It is a long time I have presented a new puzzle.
It is time to reveal a (distorted) photo from my new unfinished puzzle. (80% ready)

It is mostly (90%) hand made, and I'm working on it since 2 or 3 month. At the start Greg helped me out with some design help. So I hope it will have the same quality as Greg's puzzles.

It will be first show for public at the European Rubik's cube Championship at Wroclaw on the "Puzzle design competition"

Now who can guess what it is?
(Greg, please do not answer!)

Now a photo from the finished puzzle.

Who can guess why is it here?

I don't even understand what a mixup minx would be. Care to elaborate your vision? So here goes: you're crazy :P

More in November.....

Since the Shapeways website is currently down due to 'Sandy', I'll have to wait for uploading and receiving my models (I should have been quicker with my modelling....). More by end of November I guess...

It's been a while since my last puzzle, but here's my next one. Hint: You might think it's like a Compy+Helicopter, but you'd be wrong.

Is it a 2x2xN puzzle with its surface made so it can contain a rolling ball in it, and where the surface would be ever changing as you roll the ball around?

About a week from now, I'll be presenting 3 puzzles. The first 2 are unfortunately paperweights :( . But I'm really excited to present the third one!

Here's a hint picture for it:

Hi Eitan, I would have to guess that would be a face-turning Starminx + Dinominx? Or something along those lines. If so, I have wanted to see this puzzle come into existence for some time now! :D

Sorry for the bump, but I just wanted to give a hint of a new puzzle I'm attempting to make which is very special. It should come out this summer. I'm pretty confident in the mechanism and I've designed it to be as stable as possible. Here's a hint: it's the first of its kind!

Interesting. I think it might be either a Square-1 variation or an oddly proportioned cuboid mod. Looking forward to seeing it!

A slightly different way of doing things... Please keep your guesses to yourselves! EDIT: Feel free to guess. I'm curious what people think.

Oh yea, I probably should make it more clear. I'm referring to rubikcollector123's puzzle :D
As for yours, I'm going to take a guess and say that it's a 3x3 Rubik's cube mod with gears.

An update on the progress of my puzzle. Due to the fact that I am 15 and all my funding is from my dad, we made an agreement that I do well in my examination and he orders the print. So, soonest the forum can see the print is next month. Also, I'll be keeping of the forum for the time being until after the examination. So, see you guys till then!

The first version of my puzzle is ready and it works! However I need to redesign some things a little to improve it.
So I wanted to give another hint instead.

I hope this is the right place to post this and also apologies if this has been posted before as I seem to recall a conversation about flowers and puzzles but I couldn't find anything relevant with a search.

Hint for a new VeryPuzzle puzzle in June

Any ideas? I'm hoping for a Pentagonal Prism (please make one Lee!!) or a pyracosaminx but don't see how the hint relates! (unless the 5 petals....)

I hope it's a self-solving Rubik's Cube. I suspect that's your hope too 8-)

You're right. There's a shield-like piece in nearly every shell-mech puzzle. (except for most Archimedean axis geometries).

This is also one of the parts of the puzzle that worries me regarding how well it will move...

I hope that's what I think it is.

I hope it's a self-solving Rubik's Cube. I suspect that's your hope too 8-)


I have always wanted a cube that could not only solve itself - but you could program it to set up certain situations so you could practice moves. Imagine a cube that would cycle through all the various F2L scenarios or last layer for practice. Now that would be handy!

That looks like a rhombic triacontahedron/dodecahedron.

Correct! I'll save the details till I'm ready to post in the puzzle building thread - but its' basically a deep cut face turning rhomibc docecahedron.
