I am intrigued by this black-yellow "snake-a-like" maze.

If anyone has a Rubik's maze ( http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pid=672 ),
I would be interested in buying or swapping. Please let me know! :)
(send a PM or email me!)


Peter

Thanks for the thumbs up Ryan... but I was hoping I could avoid the ebay adrenaline highs and lows...! :oops:

Oh well... :P

And nicky is right. I promise I will post the link to the marketplace forum when the auction's ended. :)

*edit* Well I posted a reply before looking at your Twisty Puzzle database link, thinking it was a 3x3 maze cube you were thinking of... doh!!

Original post below:

Check out CubeSmith's Maze Cube sticker set... $3 if memory serves. I'm not sure if it is the same pattern as you might typically find on eBay, but it is available in yellow/black and black/white.

Yes, it is the same pattern. Cubesmith's stickers are cool and I will definitely get some in the future! I even plan to request some "calcube" variation as well! :P

In fact, any sticker configuration regrding the 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 cubes is cool, and it is much cheaper (and new!) when using our own stickers. :wink:

i personally start to see the possibility of CubeSudoku's cubes....Those I that is challenging variation compared to the sudokukube which is just weird and does not really follow rules sudoku.

Thinking about getting a sheperd's and a calendar cube sets soon too!

Very true. They just use some simple-ordered number cubes and they market them as sudocubes.
It is still an interesting variation, but by no means new.
(compared to a normal Rubiks, the edges and corners are easier to place, but the centers need to be oriented).

As for the ones with the stickers that you mentioned, they are indeed a good challenge! :)

nitro13,

While you're not actually posting the link, you're still violating the spirit of the rule.

Congrats, dude! That price despite "Rubik" in the title and a gallery picture...

Viel Dank Stefan, I guess this is one of the last authentic pieces I needed for my collection.
I agree, the price was surprisingly very low, I had actually placed a maximum bid of eight times more than that!!! :oops:
(you should have seen the smile on my face after that particular auction LOL)

Now, I really want to compare its mechanism with my broken Inca and make another "spotlight" page.
It was in fact the Inca that made me so infactuated with that type of puzzles.

There were two such auctions within an hour, both with low prices, and from zero Rubik's Maze pieces, suddenly I ended up with two pieces!!! :D

Of course, one of the mazes will go to the university puzzle club collection
for many people to view and try out! :)


Peter


PS I had to stay up till 5am, but it was well worth it!!!

Jeje, yes, it was very low, I was to bid about 38$ but I didn't do it because somebody told me that you was going to bid 70$, so I think that you'll get it cheaper if I didn't bid.

8 times more??? 250$$$$$??????? You are mad, jejeje

That is correct. I had a maximum bid for the first one of around $240.
But the for the second one my maximum bid was $70.

And yes, you are also correct that I am mad! :P

I couldn't believe there were no mazes for so long time, and suddenly there were two so close to each other!
In fact, the last time (two months ago), I was second and outbid. So I was really going for it this time... :oops:

I checked out your website, it is very nice!!! Plus, you got some interesting siamese cubes! :wink:

Hi

Well, I have to actualize my collection gallery with more photos (about 15-20). I did the siameses a year ago (I have made only these two mods).
