Puzzles are there to make you think and provide you with a challenge. However, in our time looking at the best puzzles around, we have noticed that there are some super cool puzzles, puzzles so cool that you will stick up both thumbs and give out an “Ayyy!” when you see them.

Of course, you might already know "Ayyy!" is a tribute to the coolest cat around, The Fonz from Happy Days, and if you do not, you better “Sit On It” and watch a few episodes!

Puzzles are always going to be something that gets your brain ticking and makes you think, however, here at Geek’s Oasis we also feel that puzzles should be fun!

Who actually wants to complete a puzzle with an image of a vase of flowers when you could be putting together an image of Spider-Man kicking Venom in the face?

These puzzles we are looking at today will still challenge you mentally, and have you working out your fine motor skills and all the other things that puzzles are supposed to do!

However, we can assure you that you will also have more fun than Homer Simpson would if Lard Lad Donuts were giving away free donuts!

We've been working hard to find the coolest products for you that will make your life easier and more fun. Each product has been independently selected by our editors. Geek's Oasis may collect a share of sales from the links on this page if you decide to buy something - that's how we stay in business. Clicking the links will not add any cost to you.

Are We The Deciders Of What Is Cool?

You may be wondering, what exactly makes the folks in the Geek’s Oasis office worthy of putting together a list of cool puzzles? Well, we like to think that we are a pretty cool bunch, and just looking around the office right now, everyone is wearing at least one thing that shows off something they are a fan of!

Ultimately, if we feel the image the puzzle makes is cool, we decided it deserved a spot on our list!

Millions of us still love Harry Potter and what we feel makes this particular Paladone Harry Potter Movie Collage worthy of a spot on our cool puzzles list is that the image it creates is an awesome collage of the most iconic characters from the movie series.

From Harry to Volder…. Whoa, that was really close, we nearly said his name and probably would have cursed this whole list! Anyway, it has a ton of characters on it and that makes this not only look cool but much more challenging to put each of those 1000 pieces in their rightful place.

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

Many of us here in the Geek’s Oasis are gamers and most of us have a love for retro gaming - that is why we felt this epic Springbok's 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle Gamer's Trove puzzle had to take a featured spot on our cool puzzles list!

This is a very cool collage-style image that features a ton of epic gaming systems. We have stuff from the late 70s and 80s such as the Atari 2600 and the NES. We also have some iconic consoles that were huge in the 90s such as the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and the Super Nintendo.

Looking at all the consoles and games that make up this 1000-piece puzzle is going to be just as much fun as completing it!

Technically the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive is an 80s console as it came out in 1989, but it did not hit its stride until the 90s and a certain blue hedgehog became Sega’s mascot!

FAQs About Cool Puzzles

If you have some questions about cool puzzles, check out our nifty little FAQ section as we are here to help make your puzzle experience cooler than the other side of the pillow!

What Makes A Puzzle Cool?

Look, in all honesty, no one can tell you what is cool. If you think something is cool then it is cool! It is as simple as that. If you think an image of Luke blowing up the Death Star is cool, we are right there with you. 

If you think an image of Peppa Pig skipping in the mud wearing yellow shoes is cool, we might not agree with you, but if you think it is cool, that is all that matters! The bottom line is if you think it’s cool, it is cool!

Are Cool Puzzles Easier To Do?

Hmm, we would not say that the fact you think a puzzle is cool automatically makes it easier. However, what we will say is that if you think the image you are making is fun and cool, you will be far less likely to lose interest or get frustrated putting the puzzle together.

The list that we have put together here is mostly for quite experienced puzzlers (or not for small kids at least) with piece counts of mostly 1000 pieces but of course a nice fun activity for the whole family as well!

Cool Board Games Or Cool Jigsaw Puzzles?

Jigsaw puzzles and board games are both great options for indoor entertainment, but it's important to keep one thing in mind - jigsaw puzzles can be done alone, but most board games require at least two players.

Some Parting Cool Thoughts From Some Real Cool Cats!

Yeah, that is right we do feel like we are a cool bunch here at Geek’s Oasis…. Well, we like stuff that is cool, but if we are actually cool - we guess that is kind of debatable.

Anyway, as we have said a couple of times as we have looked at some really cool puzzles today. What is cool is always subjective.

If you like a puzzle, think that it looks fun, and are comfortable with how many pieces it is, go for it! That is exactly the kind of puzzle that you will have a fun time putting together and at the end of the day, a jigsaw puzzle is all about you having fun!

Happy Puzzling!
