Twisty is a place for those who want to trade puzzles with others and for general puzzle discussion.
I respect Wayne Johnson, the 30 years old young man who released this leading web site of
Puzzle/Game/Toy industry. Before I just join the discusses, and now I have a lot of puzzles to trade.

This is a special trading -

(1). There are no real puzzle items will be purchased by you, but some of their pictures you have viewed.
(2). The buyer should not be an individual puzzle lover.
(3). The buyer(s) can give the first name to his/their won puzzles.
(4). After trading, I still own these puzzles, but the buyer(s) can sell as many puzzles as he/they can.


(1). These puzzles are the members of DYNACUBE family, including

Real 3-D word games ?like the picture (see the link)

Special sliding puzzles - like the pictures (see the link)

Rubik-Lego-like puzzles - like the pictures (see the link)

Face-Changing puzzles - like the pictures (see the link)

(2). The buyer would be an experienced producer, because I never sold any puzzle to an
individual person, and hope I can keep the policy.

(3). There are still no proper names for these puzzles, but their family name is the
registered trademark - DYNACUBE. (Both US & NZ.)

(4). The buyer would be happy to manufacture these puzzles and pay me a royalty.
The buyer can use these objects with a license agreement.
(a). DYNAMIC TOYS (Registered trademark).
(b). DYNACUBE (Registered trademark).
(c). DYNACUBE.COM web domain name.
(d). DYNACUBE.NET web domain name.
(e). The Monopolized Rights to be granted to me. (PCT/NZ00/00169 & WO 01/17625)

Both Toy/Puzzle/Game manufacturer & broker are welcome.
Please e-mail me to the address -

Thank you, my friends on Twisty.

OK I am now convinced the sliding puzzle has existed for some time now.

I dug out my copy of Rubik's cubic compendium (published 1986). The concept of a 3d sliding cube is discussed in this book and a 2x2x2 model illustrated. Apparantly, both Rubik and Singmaster independently came up with the idea of a 3D sliding puzzle, but both discovered Piet Hein (of Soma fame) had beaten them to it at an earlier date.

regards, Steve

Dear Steve,

Thank you for your information. I know what your misunderstanding is now.

I NEVER said that I am the inventor of ¡§Sliding Puzzle¡¨. I just said I am the inventor of a
special sliding puzzle which has the special features below:

(1). When the puzzle was solved, the missing space is hidden in the middle, not at corner.

(2). The player can manipulate the small cubes of the special sliding puzzle to be in one of the
perfect combinations. In each perfect combination, each side of the puzzle shows a complete
image - a solid colour, a full-size picture, or a complete graph, etc.

(3). Any small cube of the special sliding puzzle can be pushed into the middle, and fall down
to a adjacent position other than where it was from.

(4). We can stand the solved special sliding puzzle on a cup with two opposite corner in the
vertical line and keep the missing space in the middle.

Can you find these features from your books ? I guess the examiners had searched more books
than you had searched, but I would still be glad to be taught.

There may be many PATENTS exist in similar products together, if the inventors can distinguish
their novel ideas from the existing ones, and they invented the inventions with inventive steps.

If an executive found something interesting but maybe not novel, and bet it would not be patented,
then he decided to manufacture it, that is a very dangerous business.
