I store my puzzles in shoe boxes. I wish I had a shelf.

I don't really have a designated area for my puzzles... They're basically just all over the house in random places. If I ever get a respectable sized collection I might build them a fancy shelf to live on.

Do you ever lose your puzzles if they are in random places? Sometimes I
loose my rubik's cubes. Once I left my 3x3 studio cube by the TV and it got
moved. That was my only cube besides a cheap knockoff cube and so no
cubeing with the 3x3 for a couple days. :( I found it later though.

I got a nice bookcase, some shelves, and a couple of racks from IKEA...! Regarding shoes, I would only store them into a shoe, if the shoe looked like the photo below:

No, i'm talking about the pyraminx in the bottom right...
It looks like a semi-turned prof. pyraminx.

(Edit: acualy on closer examination it looks like two pyraminxs. On first glance I thought it was a professors one. aww, for a minute i thought that the puzzle existed.)

I keep them in my desk drawer.

Always handy for when you're just sat on your desk you can get your cube out and mess about for a bit until you get bored.

Either on my desk, or in my cube case.

I get this question every once in a while as to where I keep my "small" collection of puzzles.

I have some property that is out in the country that is boarded by a rocky hill. At the base of the hill is a small cave that I had dug out and turned into a vault and underground bunker. Is is completly hidden from view and has a hidden entrance controlled by a puzzle related lock. I had a state of the art security system installed with tempurature controls, motion sensors, pressure pads, and wireless cameras. My whole collection is displayed on shelves inside a vault that protects from moisture, heat, and theft.
The rest of the bunker is complete with kitchen and living quarters with a large central area for gaming and puzzling.

:lol: :lol: Ok, maybe I should have put this under the post "If I had a Million Dollars" Sadly about 95% of my collection is in about 50 different boxes stored at 2 different locations. It is completely databased so I can easily find a puzzle within minutues. With small kids around, I don't leave them lying around in plain site except for regular cubes. I do keep most of the expensive customs and irreplacable rare originals in a fireproof locked cabinet. My desk is where you would find the majority of my puzzles that are out in the open.

At home, they're on shelves that are for them. But when my 3x3x3 goes travelling, it goes in its special case. That way it won't get crunched in my laptop bag or suitcase.

I like the box idea. I would like to try that some day because it also protetcs
the stickers.

Mostly cardboard boxes. Standard "bankers box" file boxes are pretty good because of the lid.

Here is a photo of my collection (almost updated, two weeks ago or so) where you could see how I display and store them. Note that there are a few other items all around my room, inside my closet, mainly repeated and spare ones.

Hopw you like it.

As you can see, and as maybe some of you know, those showcases were bought in the Ikea. They just came with 3 glass stands, so I bought material and managed to add a few more levels. It was not easy issue, but eventually I got it and of course, the work worths.

As you can see.......... I will soon have to get another one... they are fairly full now.... :):):)

Several extra cubes are guarded by two bears in my bedroom. They are terrible beasts, don't you ever dare and try to visit my bedroom. The two blue circles are special food for the bears :lol:

I am pretty sure many of will disregard all the dangers in trying to pass through the guards, just to get those puzzles!!! :P
(and yes... my color is green because of envy right now!!! grrr...)

That said, I also have a guard protecting my puzzles. He is not big, but has an IQ of 400. The only thing is that he is so lazy to move or talk, that he only uses brainwaves to do almost anything... ;)

Oh yes... he also likes to wear an Octo when he goes for swimming
(I know he is a seal-like creature and he is *supposed* to know how to swim, but he is lazy, remember?)

Picture HERE, but *don't* look into his eyes (even though this is a photo!)


:P

Plagerist!! :lol:

I store them the same as Rasta for my twistypuzzles. Besides the ones I keep in the bathroom for those long study moments.

I have the entire guest room taken over for my mechanical puzzles. I only have about 800 of those type puzzles.

I have most of my puzzles in a plastic box under my bed, and the guard to my puzzles are simply my lack of enthusiasm for cleaning, so my room looks like somebody have nuked it or something like it...

I also have one or more puzzles on me, usually at least, just for the occations when there is some spare time.

yeah i have a three draw plastic bin (for the smaller twisty puzzles - mostly mass produced ones), a two big draw plastic bin (for the big wooden puzzles), and my drawer from my cabinet (i put aside my clothes for my puzzles!!!) for the modded puzzles.

I also have a few stragglers around the apartment for quick play. And I always have at least one in my pocket to play with on the go - usually the 5x5x5, megaminx, or currently the 3x3x4 cuboid - i really want to get this solved down pact so i can work my way up to my 4x4x5!
