Arrrrrgh!!! I'm done with Puzzle Swap. (blog/rant)

Just got my first Streetpass in ages and I STILL can't get any of those stupid pink pieces. Nintendo really wasted their time with that lame idea. I'd almost pay money at this point just so I don't have to keep staring at incomplete puzzles that are pretty much impossible to finish at this point. OCD is a b****.

If they're impossible why do I have all of them done?

Go to any anime/gaming convention. You'll have all the puzzles within a day.

I did say "pretty much impossible". As in damn near, but not quite. And do you live in the city? That's probably why. Us country folk have it pretty rough.

Theme parks work for this as well, as do college campuses to a lesser extent.

I was missing about 50 pieces until I went to SXSW in Austin a few weeks ago.

Now I need 4 pieces.

ProTip:
When you make a purchase at GameStop complete the customer feedback survey and in the comments section, ask them to bring their 3DS to work. I always get a Street Pass at my local GameStop now.

^^^Btw, the only crowded places to go where I live is Gamestop, BestBuy, Wal-Mart, and the local mall. Other than that there isn't a whole lot in my area. And any kind of convention is out of the question too. It's pretty much a lost cause for me.
