TLDR: If you think you’ve got what it takes, the 1 Million Dollar Puzzle could earn you…yep, $1 million.

You think you’re pretty smart. It’s ok. Just go ahead and admit it out loud. You think you’re at least a step or two ahead of just about everybody else around you. It’s alright. It’s cool. We’re not going to rat you out for your exaggerated sense of superiority. In fact, we’re going to play right into your elevated self-assurance.

Think you could finish a jigsaw puzzle worth $1 million? 

That got your attention, didn’t it?

That’s the premise behind The 1 Million Dollar Puzzle by MSCHF. And yes, someone who puts together this 500-piece puzzle is really going to walk away with $1 million for their efforts.

But we’re going to warn you now…this puzzle isn’t just going to be a slam dunk. While a picture of the puzzle isn’t featured on the box, we’ll give you a headstart on that: it’s actually a QR code against a multi-colored background. While the puzzle itself only rates a 5 difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, the odd black edges and non-descript rainbow underneath mean putting this whole thing together isn’t quite as simple as you might believe. 

Of course, you’re pretty smart. That means you’ll likely be able to crack this particular headscratcher and, with enough time, snap all those recycled cardboard, individually unique pieces into place. Once you’ve finished your glorious project, then it’s time to scoop up your generous reward.

Just aim your smartphone or tablet camera at the picture, and the code will unlock a special website where you can score your winnings. But as a smart guy or girl, we’ve got to warn you — the odds could be against you landing the $1 million grand prize.

The consolation is that every single person who finishes the puzzle will win something. Granted, it might only be a bright shiny new quarter, but hey, that’s a quarter more than you had when you started, right?

The money is great and all, but the fun of The 1 Million Dollar Puzzle by MSCHF is what you’re really after anyway. Isn’t it? Yeah? Do the puzzle and find out, a $64 value now on sale for over 50 percent off at just $30. Go make your money, big brain.
