I need to start selling some of mine. I guess this seller thinks they hit the gold mine...

Also, the guy thinks it's from 1969...LMAO

It was ok I think. Not bad and not super, but ok. I thought it would generate more interest than the 2x3x3 though, but boy was I wrong :)

It's a take-apart-pattern-matchy type puzzle. Im not sure if its magnetic, or if the triangular pieces attach some other way.

I got 2 of them from the same seller a few months ago for even less. It is not a quality cube but a nice addition to my collection. It wouldn't even turn when I got it. Needed some extreme lubrication. :lol:

I got my first one in 1984 from Christoph Bandelow and the box shows its age. One month ago I bought one like Dodd from the same seller for less with a mint packaging.

Yeah, I have seen 2 or 3 in ebay. I decided not to buy them cause someone told me that are quite bad for play with them. And I like playing with my puzzles

I have never heard of an IQ140 puck before.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6063904987

The puckpuzzle guy was the one who won it. :lol:

Of course, I don't even know how the IQ139 puck got its name, but I have never seen a 140 before.

Thats looks the same as a 139, but with 140 written on it. And, correct if I'm wrong, but isn't the 139 a joke saying that it can only be solved by those of IQ139 or higher?

A game cube for anything over $60 or so is just daft. A Christoph's Magic Jewel for over $200 though is probably not unreasonable.
