Hello PikAssO7,

Very nice mod, intriguing indeed.

Maybe you are aware of this, but you should speak with Hidetoshi before offering a "Trick Domino Twisted" for sale. He's been making them for a while, see his 2005 post and his 2006 Puzzle Design Competition entry.

Peace,

Skarabajo.

Off-topic: :shock: Bump cubes used to be $320! I knew that they were custom and expensive but now you can get them for a tenth of the price! :D

On-topic: Very nice mod, it looks great. :D

Hmm, Yes, I priced it to $320, because the cube's material is really expensive.
There is no profit, the price is almost actual expense.
Only "silicon molds", I need to make 26 shapes, and the cost is over $650.

Well, I feel depression now, is my price so expensive ?
Those "handiwork" custom made puzzles are really expensive to make.

I am still *very* happy with my handmade Bump Cube and I have not regretted for one second the price I paid!

I was not suggesting that they were overpriced, I was just comparing that with the mass-produced price. Sorry if I upset you, I wasn't trying to say that they were too expensive. ($320 is a lot when you are 15 :lol:)

Btw, my Mirror Blocks is one of my favourite puzzles. :wink:

I had three questions for you, then I rejected your request to sell it.

1) Why did you use my original name without my permission when you asked me to want to sell it ?
You asked me "May I sell my Trick Domino Twisted ?", but
"Trick Domino" is my puzzles' name. If you want to sell it,
perhaps you need to name another name for your puzzle,
not to confuse your made puzzle and my Trick Dominoes.
Why did you use "Trick" for your puzzle ?
My "Trick" means "looks like 2x2 cube from side, but
correctly this puzzle is 3x3x2."

2)You didn't answer for my question, you want to sell it for personally or mass-producing ?
I replied for you, "If you sell it for your friend, I don't mind.
But if you want to sell it publicly, I can't accept."
Latter reason is same of 1), your made puzzle is not my
made Trick Domino.

3)Why did you make it, for yourself or to sell it ?
If former, you don't need to sell it, or if you ordered from
your friends, it's 2)'s former reason, you can sell it for your
friends.
But if latter, your action is same of KO makers, the flow is
following,
"You found my Trick Domino, and you made it to want to
sell it, without consult me."
Only the difference is, you asked me the permission to
sell it, after you made it...

Before Mr.Fisher said, "Should make newly cubes rather than make same cubes."
I think so, then I rejected your selling offer.

1. I didn't know that I have to ask for the name... at first I wouldn't sell it but then I had a few good comments and thought that people could be interested

2. My English isn't perfect... I thought you want to mass produce it

3. I only want to sell puzzles that I can buy new cubes to mod and sorry that I haven't asked before I made it


Sorry for my English

1. If so, and if you want to make those anyones' puzzles in future, I recommend for you to consult with the builders at first, before you made them.
If you asked me before you made it, I'll recommend to name another name for your puzzle, and I could accept.

2. Yes, you asked me only "may I sell it ?", then I couldn't decide you want to sell only one or want to mass-produce.
If you want to sell one (for example at e-Bay), or if you asked me "may I sell this one at e-Bay ?", I could decide easily. ;)

3. This is same of 1., if so, I recommended to change the name to sell your one.
Perhaps you know the Chinese / Hong Kong KO problems, I want to accept only I checked items to use my puzzles' name.

Then, if you can accept to change your puzzle's name (not to use my "Trick Domino" name), please sell it for yourself.
Well...for example, "confusing 3x3x2" or any other name.
(Sorry, I don't have naming senses...)
"Trick Domino" name is made not only by me but also with my friends, then I don't want to use it easily...
I wish you accept my opinion...
