Hello,

I think I have about 100 puzzles right now in my collection. I have moded some of them, but my mods are quite rough (I have used saw and milliput).
See below some pictures of the cube I have built.
All my cubes are black.
I have also classical rubik's, like golden cube, fischer cube, cuboid like 2*2*4 or 4*4*5, V-cubes, and an 11 color dogic.
Maybe, I will post pictures of them inthe future...

Arnaud

Nice litte collection you got there, and I really like the mods you made, even though they aren't perfect they must be really fun to handle ! :)

(P.S: still no sign of RIT dye in the mailbox, i'm expecting it soon, though)

Hey, I've been puzzling for over 30 years now and you have more self modded puzzles than me. Great job!

Hello,

Hre are news pictures of my collection. I have added a global picture, but for instance, my collection is not on a shelve...
The interesting pictures are about rarer puzzles, from cubervietnam, Greg and grigr.
Thank you to you three for these good puzzles.

- The mini hexaminx turn incredibly well (altough stickers are not well adjusted (too big, so the more little go away during the solve).
- The mental floppy is absolutely amazing (but hard to assemble...)
- The ghost cube is really a good job
- The ultra mini puzzle of grigr are strong enough to be solve (with attention), but are fragile.

Hope you enjoy

Following Konrad's advice, I have ordered cabinet from 'sora.de'. They are very serious and fast. Prices are not cheap, but honest. Thank you Konrad!
Here are some pictures of my collection. This is all the place my wife has allowed me, but I am very happy with it !
Also, pictures of my (few) shapeways puzzles, and at the end, of my toilets!!
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures and for the lights...
Moreover, some puzzles are difficul to see (for example, there is a golden cube behind the ghost cube...)

That is a beautiful collection and really well displayed. Unfortunately I can't display my Twisties - the present Mrs S won't let me! She only likes my wooden puzzles. Plus I don't have room.

Those cabinets do look good - I wonder whether they deliver to the UK? And then I wonder whether 'she' would let me have them! :shock:

Haha, I'm going to return the favour here Kevin. You once pointed out to me that Sora have a UK website, in the thread where Konrad displayed his puzzles, after I was wondering the same thing... clearly all the puzzling has pushed that information out of your head :D

so here is the link :)

http://www.sora-shop.com/

A beautiful collection indeed, and I do love those display cases too. As you say, rather expensive, but I would really like to get some. The problem is, whenever I have the money to spare, I always find puzzles I want to spend the money on instead! :lol:

Very nice collection and the cabinets really help to display the puzzles in all their glory :)
I'm glad that you like them.
I think I need more of them. The problem is that in the room where most of them are (actually the room of our son, when he lived still at home) I have to get rid of a wardrobe first.
I hope my wife will agree with my plans. :wink:

Thanks guys. Indeed, the cabinets help to display the puzzles and help to give you the desire to solve them again (because you can see them). Yesterday, i have solved again the skewb ultimate and I have scrambled again the golden cube for tonight.

That's always the problem... But they help us to stay wise...

So about the pochmann teraminx in the bathroom, I hope you never spend enough time in the bathroom to enjoy a full solve :lol: ! But it looks like you have more puzzles than me, maybe it's all of the repeated puzzles. I counted yesterday, and I have 102 twisty puzzles and 3 non-twisty puzzles.

I hope !! :lol:
I have counted all my puzzles, but I have forgotten the exact numbers. Something like 130 I think ?

But, this year, I have not buy a lot a puzzle. Maybe just 5... I don't have so much place, and I realise that it costs me a lot!
I think I would make a break in the acquisition and try to solve again the puzzles I have.
But, I will however buy new cuboids or others puzzles I like very much.
I also wanted to buy a radio 3 for the solving challenge, but my wife told me that for 150€, she prefers a week-end or a good restaurant. Sorry Eitan! it will not be for now.
Idem for master starminx and gigahexaminx... :(
Ahh, if only flat were not so expensive in Paris (and suburbs)...

I think you have a really nice cabinet, and you managed to display each of your puzzle well. I have a cabinet as well but mine is a mess...... :lol:
