There is a big difference between a toy, a game, and a puzzle. Puzzles have only one solution; games have rules, but the outcome is not predetermined; toys are limited only by your imagination. Therefore, life cannot be a puzzle as the outcomes are limitless. When you follow all the rules, then your life is only a game. When you treat your life like a toy, you are limited only in so far as you give credence to other's opinions. Amirite.
