The unregistered version of this jigsaw puzzle game, comes with 3 puzzles; also, while the registered version lets you break the puzzle into 2-50 pieces across, and 2-40 pieces down, the unregistered version allows you to break it down no further than 10 by 10. If you register this program, you will receive a collection of 16 high-quality puzzle images of Civil War battlefield re-enactment's, plus a special utility that lets you turn any image into a puzzle image compatible with this program. Registration cost $20 plus $5 for shipping and handling. There is also a catalog, that comes with many many different sets of images that you can order to go with this program.

Once you have scrambled the puzzle, you left click on any piece and then right click where you think it goes. When you put a piece in the correct spot you hear a tone, and the piece is locked in. Once a piece is locked in, it will not move again, so you can't make mistakes. There is a small toolbar next to the puzzle, with 10 commands. The only ones I used very much, were '?' which showed to be different commands available, and the one that showed you a small picture of the puzzle you were trying to build.

The pictures are excellent quality, and since you can adjust the number of pieces in the puzzle, you can make it as easy or as hard as you like. That makes this a program for the whole family.
