No pictures, but you all know what a Black Helicopter Dodecahedron looks like.
Also, I received a large box of wooden/Metal puzzles from Rox. Random generic ones, so to give names would be both confusing and near impossible. :lol:

A nice shirt, an iTunes gift card, and an unexpected gift card to Best Buy which I used to get a higher capacity micro SDHC card for my camera.

A wonderful couple days with my children and grandchildren—a 7 year old grandson, and 2 granddaughters less than a year old.

A short, yet pleasant, visit with my sisters and aunt and uncle, all of which I only see a time or two each year.

A generous bonus check from my boss that will doubtless go toward paying bills, but that's a good thing.

Time to relax and enjoy the Professor Pyraminx I got with money I received for my birthday in November.

My postman still hasn't brought the 30th Anniversary Pyraminx I ordered from Mefferts in November :(

No mail delivery on the 26th (they had to get at least one extra day off for Christmas and they were already off on Sundays anyway), so hopefully I get it tomorrow December 27th.

It seems people have strayed a bit from the original intent of this thread.

It's well and good to share what non-puzzle things you may have received in Off Topic, but let's keep this thread focused to puzzles actually received (not on the way). As noted before, pictures please!

Thanks Juanan for a perfect example of what this thread is about :)

Dave

My fault Dave. I merged the threads on request.

As for Funnymonkey's puzzles....I was a bit cheeky. :lol: :lol:

I also sent a bunch not so unsolved.

Sorry Dave, I didn't take photos, but made videos of them and since they were Christmas gifts....

I got way more stuff than expected. I´m in Austria, so we couldnät bring much on the plane, and mz muscle memorz is killing me with the Austrian kezboards :x

Anzwaz, I was at the Rathausplatz Christmas market in Vienna, and I was looking around. A toz stall had a Sudokube, so I was pleasantlz surprised (didnät buz it though), and then I saw this stand DEDICATED to puyyles, name of Constatin (long German word that probably means "puzzle" since it had "spiel" in it). It had an awesome selection of twistz puyyles, so I bought mzself a Master Skewb and Rex Cube for 45 euro. Mz parents also got me an Impossiball from the stand (Iäve wanted one for a while but I was bummed out to see that it had 6 colours) which I opened on Christmas Eve.

I also got the 8-planet Bermuda set on Christmas Day! Thez are great fun.

Does anyone besides me right now think that this trip was wasted on youth who know no better :roll: ....You silly boy! :( When you get older you'll look back on this and cry over a missed opportunity. Lord knows when I lived there late 80's-early 90's I did the same thing and am seriously crying now.

Probably you can not see it, but the black one is completely scrambled. :lol:

On Christmas Eve I got notice from Tom that they were returned to sender.

I bought as much as I could, sorry :(

Anyway, I´m actually at my aunt´s house but my dad said I had to go skiing immediately so no time to fix the typos.

Then might I suggest that you go fix them as soon as you get back. That is no excuse as Davehas said before. Please read rule number 12.

Remember, if you want people to be able to find your posts in the future, they must be in good English. If not...they disappear. Not having time to do it properly is no excuse!

My brother was kind enough to get me a puzzle for XMas:

I had played with a prototype at IPP31 and had a solution I thought would work, but never really solved it. I was happy that this solution worked when I received my copy.

My grandma let me order $100 worth from hknowstore and I can't open them until Christmas! I have a black Guhong, white Guhong, 42mm zhanchi, clear MoYu WeiLong, white Gans III, and a white CX3. There's even a tiny hole in the package. So close yet so far away.

I start getting packages in early December filled with Christmas puzzles. I try to be good and not open them, but that doesn't always happen. Anyway, here is some of what I have managed to find in my post and under the tree...

Others are still on the way, but January puzzles are not quite the same as Christmas toys now are they.

I hope Santa brought you all the puzzles on your list, and if he didn't...well then I hope you got enough money to buy the rest for yourself. :lol:

Please post all your Holiday puzzle shots here.

I noticed that no one has yet made a thread about the puzzles they received for Christmas. [Admin: Actually, we had, and now this is merged in :)] All this thread is is telling everyone else what you got as presents that is puzzle-related. I'll start: Between 4-5 people, I received 15 puzzles.
1. Bauhinia (Rex) Dodecahedron
2. Face-turning Starminx
3. 3x3x3 Mixup Cube
4. All 0-face Circle Cube
5. Black and white checkered 4x4x6
6. All 0-face Cirle Megaminx
7. Crazy 4x4x4 Type 3
8. Constrained Cube Ultimate
9. White Mosaic Cube w/ ball core
10. Wheel of Wisdom
11. 4x4x4 Octahedron (stickerless)
12. 4x4x4 Hexagonal Dipyramid
13. Meffert's Vulcano
14. Calvin's stickerless Circle Temple Cube
15. Calvin's stickerless Circle I Cube
Thanks to all of my parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles for getting me all of the puzzles on my list!

Actually, one was made some years ago, and (around any holiday) is exempt from the bump rule. In fact someone recently posted.

Wait. You got $500 worth of puzzles? I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess only child.

As for me, all I got was a gear octahedron. I wanted Timur's version, but my girlfriend got me Oskar's version my mistake. Still fun, though.

I got a neat vintage Lifesaver's puzzle where you have to stack all of the Lifesavers into it's container. The package claims there is only one solution, but I've already found 2. I also got a vintage sardines puzzle where you have to fit them all into the tin.
