I don't ever recall Rubik's making cubes like that, it looks to me like they're knock-offs :?

Yeah, they're not Rubik's brand cubes.

Interesting. They have the Rubik's logo on them. Maybe someone got fancy with this kit.

Tamaness, that's probably what they did. You can tell that they're not Rubik's brand cubes as Rubik's cubes have the logo on a centre, not on an edge, but just because they're not Rubik's doesn't mean that they are bad quality cubes.

I have some 50 Rubik's promotional cubes, the logo is on a corner, a center or an edge.

Alright then, my mistake. I was just thinking of the ordinary cubes (I probably should have checked before I said anything :oops:). Rubik's never did make white cubes did they? If they didn't, then the cube in the first picture isn't a Rubik's brand.

Are you kidding? That's just his promotional cubes. Check this out. Georges has one of the largest collections in the world! :wink:

Georges, thank you for gracing us with your presents. :mrgreen:

I was assuming that with a collection of 50 promotional cubes that Georges would have a lot more puzzles - he nearly has as many as me :lol:. So how many does Georges have exactly, 51, 52? :lol:

Sorry, I made a mistake. I have slightly more than 100 3x3x3 promotional cubes, some 20 2x2x2's and 3 4x4x4's.
Some cubes - although they are genuine Rubik's cubes - don't even have the special logo, for example the Rubik's Studio promotional 3x3x3 cubes.

How many puzzles do you have altogether Georges (roughly), I estimate it to be in the region of 1 million :D.
