On Sunday, July 22th, five brave puzzle collectors and builders met in Mainz at Götz Schwandners's home.
We had a lot of fun talking about new and old puzzles we brought with us. We plan to meet regularly between
the main events DCD and GCD. Hopefully the group will grow over the time:)

File comment: An interesting game with the goal to move the coloured pin to the according edge. To achieve this the fences have to be opened and the other pins must move out of the way.

File comment: Dodecadodecahedron Skewb made by Claus. Finally he sold it to me. Hope, he'll sign it at the DCD:) Cool Skewb mod - very confusing :)

It sounds like a great time, and nice to hear you mean to make it a regular occurrence. We used to do that now and then in Northern California but it has been far too long since our last.

Thanks for sharing the pictures,

Dave

Great event, great guys.

A perfect day with friends. I'll hope it will be held every year between the other great meetings.

I learned a lot about the IPP. Götz explained me the exchange challenge he will participate.

Frank thanks again for buying my DODO and doing the measurement for the museum.

Indeed.
There can't be enough meetings were I become convinced that I am not the only maniac.

I love Götz' display cabinets!

I would really love to have my collection on display like that but whenever I leave any puzzles (even beautiful wooden ones) out on display anywhere then within a minute or 2 they miraculously appear back in my study on my computer keyboard - it's almost magical how quickly it happens!

"She" won't let them leave my study! :( I've shown her the nice cabinets and she just looks at me with the lazer stare! The burning pain and smokey smell emanating from my forehead quickly makes me forget the idea! :shock:

Thanks! Also other puzzlers seem to like them, for example Hendrik has some and posted pictures in the forum some years ago. It's a nice contrast between wooden puzzles and the cabinets (so you don't get a wood overdose :roll: ) and also between cabinets and twisties.

But I can also understand that some, maybe most, people don't want to have rooms filled with puzzles for display. ;)

I see a few familiar puzzles and familiar faces there ;) With Claus nearby, you're sure to have an interesting meetup, too!

Strange! I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want a whole house filled with puzzles!!!

Unfortunately for me "SHE" would want/need an equal volume of shoes, handbags and :shock: (gulp) diamonds! :lol:
