Hey Forum,

Im just starting to get into puzzle collecting, so my collection is rather small at the moment. I just wanted to show my puzzles and maybe see what I should add next? Excluding a 2x2, 4x4, and 5x5. Those are on the way.

Well here is the picture.

Wow. Even for someone who's new to collecting you have some nice puzzles, like the Golden Cube and Pyraminx Crystal. I would suggest a 3x3x4 or a Square-1. Perhaps a Skewb shape mod.

I was thinking anything split and mini :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, a 3D printed puzzle can always look good in a collection: I have about 20 customs and 10 mass produced, so it's a small collection, but i'm very happy of having lot of mods! (especially th borg, but that's not mine :mrgreen: )

And look at the title of your topic: it has two meanings 8-)

If Tony makes that joke again... :roll: :lol:

You have a Master Skewb but no Skewb? :? I would definitely suggest a Skewb. I would also suggest getting a Trignis/Vulcano. It's quite challenging, but it's definitely satisfying to work out a solution yourself (much like the Master Skewb). The tips and bigger triangles aren't too hard, but pairing the edges (especially with parity) can be quite interesting to solve. :D

But where are the MINI puzzles! All I see here are normal sized puzzles!

(Oh no Adam stole Tony's joke)

But in all seriousness, nice collection. You have some semi-rare puzzles in there.
