Mario's Festive Jigsaw Jumble is a game on the Nintendo Kids Club website.


The player has to complete a holiday-themed jigsaw puzzle featuring Mario. When a new game is started, the player must select a difficulty level, which determines the number of pieces in the puzzle: Easy for nine pieces and Medium for sixteen pieces. The board and pieces are then shown on the screen and a timer starts. The player has to drag each piece and place it into the right field on the board; when this is done, the piece will snap into that field. To bring a piece from behind another one, the player has to click or tap on it. Once the puzzle is complete, a window appears showing a rating out of three stars based on how much time it took the player to complete the puzzle. The player can then choose to play a new game or close the window to return to the title screen.

The game cycles through three different pictures every time a puzzle is completed and a new game is started.

The game can be paused at any point by clicking on the PAUSE button at the bottom. On the pause screen, the player can choose to start a new game (upon which they will have to pick a difficulty level again) or resume the current game.
