The definition of dissectologist is a person who enjoys jigsaw puzzle assembly. That is precisely what it means.

Jigsaw puzzles prior to and during the 19th century were called dissected maps and also known as dissected puzzles. These were wooden pictures that were hand cut with a fret saw into irregular shaped pieces. These pieces were then assembled together to complete the whole picture.

How to get started with Jigsaw Puzzles

For most adults, a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle is a great place to start. You can easily work up to more challenging 750 and 1000 piece jigsaws from this point. And you can just as easily come down to the readily available 250 and 300 piece designs that are also made with adults in mind.

For the more adventurous Gnome Games keeps a huge selection of puzzles in stock from 35 – 20,000 pieces!
