Are this, all the 3d rotational puzzles ever?

mass-produced, no extended puzzles, no sticker variations (f example: dogic I, dogic II...), no slide puzzles, no custom.,no heads.

Does Rubik's Clock, Magic, Master Magic or Dice make the criteria?

Nice idea to try and list all the mass produced puzzles!

Do you consider Flip Side by Thinkfun a sliding puzzle or a rotational puzzle?

What about pattern matching rotational puzzles such as Einstein Cube / Twelve Turns, Bolygok, Buvoy Golyok, Enigma, Rubik's Rabbits, Cmetrick?

Then there's the Magic Disc. (http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9845&p=106329&hilit=+Magic+Disc+#p106329)

No folding puzzles?

The Logic Star is an extended Globall.

Juanan- I am not quite sure (roxanne can probably clear things up), but I believe there was a mass produced KO 6x6. I am not sure if it has been distributed, though.

Same, I've been looking hard for puzzles that would go but I think he got them all. Jaaps puzzle page should really do it though. But that is all puzzles, this is just Twisty.

The Sphere XYZ and the Quark puzzle aren't on there.

I don't think such a list will ever be "complete."

I consider the Sphere XYZ a sliding puzzle, but that's me.

If the Brainball's on there(also not a twisty puzzle, by my standard) you should put the SphereXYZ.

Quarks without a doubt.
Maybe the Mohzi column cubes that have been popping up on ebay?



What's that Olidjus puzzle?

I think

octo is a sliding puzzle, isn´t it? turbo mind too, and of course XYZ. (as mozaika, etc)

the clasification would be (without sliding tiles)

as i said before is hard to say where is the limit.

I will add the siameses cubes. Image

Hi Juan!

Just some more suggestions for your twisty puzzles list which require TWO hands ;)


Mozaika (it is twisty+sliding so I guess it qualifies),
Im puzzle ball (3x3x3 but with labyrinth)
Turn 12 (and all variations), Tantrix Rock, Mobius Line (all those depend on how "strict" is your twisty definition).
The Disk Puzzle.
And finally... my interesting horoscope puzzle.

8-)

Other suggestions:

Remove the Truncated Cube: This is just a 3x3x3 with the corners cut off. This neither complicates nor simplifies the cube. To me, this is no different than gluing an extra set of cubies on the side of a 3x3x3 and calling it a 3x3x4 Extended cube.

Rename Crazy Cube as Crazy 4x4-I: We already know of three other designs of this puzzle in the works (Crazy 4x4-II, Crazy 4x4-III, Crazy 4x4-IV), and it looks as though the Crazy 4x4-II may be released in the relatively near future. This puzzle is already listed as Crazy 4x4-I on the Mf8 website as well for sale. I would stay consistent with its naming.

Also, if you're going to include the 5R Ball/Logic Star/Flower puzzles, which are all based on the Globall, then do you want to consider the Mefferts 3D Skewb-cube/Polymorphinx puzzles?

That's a spherical skewb I think. You can't include every shape and sticker variations of the same puzzle otherwise it'd go on forever, seriously. There's like infinity puzzles. :wink:
