How to Play Jigsaw Squares
The goal is to fit the puzzle pieces into their proper position in the square to reveal a quotation. The 4x4 blocks of the square are identified by a letter-number combination (A1, A2, A3, etc.). The quotation will read left to right, line by line. A black square indicates the end of a word - words do not necessarily end at the end of a line. Punctuation such as periods and commas is already supplied.
In the puzzle below, the upper left quadrant A1 contains only one cell in which a single letter can be placed, so the letter 'F' must be placed there. 'F' will be followed by 'AIL' in quadrant A2.
