That actually looks pretty hard, I cant even begin to put any two pieces together.

It looks hard, because it only has five colours, but if you collect the ones with similar patterns they should start to line up kind of easily. (though I can't really quite gauge the difficulty because I already know what it's supposed to look like).

I think I can make out some letters, but I don't know, I haven't got any puzzle so far.
I've not got anything interesting to type here..

ive now spent like 2 hours trying to get this puzzle, and its driving me nuts, so i thought i'd share what i've "accomplished" so far, in hopes that someone else sees something in my mess and can finish it...

it doesn't look like anything to me, but each tile in the big chunks doesn't really seem to fit anywhere else. Maybe i've just stred at it too long and i'll get laughed at in a minute, but oh well :)

whats interesting (to me at least) is that the straight bits where it seems to not fit well are mostly on the tiles themselves, not in the border between them... thats why i've joined it up like this.

Anyway, i cant stand looking at this any longer, enjoy!

I tried, and mine looked nothing like your segments.  Tough nut to crack.  Maybe even impossible, unlike real jigsaw puzzles, there is no one correct way.

Indeed the big problem here is ambivalence. There are lots of combinations which look like they are making sense, regardless of being right or not.
Same goes for Bob's castle. There are some tiles which are interchangable and it would not look broken. I urge people who are making puzzles that they make less noisy stuff and check that they do not have tiles which are pretty much identical.

Also, I would say, everyone should feel free to post a new puzzle if the newest one is not solved after 24 hours. This way we can keep this thing going.
Nothing speaks against having more than one puzzle open either.

Keep on puzzling
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Okay, I think I should retract this one - it seems pretty unlikely that anyone will solve it, and, looking at mikeG's interpretation I can see where I messed up. I feel bad for posting such a broken puzzle.

Should I just post the solution or something?

Please do not. Maybe someday anyone will solve it. I'd love to try this one and I don't like to skip this thread until then ;)

Yeah, Tocky, no spoiling!
Just make sure to not make such a blocky one next time, ok? :D
I like SO wanted to solve that one, but almost all of the pieces fit 'equally well'.
Darn! I'm sure it's something awesome once you assemble it...
