Audio Slideshow: Our Secret Puzzle Tester Meets Her Match

Here at Stave, we have a small group of elite puzzle testers that keep us on our toes by making sure our wooden jigsaw puzzles are up to snuff. One part geometry genius, one part masochist, these testers are invaluable to us because they are so good at doing jigsaw puzzles, they know when we have goofed by either making a puzzle too hard, or worse, too easy!

 

One of our long-time testers is Penelope Puzzlenut. A former resident of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, she is now hiding out in the Midwest on a 140-acre farm where she gardens, paints and kicks the tires on our puzzles. It’s a peaceful place - until we show up with our new puzzles that is.

 

This month we almost had to call the paramedics because she got her first taste of our new “Trouble Maker” puzzle. Two phone calls to The Chief Tormentor later, we finally calmed her frayed nerves. Says Penelope: “It’s is one of the most devious puzzles I have ever tinkered with. I can’t wait for more.”

 

We told you these folks are masochists.
