Meffert's puzzles half price at Woolworth's at the moment. Bargain. Just bought some Skewbs.

Not sure if it's a nation wide thing or on a store by store basis. Definitely worth a look.

Wow, that is very cheap compared to those at Meffert's. If there's anyone who sells them at those price in my country, that would be almost impossible.

I've only ever seen them available at this one store chain and they're not available all the time. Unfortunately it's not a common thing to see them on the shelf :(

I remember that offer too. It was partly responsible for getting me back into twisty puzzles after a 2 decade
"break" :D

The quality of the Pyraminx pieces is terrible. I noticed every Pyraminx in the store had the same very noticeable mold defects. The white ones from the 80s are much better quality, albeit discoloured.

The quality of the Skewbs I bought was fantastic.

If you buy them from Mefferts they come with Woolworth's UK printed on the box but covered up with a sticker or black marker. Curious.

Yes I noticed that too. There is obviously a big deal between the two. Great stuff but I wish Woolworths would stock them more often. I'll try and check my local branch soon.

Justin, you mention Meffert's puzzles and then Skewbs and Pyraminxes, but did they have any other Meffert's puzzles in stock?
