Hi guys,

Please allow me and David (Calzone) to organise this small, but helpful raffle.
All of the donations will go to a very important cause.
(sorry I cannot tell you the reason now, but you will all know soon!).

I will also personally take care of the postage for my items.

I am happy to include in the raffle:

1. Magic Octopus (one of the very last originals, sent from Australia).
2. Magic Smile (one of the very last originals, sent from Australia).
3. Cubedron (sent from Singapore).

I hope more puzzles from other builders may be added to this list.

David (Calzone), would you like to get the payments for this? (it would be easier)
If not, I am happy to do this separately.


Pantazis

Dr. BNPB,

Can you tell us where to send the money and how much you want for each raffle ticket. Might I suguest a minimum of $5 per ticket as they are truly amazing puzzles up for grabs. Added to that, this really is for a great cause!

Mrs Sparrow,

I will leave this to David to decide, because it would be more convenient if all payments go to one person.

I mean, if there is more than one person receiving payments, then some of the money will be gone in PayPal fees,
so it would be preferable that David receives everything.

:)

I'm not a builder, but I'll add a somewhat hard to find Turbo Mind Twister to the pile. If you all will take it that is. Shipping will be on me as well.

I think I'll be in for 2 tickets. Let us know when the price and recipient is agreed upon and I'll send my payments.

p.s. I just wanted to say how great it is to be a part of such an awesome community! :)

I hope your luck holds :wink: And I wish luck to all those who enter.

I was going to send pm's to all on the board, but going through the names on the first page, I realized that many members listed haven't been on the forum since 2004 :shock: Instead, I will write that if you want to know the purpose of this raffle, please send Dave or myself a pm. We will gladly tell you but respectfully request that you do not post the reason on this forum. It is ment to be a surprise! For those of you that I already pm'd thank you for your replies.

Good luck to everyone, and remember, this is for a good cause. So Go BUY THOSE TICKETS! :lol: :lol:

Ok…..here are the details for the raffle…

Each entry is $5 USD. There are ten (10) prizes up for grabs so far, so there will be ten (10) potentially different winners.

The current prizes are as follows (actual puzzle may not be pictured....colors, etc. may vary. I used what I could find online for some of them).
1. Magic Octopus (one of the very last originals, sent from Australia). (courtesy of Pantazis)
Image

2. Magic Smile (one of the very last originals, sent from Australia). (courtesy of Pantazis)
Image

3. Cubedron (standard) - (courtesy of MindStrat Puzzles)

4. Cubedron (Classic) - (courtesy of MindStrat Puzzles)
Image

5. Cybedron - (courtesy of MindStrat Puzzles)

Image

6. Turbo Mind Twister – (courtesy of Katsmom)
Image

7. A Reuleaux Mastermorphix - (courtesy of Tattooed)

8. A massage ball - (courtesy of Aleksey)

9. Elemental Neon DIY - (courtesy of David Litwin)

10. Japanese Triple Cube - (courtesy of Geert)

EDIT: Please don't send any more payments to my email address, but please do visit this auction link :D

LINK

Thank you, and be sure to include your TP ID in the message field when paying. This offer is now unlimited! The balance of the funds will go to a reputable foundation. You'll have to trust me to tell you what it is later.


You will be assigned your number(s) based on the order I receive the payments. Numbers will be posted here as we continue throughout this week.

On Saturday, April 25th at 12: noon EST, I will use the random sequence generator at http://www.random.org/sequences/ to determine the winners.

I will input the total number of entries and it does the rest.

The sequence generator spits out numbers in a column like this…..
11
67
74
22
121
54
20
118
62
30
103
69
114
119
16
15
25

The numbers, starting from the top, will determine the winner of each item in that order.

Thank you all and good luck!! :)

EDIT: If anyone has something that they would like to add as a prize, please PM or email me.

Also, there are members that contributed to this cause prior to this raffle being set up. A separate raffle will be set up for those members! I don't want to confuse or mess up this one.

This may increase to 150 depending on something else and because of what those whores at Paypal are doing to me. Why Tattooed .........Do you wanna buy out the raffle??? :D

I think 150 should be the goal.

:)

PS. David, please add both Cubedrons (Classic and Standard) and one Cybedron, instead of just one Cubedron.
I just contacted Siva and he is keen for this, especially as our company structure is such that
some earnings will always go for many similar good reasons in the future. ;)

I won't buy out the raffle, but when more details are made public, I'll probably throw in a RXM.

I realize its "not for profit" but a good cause is a good cause and it seemed odd to put a cap on it. I'm in the dark about it all so I was just curious.

Edit - RXM = Reuleaux Mastermorphix (sorry if that confused anyone)

I would suggest that everything over the 125 or 150 entries or so be donated. Just my 2 cents.

I think I'll buy 5 tickets. I think these raffles are a great idea. It allows poor people (like me) to have the chance to get amazing puzzles. :)

Edit: 25$ sent.

More added to this post above. So far we're getting a good response. Let's keep it going. :D

There are plenty of entries still available, and the odds you'll win something are pretty damn good! :D

I'm in for three tickets. And while I'm at it, I'll add in a Neon DIY kit to the raffle.

Hey, if I win my own puzzle, think of all the shipping I can save!

$5 for a chance at 10 (currently) different puzzles! This has to be the first raffle of it's kind @ TP!

This response is very very touching!

By the way David, the Magic Octopus and Magic Smile are from me, but
the Cubedron Classic, Cubedron Standard, and Cybedron are from the company,
so it should MindStrat Puzzles getting the credit for those, not me.

It was Siva and the rest of the Singapore team who encouraged me to add more items!
I also need to update the Cubedron/Cybedron photos, those are from the old batches and/or samples!!!
(the Octopus background for the red color octopus is yellow... sorry for all the wrong colors LOL)

:)


Pantazis


PS. WIll it be ok if I also take part to the raffle? There are some really good puzzles now!
(I promise if I win one of my puzzles, then the puzzle goes to the next number, not me! LOL)

Thanks for the clarification. I updated the post above with that info.

If you have new pics, send them over and I'll update them. I added a disclaimer for now. :D

I need to figure out a different way to accept these payments! Please don't send anymore until I figure this out. Paypal is looking to shut down my account...see below. I'll post something else within the next hour or so.

Sorry for the double post, but I needed to get this straightened out ASAP.

Please don't send any more payments to my email address, but please do visit this auction link :D

Why would you buy that? Everyone knows you can just right-click and hit "copy picture".

:lol: :lol:

Good idea on that auction, let's just hope eBay doesn't take it down.

Edit your post where it says to send the money to your paypal address. That will probably help sort out the situation.

Paypal is so ridiculous sometimes. Maybe they think that you're participating in a pyramid scheme with all of the smallish payments? Who knows...?

:x PAYPAL :x
