If you like playing games on your phone (or iPad or computer), Planet 316 has a game you might be interested in getting. It is called Daily Bible Jigsaw and is a free app that works on iOS, Google Play, or as a Facebook game.
Just like other games you play through Facebook, you can challenge your friends on the game. Although, you don’t HAVE to connect it to Facebook. I like having mine connected to Facebook, because I like seeing how my friends did on the game.
What is Daily Jigsaw Puzzle?
This app is just as it sounds. You complete jigsaw puzzles on it.
Each puzzle is a pretty picture with a bible verse. Once you complete it, you can share it on your social media if it’s a message you would like others to see. You can also do the puzzle again if you want to try to complete it faster (and maybe beat your friend’s times).
I have had a lot of fun playing these puzzles every day. It’s a little different than a physical jigsaw puzzle in that it times you, so you can try to do it faster each time. It’s a game against yourself (or your Facebook friends, if you connect it to Facebook)!!
Is it really free???
Yes, it really is free, but like with other apps, there are features you can use that will cost money.
Let’s start with what IS free… Every day, a new puzzle is opened up for you to play. You can play the daily jigsaw puzzle each day for free.
There are also bonus puzzles that you can complete for free. They generally have more pieces, too, so they might be a bit more challenging.
How much do the extras cost?
Across the top of each puzzle are some “cheats” you can use to help you get done with the puzzle faster.
Okay, here’s a brief breakdown of the costs:
- Play a puzzle you’ve already played or a day that has already passed – 3 coins
- Take a peek at the completed puzzle – 2 coins
- Rotate all the pieces the correct way – 2 coins
- Move everything out of the way except for the edge pieces – 2 coins
- Sweep all single pieces to the edge and out of your way – 1 coin
- Pair up two random pieces – 1 coin
I personally use rotate and edges on almost every puzzle. It just takes a little work out of it for me. :)
(Disclaimer: I was given 500 coins so I could properly review the app and all of its features for you.)
Earning free coins
There are a few ways you can earn free coins:
- You can watch a video ad
- There are awards you can earn for coins (solve 5 puzzles, solve a puzzle in a certain time, solve so many puzzles for a certain day)
- During the puzzle, sometimes a puzzle piece will “glow”. If you pair it up with another piece quickly enough, you will earn a coin.
Here’s the main thing I like about this app: There is only one puzzle opened up for me each day. So, unless I use coins to do another puzzle, I know this app won’t suck up a bunch of my time.
I tend to spend too much time on an app and then I end up deleting it from my phone as a way to discipline myself. I love that I can keep this one and know it won’t use up a lot of my day. Plus, I get a little dose of the Bible every time I complete a puzzle!
