;) Serbian puzzles are the best! :)

background information
Invented in the year of 2003 in little Yugoslavia by Зоран
«Лишо» Лишанчић (Zoran «Lišo» Lišančić), this extremely
rare puzzle was patented in 2004 and manufactured in very
limited quantities. Years ago, Lišo's puzzle manufacturing
family business was closed. Zoran «Lišo» Lišančić moved
on to doing different things; nowadays, «Leeshos» are not
manufactured and most-probably never will be again. This
beautiful puzzle is extremely rare and virtually unknown.

As you may know, the only specimen of 4×8+8 sent outside
of Serbia can be admired at the remarkable Puzzle Museum;
congratulations and greetings to Hendrik Haak, mega legend!
http://puzzle-shop.de/leesho.html ;) – looking nice.

According to plan, I shall sell only one more specimen to an
enthusiast. And I shall keep the remaining two for myself, that
is the plan. That's all there is. But if, let's say, someone makes
me an offer that I cannot refuse, the plan might be changed.
Unfortunately, those are all the 4×8+8 puzzles I got. The little
toystore where I found them years ago sold all they had.

The 4×8+8 a.k.a. M 488 offered in this auction was made in
2004 and, unlike the specimen now part of Hendrik's Puzzle
Museum, it comes in its original, never-opened package! 8-)
The packaging is nothing fancy; the label shows the modell
number, the official patent number (Pat.SZIS P-0977/04) etc.
It was made in Yugoslavia, it is extremely rare, extremely
beautiful. And it is very expensive. ;)

bidding
You can place your bid(s) by sending me an e-mail to
<3.3@ru.ru>. 1 € ≈ 40 руб. (source: http://cbr.ru)

end of auction
This auction ends on the 31st day of May, 2011*.

buy it now
* There is an undisclosed "buy it now" price. If your bid is more
than the b.i.n. price, you will be contacted and this auction may
end sooner than mentioned above.

shipping cost
The cost of shipping by registered airmail is included in your bid
amount. If you want express mail service (EMS), the additional
cost is +25,00 €.

shipping restrictions
This extremely rare Serbian puzzle is not shipped to the U.S.A. ...

payment methods

;) Всё ясно?! 8-)

Please. Go. That's all we ask of you.

I notice you don't have PayPal as a selling option. Is that because you know that if you used PayPal we would get our money back. Seriously, stop trying to spam the forum with these utterly crap adverts for imaginery puzzles. Get lost and do something more productive with your time.

If your puzzle really exists then you should come up with a better way of offering it for sale because i hope no-one is stupid enough to bid blindly for it as you want at the moment.

Why is the "buy it now" undisclosed? If there is an amount you are willing to accept then why not just tell people?

DODGY, VERY DODGY!......(tell you what, you 'ave an apple......(anyone get the reference? :D )

How about if you ask Hendrik is he can write his own experience for himself.

It's really not hard to edit quotes at all.

The most pertinent question remains unanswered:

Why is the "buy it now" undisclosed? If there is an amount you are willing to accept then why not just tell people?

Also whether this puzzle exists or not your rudeness on here (which has now been edited or deleted by who i don't know) has ensured that i for one will not have any dealings with you.

If this deal is truly "dubious," then why do you advertise it as such and expect people to buy it?

We are not all fish in a giant pool waiting to bite your hook. Try a different bait next time.

The weird thing is that this puzzle is in fact in Hendrik's puzzle museum.

If the deal is real though i don't know why:

1) this guy has to be such an ****** to other people (at least twice today his posts have been edited/modified to remove the garbage he is saying)

2) why he has come up with the dodgiest way of selling them i've ever heard.

I'm not suggesting for a second that i think anyone should bid, i'm just wondering where the puzzle in Hendrik's museum came from?

Could you please provide us with a picture of the puzzles which aren't from Hendrik's site? Your images in the first post are the same as the ones you showed later but cropped to avoid showing the Puzzle Shop's logo.

After seeing the return of this gentleman, I contacted Hendrik. (I hope you don't mind, but in the interests of fairness to all, I feel the need to post this) He did indeed purchase the puzzle in question. I am glad the puzzle sale went through with out a hitch. However, that does not stop me from warning others to be wary. Remember, there is no recourse with the payment types offered here. In addition to that, I am leary of the wording "very expensive" previously edited versions of this discussed "rich (insert nationality here)" Buyer beware.

I am putting down a very strong warning here. I will NOT tolerate any more monkey business from this thread.

Banning will take place if constant editing is needed, and that isn't just for the gentleman from Serbia. It is for any that require me to stop my (very sexy) analysis to edit posts. I am not in the mood to have to do major editing right now, and the ban stick will be wielded without remorse.

Do be careful all.
