A Zauberkreuz for $187.50. I topped out at $160. Next time perhaps...

A Puzzler-Avenger in a set of puzzles for $26.25. I have one already so I only bid $25, but it isn't very common so perhaps I should have bid more.

That was me. :) I'll gladly trade you for a "Puzzler Challenger", since that's really what I'm missing.

I think I've been sabotaging myself. I know that my family is poor and I don't want to waste my dad's money on these things, but come on! Stupid subconscious.

It's always these same three puzzles that I can never get.

By the way, was anyone else watching the boxed calendar cube? I must have deleted the link, but it was in the UK packaging. The cardboard tubs were the UK packaging, right?

Yay! It's been a big collecting week for me. I've been waiting for a dino cube to pop up for what feels like a long time! Now, time to recommit myself to my C.A. 12 step program.

Isn't the need for sleep a beast? If you want, I can always post a link on the forum if another is spotted :mrgreen:

I don't think I had ever seen one of these before, when i did there was no way I was passing it up. The good news is, i won't compete against anyone for the next one. I only need one.

Would this be considered a good price?

It's a good price as long as it is good for you. I've bought many a puzzle that would be considered high by someone else, but becaue I wanted it bad enough, the price was right for me.

Why buy a v cube for 55 dollars?, when you can also buy it for one hundred and twenty dollars from ebay!
[auction violation]

Though tecnically this post does not belong here (it is not sold yet), I still thought some would find it interesting.

Perhaps asking over 2 times the original price, when the item is still available in the store, would seem funny, foolish, or down right stupid? to a person?
It is at least questionable, remarkable or worrying that someone is trying to sell this item for such a price, I would say.
Interesting to sum it up.

Frankly, I doubt you can reliably tell that these are different types. I believe it might be simply a matter of "quality control", whatever you call it, in a sense that the puzzle could have been assembled this or that way. I have one where the white is white, and one where the white is yellowed, and they are assembled a little differently, but obviously can be assembled in a certain single way.

An auction for a lot of puzzles including (what looks to be) a hexagon rhombic dodecahedron for a final price of 30.99 GBP ($43.44).

It looks to be a factory made one. I say that because it looks like the one in the database. I think it even has the same color scheme as the one pictured in the database, too.

Are these not as hard to come by as I thought?

I have only seen four factory made hexagon rhombic dodecahedrons on ebay during the last six months, while there have been at least ten Rubik's cheeses. :wink: All of them were "hidden" in puzzle lots that sold for 18 GBP - 45 GBP.

This domino has confused me since I first saw it a week ago. Why are the dots on the yellow pieces white instead of black? There are some black traces around some of the white dots which could indicate that the dots have originally been black, but that could also just be dirt... And does it really have indented pips (it is a bit hard to tell from the pictures)?

First it was a normal auction with a start-price 1,00 EUR, but sometime the seller had changed it to a "Buy it now" price.
Than I had no chance to get it.. :?

An auction for a lot of puzzles including (what looks to be) a hexagon rhombic dodecahedron for a final price of 30.99 GBP ($43.44).

It looks to be a factory made one. I say that because it looks like the one in the database. I think it even has the same color scheme as the one pictured in the database, too.

Are these not as hard to come by as I thought?


I have only seen four factory made hexagon rhombic dodecahedrons on ebay during the last six months, while there have been at least ten Rubik's cheeses. :wink: All of them were "hidden" in puzzle lots that sold for 18 GBP - 45 GBP.

This is a strange domino. I believe it's a THIRD type of russian domino (did you get this one Thomas?) since the black seven is pointing in but the white seven is pointing out.


This domino has confused me since I first saw it a week ago. Why are the dots on the yellow pieces white instead of black? There are some black traces around some of the white dots which could indicate that the dots have originally been black, but that could also just be dirt... And does it really have indented pips (it is a bit hard to tell from the pictures)?

I saw that yellow domino, but wasn't sure if it was real so didn't even bother to bid on it.

I had a great buy a couple of weeks ago: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0330882243

It's a Dutch version of Rubik's Master Cube, sealed in it's original container, sold an signed by Peter Sébesteny, the inventor, by Arxon/ITC(it says arxon on the sticker on the top and ideal toy corp on the plastic base. Can anyone explain this?)
All that for just 24 euros! (shipping not included)
He had 3 available (when Sven first sent me the link).
I now have this one, the american version, rubik's revenge, in it's original package, and the newest version.

Pretty cool to have one signed by Peter. :)

Some Ideal cubes that were made in Germany have that Arxon label. They're not too rare.

As far as I know, there were no cubes *made* in Germany.
They were at that time made where ITC had the factories.
Arxon was the distributor for some countries in Europe, amongst them The Netherlands and Germany.
Just like Mako was the distributor for Spain, Mondadori for Italy, Idéal Loisirs for France, a.s.o.

It is a must for any serious collector to have at least one 4x4x4 signed by Peter.

It says "For Georges Helm, from the inventor..."
