Here are the new puzzles I took to the Dutch Cube Day. Because the custom made puzzle market has changed considerably in the last few years my focus was mostly on cheap simple variations or ones I had already sold prior to the event.Locked BlocksVIDEO
This puzzle is similar to my Slide Twist Twist Slide and Twisted Assembly puzzles. Like those it combines characteristics of an assembly puzzle with those of a twisty puzzle.
Some people complained that the other two were too hard so this is simpler and smaller but still far from easy. It has a 2x4x4 arrangement of pseudo blocks instead of the 3x4x4 on the others.
The puzzle consists of three separate parts that have to fit together. One of those parts is a locking piece. This is a single cubic piece that has to be removed before the puzzle can be further disassembled or twisted. The other two parts are extended 2x2x2 Rubik's Cubes. These parts can then be mixed up in the usual way. Some however intrude into the paths of others which causes blocking and prevent some moves some of the time.
Similar to my Slide Twist Twist Slide you can't just solve the parts and assemble them since a further twisting move is required during assembly. This is best shown in the video.
In choosing the name I combined the locking, blocking and the blocks it is made from.Siamese Pillowed HexaminxesVIDEO

A drastically cut down Helicopter Dodecahedron. Jumbling is still possible.StarpadVIDEO
Similar to my Helipad but uses a corner turning Starminx as the basis. Pretty easy to solve.6 inch 2x2x2VIDEO
I was asked to make one of these for someone a while ago. Some puzzles like this are uneconomical to make just one of. For that reason I made a second one for Cube Day.
Further details of these and photos are now on my website- http://tonyfisherpuzzles.net
At this time I am unsure which of these I will make available outside Cube Day and how. I am still in Holland and will decide in a few days. I can however say that my special Cube Day prices will not be valid after the event.
