Hi Sandy,

Here is a new image for your 3x3x3 picture cube database (I hope the quality is good enough). The puzzle is called Quble and was manufactured by Geospace.

Unfortunately I don't have a Quble myself, so all I know is that it was shipped with a timer and a booklet with instructions for a variety of word games. The number shown by the consonant letters are used for scoring the words.

As soon as I've got the pictures of all faces you will find a 3D version of this puzzle here:

Would it be a breach of any copyrights for someone like cubesmith to sell 'replacement' stickers? Or do you know where I can get one in the UK (apart from maybe on ebay).

@ aphid_greene

This cube seems to be very rare and there are very few sites with informations about it. I recently found an online shop in Australia:

http://www.puzzlesdownunder.com.au/en-us/dept_143.html#item_1524

... and as always this cube is out of stock :cry:

The name 'Quble' is trademarked. I think Cubesmith would have copyright problems when selling replacement stickers. But I'm sure it's ok if you print replacement stickers for yourself.

Cool, I just received an email with the complete description of all faces! :D

The original design was created 1999 by Geospace. The Quble was distributed in UK and Western Europe by Imperial Games.

My virtual version is finally complete:

Enjoy!


@ aphid_greene

Now you can print your own Quble stickers:

Hi Georges,

I recently added some new cubes and had to reorganize these pages.

You can find the sticker images for the Quble here:
512 x 512 px
1024 x 1024 px

BTW most of the virtual cubes feature download links for sticker images in up to 3 different resolutions (512 x 512, 1024 x 1024 and 2048 x 2048 px).


Edit: Links updated. Sep 27, 2007
