I think we need a thread comparing different versions of mass-produced puzzles. It could all be listed in one thread and would include things like turning, popping, (average) price, ect. I think that would be easier than watching reviews on YouTube. What do you guys think?

I think this idea could quickly turn to disaster. Tread carefully and be wary of the KO policy!

I actually enjoy watching reviews on Youtube. It makes it much easier to see how much variance there is in puzzle quality, what different versions there are, what various opinions are, and, of course, every person always has something unique to add.

I think a thread like that would be useful if/once a person finds out as much info as they want from reviews, because they could find basic information (like price, where to buy, etc. as you said) which may or may not have been lacking in the reviews.

Again, tread carefully. If this leads to information on where to buy for many of the cubes being compared, you will be ban slapped. :lol:
