Professor Pyraminx, Lanlan Master Skewb, Schell's Brewery 3x3(from my folks), and an MF8 dino dodec from Mizzle.

Love them all.
My girlfriend lives in Pennsylvania (myself in Ohio) and has recently gotten really into puzzles, so every week we order each other a puzzle as a surprise. It's quite fun! My gift this week from her was the master skewb.

I was going to question who hunts moose but then I saw you were from Canada :lol: I haven’t gotten a new puzzle in quite a while. Which less rare puzzle do you guys suggest?


Aha, I was joking with that bit, it's actually illegal in my province (although people still do it quite a bit). My next puzzle is going to be the 3x3x6 from Witeden, you could get that. Cuboids are always fun.

I also have a KO floppy cube I ordered from Hong Kong... at least 2 months ago. It still hasn't arrived :cry:

It was only $2 with shipping though, so it doesn't matter that much.


And the reason you posted you are buying KO cubes is????

Come on, I know you are new, but I am sure to get the account you had to read the posts. A bit of common sense goes a long long way. in this instance-you are at a dead standstill. Think before you post-oh, and go back and read some of the past posts.

As far as I understand, the KO rules are like this:
- Do not advertise, endorse, or provide links to KO products.
- If you must provide an image of a KO, attach it to your post instead of putting the image in the post.
But saying you have ordered a KO seems okay by those rules...

And yes, I did read the sticky about KOs.

My point is, back read!

I'm a moderator right? (Still not sure how that happened :lol: ) At any rate, I have bought KO's and sent them to the designer/producer/manufacturer who made them first. And the forum still attacked me for doing so!!

It is better to keep quiet about it than to shout out that you are waiting for a KO that you purchased. By blatantly stating this, you are basically asking to get yelled at by some of the more KO hating members of the forum.

Honestly, if you don't post a link I don't care. But I'm giving you a warning about what may be in store for you. Proceed as you will.

If you think about the KO issue in terms of a fixed set of rules you have already misunderstood it. I have said this many times before (here is a start, or search for 'respect' with 'DLitwin' as the author) but the most important part about the KO policy is one of respect.
Announcing that you bought a KO of a puzzle instead of the real thing is disrespectful to the maker of the original puzzle.

This site does not tell you what you can or cannot buy, or even what you should our should not buy. That is your choice. We do ask (and enforce) that you not use this forum to disrespect those who make this forum great.

I ordered a Helicopter Cube and 2x2x4 Rubik's Tower (thanks to whoever recommended the tower!) finally!

My dad was all like "YOU ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY THEY HAVE NO RESALE VALUE" and I was all like "lol nope TP marketplace"

Anyway, due to my extremely close proximity to the Puzzle Master warehouse, they should arrive by Tuesday (for those of you reading this post in the future, today is Saturday AND SUNDAY COMES AFTERWARDS)

Got my Smaz Dino cylinder and a Witeden super 3x3 the other day. The super 3x3 is now a stickerless 3x3x5 that's why there are no pictures. Can't wait to sticker it!

Yesterday my grandparents droves 600 miles down to France to deliver my Meffert's package, which contained a Helicopter Dodecahedron and a regular Crazy Tetrahedron. Both of them are very nice. Definately worth buying! (The puzzles, not the grandparents :lol:).

My V-Cube 7 arrived! It's already scrambled and I'm struggling to solve the last two faces' centers. Other than that I think I can solve it fine :D I already have one edge all paired up.

My Crazy Tetrahedron Standard was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. It was the fastest shipping I've ever seen from Mefferts. Awesome!

I haven't solved it yet, just spent last evening playing with a layer-by-layer approach which hasn't worked too well. I know it solves like a Skewb Ultimate - I just wanted to find an alternative...

Just got my White Tuttminx, managed to trade for it rather than shelling out a lot of money :)
I had to drastically tighten the screws and get to grips with the turning, buit all I can say is what an awesome puzzle.

Got a CubeTwist Square-2 earlier today!

I checked with a TP moderator before buying it, in order to make sure it wasn't a KO, and it turns out that I had, unknowingly, contacted the original inventor!!

I'm going to see if I can figure out my own solution method before I look online.

I looked online and I found several different numbers for the number of permutations for the Square-1. Each one is disregarding or regarding several things, like symmetries and layer rotations. The reason I'm saying this is I'm wondering, does anyone know how many permutations this thing has? Counting symmetries and layer rotations and middle layer misalignment and all that junk?

Got my official TomZ Curvy Copter from the Now Store today. Can't wait to play with it tonight!

Referencing my last post above, I have now determined that the Crazy Tetrahedron Standard is much easier to solve than I first thought.

Finally got my white Dino Dodecahedron yesterday. My first thought was "Wow! It's big!" I really like it, though, and went through a solve right away. It's a little stiff, but I think I'll be able to break it in in short order.

Thanks to MF8 and to the ebay seller I purchased from.

Yesterday, I got a very nice (and large) package from a seller raising money for college. It contained the following puzzles:

3x3x4
Helicopter Cube
V-Cube 6
DaYan Gem 1, 2, 3
Helicopter Dodecahedron
Dino Dodecahedron
Unusual 3x3x3 speedcube
Unpillowed Mastermorphix

I was very impressed by the turning of all of the puzzles; the seller clearly put great care into making his puzzles perfect. The DaYan Gem 2 (Concept 11) turns like butter, there are no clicks on the V-Cube 6, and the 3x3x4 isn't "Scratchy" like the others that I have had. I am very pleased, and a video will be up on my YouTube page soon (see the link in my signature, although I will also slap a hyperlink in this post afterwards).

I just got (literally JUST got) an original 1980's Studio Cube. Very satisfied with it, the puzzle came in great condition (but unsolved :lol: ), and the special White 80s logo is still very preserved. Some of the flourescent orange stickers are scuffed, but this is to be expected. Extremely proud to have one of the originals.

And two weeks ago I also recieved a Capuzle, a Trillion, and a Miniature Backspin. I love the Capuzle, like the Trillion, and can barely tolerate the Mini Backspin :roll: (the little yellow cover keeps falling off and marbles spill everywhere... sort of like some other puzzle I know - I'm looking at my Hungarian Rings over there...)

My mf8 Helicopter Dodecahedron arrived yesterday, and putting on the stickers was a pain (but worth it).

I've already worked out my own method for solving it, and I'd have to say that it's worth the money :D

Just received Crazy Jupiter (to go with my Mercury) and a Tomz Curvy Copter.
I have to say that the Curvy is fantastic.
I managed to solve the Jupiter by myself - not difficult!
And I have played with the Copter enough to get a face comutator and corner twister, so I will have a go at a (non jumbling!) solve tonight.

Now I will have to wait with the rest of you for the Face Turning Dodecahedron from mf8 to arrive. :D

Hi Puzzlers,

this puzzles arrived this morning. The 3x3 cube in middle back is a Rubik's cube with bad quality. This is my first fast self made bandaged cube.
Oh, I must think about a color scheme for the face turning starminx.
The mini cube in front is a little nice gift from Calvin. In left back is the Bermuda Venus with Fisher construction.

Nice puzzles! This sucks because I didn't know that we had to sticker our own Starminx. I can't put on stickers perfectly to save my life.

BTW: I'd love to have a face turning Starminx badly.

yes this puzzle sucks. I hate it and put if far away.

But there are advantages:

1) It's easy to disassemble. A few twists and it's disassembled.
2) You are do training for the fingers if you become a surgeon or a cards magican.
3) You learn do do the sequences very slow, this trains your brain.

Oddly enough, I am training to be a card magician :lol: ...but what sucks about it (in particular)? The turning? Locks up, or is too stiff?

Ok, I like this. Are you good? do you have Videos ? Which card tricks ?

Back to the puzzles.

Yes it's stiff. Some faces blocks other faces. My english is to bad to describe it detailed. Perhaps some other people can write his experience.

You can find a few more comments about the ft Starminx here. Maybe, Andrea had some bad luck?

@Andrea: No videos, I am not terribly good, but I go to a magic camp with card magicians each year. Discussion can be continued in off-topic or PM if you want.

Is there a reason why you chose that variant of the Bermuda cubes over the others?

@Konrad I asked before those other posts were made, I think. Still undecided about getting an ft Starminx, because I have a mini version that you posted would probably be of better quality, but then again I can always mess around with a Mass-produced version...

Hi Quicksolver,

Yes. I own the 8 standard Bermuda Cubes without Fisher-style construction.
In fisher-style construction the pieces with 2 colors are connected with the core.
Its more difficult because you must orientate the center pieces.
There are 2 new Bermuda Cubes with Fisher style. The Mercury and the Venus.
The Venus is more difficult than the Mercury, so I ordered the Venus.

Cheers,
Andrea

I got my Mercury and Venus cube a little while ago.
I have only scrambled the Mercury and that has been very fun so far.
My strategy is to avoid any tutorials and learn it's nature on my own.
I haven't solved it yet. Very nice puzzle!

Just out of curiosity does it pop often?

I could not decide where to upload this image. Here or to the Rare puzzle topic, but I think this is more proper place for it.

These are the puzzles of December:
(Most of them are gift from Calvin)

Well, they are not very rare, but at least in Germany it is not that easy to get a Teraminx. Today I got my Gigaminx and my Teraminx in the mail.

On top of the third "toy" of today ;-)

...I got the 4x4x5 and the 5x5x4 last month too and like them a lot.
The 5x5x4 is the better turning of the two, but they both have their own personality.

But today I got the 3x4x5 (mass produced) which I am looking forward to play with tonight.
