I was looking around online for puzzles when i found this http://www.puzzlemethis.com/cgi-bin/puzzle/TSM797287.html?menu=
I had never seen it before, but it looks interesting and kind of reminded me of this puzzle: http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13059
Have any of you seen this before? I did a forum search and there were no results.

Yeah, I've seen it before. It was on puzzle-shop.de or puzzlemaster or something like that. But yeah, I have seen it before.

This puzzle looks like something that would fit in with the twistypuzzles shop. *cough* Sandy *cough* :wink:

You would have found results if you had searched on the name that is actually on the packaging: Cmetrick Too.

I have one of these. They're not very challenging. Still, it's a cool puzzle to have in a collection.

If you do buy one of these, I recommend you look for the Cmetrick Too Hard model, pictured on the right at Jaap's Puzzle Page here.

Beginners can solve Cmetrick Too Hard exactly the same way as Cmetrick Too by just ignoring the center spots on the colored discs. You can tackle the center spots as a second challenge.

Yeah, I also have one and it's just as easy, if not easier than the pyraminx to solve. I would love to have the Cmetrick Too Hard but I haven't really seen any anywhere.

I also have one of those (too hard). And a DIY version called Cmetrick 2 build. (it's a 3x3 just like the too hard).

This was offered as a prototype version to Twisty Puzzle members some years ago:
