    Hi!

    Is it correct to say "play a puzzle"? Or is it safer to go with "do a puzzle"?

    (Talking about the game where you put little pieces of cardboard or wood together... the jigsaw kind of thing!)

    Thank you!

    Hi.
    We'd say do a puzzle. I can't think of a time when it would sound natural to 'play' a puzzle.

    You play games, you do puzzles.
