Charles Wysocki’s Prairie Wind Flowers is the quintessential Americana themed jigsaw puzzle from Buffalo Games. Overall, a fun, charming, and moderately challenging puzzle for Wysocki fans.
One of the first 1000pc puzzle that we ever reviewed was a Charles Wysocki puzzle from Milton Bradley called Country Garden. Moreover, here is our first puzzle review video show casing Country Garden.
Surprisingly, we have more than ten Charles Wysocki puzzles from Milton Bradley and Buffalo Games combined in our collection. However, we have only completed three including this one so far. Most of Wysocki’s painting are renowned for having an “Americana” theme, which features a rustic farming community with American flags and horses and buggies.
As expected, Charles Wysocki’s Prairie Wind Flowers contain those Americana imagery with a majestic blue farmhouse and flower nursery, American flags, and numerous horse with buggies.
Our strategy for solving Prairie Wind Flowers was to sort for the border pieces and the main distinctive areas first. In no particular order, the main distinctive areas were the blue shake siding farm house, overcast sky, and green open fields. The other portions, such as smaller farm houses, road, and stone wall were also distinctive enough to easily sort.
Undoubtedly, Prairie Wind Flowers was a fairly straightforward puzzle to solve. The illustration made sorting easy, which in turn, made assembling easy as well. It took four people about three hours and twenty five minutes (3:23:47) to complete the puzzle. Overall, a moderately challenging puzzle with a bucolic and tranquil Americana illustration. Highly recommended for any Charles Wysocki fans out there.
