No one can knock Robbie off THAT perch . . . except maybe Lela! LOLPat, you KNOW that I'm the good girl. I wouldn't do that! :~)
Oops! I missed your follow up comment Pat! And thank you. That's right. Mischievous Jan started it, and then tried to blame me!! Look out, she'll be pushing Robbie off his perch of naughtiest kid in Jigidi!! LOL
Jan, I'm sorry to point this out, but it was NOT Kirsten who started it, but YOU, with your very first comment about quadriptych! So you have only yourself to blame! Of course, that means that we have you to thank for all the fun with this name-game! :-)))
Thanks, Mandy! That will certainly be "interesting!" LOL
Love the concept Jan - and good luck sorting out what to call it in future!!! Thanks!
So, we now have: kaleidotetraptych, Kal-tych, Polyptych, Half-Fours and QuadKals. Hmmmmmmmm........
Hee, hee!!And I'll have you know that I speek gooder English!! LOLAnd, for it's simplicity, I like QuadKals!!!
BonnieJack - that is Great name! I love it!So, we now have: kaleidotetraptych, Kal-tych, Polyptych and Half-Fours! Hmmmmmmmm........
Beautiful. Good job well done Jan.How about Half-fours?
PJ - Your English is better than Kirsten's Australian and my American versions of English! I think 'Kal-tych' is good! Doing more research (I have no idea why), I have found that there is a more general term used for multiple panel artworks. It is POLYPTYCH. However, "TYCH" means fold and these art pieces were usually hinged. So, we could avoid these difficult words altogether and simply call them kaleido panels or "Kaleidos X 4" or QuadKals. LOLKirsten - you started all this nonsense!!
Copy and paste is fine, and it's a wondrous word - but what about us who will have to try reading it? OK, English is not my first language, so I suggest 'kal-tych'....PJ
Copy and paste, my love. Copy and paste!!!!
Kirsten - I am dying here! Can you imagine trying to use that "name" every time you post one! LOL. But, it IS a great name, so who knows!!!
You are such an innovator Jan! First you invent kaleido boards, a whole new genre for Jigidi. And now a quadriptych!!! Brilliant!! And I LOVE the name, and think you should keep it.Or you could run a competition for your fans to find a new word. They're a clever bunch your fans, with some real wordsmiths amongst them. And some imaginative folks, who make it up as they go along, but sell it so convincingly, that it's totally believable!!I'd like to kick things off with a kaleidotetraptych!!!
Jan, you are so creative! I love this new layout!
Thank you so much, Judy! Coming from such a talented puzzler as yourself, I am very flattered! Now that Christmas is over, I will be experimenting more.
Wonderful idea and beautiful execution. You produced a real work of art. Thanks for using all of your tools! Keep bringing them on; we love it!!!
Sorry to discombobulate all of you! But, we gotta have fun with new ideas and new avatars!(no, it is not Maggie, Ardy, it's a "cousin.":D
Try 4 halves = one whole. Hope now my comment is correctly completed. LOL
BTW - Great puzzle. Love the concept and your use of it. I know about triptychs but this is my first introduction to quadriptychs Thanks, Jan.
There are four halves here, right? And one puzzle, right? Therefore, 4 halves + one whole.I've been wondering who the dog is in this avatar. Please don't tell me it's Maggie with both eyes made white. And while all the changes have been cute and great and delightful, I'm ready for smiling Maggie to come back.
Jan - so nice, fun, confusing, logical - and innovative!!!! Glad to see your new ideas ....PJ
Awww, why not?! That sounds so wonderfully precise and confusing at the same time! LOL!
You know how WE like to fiddle with our tools! This one was fun to do! I'm glad you liked it. However, it will NOT be called a quadriptych! LOL
Oh, my, another Jiggy invention, like boards! Super cool!!!!!!!! Love the concept and the execution! :-)))))))))
