Abstract (en)

The present invention relates to a jigsaw puzzle comprising a plurality of separate pieces (1) which can be associated with one another so as to create a single image (3) contained partially on an upper side (4) thereof situated opposite to an underside (5) thereof. Each piece has a perimetral profile (7) for fitting together with the corresponding pieces (1) which are adjacent within the compositional layout of the image (3). The pieces (1) can be organized into homogeneous groups which can be distinguished from one another by means of a marking (A, B, C, D, E, F) formed on the underside (5) so that the pieces (1) in each group have overall the same possibilities for combination with the playing pieces (1) as the pieces (1) in each of the remaining groups. Each group of pieces (1) has, for this purpose, an identical number of pieces (1) with the same combination possibilities. Advantageously the markings (A, B, C, D, E, F) designed to distinguish the different groups of pieces (1) consist of colours. <IMAGE>
