Hi all,

I'd like to share my collection of twisty puzzles with you. Please feel free to comment on which twisty puzzle I am supposed to get next in your opinion. I also have a couple of metal wire puzzles and some wooden type, which I did not photograph.

I never counted them before, but as I have to move to another city, I did. How many puzzles are photographed here?

Thanks for your interest!

Nice collection but... no face turning octahedron? (You have shape mods of it though...)

So, that would be my recommendation. It's an awesome little puzzle. :)

Nice collection :)

I suggest you get some of the more popular 3D printed puzzles next.
Judging by some of the more expensive puzzles in your collection it seems like you can afford it :D

Also comes in white, if you're into that sort of thing.

Many thanks, I will consider buying a twin set.

Unfortunately, I can't!

I'll be moving to another city as mentioned before and also want to make a proposal to my girl. So I may end up having little money within no time...But as you suggested, I really am looking for 3d-printed puzzles. TomZ, Erics, Claus', mostly all of Traiphum's Puzzles and many others more are great for collecting AND solving experience and I really like to have them all (who doesn't?) . Which one to start first?

The next puzzle I want to buy is the pillowed Hexaminx from Traiphum. I hope I can spare the money within a while...sigh...

If you are looking for a challenge I would recommend the Multidodecahedron by TomZ! :D
And I think I saw somewhere in here that Carl was offering some of his Bubbloid122 puzzles, tumbled and stickered and for a good price too.
I am looking to buy one myself after I get back from my vacation, assuming there are still some left!

EDIT: Oh, and this one looks really cool! :D

That is a stunning collection!! Have you solved them all?
How many of the Revomazes have you opened?

I would like quite a lot of those - but "she" would go mad if so many arrived quickly! :shock:

Unfortunately for me, the wooden and metal puzzles keep coming. Plus the steady production of mass produced twisties! All of this conspires to prevent me buying anything from Traiphum (lusting after a Megamorphinx, Ultramorphinx and Hexaminx!!)

Unfortunately, I never solved a couple of puzzles, for example I never managed to wrap my head around the camouflage cube. And I simply don't have time for some other custom puzzles like the 3x3x5. I admit, I really have to look up the solution for some puzzles as well. Last not least I think I'll never be able to solve a square-1.

I opened the blue and the bronze Revomaze so far. Maybe I'll continue solving them in a few months. I think I will need a break from puzzling s the new job I'm going to take is very challenging.

I'm not sure exactly which puzzle you are talking about, but the 2x2 + skewb is called the SuperZ, and has the face pattern of a helicopter cube.

I beg to differ. Under what authority do you make that claim? I know of others who have larger collections of puzzles, myself included. Unless, of course, you mean Twisty Puzzles only, in which case that claim is a bit more difficult to verify.

Konrad as moderator: Please, toukyinlove, be a bit careful with such claims! What proof can you offer? 350 seems a bit low, too, for the biggest puzzle collection in Canada!

It's big but almost certainly not the biggest in Canada :D .

The trouble with trying to have the largest collection is that there is always somebody with more time, more money, more space, and more dedication. It's better to have a collection you're proud of rather than have the biggest.
