There are a lot of ways to take your mind off the stress of the holidays. Doing a relaxing puzzle? Sure. Winning a million dollars? Definitely. So how about doing them both at once?
That’s exactly what could happen with the 2 Million Dollar Puzzle, a truly unique idea from the indie marketing / art collective known as MSCHF. If you’ve got friends or family that love puzzling (or just boatloads of money), it’s a no-brainer for a gift idea.
And the timing couldn’t be better for it, since it’s on deep discount for the next 48 hours as part of a Deals page roundup of doorbuster Black Friday savings. Good luck finding these bargains anywhere else on the web, and once the weekend is over, so are they.
So what’s the catch with this curious puzzle? Really, there isn’t one. You get together with some friends and put the pieces together.
Expect a challenge, because the image (spoiler alert) is a massive QR code. But here’s the incentive: Once your puzzle is complete, you scan your code and find out your winnings.
It might be a dollar, it might be a thousand or it might be as much as one million bucks. (There are two puzzles floating around with that $1 mil prize, hence the name.)
Everybody wins something, and even completing the thing is worthy of bragging rights.
The concept definitely beats just staring at your Powerball ticket waiting for numbers to come in. Winners have to be at least 18 years of age to claim their prize, but otherwise, anyone can play!
If you’re going to join in the fun, act fast. The 2 Million Dollar Puzzle is now selling for $19.99, a discount of 33% off the original MSRP. There’s no coupon needed but the deal is only good through this Black Friday weekend.
Prices subject to change.
