No kidding Michael. Although I haven't been a collector for as long as most people here, in the short amount amount of time I have spent here I have learned so much. I never thought I'd have the collection that I do because I really was a wannabe speedcuber(is that one word?) who stumbled on the old forum. I guess I went from speed only to collecting after I saw a picture of Square 1 on the net, and had to have one. Then after seeing how vast the sequential movement puzzle category is, I had to try as many as I could.

This is such a great hobby and although I enjoy the uniqueness of it, I wish more people would see the light and turn their playstation off and try some real games that really test your brain. Maybe we could convince more speedcubers to come over to collecting. It would drive up ebay prices, but it would also open the door for new puzzles and revivals of old ones.

Here's to 2005 being even better than 2004 (raises coffee cup)

Maybe it's time somebody did something about this?.... Couldn't the "Great Cube Revival" be a challenge all in it's own? Hmmm, who knows about these wonderful puzzles and wants to see it revived?

curious isn't it?

How about making a great playstation game that lets you make any variation of twisty type puzzle possible. =)

Well, there is something close, but instead of playing with the puzzles in a PlayStation format, you can play them in a Window enviroment...this has to be the only reason i regret not having a PC, (i prefer Mac's) :D

I found this site today ...I don't think he's a member here, althought he has a link to TwistyPuzzle.com.

Puzzle mods seem to be popular in Japan...I wonder why ?

Has anyone won anything from this seller? How is the quality of his workmanship? I have won 1 item. It was a good puzzle, but not as good as some other puzzle builders. Anyone else have any comments?

How would you describe the puzzle in quality? What could he have paid more attention to during the construction?

just curious,
