Just bought this - I've seen this domino box in blue, but don't recall seeing it in black before.

Any ideas?

I'd like to join. I have one for a longer time now, but couldn't find out any details.

As there are some visible differences on the packaging, the twistypuzzlers knowing Hungarian or having access to translating offices (hi Luc, hint, hint) could translate or give a clue to what means "grafika sz. wanda" and/or "Design ... Wanda".
I first thought the black one was a promotional domino, but as "Wanda" appears on both, I don't think so any longer.

I'm glad its not just me :)

Georges, your pictures aren't loading for me. I haven't got my puzzle yet, otherwise I would take pictures too.

EDIT: Pictures now working fine.

Got a reply from the seller:

Hello,

The producer and the distributor are the same; Politechnika and Triál. The graphic designer as well. So, probably editions of different seasons.

I asked an Hungarian and she told me that in "sz. wanda" the "sz." is probably the abbreviation of the last name and "wanda" the first name of the designer. Remark: Hungarian (like the Japanese) use the surname followed by the first name. She found a graphic designer called SZYKSZNIAN Wanda. Born in April, 1948. (SZYKSZNIAN is probably what is written on the blue box).
see her website: http://artportal.hu/lexikon/muveszek/szyksznian_wanda

Thank you nicky_uk and Luc.
Luc's acquaintance seems to be right with the name. Here is a higher resolution picture:

Here is a picture from the auction:

If it arrives I can translate all informations for you!

And if someone have a puzzle with Hungarian words on it, I can do the translation for that one as well.

From the picture Georges uploded, I can only see this:
10 év felett - Ages from 10 years.
Bűvös Dominó - Magic Domino
