The Super Brain Spinner is here! I only know of a US-based bookstore that carries it- barnesandnoble.com There is also another site FRPgames.com that looks to carry it also but I'm not familar with that site. I've received mine and it's a very fun puzzle. :D

I picked one of these up at IPP. I've got to say, I'm not overly impressed. It's a great puzzle, but the knobs are too small. Even for my little fingers-I'm not sure how some of the 'less than delicate' gents would e able to work it. :lol:

Looks a lot like an easier version, a 'beginner's' version, if you will, of the Rubik's Shells:

Of course, the rotational bit in the middle probably makes it a bit harder... have you tried solving it yet? Is it easy or hard?

I received mine today. I have average size hands and have no problems with the knobs. They don't seem overly small to me. I had no problem scrambling and solving it. It can be a little tricky keeping both half lined up when you position it to move all 4 sections at once (one section rotated 90 degrees from the other). Even though there are detents to hold the halves in position they are light and it is easy to have the halves slip out of them.

I wanted to change some forms of rotation but as always, there are problems.
So, you love this SBS or no ? say yes or no.)))

Picked one up at Barnes and Nobles. Everyone who sees it thinks it is a baby's toy :lol: Pretty fun puzzle. I like it....but the only problem I have with it is that I usually have to try multiple times to line up the edges a few times or the spheres will fall into the next space and sometimes lock it up :/
