Step 1: 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.

Step 2: Double check

Make sure you have all the pieces of the puzzle and that it can be successfully built.

Step 3: Make it unsolvable

Now were going to make the puzzle "impossible" to solve without buying a new puzzle or new pieces.
Randomly select a puzzle piece, take the puzzle piece away from the other puzzle pieces, "lose the puzzle piece", and behold the unsolvable puzzle!

Step 4: Alternative

If you want to puzzle someone even more you can "lose" one of a puzzle set`s puzzle pieces but instead of stopping there, add a puzzle piece from a different puzzle that looks like it goes to the "rigged" puzzle. Pretty villainous

Step 5: Challenge your friends

Challenge your friends with your puzzle and see how puzzled you can make them and when they say it is impossible just say "nothing is impossible".
