Some time ago I posted a poll regarding Rubik's Brain:
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=13780&start=0

So, in the past couple of weeks I have been involved in way too many activities,
but one of them was yet another neat correspondence with Jay Horowitz (the guy
who has the American Classic Toys company, which includes the rights for Ideal).

He mentioned that he has now actually licensed both Rubik's Brain and Rubik's Race
(they are classic games, not puzzles), and will probably be mass produced again.

Meanwhile, I am also trying to convince him to bring back the Alexander's Star
(and one that must turn well too!), as well as other twisty puzzles.

The email correspondence will be soon followed by some lunches and dinners.
Let us see how this goes!

I can't say I'm too excited about those Rubik's games.

But a new (hopefully, usable this time around :D ) Alexander's Star sounds great! Keep us updated.

Last time he was asking me many questions about it, so I am sure he is seriously
thinking of that possibility. He was in fact, carrying with him one original which looked
flawless!

Oh I so wished too! But it is not. I would so much love to produce
a variant of this puzzle through MindStrat Puzzles (always with the
permission of the inventor - who for some reason cannot be found!).

Who knows, someone else may have the same dream with me.
