You missed one on the 4 sided tetrahedrons, The viewtopic.php?p=72732&highlight=#72732
Plateus Tetraforce 1 is the name i believe. I;m not sure if this is the exact same as Greenhills tetrahedron...

What are the boundaries of the puzzles you want in your database? It looks like most 2D puzzles are out, as well as marble and track puzzles (massage ball, for instance).

Also, what are your goals on sticker variations? You have multiple Dino cubes, so presumably that means any puzzle with differings stickers qualifies, but you will fill up with 3x3x3s if that is the case.

Knowing the boundaries will help us know what to propose to you.

Dave

P.S. Oh yeah, how about my Square-2, here are a few pictures:

the square 2 is here ... http://www.mechanicalpuzzles.net/63.jpg
top left....

this database is only for 3d puzzles (rubik´s like), stickers variations only for manuffactured puzzles
(e.g megaminx 12, megaminx 6).. but not al the 3x3x3

no difference between tiles and stickers......

about how much money would you guess you had invested in your collection? and did you buy one of the recent nested cubes? or is that from a long time ago?

trixter - if you're talking about Tony Fisher's Nesting cubes... Those were made this past DCD. So they are quite recent.

Juanan and Frank, Two great data bases.
I don't know much about Juanan's but I know several people have been assisting Frank to create his comprehensive catalogue of puzzles. It's well worth a look also.

On the page of 14 sides puzzles I noticed that you do not have the puzzle at the bottom of this page:
http://twistypuzzles.com/articles/spotl ... rgen.shtml

In fact I think you'll find that there are multiple puzzles on that page you don't have in your database yet.

@juanan:
There are two X-Cubes in your database. The differ by stickering. Is that intentional?
I see, that you included the I-Cube. Are you going to include every bandaged puzzles somebody (like me; :twisted: ) will post?

You asked for it. :twisted:
It is possible that I posted this picture before. I know the quality could be better. I could search through my archives for detailed pictures of every single variant. The problem is, that my collection is distributed between the north and the baltic sea => no possibility to make new pictures.

Don't forget Adam Zamora's sticker variation on the 4x4 X-Block. It's a great puzzle. Somehow it got into the hands of Darren, so I got a chance to play with it. Fantastic puzzle.

It still has 120 sides. Anyway the Icosahedron Megaminx functions like a 12 sided Megaminx and the Icosahedron Skewb functions like a 6 sided Skewb and they are both under their actual side count.

That's an amazing collection Andreas! Can you describe all those sticker variations and bandaged cubes? There must be quite a few I've never heard of before...

juanan, excellent resource! As a suggestion, it would be very much handier if you include some information fields similar to the old database here for more information than a picture and a name.

Feel free to glean descriptions for the existing older puzzles, and perhaps others can contribute descriptions and other information?

Fantastic! I've been perusing the TP database for some time now but this has all of the modifications i've been looking around for right in one place! Using your database i've compiled a list of modifications to do sometime in the future. Many thanks.

Also, i'd like to second sausages suggestion. I would wholly participate in entering information regarding puzzles that are not currently described if at all possible. Thanks again for the hard work you've done here! As a new member this has been amazingly helpful.

This is surely the most complete "spider-based" puzzle list to date.
Well done juanan!

PS I would love to see this list included in the CFF magazine.
