I used to have a Siamese cube with 2 of each cube on it from 2x2x2 to 5x5x5, but that is no longer.

I've got the following puzzles:

-1 Chinese 1x1x1 (Torn from Egyptian Pyramid)
-1 Self-made 1x1x1 (Made of Lego, thanks to MeMyselfAndPi's suggestion)
-1 Rubik's 2x2x2 Ice
-1 Eastsheen 2x2x2
-1 Word Cube
-2.5 Rubik's 3x3x3 (The one on the stand is my good one)
-1.5 PuzzleProz DIY 3x3x3 (Types A and D, they both suck)
-1 Rubik's 4x4x4 (Being modified... when I get back to it someday (never))
-1 Eastsheen 4x4x4
-2 Rubik's 5x5x5
-1 Eastsheen 5x5x5 (Bought off someone else at the Denver Open)
-1 V-Cube 6 (Unstickered, to be tiled) (PiMod)
-1 V-Cube 7 (Tiled)
-1 Cube4You Square-One
-1 Chinese Skewb
-1 PuzzleProz Babylon Tower
-1 Chinese Megaminx (Tiles falling off)
-1 Rubik's Twist
-2 15-Puzzles (One is numbers, the other is a smiley)

-1 2x3 Rubik's Magic

2 other puzzles weren't there at the time.

So those are my current puzzles. My waiting list for new ones will be purchased in the following order:
-Tetrahedran
-New Design (Steryne's courtesy)
-Orb-It/The Orb
-Void Cube
-V-Cube 5
-Gigaminx
-Meffert's Megaminx
-The puzzle everyone wants but few afford: Teraminx. Here's hope that I win the lottery.


Well, thanks for taking the time to read this.

I like the idea of future purchases. I have one too. Cubedron's next on my list. I like your collection It's similar to mine :)

I would suggest bumping that V-cube 5 up the list a little. You won't be disappointed :)

Well, I don't need it quite yet, since I have 3 5x5x5s already. I need my first tetrahedran puzzle more, and I need to get an Orb-It before the prices skyrocket once more. The Void Cube is a neat puzzle, too. I just don't need a V-Cube 5, since I'm not really working for speed on the 5x5x5 quite yet.

Just make sure that when you order it you tell them not to lube it...mine came pre-lubed. They put WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much in as well. Enough to the point where when i disassembled it and attempted to remove the bumps from the corners that I actually had to unsticker, remove all of the lube, remove goo from where stickers were and then order new tiles...

Kinda disappointed me when I opened it and realized how much lube they used. Plus I like to work my puzzles in before lubing.

Bizarre. Mine came with no lube at all. In fact, other than the incredible corner-cutting qualities, it kinda sucked for speed-cubing. (Not to worry, after it's broken in, it's smoother and faster than anything I've seen).

Im pretty sure the extra lube was a mistake in the manufacturing process - I am quite sure they are not lubed by hand.

I am actually building it while using the computer, I have most of the pieces cut, I will start glueing it tonight. Your going to love it (it's a tad bit large though).

A bit large is kind of expected considering the size tetrahedrans are made. Well, if you finish before I get around to getting a tetraminx, maybe I'll switch things around on the list.

Well, I'm not a dictionary either so no offence was intended, I just wanted to increase the quality of the forums. I noticed the mistake in a couple of your posts so I thought I'd just correct you.

And so since you know exactly what I'm trying to say, why make such a big deal about it? What if I told you offenSe, not offence?

Offense or Offence (see American and British English spelling differences, -ce/-se)

Similar to the color / colour spelling difference (and many more, I know - we had to learn them in school)

Thank you for once again completely missing my point...

He didn't miss the point. Yours was a spelling error. He corrected it just as a tidbit to help you spell it right in the future is all.

What you pointed out was not a spelling error at all, but an acceptable alternative spelling.

The point is not that I don't make any spelling mistakes (English is not even my mother tongue for that matter). I generally don't mind spelling mistakes, it's just that I noticed you made several posts saying 'wow I'm going to get myself this new tetrahedran mod'. Not only that, but to me there is a difference between "typo" and spelling error (you obviously didn't know the right spelling while somebody else might just have made a typing mistake). You could also argue that 'tetrahedron' is more of an important word in this community than 'necessarily'. (God I hate that word!) We're discussing somewhat scientific/mathematical things here.

In retrorespect, my post may have been a bit rude but really all I wanted to do was help you.

BTW: "Alternative spelling"? I am supposed to use British English. Here's an equation for you: World > America.

Hijacking topics is great...
