Curious what the best jigsaw puzzles of 2020 are? Well you’ve come to the right place. We went to the largest online community for jigsaw puzzle fans located on Reddit, r/jigsawpuzzles.

Due to the pandemic, puzzles have become more popular. Therefore, new puzzles you want may be in short supply. An alternative is to check for used puzzles on Craigslist, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. Lastly, exchanging puzzles on r/jigsawpuzzles subreddit or Nextdoor is another option.
Notably, key highlights of what we discovered in the analysis:
- Identified over 5000 different puzzles.
- More than 120 different puzzle brands.
- Most of the best puzzles have brilliant colors, amazing illustration, and high difficulty level.
- Some of the popular puzzles focused solely on extreme difficulty.
Firstly, we mined all submissions posted on the subreddit r/jigsawpuzzles from start of January 1, 2020 to end of November 30, 2020 at GMT time . Secondly, we discarded duplicate submissions. Third, we only counted submissions with an identifiable brand, title, and number of pieces. In addition, each puzzle needs to have at least three submissions during the time frame to qualify. Rank is based on the aggregated vote total for all counted posts of qualified puzzles.
