So basically I'm wondering how much these puzzles are worth. I would like to sell them but have no idea what is a fair price. So if anyone could give me some information on the rarity and value of these puzzles I would appreciate it.

I don't even know what the puzzle labeled "Rubik's Game" does other than function as a 3x3x3

Thanks a lot guys!

EDIT: Sorry for the photo at the wrong angle :oops:

The Rubik's Game is a variation on tic-tac-toe. Playing against another player, you take turns placing pegs and turning the cube. First one to line up three pegs wins. I'm not sure of the precise rules but it is something amongst those lines.

Hello ENcuber,

About the rules for Rubik's Game, Sandy scanned them (in English and in French) several years ago. The PDFs can be downloaded from the Rubik's Game Museum page. Also, a little bit more info can be found in that particular game's article at Board Game Geek.

The Entrapment is a nice puzzle that shows up on ebay every once in a while. I've seen them go for as little as $5 and as much as $20.

The entex puzzle isn't worth so much unless you can find an unwary buyer or really put in a 'premium' description. (I have picked up many of these over the years on the streets here for around $0.50 each-but this is puzzle heaven! :lol: ) They often show up on ebay as "unknown star puzzle/game" And with these, the are usually sold for less than the shipping.

For both puzzles a collector or a very good description are the way to go.

Rubik's game has the pegs, so that increases the value, but having the instructions and box would make it go up more. I have one like yours, and I paid around $40 for it a couple of years ago. Puzzles seem to be worth a little less now though than a few years ago, in general.

I once paid $150 for a skewb diamond... then Meffert's made another run of them! Bought one of those too though! ;)

Also, the snake appears to be an original, possibly from Hungary? - That color scheme was not popular in the USA, so it might go for a little more, but still not too much in general. I could be completely wrong about that though!

I am planning on trying to sell them here on twistypuzzles before I list them so should I just ask for offers?
By the way, these are not the only ones I'll be selling.
