'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Puzzles are often a gentle, cerebral endeavor that you can work through alone or in a group. But MSCHF has imagined a new puzzle that gives you that same challenge with a new layer: The 2 Million Dollar Puzzle offers the chance to win up to $1 million when you finish and scan your puzzle. During this Memorial Day Sale, you can get one ($30), two ($56), three ($80), or four ($100) 2 Million Dollar Puzzles.
Each prize puzzle comes together to form a QR code. Complete the puzzle, scan the code, and see how much you won. Every puzzle wins a prize, and you can win anywhere from $1 to $1,000,000, but there are only two $1 million prize puzzles out. Puzzles are each 500 pieces and are a chance to get together with the family and enjoy a puzzle that has a guaranteed payoff.
Even without the motivation of a prize, this puzzle is an excellent fit for board game and puzzle enthusiasts. There's no picture on the cover, so you have to go in without reference. The gradient of colors and patterns makes assembly a manageable challenge, especially in a group.
Not everyone will win big, but the chance and the anticipation can be enjoyable for friends, families, and individuals to experience. For example, one reviewer who bought MSCHF's previous prize puzzle wrote, "Bought this for Christmas, when all of my adult children would be home. They loved putting it together and it kept them busy for over 3 hrs. Won .25 cents, but the real value is family working on it together."
Every completed puzzle gives you one more prize to win, and there's a chance you'll win one of the two $1 million payouts. Whether you win $1 or $1,000,000, payments will be distributed within 1-4 days via a digital check sent to your email.
Get together and do a puzzle that could pay for itself. Get one ($30), two ($56), three ($80), or four ($100) 2 Million Dollar Puzzles on sale for a limited time during our Memorial Day Sale, which ends May 31.
