Jigsaw is the fifth puzzle mini-game unlocked when playing the Secret Society: Hidden Mystery. The object is to move the puzzle pieces to the field inside the frame to complete a picture within a certain amount of time. The pictures are comprised of game scenes which the player has unlocked.
Jigsaw is available to play when a player reaches level 7 in the game; however you must first investigate locations to receive the 5 pieces that will unlock it. Once this is done, you will be asked to pay 4,000 coins and then the full mini-game will be accessible to play.
Jigsaw was introduced during the Call from the Depths Update (May 2017).
How To PlayEdit
First a picture will appear. Remember the picture. After tapping on the 'Play' button, the picture will break into pieces and you will need to reassemble it.
Tools in JigsawEdit
There are two tools available to use while playing Jigsaw. Using a Time Machine in Jigsaw will add 45 seconds to the timer. Using an Explorer's Eye once in Jigsaw will correctly connect 2 random puzzle pieces in their proper place and using it more than once will place 1 random puzzle piece in its proper place in the frame with each use.
Hints and TipsEdit
The Jigsaw puzzles get more and more complicated the further you advance in the game. In later levels there are often many pieces in the puzzle area that you must first rotate in order to fit them properly. A puzzle piece may be rotated 90 degrees by clicking or tapping on it. You then drag the piece to its proper place in the frame until all pieces form a complete picture.
Every Jigsaw puzzle is solvable without the use of Explorer's Eyes, but they can be very useful when facing a new puzzle for the first time. Once you can solve the puzzle with 1 or 2 pieces placed you will have a better understanding of how to solve the puzzle with the other pieces.
Try to complete the picture before the timer at the top of the screen runs out! If time runs out, you will be given the option to use a Time Machine. If you decline this option, your consecutive puzzle streak will be reset to 0.
If a Time Talisman is activated, it will increase time to investigate all pictures and puzzles, including Jigsaw, by 60 seconds for 24 hours. Time Talismans are made by combining certain collections on the Artefacts tab of the Collections section.
Resource Demands and Rewards for PlayingEdit
Jigsaw is a Collection Item only Puzzle. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, Quest Items (if a Quest is currently active for Jigsaw) and event puzzle challenge items (if Jigsaw is used as the challenge puzzle). The list of potential rewards for Jigsaw is made up of 10 Collections:
- Log cabin supplies
- Naturalist's equipment
- Rarest animals
- Signs of Bigfoot
- Wildlife photography
- Model aircrafts
- Mysterious Mr. Connors
- Artifacts from Amazonia
- Flight data recorder
- Author's things
When Jigsaw is first opened, it is at Novice level, and only the items from the Log cabin supplies collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Puzzle is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.
The amount of energy required to play Jigsaw will increase as the level of the Puzzle is increased. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Puzzle will also increase to match the increase in resource demands:
