I have a couple of rare puzzles in their unopened packaging. This is nice because they have never been opened, but with most puzzles comes a description sheet or booklet with some kind of information about the puzzle. They are impossible to see or read with unopened puzzles.

So I made this topic for pictures of old or rare puzzle descriptions. If you have an rare puzzle with the package, but opened, chances are there's also a description present. So please share!

Here are some for a 1980 ITC Rubik's Cube, a 1982 Rubik's Revenge, and I also threw in one for a 2005 Winning Moves Rubik's Cube for comparison:

I am very interested in seeing the description for
- the old pyraminxes,
- the 1981 Arxon Rubik's Master cube/Revenge,
- the old (black) Rubik's Earth,
- the Alexander's Star,
- early (ITC?) Rubik's Pocket Cubes,
- Domino's in cilinder containers,
- Rubik's Calender Cubes in cilinder containers,
- old Rubik's Professor Cubes,
- the Tomy Megaminx,
- the original Dino cubes
- and any other puzzle you consider old or rare.

Try to make readable scans or pictures, so everyone can clearly read what is says.

Been looking for an opportunity to show this off. You can check alexander star off the list. I wonder how much more valuable it makes mine.

my camera wasnt good enough so i went to the scanner, and pieced all the images together of the front and back of the star booklet.

I would take up that ideal rubik's club offer but it expired 8 years before i was born. :lol:
