Hi everyone, I've decided to offer a few more round-1s at a price of 180 USD for those seriously interested in owning one. The price is based on the highest auction bid (236.50 USD) and decreased slightly to make it more affordable but protect the buyer's investment.

I now have the ability to make two additional Round-1s (in either white or black) and would like to extend an offer to any forum member interested. The puzzle will come totally finished, cast in your choice of white (Smooth-On 300) or black (alumilite black), lubed slightly, numbered and signed by me. I will ship both domestic and international, and the price of shipping is included in the 180 USD base price.

The list is as follows(the top color is the color of the top stickers, i.e. those opposite the green ones):
#1: *name protected*, White puzzle, White top, built and shipped
#2: *name protected*, White puzzle, Black top, built and shipped
#3: *name protected*, ??? puzzle, ??? top, CANCELLED
#3: *name protected* white puzzle, nxnxn color scheme CUSTOM ORDERED, built and shipped
#4: *name protected* White puzzle, Black top, waiting
#5: *name protected* Black puzzle, white top, waiting (TRADE)
#6: Available
#7: Available

Puzzles will be claimed based on the time reserved and not by any other means (money on top of the puzzle price, etc) to ensure fairness if there is enough demand for the puzzle.

As an aside: The stickers to be used on these puzzles were made by the late Frank Schwartz (flambore) before his unfortunate diagnosis. This will not inflate the price of the puzzle at all but (to me, and presumably the rest of this forum) this is a very important detail about these puzzles.

All of the puzzles have been spoken for. The waiting list is now closed. Thanks to those who have placed themselves on the waiting list :)

Just a bump to let you guys know that there's another Round-1 available at a discounted price. Please read the large red text in the original post. The last Round-1 will be reserved for the first to contact me with DEFINITE interest.

These are way cool. I don't know how many other people have picked up on this, but wouldn't the non-shape shifting properties of the puzzle make it much harder? Since you can't make it into a cube you could run into tons of parities.

Well you wouldn't have the shape to help you as much, but you can actually still make it into a "cube." The cube shape is just 4 edges and 4 corners alternating on each face, and so you can do this here too. No additional parities exist.

^Yes, but it's also incredibly difficult to recognize what pieces you have to switch even if you're in a "cube" shape. I solved the first on maybe twice, and compared to a regular square-1, it's like pulling teeth. So yes while nothing changed on the puzzle in terms of combinations, the puzzle is much harder.

Just a bump in case someone missed it.

Also worthy to note: if you have a puzzle to trade, feel free to contact me and we can try to negotiate a deal. I've done so with one other member and am not closed off to going that route again. I just need to liquidate my casting supplies since I'm gone so much for school and i don't have time to work except for the summer.
