It's not so much Munsters in particular. Roalex sliding piece puzzles on their original cards are very collectible and can command high prices. "Astro Boy" sold for $3000 USD.

Just won this puzzle on EBay. Never seen it before, but it looks interesting and unique. Does anybody know anything about it?

Hi Ryan -
I think it's a puzzle by Einstein Brain Games - no info on it online as it's either a relatively new puzzle or just a very small run of the puzzle was made (I don't know which, if either!) - just the tips are twistable, I think.
Hope this helps and please update us when you get it!

Thanks Zzupler,

I was hoping it would be some kind of twisty puzzle, hopefully a little more challenging than just trivial tips. The seller said he was unable to solve it, and if the tips were trivial one would think even a non-puzzler could suss it. I can't imagine how it would twist though if its more than just trivial tips, what type of puzzle would it be based on?

I might be able to find some type of branding on it perhaps once I get it and yes I'll definitely share some pictures and more info soon!

I assume you do not want to cut through the "stickers". In that case it would be either a 2x2x2 or a Little Chop or both in a hybrid system.

A Nintendo Crossover (red) listed for £1500 GBP best price offer of £400 was accepted after one day of a 30 day listing - if I'd known the seller would accept such a markdown I would have been very tempted to make a bid! Congratulations to the winner!

[mod hat on]Normally we don't allow live auction links as per the forum rules, but I think it's safe to say that the price is out of reach for most people and this is probably not a serious auction[mod hat off]

Of course if I were to have drawn the picture, it would be worth twice that! :lol:

I'm sure you'll like gigaminx. I worked on it for a month.
Each tile was made by hand. Thank you for your purchase.
And Happy Birthday!

How did you make the tiles? Modifying Meffert tiles?

I really like how it turned out! Good work! (It's a bit of a bummer that the center is a bit small though.)

I think the brown "Bognár Bűvös Bolygók" worth a lot!

And the funniest in the whole thing, it was only 3700 HUF with postal fee what is around 16 USD or 12,5 EUR!!! :shock:

It starts with all the lights on and using the eight buttons you turn them all off.
At some stage (when I figure out how to plug it safely) I will be making a video of this nice little solid box.

Is it safe to assume this is based on the same concept as the Chinese rings disentanglement puzzle?

I would say a simple version of Lights Out. In the instructions, it states
that the minimum number of moves is 170, which is a nice number!

Hopefully I could make a video in the next couple of months as there is
some damage in the circuits and I am in the process of fixing it up!
(and why not, create a couple more copies!)

:mrgreen:

No, I'm pretty sure it is a Chinese Rings variant. The number of moves for n rings/lights is (2^n-1)*2/3, which for n=8 gives 170 moves.

It seems to be an DIY hobby kit, described in Popular Electronics magazine:
http://www.swtpc.com/mholley/PopularElectronics/May1971/PE_May1971.htm

Edit: the article doesn't say it is based on Chinese Rings, just that it is based on an ancient puzzle.

Regarding the logic, indeed, it is undeniably using binary. But gamewise/looks it is of the
Lights Out type. Remember, the Lights Out games have many variants, and in this puzzle,
just like the later ones, the goal is to switch off all the lights.

Moreover, it seems to be more confusing, as the eight buttons, provide a lot more freedom
(i.e direct moves) when compared to the typical binary puzzles we all knew until now.

Yes it is a DIY kit, and it looks like a very good project for electronic engineering students.

I really hope I can go through a video solve before my (2-3 month) long trip, but that depends
on how early I could replace some of its parts (we only have snail mail at Kastellorizo island!)

$11 for a Russian Domino is unheard of!
I don't check eBay very often, but I'm shocked no one else bid!

Great catch Adam,

Please mention the puzzle and price in your posts here as ebay remove the listings after a while and the links here will be worthless without these details.

although I got mine just a few weeks back for only $11 you did out bid me on this by $1. sorry for making it more expensive for you but I wanted a 2nd one.

Did anyone see the magic domino that was in its case? it was on bid then it disappeared. looks like someone gave the seller a good price to end the auction. I was very bummed because I have been looking for one in a case for some time now.

Hahaha, I think many people were outbid on that. Including me.
I don't think I have ever seen that kind of action on an auction.
54 bids and some furious final seconds. Congratulations!
It's some consolation to see it turn up in the hands of a twistypuzzles member.

I found this on a craigslist add 1800 miles away from me. a decent price for this puzzle, he was nice enough to ship it to me. it was in bad condition but still a nice find.

Thanks Adam I have been watching that domino for a while it was up several times and I actually forgot to bid once. I dont really know why Russian collectors that use that site have ignored it. I have never seen blindsman domino sold or listed it must be pretey rare. Also what do you think is good price to sell a Russian domino for ?
