VOTE FOR DAVE WASGIJ!
We have team up with our Number 1 Wasgij jigsaw puzzles to announce the launch of ourfirst political campaign, backing candidate Dave Wasgij in the political build up to the May General Election.
As the political agenda heats up and parties rally to gain support, Wasgij will also be found hot on the campaign trail with its political leader, Dave Wasgij guiding the way. As with every party figurehead, Dave has a vision of unity, of bringing friends, family and the country closer together and his agenda truly reflects these values.
When commenting on the campaign Dave said, “I have a dream where families talk and joke while puzzling together. Where people who struggle to fit into society, like the wrong piece of a jigsaw, are helped to feel like part of the solution, which in turn can help us all see the bigger picture.”
With this ethos it is of little surprise Dave believes that, through puzzling, he can make a divided country fit together once again. A carefully crafted manifesto has been pieced together which if victorious, will see a range of positive introductions into Britain’s society. Jigsaw libraries will appear in towns across the UK, the senior sector of society will receive free jigsaws complimented by a winter jigsaw allowance, compulsory jigsaw breaks will be introduced into the working day to help employee’s refresh and National Puzzle Day marked as a national holiday on the calendar. Dave would also see that the art of jigsawing is added to the national curriculum, so the younger generation can help piece the country back together.
In spirit of the campaign, three x1000 piece themed jigsaw puzzles from the No.1 favourite adult puzzle brand*, Wasgij, have been created, each centered on the possible fictitious outcomes of the 2015 General Election. The new Wasgij Imagine…? jigsaws hit the shelves this month with the special general election themed editions crowned Best New Toy at the 2015 London Toy Fair.
The three selected political parties do not bare any political preferences on Jumbo’s behalf but simply represent the three main UK political parties running in the General Election. Both the image on the box and the three different outcomes reflect the artist’s fun impressions in the Wasgij style its fans love.
With voting in May fast approaching Jumbo Games is urging people to get behind their leader and vote Wasgij. Together communities can rally behind Dave Wasgij and work to unify a county and maybe one day achieve world piece.
Wasgij Imagine…? General Election puzzles are available now from Argos, TRU, Amazon.co.uk, Alljigsawpuzzles.co.uk and Jigsawpuzzlesdirect.co.uk. RRP £12.99 each.

WASGIJ WINS BEST NEW TOY AWARD!

The image on the box depicts key political figures in the House of Commons taking part in a heated debate. Despite the Speaker trying to maintain some form of order, the scene is a picture of chaos with misbehaving MP’s and some familiar faces dotted around from past and present day. Depending on which version of the jigsaw is chosen, puzzlers will need to figure out what the Wasgij ‘solution’ of the jigsaw will be should the selected party wins.
Each variation of the jigsaw puzzle will contain 1000 pieces and the boxes are colour coded to reflect the political party. Red will be visible on Wasgij Imagine…? Labour Wins The General Election!, yellow will feature on Wasgij Imagine…? The Liberal Democrats Win The General Election! and blue can be found on Wasgij Imagine…?

BRAND NEW WASGIJ IMAGINE…? GENERAL ELECTION SPECIALS!
The General Election is fast approaching and the three main political parties, Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrats, are all campaigning for your support - but let’s imagine the votes are in already and the announcement is about to be made!
Depending on which version of these Wasgij Imagine…? General Election puzzles you choose to piece together, you need to imagine that you are celebrating with that specific political party and piece together how they will celebrate their victory – this is the final puzzle scene you piece together to create the Wasgij ‘solution’ image. All of the three puzzles have a completely different Wasgij ‘solution’ to enjoy building – so will you discover the solution to all three?
Each of the three different General Election puzzle boxes are colour coded to help identify the puzzle you have chosen to enjoy – Conservative (Blue), Labour (Red) and Liberal Democrats (Yellow). All three puzzles share the same box image that depicts a busy House of Commons as the House Speaker is trying to gain some order and control, but is being ignored from all the boisterous ‘chatter’ from the political members involved. Can also spot a few recognisable political faces from past to present taking part in this debate?
Wasgij Imagine…? is the brainteaser puzzle concept where you have to work out what would happen to the scene in the puzzle box image if the daydream came true. Use your imagination and puzzle what might happen if imagination really did become reality! Remember, only the puzzle holds the answer!
We would love to hear what you think of the new Wasgij Imagine…? General Election puzzles, so if you have a Facebook account then pop over to Facebook.com/WasgijPuzzles and let us know.
