Review: Ji Ga-Zo

Take puzzle making to revolutionary new heights with Ji Ga Zo, Hasbro's amazing new puzzle game. Ji Ga Zo lets you create mosaic-style pictures of anyone--from the Mona Lisa to your best friend--all with the same 300 pieces. As long as you have a digital image, Ji Ga Zo can turn it into a puzzle. Ji Ga Zo is recommended for puzzle-makers ages eight and up, and it requires a personal computer and printer.

Turn Virtually Any Digital Portrait Into a Puzzle

No matter whose image you want to turn into a puzzle, Ji Ga Zo can do it--all with the same 300 pieces. The Ji Ga Zo puzzle pieces have special shading that lets them create almost any face image. Each piece is marked with a unique icon for reference in creating your puzzle.

Start out with any digital image and upload it to the Ji Ga Zo software. The software determines the placement of each piece and builds a unique icon map based on the image. Print your icon map, and then reference it to arrange Ji Ga Zo's pieces on the included assembly grid. As you put the pieces together, you will see your image start to take shape.

300 Pieces Create an Almost Endless Variety of Images
Because of their special shading, the Ji Ga Zo pieces can be used over and over again in unique combinations to create an almost endless variety of images. As long as you have a digital image, Ji Ga Zo can turn it into a puzzle. And once you're done with your puzzle, you can upload another image, create another icon map, and put together another puzzle. The possibilities are virtually endless.

This sounds very fun for someone into puzzles.
It would take a lot of ink. My problem would be wanting to keep the picture. That would be the end of the fun and probably expencive fun. I liked your review. It explained what it was, how it worked, what was provided and what you would need to have yourself.
