Ouch!
This creates a number of questions.

Can you post an image of the Blind Mans Pyraminx showing the kyrilic letters?
Can you give more informations about the Number Barrel?
There are 31 tiles and one hole, right?
How many tiles for how many colors?
Can you bring the Zebra-thing with you to the Netherlands?
Does the back side of the Booby-thing shows anything useful? Do you know anything about it?
Can you send me some images of the 2x2xNs?
There is no 2x2x10 in the museum, yet.

BTW: Awesome, Claus!

Claus, I recollect a remark from Andreas that you do not get many responses in this , because people do expect something similar every month :) (It is like expecting the unexpected.)

True enough, still I'm sure that most here recognize your monthly posts.
I have no idea how you manage it every month to get so many new puzzles.
Awesome! :D
(I hope you can tell me privately at DCD how many puzzles there are in your collection. That is, if you are still able to count them :lol: )

Can you post more pictures of Snookered? I've been curious about that one for a long time.

Hi Jared,
Snookered is one of several "Instant Insanity"-style puzzles issued by Wellingtons.
I have tried to show as many of them as I know of, with brief notes about each, on my website in the pattern puzzle section:
http://robspuzzlepage.com/pattern.htm#wellingtons

I list them in alphabetical order, so scroll down to find Snookered...

I hope this helps.

The cylinder has 6 pieces for each color, but white has 7 pieces. The number 24 is not there.

Nobody asked for this one?

Only you can hide a shape variant of Gem V like this. Shame on me for not finding it. Shame on you for hiding it.
It does not change its shape, does it?
Why have you bandaged it into a 2x2x2 like the table says?

Andreas

I made an error.

The cylinder has following tiles:

1-6: red (6)
7-12: yellow (6)
13-18: blue (6)
19-23: green (5)
24-31: white (8)
However the solve puzzle looks like?

I would say yes.
Compare with the second image here:

No idea about the barrels solved state.

Hi,

if you rotate this picture by 180 degrees, you will see cyrillic letters.
It says (imho) is that the puzzle originally cost 4 Rubels.
Our Russian friends will know for sure and be able to confirm this.

Greetings,
Martin
