On Wednesday 9th August a 10 day auction starts for one of my Rhombic Dodecahedrons. For the first time I have used 12 different colours on this puzzle instead of doubling up on opposite sides.

YEA!!!!!!!! 12 COLORS. So will you be selling any more of the Rhombic Dodecahedrons this year at all? Will you accept delayed payments or installments on this wonderful puzzle of yours?

Wednesday is the 9th. Not the 8th. Typo?

I won't auction any more for at least 6 months. Beyond that I simply don't know yet. It is probable the next would be 6 colour though again I am undecided. Not everyone qualifies for installments or delayed payment but you certainly do Darren.

Indeed it's a fantastic item.
I had the luck to win the last Rhombic Dodecahedron auction (a 6 coloured version). One of Tony's creations I like most.
As known from his puzzles it rotates perfectly without problems, the Skewb clicks tell you, when everything is correctly in place.

Good luck bidding..

Frank

Just saw the video on ebay... what mechanism is that you are using? Seems like a four armed spider - perhaps a Pyraminx?

The only other person that I'd like to beat me on this is Mr Twisty because your both on the form here and have a deep pockets :oops: .

You can post certain video files in the same way you would post a picture, providing they aren't bigger than 2mb. Somewhere on the site it says 10mb but I believe this is incorrect. I used a WMV file as they are very small.
