Major Pickle was a time honoured and well traveled British explorer. His expeditions took him around the world, no one really knows where (or when) he traveled but the stories of his exploits vary far. From his encounters with bizarre beasts in the Himalayas, to his journeys more than 20,000 leagues under the sea where he came across a range of nautical oddities. Major Pickle was a private man, he loved a challenge and a good puzzle.
While little evidence of the Majors exploits exists he created a range of puzzles that we have searched far and wide to bring to you today. Each of these retro classics have a set of 14 tiles shaped as ‘L’s; ‘T’s; ‘I’s and ‘Z’s. The task is simple, fit the tiles all together so they form an 8×8 square with the pictures creating a light and dark chequerboard. No one really understands the meaning behind the Majors puzzles, were they just a bit of fun, or do they contain hidden clues to his adventures, or a map to unclaimed treasures.
