Italicized puzzles are puzzles with difficulties recording information. If yours is italicized, I've PMed you the problem.

It is now time to vote for you favorite 2 puzzles of this month! As usual you are not allowed to vote for the same user twice

377- July 24- Oskar's Twisty Tree - this one still blows me away, I'm surprised it hasn't had more votes.
378- July 25- PuzzleMaster6262's and Rentlix's Fully-Functional Siamese 2x2x2 "The Creature" ... pending a better model & video (which we're all *still* waiting for), and because you take the effort to compile this great list once a month (thanks!)

I apologize... I've just glued the magnets in the wrong orientation AGAIN so they keep repelling.

I can't believe I forgot to vote for myself.

Rentlix/Andreas - It's spelled Disdyakis Triacontahedron. (I know, the name is a bit long, so it is kind of hard to spell. :lol:)

368- July 17- Apollo's 3x3x7 Mastermorphix (I love Kyler's work, he deserves the credit. It is also a great puzzle :wink: )
And
377- July 24- Oskar's Twisty Tree(any piece of the same order can change places!)


This is just too hard to decide. I loved the Compy Skewb and all Oskar's other puzzles, and hate not understanding Pantazis' puzzles, because if I did, they would probably be at the top of my list :P

You aren't allowed to vote for the same user twice. You can pick one from Door, but not both.

I am resurrecting this thread to remind you to vote for your favorite 2 puzzles of this month. The voting turnout hasn't reach a high enough point to determine a distinct pair of winners. If you've voted already, bother other members to come here as well. The more votes, the more fun this process gets.

Double-posting to remind you guys to vote and to get other people to vote. This month's vote turn-out isn't very high.

Two votes are just too few... I would suggest to increase them to five (or even ten!)
like they do at the IPP. The calculation will not be that complex anyway,
because most of the hard work is done when compiling the list (thanks Rentlix!)

From the month of July, I would surely be voting for some Graphidrons,
but then, I want to encourage/thank/promote (choose which one applies to you)
some puzzle builders in here. So here we go... *rolling drums*:

1. 386 - kloopstomp's Grand Master Magic (yes, it is more tedious than a novelty,
but it did inspire some people, which is the main aim, isn't it? ;) )
2. 378 - PuzzleMaster6262's and Rentlix's Fully-Functional Siamese 2x2x2 "The Creature"
(I was waiting for someone to do this for a very long time!)

And ten Honorable Mentions from me:

1. Door's Floppy Prism,
2. Helicopter Disdyakis Triacontahedron
3. Oskar's Illegal Cube
4. Kuhrik's Black Lolo's Octahedron,
5. Tony Fisher's Gear Change,
6. RubixFreakGreg's Mini Babyface 2x2x2,
7. gingervergo's Child's Play,
8. Apollo's Anemoi's Tetrahedron,
9. Kevinnguyen's Kevin's Diamond,
10. traiphum's ReuleauxMinx


There are more (Compy Skewb etc), but as I said, please give us more options,
I am sure it will be easier for the voters and more "balancing" for the whole procedure!

:)

Sorry that I am fashionably late,

I am proud to announce that TomZ's Curvy Copter II one last month's puzzle of the Month!

I would like to clarify this, A user can only win one month, that way we get 12 months and 1 year. (although, December might flop as the over all votes will be happening at the same time).

I vote for the FF siamese 2x2x2 and the brick which brings us to

FF Siamese 2x2: 7
Compy Skewb: 4
Illegal cube: 4
Grand Master Magic: 3
Gear Change: 3
3x3x7 MM: 3
Twisty Tree: 2
Helicopter Disdyakis Triacontahedron: 2
and a bunch of others with 1 or less
