Stay grounded as the summer months roll on with these latest offerings from The Op Puzzles, whose common theme is the surface beneath our feet—whether it’s lurking a mini graveyard, running through the woods for your life, or pulling up turnips in a simulation game. Dark and nostalgic or adventurous and animated, there’s a terrain-related setting behind every visual in this month’s high contrast Fixated series’ collection.
“Undying” could describe dark comedy icon Beetlejuice’s infatuation with morbidly fascinated Lydia Deetz, but the pair isn’t so strange and unusual in rushed-wedding garb for their “Graveyard Wedding”, a third-dimensional 19×27” collage featuring the poltergeist himself and his desired bride-to-be, for ages 9 and up. Get the same green and purple-schemed madness in just over half the amount of pieces with “The Ghost with the Most”, whose moment in the sandworm spotlight is captured in a 18”x24” puzzle, also available where you buy games.
Staying away from campgrounds this summer doesn’t have to mean missing the shade from Jason Vorhees, who’s back to finish business in the form of a puzzle for “Friday the 13th”. For ages 17 and up, its 1,000 pieces create a portrait of the disgruntled murderer’s goalie mask, but for fans who can’t get enough of Jason’s surprise appearances, get your hands on Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake, the first officially licensed board game based on the 80s horror franchise, and a limited edition—so don’t wait for the next Friday the 13th in November.
Spade up some relaxation and settle into the comfort of this “New Horizons” 1,000-piece Animal Crossing puzzle, where Beau, Vesta, Pekoe, Daisy Mae and more join you in planting and crafting pieces on your Island until it’s your turn to play with the Switch. For ages 9 and up.
We learned from Stephen King’s classic tale of IT that as “down to earth” small town life can be, you don’t want to lower yourself to any gutters in Derry, Maine, where shape-shifting monster Pennywise is set on snatching up the town’s youth every 27 years. Capture the clown yourself in “Return to Derry”, a postcard-esque illustration based on the 2019 sequel of the film’s remake IT: Chapter Two (and not-so-friendly reminder to stay away from sewers). For ages 17 and up.
