Do you love playing puzzles to wind down in the evenings, or pass time while waiting in line, or at the doctor’s office? Or are you just addicted to puzzle games in general? Wouldn’t it be fun to have a Bible verse as the reward for completion?
Honestly, I’m not much of a game player, but I have five kids, so there were several in my home waiting to test this game! What’s funny is that the youngest in our home, the six-year-old, loved it most!
I sat down and introduced it to her on my Windows laptop computer. We played several puzzles together to figure it out. Let me show you how we did it.
The first thing you’ll see when you log in (we logged in through my Facebook) is a calendar. It’s “Daily Bible Jigsaw” for a reason. Each day has a puzzle to solve, and when the month is complete, you’ll see a completed photo. Since we started in April, we were excited to see that we could go back to the early part of the month and play the previous days. That’s how we practiced.
- Rotate: this was great for the six-year-old as it turned all the pieces they way they would appear on the puzzle
- Guide: you get a sneak peek at the completed picture — again, very helpful for my six-year-old to see what she was trying to accomplish (this will cost 2 coins)
- Sweep: does just what it says…sweeps all the pieces out of your way to the edges of the screen; you can still see them but they’re not in the puzzle space
- Magnet: this attaches two pieces for you; we rarely ever use this feature
- Edges: this moves all the pieces out of your way until you put the edge pieces together; we only used this occasionally
And once a puzzle is solved, the Bible verse appears. My daughter enjoyed this fun “prize” at the end of each game. Since she’s not a reader yet, she would show me her completed puzzle to read for her.
Here are the current options for playing Daily Jigsaw:
- Google Play (Android devices)
- Apple App Store (iOS devices)
- Facebook (Mac or PC computer web browser…Chrome and Firefox work best)
- Facebook Gameroom (PC computer, Facebook’s new PC game platform similar to Steam)
We used it on my iPhone 6 as well as my PC computer. My daughter preferred the touch-screen option on the iPhone.
