Check this out Hugo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Days_of_Christmas After the questions come the investigations. :roll: Since you didn't do it, I did your homework for you.

Yes, today is the Epiphany and the last day of Christmas for Us But I have been using TP time in case you hadn't noticed.

The last day will be posted today, but for all of you who wait anxiously for the clock to turn midnight-don't wait up today :lol: I have a long boring day of meetings and won't be able to post until I get home. That's around 5 hours later than I have been doing. But it will come.

I hope the kings visit you all today!

*Rentlix-no complaints :) , other than Cubes, Megaminxes are the only puzzle I have 12 different varieties of. Well, I really have 15, but it is the 12 days of Christmas, isn't it?

Thanks Rox,

I was really looking forward to the 12th post. This was great fun!
(and we should thank your daughter too)

I'm glad the suspense of what was coming next entertained you :D . That was the purpose.

And the bug says thank you!

Hehe, 12-sided puzzles the 12th day.

...Do you know if Meffert will ever make that 6-color fluorescent Megaminx available again? Or at least the stickers?

I don't even have one megaminx.

I think I know what my next puzzle to order will be.

The megaminx is actually responsible for getting me fully into twisty puzzles. I went to Mefferts looking for one, but they didn't have them, so I got the Skewb/Ultimate/Pyraminx combo instead, and that was all it took. Of course, I later ended up getting several different Megaminxes. They're such a wonderful puzzle. :)

I have a chinaminx and a heavy white megaminx that has terrible stickers on it. I think I'll be looking to invest in a Meffert's one soon.

I had a chinaminx :( Looking into getting a better one now, I loved that puzzle.

On the topic of megaminxes, I've had a couple different brands of megaminxes (I know, past tense). But they've all been... upsetting. I was going to get a Megaminx after getting a Pyraminx Crystal, and realized I haven't tried Mefferts.

So is there a difference in quality between tiled/stickered megaminxes from Mefferts?


I liked the 12-sides for the 12th-day, but I didn't post that first...

I didn't think she was going to have 12 duplicates and was going to post "one twelve sided puzzle."
