I would like to know if some of you would be interested in buying
brand new Rainbow Puzzle Pucks ? (available in january)

I wont be selling them via eBay, instead I thought I would offer them to the Twisty community
for as little as 7.50$ US + shipping. Paypal would be the only payment method.

Thanks
Michael

Do you have a picture of the actual puck? I might be interested but I would like to see a picture first.

Thanks.

Something I've always wondered... how similar is the puck to the Rubik's cheese?

I was just curious if you are planning on getting these from the site that I refered to in a previous posting given below:

[url=message5765.htm]http://www.network54.com/Hide/Forum/message?forumid=43402&messageid=1007597160[/url]

They are sold for $10 each plus shipping there. Are you getting a discount for purchasing in volume?

Doug.

Here's the main differences, or so I think because I don't have a Cheese or the new UFO puzzle yet, but I do have a Hockey Puck puzzle.

1. The Puck puzzle is only 1 tier high, whereas the Cheese which is 2 tiers high.

2. Also, the center portion of the Puck puzzle has to be spun to allow a twist of the puzzle at a different slice because the center of the Puck is only split into 2 halves. This is not necessary on the Cheese which can be twisted at any of the 3 slices.

3. The Puck puzzle has 1 layer of 12 radial sections which can be twisted at 6 slices, whereas the Cheese has 2 layers of 6 sections each which can be twisted at 3 slices.

By the way, has anyone heard any news about the Cheese/UFO puzzle that is supposed to be released soon?
(Of course, Wayne, I know that you already have a prototype of the UFO.)

Doug.

Hi Doug,

To be honest with you and everyone else, I will order some hockey puzzle pucks
(how many, i don't know, maybe 15 or 20, depending on the demand, they only sell to companies.)

No I am not getting them from the same company.
And as for a discount because of a high volume...no since i will purchase about 20 pucks.
I asked, but you have to buy like a 1000 pucks for the price to change a couple of cents.

Remember I am in this for FUN, not the money.

My mark up is very marginal. (as long as I end up having my couple of pucks for free)

They were supposed to be out late October. Does that mean I'm the only one with a Cheese/UFO?

Apparently so, unless someone else out there has found these for sale somewhere out there.
