As the owner of dozens of Victory Gold Box puzzles I was naturally pleased to hear from the BCD that the name was being revised and more puzzles created. Having bought Butlins Clacton on Sea I find that the reality. is even better than I had hoped. When I first opened the box I wondered whether the new Victories would suffer from the same difficulty as early Wentworth puzzles: a black and over obvious cutting line but it turns out that these new puzzles have the most invisible line of any puzzle in my collection. What is more the whimsies are abundant and highly inventive. We enjoyed doing this puzzle more than any other in a long time. Only one possible improvement: boxes without pictures for those of us who prefer to work without a guide or any idea of the final appearance - just like Victory Gold Box puzzles (though with pictures available for those who prefer). A terrific renaissance!
This was a really fun puzzle to do. The newer, thicker pieces have a fabulous feel in the hand and make for a much more enjoyable puzzling experience. The Butlins puzzle has really lush colour and a joyful image, making it a puzzle well worth spending a few hours with! I think it's great value for money.
What a joy this was to do ! The new 5mm thickness is superb, and the selection of whimsy pieces just wonderful. Had a fun afternoon yesterday completing this . ❤️❤️❤️❤️
