Hello, I am currently selling this ultra rare puzzle, now superfluous to my own collection. For those (few?) of you who are not familiar with it, it can best be described as a better-quality hexagonal version of Rubik's Rings. It closes early UKT on 11th October.
Current price, Wednesday 6th October is Pound Sterling 10.49.

The full text of my item is as follows.
"Betcha Can't" Flexible Hexagon (TM)
A new dimension in the magic of manipulation puzzles
This is the super-rare puzzle, inspired by Rubik's Rings, which took flexible puzzling to new heights of difficulty and elegance. This is positively the last such item I have for selling. The puzzle still has its original adhesive instruction label in place, and the puzzle and box are in close to new condition. There are hairline marks visible on close inspection, but probably not visible from the picture.. The diameter is almost seven and a half inches. Pen shows comparative size.
From the box:
"There are six hexagon panels that are jointed in two edges. By manipulation, these hinged edges change places. You can change the configuration from a hexagon, to two rows of three panels, to a half round hexagon, to a three leaf clover, to, well, just about any shapes imaginable. As you chnage the order of the panels and bring them back again, the direction of the pattern will change, adding a new dimension of difficulty to this kind of puzzle. It might even be tough enough for Erno Rubik."
Please contact the seller for several more photographs of item and packaging. Window ledge and pen are for display purposes only and are not included in the sale.
2nd class P&P at cost, recycled packaging.
