These jigsaw puzzles are often less than 500 pieces and are geared towards older children. They feature pictures or subject matter which are not repetitive.
Jigsaw puzzles which have some solid colored areas often fit into this category. Intermediate jigsaws are usually between 500 and 1000 pieces, although there are some exceptions.
The majority of 1000 and 1500 piece jigsaws puzzles are considered to be advanced. Nearly all the photomosaic jigsaws are advanced. Advanced jigsaws can have a considerable amount of solid colored area and may have other subject matter which is hard to differentiate.
When a jigsaw puzzle has large solid colored areas, repeating patterns, or contains 2000 pieces or more it will probably get an extreme rating. Extreme jigsaw puzzles may take large areas or long periods of time assemble.
Only the most challenging and formidable jigsaw puzzles get a rating of ultra extreme. To be ultra extreme, a jigsaw must have characteristics that set it well apart from simply being extreme. For example, having 5000 pieces or more will likely qualify a jigsaw to be ultra extreme. Some of these tremendously large puzzles can take up an entire room during assembly. Other ultra extreme jigsaw puzzles may be double-sided and/or contain highly repetitive patterns.
