How do i decide how many pieces in a puzzle to buy?

As a rule of thumb it takes four times as long to complete a 500 piece puzzle as it does a 250 piece puzzle. The same applies to a 500 piece puzzle compared to a 1000 piece puzzle. The latter takes four times as long. Black and White puzzles will take longer to complete compared to a coloured puzzle.
