For years, I have been using TheJigsawPuzzles.com. It has a database of thousands of puzzles, sorted by category. You can choose from 20 to 500 pieces and there are several different cut styles.

It's a good site, I hadn't seen it until now. Thanks for the heads up.

Where's thejigsawpuzzles.com? Love this site, no downloading of anything, just play on site. Have been using this site for years now and was concerned about the phaseout of Adobe Flash, but they said they are ready for the change over. You can choose how many pieces you want to do in any of the hundreds of puzzles there. Also choose the type of puzzle pieces you want to work with...classic, etc.. You can Full Screen, if needed, any puzzle to work on it. My 92-yr-old Mom had been doing a puzzle every day for yrs before she passed. Cannot say about doing any on a mobile phone though.

Can say the people there are great...any problem just email and they get back to you within 24 hours, if not sooner. BTW, you do not have to sign in or even have an account to do any puzzle, though the site will keep track of all the puzzles you do if you sign in...unlike Jigzone and a few others where you have to try to remember which ones you've done in the past.

That's a great site, thanks for mentioning it. :)

You're very welcome. I love jigsaw puzzles too, digital or printed.

Thanks rhiannon.. nice sites. I love the jigsaw puzzles.
