I see you updated after the DCD. I saw the old ones on your website, but still: :shock: woooow :shock:
do you dare to estimate the total cost of all the puzzles in just the first picture? :lol:

Honestly I don't know, but I guess 50,000 € at least.
($63,500, £40,000)

:cry: maybe I should get a job... or start a puzzle building carreer :P
and just something most people would say when they'll see this: OMG you can get two or three pretty good cars for that kind of money!!!, but I won't. I'm going to compliment you for having probably the greatest puzzle collection in the world!

Thank you Sjoerd.
I am convinced though (I know for sure for some like James Dalgety, Jerry Slocum, Marcel Gillen and others) that there are quite a few other people who have larger collections.
There is always the question of what you collect.
Always keep in mind that I started collecting 27 years ago and I didn't get all my puzzles like Klara within 6 months or so.

Yes, I won't say you can get cars for those money but I'm going to say, you can buy a house with those money. :D

By the way, Georges, I tried to PM you but can't find a way to PM you. Would you mind sending me a PM first so that I can use that to reply you?

Thanks.

I'm envious that you have the space to display/store them. I hate looking at your collection because I start drooling every time I do. While I was being a brat in the mid to late 80's when some of those puzzles were coming out, you were collecting. Then I see some that came out in the 90's and think maybe I should have spent my money in the puzzle shops rather than in the Schweinfurt biergarten. Live and learn.

Of all the puzzles I collected from 1981 to about 1990, I had most of the original packages as well.
But as I hadn't place to display them, I threw away the packagings (aaarrgh) and from 2004 to 2008 (thanks mostly to Ebay), I bought these puzzles again for much more money, only to have the packagings again.
This is one explanation why I offered regularly some decent puzzles for sale.
They were often the ones left without their packaging.
As you said, live and learn.

Is it possible, that you have a Magic Jewel without package left?
You know, that you are missing another octahedron, ... :D
The DinoCubes alone are impressive!

I grew up thinking that I was a sensible girl who would never spend money on anything "unneccessary" except books and music. I guess I just hadn't found my weak spot... But if you ever decide to adopt an extra daughter, Georges, please choose me :D (I know that Pantazis already asked if he could be your adoptive son).

But seriously, your collection is amazing! I can't stop myself from visiting your puzzle gallery at least twice a week, just to enjoy the sight of all your wonderful puzzles and dream sweet dreams about how a couple of them might come to live with me some day. :wink:

I guess we could both be adopted by George and then merge all three collections. :P

Georges, what is the procedure for this? Intercountry adoption in Luxembourg seems
easy enough as Georges satisfies all criteria LOL:

I think you and Klara might be a tad bit to old to meet the criteria.
One could argue that a grown man "Playing with toys" might be a mental condition as well

Yeap, it is one of those conditions that everyone would wish to have.
(too many serious people today who would hardly break a smile! hrrrmph!)

But you should really admit that you also want to be adopted by Georges.
Oh what a great family we would be!

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

PS On a serious note, I have some horrific stories regarding what I did with
puzzle packaging. And everytime I remember this, I want to (slightly) hit my head on the wall!!!

Yeah, I would. but only for the puzzles. The day he tried to tell me to go to bed early.... :twisted:

A combined puzzle collection might almost be as good as .... I can't think of anything. It would be fantastic!

Klara, Pantazi, Rox, to bed now!

While adopting seems a little bit far-fetched,
inheritance would do also.
You would just have to wait a little bit longer.
There is nobody in my family who would continue.
(we talked about such issues in another topic some time ago)

This was recalled to my memory several days ago when I won an auction for 36 solution books in different languages from a German seller.
Seeing where he was located and seeing what books were in the package (I hope there are at least three I don't yet have), I asked him whether he would know Mr X, because I got a feeling someone was selling Mr X's collection.
Mr X was an acquaintance from the pre-internet times with whom I exchanged books and who visited me several times in Luxembourg. He was only interested in written solutions, not puzzles themselves.
To my not so great surprise, the German seller is the grandson of Mr X, who is selling his grandfather's collection because nobody in the family got an interest into it.
Remembering that Christoph Bandelow told me some years ago that Mr X got all his books when Christoph stopped collecting, I couldn't help but curse again under my breath, seeing how the collection is being scattered to the four winds instead of sitting on my bookshelves.

I'm not cursing anyone, but it is a horrifying thought to have such a wonderful collection broken up. My daughter always reminds me that she can "make a bomb" when I die if she sells my puzzles. I'm hoping that by giving her her own little collection she will become interested enough to keep my little ones together.

A bigger concern though is when we move back to the states, I have to ship these things home with me! Won't the postman be happy that week!

And for the record, I'm open to inheriting! :wink: Don't scatter.

The thing I like about your collection Georges is that it is so "complete" all my "must haves" are there. But at the same time I hate it because I keep looking at your site, then going to ebay, then your site, then ebay. It is a shame that we don't have more shops here that sell puzzles. The only real option is ebay or online stores. We've got some Japanese department stores here, and I remember years ago that they carried all kinds of puzzles and brain teasers. (I guess that was back in the day when there were computer games other than sims) It's a shame that they stopped carrying them.

I've often wondered what the best countries were for puzzle collecting, and I would have to guess Germany and Japan. Weekends in Thailand always include an extra suitcase full of wooden puzzles, but the pickings are starting to get slim. Online shops are starting to get few and far between. I've watched so many come and go it isn't funny. Which makes me wonder how long puzzle collectors will be around. I believe there has been a resurgence in solving the Rubik's cube and that's wonderful. But it seems to me that while this site has seen a lot of wonderful new puzzles in 2008 commercially there haven't been that many.

I have to get away from this computer. I'm beginning to sound OLD. I guess being tied to one spot will do that to you. Appologies to all for my wandering brain.

Dont' forget me, Georges! The only reason I didn't respond before katsmom, is that I am a very obedient daugther who went to bed the moment you told me to. I don't think I should be punished for that. :cry: And I would prefer to keep my "father" as long as possible, rather than inheriting his puzzles early.

The problem with having three adoptive children all wanting to inherit your puzzles, is that you would have to divide your collection. If you decide to do that, I would suggest giving me the Christoph's magic jewel, the factory made Trajber's octahedron, some of your dino cubes and octahedrons, a spindle domino, a hungarian supernova, a Smart Alex, a skewb diamond, and all your custom made puzzles. :mrgreen: I promise to nurture them, play with them and love them as if they were my own children :D

Lol. That must make you a black sheep. I spent the wee hours chatting with my "adoptive brother" over the various puzzles out there. Mental conditions must be required for this one. :lol:

After this, I think we all need a "Brain-chek"! ;)


And Georges, katsmom, and Klara, I hope to see you all together sometime
during a big event, so that we can discuss the details of the... will!

Plus, we will have some fierce competition, as I believe the first person who
requested to be adopted was Terry.

:mrgreen:


Pantazis


PS Actually... *I* was the first who requested it more than two years ago! 8-)

two questions: 1) How do you keep that stuff in your head? You do this a lot-refer back to other links. That and the company for the Japanese puzzles. I'm impressed! 2) Want to do my PhD for me? I'm having trouble keeping anything in my head right now and have a meeting next week.

(1) I remember some (not all) details and then I use efficient searching, and
(2) Sure, I will solve it as soon as I receive it (we *are* talking about the puzzle, right? RIGHT???)

Sure, if you want to believe it's the puzzle go right ahead. Then you can send a solution of the hardest one. I am stuck mid way. So what else is new.

Me Hijack? No way.

It was an accident!

During my well planned raid to Georges' home, a fierce battle begun between
my ninjas and Georges' bear guards...

Sadly, during the encounter, Georges was solving a 7x7x7 V-cube and was so
concentrated on the cube, that he did not notice all the mayhem which was happening
in the surroundings.

One of the ninjas was holding a knife and approached Georges. When Georges realised
what was going on, he screamed "please don't harm my V-cube, kill me instead!"
The ninja tried to get the cube from Georges' hands but he slipped, his mask came off
and during his fall the knife cut through his head. Yes, the ninja was a Georges look-a-like!

Although my plans were ruined, do not expect me to tell you what they were.

And in a last gasp attempt to make this post sound relavant to the topic's title,
I must say, Georges' collection is amazing!

:mrgreen:

Pant, puff, gasp, ...
we made it back to the topic.
But it was a nice digression, as they say.

Here's another shot of the money I got.
The first pic didn't show how many notes there are because of low resolution.

Makes me wonder what happened to Kevin. He disappeared as quickly as he appeared.

I doubt it. For some reason, I don't think Georges needs the money or that he would sell a collection
that took 27 years to acquire.

Plus...the picture is titled "morethanthat"..... I think Georges is trying to tell us something. :wink:

People start doing strange things when they go through life changes (or when they think they are about to die) This inheritance thing worried me. And the mention of Mrs. Poopoohead...well, that was just plausable.

When I quit teaching kids, I opened up my teacher cabinets and tossed all to the wind. I wanted no reminders of it, and without thinking, tossed all my daughters books because they are for kids too...Only to have to go book shopping hte next day because we had no betime stories. :oops:

you sold every last puzzle you owned? you used to be my favorite collector. I can't believe you. I would've really wanted to buy that floppy cube.
