Hi,

may be that this colour is more convenient to you - :mrgreen:

I will set up an auction on ebay the next days and hope for more than that incredible cheap price of the white one ( :twisted: hi Claus :!: )

SInce I know that there are not that much licenses of that great puzzle - feel free to contact me for a building / deal (strictly confidential 8-) ) - if you have a license but not a puzzle.

See the latest pictures - turning is as good as the white one:

Karl-Heinz,

you are right.

Your black one is looking much better than my white one.

But I am proud to got it for such a cheap price. BTW, it is a beautiful turning puzzle.

I got to disagree, the white one is much better looking =P

It's a shame (to you) the white one sold for such a small amount. Hopefully this goes better :D

Yeh I think 400$ isn't that cheap, now that a lot of people know the Reducted Shell mech (how to reduce the shells to max 5 on a puzzle) or the Shell Mech.

Also consider the license for the design is $328/2, so the cost is $164 before you even talk about the work to print masters (>$100) and cast hundreds of pieces. $400 is a steal :)

Yes, this is my opinion, too.

One year ago I won the 24 cube on ebay for 850 USD.

http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=14388&start=0

Now I am the luckiest man, because it went for 400 USD. In average I paid only 650 for each of the 24-puzzles.

Its a deepcut puzzle. An octahedron shaped 24-cube. (the.drizzle design). The mechanism baffles anybody! Look it up!

Thanks Dave - you explained very well why I think 400$ is cheap.

May be the next auction goes better. I´ll start it soon.
