This seems to have been taken near Cleveland, Ohio.
It is not seawater, but lake water.
It is near the Coast Guard Station.

I wish I knew how this puzzle was shared around the world so much that the puzzle site became so widely used.

Yes indeed. I've done this before but never for so many solves. It was fun! GO US! ☺

BarbaraL

1861000 Thank you patsquire more fun going up two at a time.

patsquire

OK, it's all yours!

BarbaraL

See you there.

patsquire

It's me! I came in at 855 and we're past 955 now. If you want to go for 1000 I'll keep going and you can have the last solve.

BarbaraL

We have done quite a few, just wondered who I am playing with.

bayhome43

LOLOLOL 😊❤️😊

patsquire

That was me, Beth! I saw the numbers rising so I joined in. I hit 1858000 by accident, thinking I'd be 1858001 after my next solve. But you can have 1859000, OK? ☺

bayhome43

1858001 !!!!!
Somebody snuck in there at 1858000 LOLOL!!
A day late and a dollar short, as my Dad used to say. 😊

patsquire

Good for you, Beth!

I've found that it's so easy to add a dozen or two solves in the 12-piece size every day in just 5 or 10 minutes. And it's fun, too. I think that's why our old time to reach 2,000,000 was 7 1/2 years but it has shrunk to just a little over 4 years!

bayhome43

Did lots of "resized to 12 pieces" today!! Trying to get to 185800 😊🌷

patsquire

Yes, same here. I don't even come anywhere close to my 42 seconds these days.

BarbaraL

I know every piece and where it goes, but I can't get near my old score.

patsquire

Good point! I've been resizing it to 12 pieces by clicking on "Change number of pieces" and getting a lot more solves in the same amount of time. They all count toward the total.

thurman

I last checked on this puzzle last night, but didn't have time to solve. I will certainly get back to it !!! Got to get my solve time in !!

patsquire

At this rate we're looking at December 31, 2027.

2,000,000 on New Years Eve! ☺ ☺ ☺

GREAT NEWS!

Since we've had the option of selecting the number of pieces we want to solve, our daily pace has increased a lot. For a long time we were over 7 years away from reaching 2,000,000 solves. But right now we're on a pace to get there in only a little over 4 years!

Syke

1849720 Still doing original puzzle. Best time so far is 1:39, but working on it. Just can't seem to get the bottom line together quickly enough. However, will still keep at it.

niccolino59

1849244. Still a great solve but I will never make the board!

Keep going, Bubble. I was stuck for several years at just over 1 minute and suddenly one day I finished, looked at my time, and found I had knocked off 9 seconds. My fastest is now 51 seconds even though most solves are just over 1 minute. And yes, I prefer to do it in the original size.

Bubble

Must have done this 50 times over the last few years but can never get under 1 min.

bayhome43

☺♥☺ . . . and I think you might have been doing some when I was yesterday!!

patsquire

You're welcome Beth, and you can call me Pat. ☺ I do some of this famous puzzle (sometimes quite a few) every day. I'll do some and then come back later and do some more. It's fun, and a regular part of my Jigidi day.

bayhome43

Thank you patsquire for the tip on the puzzle size!!

bayhome43

Wahoo! 521!

bayhome43

Wanted to note the 13th anniversary today, January 19, 2024 ☺♥☺ 1,848,508 solves!

patsquire

Good for you Chita! If you switch the puzzle size to 12 pieces you can do a couple of dozen in the time it took you to do 5 in the original 35 piece size!

chita1023

I added 5 solves getting it to 1848505 on Jan 19, 2024.

Joan is not on this name any more. Maybe try her on her other name.

Had to come celebrate the anniversary of this puzzle, Joan. Not sure when you check the numbers but right now there have been 1,848,386 solves and it's 1:11 pm. on the 19th.

pasta

Happy Anniversary!!! I've been doing this in 12 pieces, quick and easy way to add more solves. :)

Lia

I did my share!

Two more days.

@bevpuzzler8 Love that story. That's my kind of girl.

bevpuzzler8

Lots of stories of the blue and grey war.....Take care.

patsquire

Good for her! No, I didn't know that part of Civil War history. The first "paper" I ever wrote was in high school history class and it was about the Battle of Vicksburg. And the first pistol I ever fired was a genuine Model 1860 Colt .44 revolver that had probably seen service in the Civil War. When I moved to the south around the year 2000 I learned that southerners still call it The War of Northern Aggression! Thanks.

bevpuzzler8

@patsquire
did you know?
In 1854, ten-year-old Isabelle Boyd, known as "Belle" and later a noted spy for the Confederacy, moved to Martinsburg with her family, where her father Benjamin operated a general merchandise store. After the Civil War began, Benjamin joined the Second Virginia Infantry, which was part of the Stonewall Brigade. His wife Mary was thus in charge of the Boyd home when Union forces under General Robert Patterson took Martinsburg. When a group of Patterson's men tried to raise a Union flag over the Boyd home, Mary refused. One of the soldiers, Frederick Martin, threatened Mary, and Belle shot him. She was acquitted.

patsquire

8 days to go until our 13th Anniversary!

patsquire

As I said way below, Bubble, I solved this for more than 11 years before I finally made the Leaderboard. Most of the time I was just solving, but many times I put forth a real effort to improve my time. I couldn't believe it when I finally made it, after all these years!

Bubble

I thought my time of 1:37 was pretty fast but honestly its not a drop in the ocean compared to the LB. 🤔

ladywil

I did 3 more and i dont know what number we are on now.

ladywil

I can do a few

patsquire

Yes. I've been solving it with 12 pieces for quite a while now and it adds up. Once in a while I do it with the original 35 pieces just for old time's sake!

bevpuzzler8

I think it will.

ladywil

Merry Christmas to all.
I am happy to find this puzzle again, it was on my other profile.
If solve this with less pieces, does it still count?

ladywil2

@ladywil

patsquire

☺ ☺ ☺

thurman

@patsquire. So happy for you !!

Merry Christmas to you, too!

patsquire

Thanks! Merry Christmas!

Congratulations on your new house!

patsquire

I'm here!

I am now a West Virginia home owner located in Martinsburg, which is in the northeast tip of the state. I closed on the house Tuesday, the moving van arrived and unloaded Wednesday and I slept here for the first time Thursday night, December 21, 2023. This is my 16th state of residence in these 77 years - - 32% of America!

H O O R A Y !

thurman

Adding my wishes to all for a Merry Christmas !!

Syke

Merry Christmas everyone

Last time I checked I do not see this on the 404 page.. ...

patsquire

Thank you, and yes, it is an ideal house for me. ☺ ☺ ☺

thurman

So glad you found "your house". Sometimes we just fall in love with one and know it is perfect for us. That is what I did a few years ago. I so hope you have an uneventful move. 🤗🤗

patsquire

Thank you! ☺ ☺ ☺

Congratulations on your new house, @patsquire.

bevpuzzler8

👍❤️

patsquire

Indeed yes, my whole family is gathering here for Thanksgiving and a few days of packing up the house. I've got a good start on it but a lot more is needed. Thanks!

bevpuzzler8

@patsquire
Glad you found a place you like. Take care and keep safe. Get a whole lot of help moving.

patsquire

Hi everybody!

For the last week or so I've been house hunting in W. Virginia and Pennsylvania. I spent many dreary days seeing awful houses. Then yesterday, Sunday, I found a great house in West Virginia and made an offer on it. This morning I found out that my offer was accepted, so I will be moving from Tennessee to West Virginia in early December!

patsquire

Since September 1 we've been adding 60 solves a day.

patsquire

Good for you Syke! That's a number worth claiming.

Syke

@patsquire that would be me , it was fun !

patsquire

Wow! Who got the 1840000? That's a lot of zeros!

Congratulations Kw3sta! That's exciting, a huge improvement. While you're here could you please go back and delete your old comments? There are quite a few of them that aren't really relevant any more. Keep having fun! ☺

Kw3sta

New personal best! 51 seconds, down from 59.

1 837 222 :)

patsquire

That's good, Clive. I've been using the new 12-piece option to add solves. Of course, I still do it in the original 35 for the sake of nostalgia, too. ☺

CJ45

Added 10...1837160.

patsquire

Good news! We've been 12 years and even 14 years away from 2,000,000 in recent months, but with the new resizing option we are now ONLY 5 YEARS AWAY! Let's have fun!

CJ45

1836475.

thurman

I may try the 12, but I really like the challenge of the 35 !

patsquire

I've been solving puzzles more than once for 11 years. Sometimes 2 times, sometimes 200 times! It's not cheating! It's fun!

And I just did this in 12 pieces three times and the solve count went up every time, from 1836334 to -337.

I agree the path to 2,000,000 is now wide open. As of only a short while ago I recalculated and came up with a little over 12 years. Now we have a realistic time frame for reaching the magic number! ☺ ☺ ☺

CJ45

Yes I tried it and it works.

RandomWorship

I'm not sure how solving via resizing could be perceived as cheating. But resized solves definitely count - see info here:
https://www.jigidi.com/a/change-number-of-pieces/

thurman

I suppose you could also say it was "cheating" if you did a puzzle more than once, but this is really a nice scene and one of these days I will get it done in less than 2 minutes in it's original size. I love a challenge and I solve puzzles on a 5" x 11" laptop. This one with all the white just doesn't get easier with "practice". 😆😆

Bluebonnet

And again. So yes, resized solves do count. Which will no doubt displease some of the people eagerly waiting to get to 2 million. It seems like cheating. Still gonna take a while, though.

Bluebonnet

I just solved it with 12 pieces and the total went from 1836278 to 1836279.

thurman

That's what I was wondering. If you change the size, does it register as a solve?

jeribar8

Yeah, change the puzzle piece count with the new Jigidi thingy..

thurman

12 count?

jeribar8

We'll get to 2 million now before we all die with the new 12 count.
