Okay, so i just got this puzzle from a freind who bougth it for about 1 dollar
at a yardsale.
This puzzle seems to be very old, (like 10 or 20 years? hard to tell couse it has paint/colored plastic and not stickers
this is why when i first got it (a few hours ago
) it was way to stiff,
after i lubed it with silicone spray it now moves softly though,
I looked it up (searched google images for "Spherical sliding puzzle"
) and i think its called a Cut-off Equator
thats pretty much all the info i could find.
As for the size, i dont have the exact measurements but its roughly the same size as as ES 4x4.
Basically its just a round sliding puzzle, it has 30 moving peices.
Theres 6 "sides" with 5 peices that needs to be solved, 2 of them are numbers (1 to 5), 1 side has letters (A to E), another side has smiley faces on them,
and then theres a side with spheres on it and one with flowers (or something).Ok, im making this post to ask you all if you have any more info on this puzzle, when/where/why and by whom it was made and such
lol, the "why" was ment as a joke
, sry for bad quality
I took a quick picture with my cellphone. (hard to get good ligthing at 12:30 AM
