If anyone notices anything missing, or any mistakes, please PM me!

I decided to add pictures, so it's easier to remember what you are voting for. I'm including a poll- should I continue to include pictures, or does it take too long to load? I could attach a word document with pictures each month as well, and just post a list.

May the voting begin! The voting rules are up to Mindstormscreator, so I'll let him post the rules :lol:

I can't seem to attach the spreadsheet, so I'll figure that out when I get back. All the information you really need is included here, though.

You missed the Compound Cubes!

I love the idea of having a picture with each puzzle. It makes it easier to remember what the puzzles were, making voting easier.

LOL nice!

I agree with all, the illustration becomes better and better!
Keep it up! :D

By the way, do new non-twisty puzzles count as new puzzles?

I think non-twisty puzzles should count, but I always forget to check that subforum!
Please post any, and I'll fix them when I get back!

Having the pictures is definitely useful, sometimes when looking at the names you can forget what the puzzle is and good puzzles may miss out on votes. :D

I think these pictures are fantastic and make it all seem much more organized (I don't know why), I like it! The loading time is a problem, but patience is a virtue *sigh*

I love the pictures! Very nice, I didn't see some of those puzzles, but now I have seen them all!

Thanks, I know it must have been a lot of work!

PS you forgot my mental block :D

Having more time on your hands definitely makes adding pictures easier. I seriously considered doing it but the number of puzzles per month kept getting higher. It's nice to see a change, for sure. Puzzle of the Month voting rules for later. Also the month isn't over, and it's nice to have all the puzzles listed before voting begins, which is nice to see you're doing here contrary to what I originally did.

Good job with this. Maybe the Excel spreadsheet I only got a few months into before I gave up can actually work out this year.

These are my votes :)

Gold: Pirsquared’s Celtic Cube
This truly is the coolest cube of the month, fantastic to see and (I imagine) terribly hard to solve :lol:
I simply love it!

Silver: TomZ’s Dino 3x3x3 Cube V2
It's a long time that I expected this mod, and finally someone built it! :D

Bronze: Iaroslavski’s Mixup Cube
Also if this is a copy of the old Makarov Cube, I absolutely love this mod and its concept!

Pictures are a great idea. But could you create new smaller pics next time? There's almost 25 MB of pics on this page and it took me 2 minutes to load them all.


Here's my votes
Gold: Jan 19- Sharon & Muffet’s Copterminx (Desing- 3D printed)
Silver: Jan 5- Gingervergo’s Unbandaged Helicopter + 2x2x2 (Designed and printed)
Bronze: Jan 17- Timur’s Constellation Six (Design- 3D printed)

Honorable mentions I wish I could vote for:
Jan 9- Oskar’s Gear Skewb (Designed and 3D printed)
TomZ’s Dino 3x3x3 Cube V2
Pirsquared's Compound cubes!

*EDIT* I can't believe I forgot the Constelation 6. Updated list.

After careful thinking and a few strokes (because of brain overload to choose
the best three among so many brilliant puzzles), here is my verdict:


Gold: 3- Jan 5- Gingervergo’s Unbandaged Helicopter + 2x2x2 (Designed and printed)
Silver: 17- Jan 14- Pirsquared’s Celticube (Designed- 3D printed)
Bronze: 1 - Jan 1- Oskar's Pink Gears (Sticker mod)

These time I cannot explain the reasons, you don't want me to end up at intensive care, do you???

I'm back, and everything is fixed! I'm going to try to attach the spreadsheet now...
I can't believe I forgot the Compound Cubes... I think I was too much in awe to remember to add it when I saw it :lol:

Edit: Okay, I can't attach Excel Documents... what formats will work? How do I get this spreadsheet up?

I've had success with normal xls multiple times in the past. I believe it's a different issue.

The error that it's giving me is that xls files can't be attached.
Also, I just fixed a few more mistakes!
