The World Puzzle Days 2021 are running since 15 days and we have a never experienced activity this year. Probably the WPD 2021 will end in the history of WPD as the "Lockdown Puzzle Games" 😁 with never more reached records, perhaps our this year's numbers are the future of WPD... Time will tell. We have from this year on "Daily Statistics". This is the reason why we do no longer have detailed "Weekly Stats". But as some players use the website only to find their Personal Album, I decided to make 4 additional Stats and Rankings after 25%, 50%, 75% and then Final Results for you. 😊 For the WPD 2021 registered 341 players from 42 countries. In the first 15 days started playing 254 of us. The number of players is growing every year, and we have already 100 registrations for the WPD 2022(!). Most players come from Russia. Below you can see the 10 countries with most players in the WPD 2021. The table is sorted by Active Players. To see all countries please click on the photo. We play in 42 countries and 221 cities... In the first 15 days we have seen 1587 amazing jigsaw puzzles, assembled by our 254 active players since December 31, 2020. These have been incredible 1,716,728 assembled puzzle pieces in 15 days! ...from 185 different manufacturers. 66 brands have never been seen before in the WPD. Every 0.7 seconds one of us finds 1 piece. Playing with jigsaw puzzles is still to ~85% a passion for women and ~15% for men. With this percentage women have even 2-3% more than we used to see during the past eight years. But... who plays more pieces? A woman or a man? 😊 To detect this we have our Battle of Sexes. All pieces of all women will be divided by the numbers of playing women, and the same for men. Every 12 days there will be given 1 point. During the next 12 days the current point can jump between men and women. This morning we had 1:1. But after adding the puzzles from last night we are at... Yes... 2:0 🤨 The calculator for the current 12 days says 1941 pieces assembled from each woman and 1796 from each man. You can follow these numbers and every other stats on the subpage "Statistics" of the menu "World Puzzle Days". It changes with every daily update. What are our preferred sizes? Of course, first of all we are loving puzzles of 1000 pieces. We have seen until now only 3 puzzles of 4000 pieces and 6 of 3000... From every active player we have seen 6758 pieces in the first quarter! Here you can see also our incredible increase of activity. 4 x 6758 would be 27,000 pieces per player. Last year we had 15,291! And what are our most popular brands in the WPD 2021? As each one of us may choose his personally prefered brand or puzzle motive, it is always interesting, which brands are the most played... To see the entire Top 40 please click on the photo. All brands you can see at Rankings. You may give every year a Personal Goal of pieces you'd like to assemble in the 60 days of WPD. After 15 days 8 of us have already achieved their personal goal! Congratulations to each one! To all other players I can say, "I give you still time to achieve your goal, too"... That's it for this time. Next stats after 30 days in Half-Time Stats. Thanks for reading.
