

What we thought: This is really an incredibly unique puzzle that was fun for the whole family. The best part about this puzzle is that it can be done over and over again to make a different picture each time so you really get your money's worth:) The puzzle pieces are sorted by colors and symbols and the little ones really enjoyed helping find each piece for our picture. The images aren't super clear, but you can tell what or who it is supposed to be which is really neat. This would be great for kids 8 years old and above...even adults would love this puzzle:) ABCD Diaries gives Ji Ga Zo an A+!

Buy It: You can find Ji Ga Zo at mass merchandisers nationwide.
