The Golden Jigsaw Gets Underway!

Posted on: July 19th, 2007 by Jason 59 Comments

A brand new competition, from Infinite Ideation Limited, kicks off on July 20th and it could mean that one lucky person ends up one million dollars better off. The Golden Jigsaw is a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, but the pieces of the puzzle are scattered all over the internet. Your task is to locate the pieces by solving clues – solve the clues and complete the puzzle before anyone else and you’ll win the prize. The game starts on July 20th and is expected to run for at least six months!

To take part in The Golden Jigsaw you need to register and download your own personal playing board. Solve the clues to lead you to the pieces! When you find a piece of the jigsaw you simply drag it into your playing board.

We advise all participants to familiarise themselves with the rules as there are some important things to remember. For example “If any player makes public in any way the fact that they have finished the Golden Jigsaw during the period between the last clue being released and the winner being announced, they will immediately be disqualified”.

The Golden Jigsaw is dependent on advertisers purchasing pieces of the puzzle in order to take part, so there is a chance that the game may not reach the full 1000 pieces. If this happens, according to the rules, “the prize value will be 50% of all monies received by Infinite Ideation Limited in respect of the Golden Jigsaw project”.

    This is a hard one. Loquax is HUGE, and we need to find one piece. Eep.

  3. julespage72 says:

    I’ve been searching loquax for around 40 minutes and nothing so far!!!!

  4. puddledchicken says:

    i’ve been looking for hours and still not found it!!

  5. elaineduncan says:

    I was hoping they would be nice and put a piece with this story, Wishfull thinking on my part

  6. Amiijoanne says:

  7. Snookie says:

  8. dijosmit says:

  9. annmacdonald says:

    anyone found it yet??

  10. wolve says:

    no nothin yet been lookin for hrs. has anyone found the other 10?

  11. mazdra says:

    Where to start? It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack!

  12. stevegreenaway says:

    No – I can’t find it either!

  13. goldenjigsawsucksass says:

    I reckon golden jigsaw has screwed up here… how many subscribers do you think they’ve lost today, by allowing such a huge site to host one of their pieces? How many people will have the patience or time to look for the piece?! Unbelievable. I presume you need to sign up to be able to access the right page. What a dirty ploy.

  14. kirsty says:

    There’s no need to join Loquax to find the jigsaw piece. The piece is hosted on http://www.loquax.co.uk/

    thanks
    kirsty

  15. kchang says:

    Kirsty

    Can you give us a clue

    Thanks

  16. kirsty says:

    I can’t give out clues sorry. Just, as I say, that it’s on http://www.loquax.co.uk/ and not any of the other subdomains of loquax and we haven’t hidden it away so deeply as to make it impossible to find (people have been trawling through old forum threads etc, there’s no need to do anything like that.)

  17. goldenjigsawsucksass says:

    Ok, so out of the 36,000 odd pages you have indexed on Google, it’s in one of the most prominent what?…. 200?! Hmmm

  18. goldenjigsawsucksass says:

    So there are 1000 pieces altogether in the golden jigsaw puzzle… it strikes me as an awful lot of time and effort just to find one piece. Reckon i’ll call it a day. Apologies if i’m being a bit defeatist!

  19. colindunn1981 says:

    Honestly, i’v been here forever and dont say it’s not impossibly hidden away, cause it is

  20. jane Rhodes says:

    I’ve tried for two day now to find this piece on here and no luck yet, the first ten were on one page on their site. This will put people off looking as there is no hint of the right page to look at it is only one piece after all.

  21. skunky187 says:

    HEY ALL SKUNKY 187 HERE I HAVE ALL 11 PIECES GENIUS OR WHAT!!!

  22. fooby says:

    yes thanks for that skunky … feel much better now!

    cheers

  23. WillowFreya says:

    Ok, i have the first 10, but still looking for number 11! But i am st stubbun to give up!

  24. fooby says:

    For Kirsty: I have found pieces on another site much more simply so I ask the question ….

    Is the animated gif on the homepage supposed to be a link? Because I cannot click on it?

  25. kirsty says:

    No, that’s just to show you’re looking on the right site; it’s not supposed to be a link. The jigsaw piece can be found in two clicks from the home page.

  26. Beardownman says:

    I ‘ve Found It!!
    Although it took me more than 2 clicks.

  27. fooby says:

    thanks Kirsty for clearing that up.

    I’ve been looking for hours now with no joy, so I think I’ll come back to this one at a later date when I get some inspiration from the gods of jigsaw 🙂

  28. julespage72 says:

    Yay found it!! Although when I went back to the first site to look for the 4 pieces i still hadn’t found, even the ones I found yesterday have disappeared 🙁

  29. tim1510 says:

  30. simonerrey says:

    can you help with the first clue?

  31. saralp says:

    i’ve been looking 4 ages now, 2 hours yesterday and about 3 today and i just cannot find it, getting really fed up

  32. julespage72 says:

    Panic over, have them all now, bring on Clue 3!!!

  33. lornaforse says:

  41. chilliboy99 says:

    i know its only two clicks away but two clicks can do a lot to you!! ha

  42. macca6172 says:

    There does appear to be some sort of problem with finding this piece.

  43. jason says:

    Macca6172 – we have located the problem you described and have fixed it. Thanks for highlighting.

    Chilliboy99 – see the comment at 5.41pm and read what it says and follow the instructions.

  44. macca6172 says:

    Just tested it and it’s working now. Excellent response time btw – very good to know. Gratz on a good site – now I’m registered I might stick around 😉

    Should make finding the piece a lot easier for all now.

  45. jennywxy says:

    I have found the piece for clue number 3 so now have all 12 so far, but I must be even more daft than I thought as I cant see the connection between the rhyme clue and where the piece actually is. I know that no-one can say much but is there a connection of sorts?I found it more by luck than any skill! Jx

  46. chilliboy99 says:

    i found clue number 3 but im still looking for number 2. wish me luck!

  47. robbieroo says:

    Hi, I’ve been looking for this piece for absolutely ages now. I found a link, but when I clicked on it last night and this morning, it comes up as page not found. Have I found it but the problem I read about before is back, or is this the wrong link?

  48. kirsty says:

    No links have been changed. If you email me the link you have (kirsty@loquax.com) I might be able to see what’s happened.

  49. chilliboy99 says:

    i love whoever put the CLUE up on the site!!!!!!!!!. it is just such a relief to finally find the piece. anyone looking for it keep ur eyes peeled. :):):):)

  50. chilliboy99 says:

    ive got all 12 pieces now just waiting for the fourth clue. woo hoo!!!!!!!

  51. robbieroo says:

    At long last!!! I found it. Went back and read the info properly. Great clue!!!

  52. kebab says:

    Well I have found the loquax piece (my first) but I can’t move it over to the playing board. What am I doing wrong?

    Kebab

  53. simeon says:

    guys it isnt tht hard trust, i have all pieces n have positioned them all on bord ! woooo

  54. penguin7 says:

    where did you get the 10 from? Were they on the original golden jigsaw site?

  55. dianemez says:

    can i just ask is the piece of jigsaw the same size as the first 10 coz i have been searching for more than 2 days now and i see the clue but looked everywhere on what i think will be the correct pages and cant find it!

  56. jason says:

    Yes, it’s the same size as the first 10.

  57. chilliboy99 says:

    can anyone solve the anagram to clue number 4?

  58. kirsty says:

    I think about all that can usefully be said on this blog entry has been said now 🙂
