Hello to all puzzle enthusiasts,

My name is Gabriel, 25 from Portugal.
I'm new to the community and I would like to share with all of you my puzzle collection.
I started my collection over 3 months now with the Rubik's 3x3x3 and when I was looking for more information on the cubes,
I discovered that there's so much puzzles that I didn't even know they exist.
Suffice to say that I was amazed by so much diversity, that I decided I should start collecting these fantastic things.

I am a regular visitor of the forum and I already took a look at some of the puzzle collections here, and I must say,
some of them are so complete and diverse, they inspire everyone that is starting a puzzle collection.

Here in Portugal there are only a few puzzle stores, so my choice for purchasing new puzzles at a pretty good price is Ebay.

Here are 2 pictures of my entire collection (you can see individual pictures @ my website: http://www.mypuzzles.co.cc)

Thanks for reading ;-)

Hi, Sorry but none of my puzzles are currently for sale, and never will be. I do have some for trade only, and as a matter of fact, I have a spare Rubik's clock but, as you can see from the picture below, is missing a yellow piece (Already came like this when I bought it together with other puzzles on Ebay). The other side of the clock is fine though. Aside from the missing piece, the clock is fully functional...

Thank you for your messages. Comments are always welcome. :D
I try to keep my collection as much diverse as possible.
I focus more on the twisty and wooden puzzles, but above all, I like a challenge and for that, anything goes... :-P

Just updated my puzzle collection website. I realized that it was a bit tedious to see the pictures one by one.
Now it's easier to browse through the puzzles with the thumbnail picture gallery. Hope you all like it :-P

Your homepage is very nicely done! I like your categorization and that you use a (jigsaw) puzzle piece as the background.

Thank You for your kind words Celia :D
I tried to make a very simple and yet original page for my puzzles. That's my job as a webdesigner :-P
