Double Dilemma

CAM00311

Let’s begin with the box. This Springbok Puzzle from 1988 is called Double Dilemma. The front of the box we see an empty very intimidating looking crossword puzzle. I saw this in another M.C.C. Thrift store in Abbotsford and was immediately drawn to the black and white grid. I turned the box over to find actual crossword clues.

Here is a close up of the back of the box. I’m much more of a jigsaw puzzler, every once and a while I’ll pick up a crossword. I usually only end up with a quarter to a third of the answers. This one was no exception. Finally after a year of waiting, I pulled this puzzle out and started to sort the pieces.

I must admit, I attempted to solve the crossword, but in the end I let my jigsaw skills take over. It was quite a challenge, working on it over three whole days! I was so relieved to find it complete and in excellent shape. Below is a close up of the completed dilemma.
