I finally took some group shots. What a lot of work taking everything out, arranging it, and putting it all away again in time to reclaim the table for Thanksgiving! And I am sure I've missed some (like the recently arrived Jing's Pyraminx). I keep a lot of the more interesting twisties on my desk, but many are packed away, so it was good to dig them out again.

There were too many to fit in one frame with any kind of clarity, so I grouped the tetrahedrons, cubes, octahedrons, dodecahedrons, icosahedrons, spheres, ufos, heads, folding, and 3D sliding puzzles separately.

Putting these out on shelves or in cabinets will have to await finishing off another room. One my wife won't visit often :roll:

Oh yes. The ongoing puzzle: How to categorize your own collection... I haven't solved it either.
Why do you need a Jings Pyraminx? You have a HMT. :P

Glad to see some of mine made it in. I am a very proud puzzle builder when I see my customs in a collection the size of yours. :wink: Thankyou very much. (your collection makes mine look like a noobs)

Hi Tanner - I made sure that your logo was visible. :D

(I've mixed & solved the Truncated Trajber's, but the Nightmare Cube remains mixed up, living up to its name, for me anyway.)

If you would like, I can tell you which piece has no edges attached to it. Thanks for showing the logos.

Hi, I'm glad to see forum member is now the owner of my lolo's octahedron. :D This is my first custom puzzle to appear in a big collection. Thanks again.
