This afternoon I met with Uwe again to discuss puzzles and sticker colors-you will all be glad to know that PINK will not be going on the next release, there is just too much black/white on the puzzle and sadly, my pink fades away.

I am holding 4 prototypes for up and coming puzzles, and sadly can't show you pictures of any of them. :lol: :lol:

One looks like birds or kites or airplanes depending on your imagination.

One looks like the covers of the bomb shelters that dot HK and that I saw throughout West Germany when I was growing up.

One looks like a foot rest.

One looks like a cast i wore when I broke my knee.

And none of these descriptions are any good. I just love being a tease! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You are sure to enjoy them all. Keep your eyes pealed for the newsletters they are coming soon to a website near you................

hmm birds nest? well, if you turn one of them sideways and then turn another 3/4 a turn and put them next to each other with the third one twisted half way round, It might look like a birds nest :lol: :lol: :lol:

no, i didn't give a hint-I said if you twist them and put them together they may look like a birds nest if you use your imagination.
:lol: I have a good imagination! I can see a birds nest with lots of puzzles I have.

I can also see boulders and trees-and I even have a rainbow on my shelf.

Wow! Talk about thread jacking!
Send another email. I have already told you I forwarded the pm's and names of those I have to Uwe for his attention.

Contrary to popular belief, I do NOT work for Meffert's. Come on guys-if you have a problem with a company, you go to the company-you don't go to a friend and hope they will sort it for you. I help when I can, I give him feedback, but I'm NOT PAID for any of this. I am way too busy worrying about my day job (that I do get paid for) and my studies to really have time to deal with problems you have with a company I don't work for :lol: :lol: :lol: (unless of course you count puzzle currency and the joy of getting to see and play with new items first!)

Oh oh oh, but I do get to pick out the stickers! And one of my other picks still has PINK!!! (and sadly that awful green-it honestly was a bad connection :lol: :lol: )

Seriously though, I help when I can, but I can't make decisions for him-nor can I order a reshipment of your puzzles. Put my name on your email to let him know you are one of the people I spoke to him about. That will help some.

Problem is for me - and probably for many others - that sending email to this company is a one way road. This kind of communication is frustrating.
I could write in German, though. Do think that could help? :D

Haha the only reason I said bird's nest is because that's what a hexaminx face looks like to me.

Sigh...I can only dream of a mass production... :lol:
