Picture of How to make a 3 piece puzzle impossible to solve
In this indestructible i will be explaining how to make a 3 piece puzzle (or any puzzle really) impossible to solve even for an 38 year puzzle pro.

Step 1: Find a puzzle

Picture of Find a puzzle
First off you need to get a puzzle, around your house, at the store, friends house, etc...
It doesn't matter how you get it as long as you have a puzzle with all the pieces.

That's just dumb

I see that you have four followers.

What did you do, join with five different email addresses and then friend yourself?

The 'Be nice policy' wasn't made with you in mind.

So to make a 3 piece puzzle unsolvable you take away one of the pieces. Surely it is now a two piece puzzle.

Wow! What a great instructable!!!

Also with the crowd that hangs here on Instructables, chances are, that if faced with this dilemma, we would fabricate the missing piece and eventually solve the puzzle.

Is there a report button on this wonderful webiste? In two years I have never felt a need to use one. That is until this garbage was created.
Nevermind! I found it! :D Cheers.

I'd have to agree with the other posters. This did not make a puzzle impossible to solve, it breaks the puzzle. No one is adverse to a little humor, but this is more like false advertising. If you don't have anything constructive to add to this site, build something! There's only about 400,000 useful instructables!! Try one!!

...Really? I was expecting at LEAST remaking one piece to be slightly too large

oh, try this: take two puzzles with roughly the same number of peices, take out about half the peices of each puzzle, shuffle the opposite ones in, and then give a victim the puzzle.
I have a puzzle that is two combined in one box!!! It's really hard to do because the sky is basically the same color. I tried a while ago and got about half of it done but my mom made me take it apart because it was taking so long :P Some day though... ;)

I love this site and have made many projects ranging from puzzles to infinity light boxes to bookshelves. Bravo to all posters, you ingenious lot, you! But this is the dumbest instructable I've ever run across.

I once had a puzzle that was a horrible trifecta of impossibleness. Repeating pattern, no 'edge' pieces, and six extra pieces in the puzzle. If you really want to make a simple jigsaw puzzle less likely to be solved easily, simply buy a second copy of exactly the same puzzle, and mix the two. ;) Or just toss a handful of pieces from one into the other.

My sister and I used to take the 100 piece children's jigsaw puzzles, mix two or three of them, then put them together upside down, that is, from only the brown side showing. THAT was confounding for our brothers. ;)

Unfortunatley no negative five star so I'll just have to go with 0.5 of a star.
Thank you for wasting my time.

I really wanna find out what you mean! :(

As in, you take a perfectly good puzzle, and remove a piece. The puzzle becomes un-solveable because it is incomplete.

IE, it is kinda lame.

Oh i was thinking there was some secret meaning to this instructable...dang i read it like 15 times trying to find the secret meaning

I've had several pre-school children figure out how to do this, successfully, without really trying.

I'd like to be positive or constructive - or, better yet, both - but this is, easily, the most useless Instructable I've ever seen.

What a waste.

Sorry but It is impossible to be positive and constructive. This is nos a instructable but a "miserable". It is not usefull at all and what it explains in 5 step can be explained in one step: How to make a puzzle impossible to solve? Removing and loosing one pieze. What a fake instructable. Just to delete!

The title should be changed to "How to get the lowest rating in Instructables history."
