Michael,

this puzzle is made in Czech republic called mayby like Stupid cylinder. It is Czech patent. I attached some my pictures of the puzzle. Puzzle move without hole. You can move clear cylinder left or to the right and also to rotate around. At this movement at the same time turn over all segments only in one track around and so you can mix coloured segments .

The puzzle looks very nice.

Thanks for the pictures Milan. Is this a hard to find puzzle or is it fairly common where you live?

This puzzle is news, it comes only to distribution. I saw this puzzle first time before three days at our meeting of puzzle sellers and collectors.

The auction for this item has ended:

Fortunately I made the race :D
After Michael posted the pictures here I was afraid I had to spend much more money.

I got the puzzle today and made two new pictures.
As you can see the is puzzle a mere 7 cm long.

Can somebody please post a translation of the text on the back?

Andreas

Folks, can we place a collective order for this puzzle? I guess we could easily order 150-200 puzzles for the forum visitors.

Dodd, I just made a suggestion. There is an address and the phone/fax numbers on the cardboard the puzzle comes with, and I thought that it might be possible to order some for us. Now, there are people from Czech here, yet I have no idea if anyone of them would agree to help us to make this happen.
