Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9532037A1] A corner element of a puzzle game that constitutes a three-dimensional pictorial representation of a building-like structure. The corner element comprises first and second backing members bonded to a flexible lithographic film. A hinge area separates the first and second backing members, allowing to bring them in a corner configuration by folding the lithographic film at the hinge area. The film has an exposed image-bearing surface constituting a pictorial entity that contributes to a complete representation of the building-like structure. The corner element is made from a blank that includes a layer of backing material laminated to the lithographic film. The backing material is die-cut at controlled depth to form the first and second backing members in a spaced apart relationship, separated by a waste strip. Prior to assembling the puzzle pieces, the user is required to peel off the waste strip from the blank in order to form the hinge area between the first and second backing members.
