HOST YOUR OWN MODERN OLYMPICS.

Spin, spin, spin, throw! Run, run, run, throw! Many of us know of the shotput and javelin from the Olympics, either from individual sports, or from the grueling decathlon. First appearing in the modern Olympics in 1896 and 1908, respectively, these two activities date back thousands of years, though only the javelin throw was part of the Ancient Olympic Games.

Now they are recreated by True Genius to be challenging puzzles. The Shotput (difficulty 4/4) is made of rich, caramel colored wood pieces that fit together, one way only, to form a round sphere. Study it closely, and examine each piece as you take it out! Then, reassemble it. If you can. The Javelin (difficulty 2/4) is an easier puzzle, made of contrasting metal loops. Can you untangle them? If you can, how do they go back together? Challenge your friends and host your own mini Olympics, seeing who can figure them out in the fastest time. Just don’t fling them, k?

Fallout 4 Museum of Freedom 1000pc Puzzle

Your first encounter with the Minutemen has you running around the Museum of Freedom taking out a group of attacking Raiders. While that visit is certainly memorable, it doesn’t give you the full experience and a chance to enjoy the museum to the fullest. Well, that is just a crime in itself. We think you need a proper viewing! But, you kind of shot the place up so you might need to put some of it back together. A puzzle is pretty true to life in that regard.
