The Wasgij releases include the 12th Wasgij Christmas puzzle, titled The Big Turn On!, which comes with two 1,000-piece puzzles for the price of one.

Supporting the launch of the Christmas Wasgij puzzle is the Wasgij Original 24: A Very Merry Holiday 1,000-piece and the second instalment of the Wasgij Back to…? concept, titled A 14th Century Castle. Also new to the Wasgij range is the Wasgij Destiny Collector’s Box Set Vol 1 that consists of three 1,000-piece puzzles, and is now priced at a reduced price to drive higher consumer sales this autumn/winter.

Other highlights include 11 new additions to the Falcon de Luxe range, such as the All Ready for Christmas 2 x 1,000-piece box set, that gives consumers a free 1,000-piece puzzle. Alongside this Christmas set is a range of puzzles covering Nostalgia, Transport, Animals and scenery across piece counts from 200XL, 500, 1,000 and 4 x 1,000-pieces. Falcon fans can expect the 40th anniversary celebrations to continue with further releases in September.

Jumbo will also see further launches of new licensed puzzles, such as two 1,000-piece and two 500-piece Studio Pets puzzles and a 500-piece The Simpsons puzzle.

“Launching more than 20 new puzzles this month is really exciting for us,” said Stewart Middleton, managing director at Jumbo Games. “Adult puzzles continue to be a core focus for us at Jumbo and these new additions will continue to drive the substantial increase in sales that we have been seeing this year.”
