Hi,

I am in the process of clearing up old notes and relic images to see whether there is something missing in the museum.
*Isn't there anything else in puzzles for me these days?*
I stumbled across this puzzle and I am not sure whether it is a legitimate puzzle.
I already contacted Dave and he suggested to ask the audience.

Andreas

I believe that puzzle was being sold on the HKNowstore a while back.

Here's the link

What do you mean by "legit"? I have one if you need photos.

It is a Shengshou brand puzzle, crazy 2x2 ball. I have one, quite fun to play with!

Well, I assume he means legitimate as oppsoed to a KO. I'm not aware of any other brand producing this puzzle.

ShengShou made this and a version with flat discs in the place of the curved dome shapped extensions. I have the flat disc version:

They also made a version with cube style extensions on 2 sides which I also have:

I have the "Crazy 2x2x2 Circle Ball", the "Crazy 2x2x2" and the "Super 2x2x4" puzzles which match those already posted. What exactly are you asking for Andreas?

For some reason I recall the price on it being higher, so when I saw the current price I had some thoughts it may be a knock off. But it sounds like there is just one production so that should confirm this is the original.

If anyone has information otherwise please feel free to let me know.

Dave

My intention was indeed to know whether the version I showed is a KO or not.
Now I can help myself.

Thank you for your answers.
