Andreas gave me the "inspiration" for this puzzle.

I played with it on GCD and made some offers to Andreas. But he wouldn't give it to me.

I built my own. Both are cast with Oomoo and Smooth300. The white one is stickered like Andreas Great Dodec with 12 colors. The black is stickered with 20 colors.

Resistance is futile. No puzzles shall evade Claus' collection!

Dave :)

P.S. Nice stickering (so much better than the standard Alexanders's Star version).
