Puzzles of the Twisty Variety
« on: January 28, 2012, 12:30:40 am »
I know some of you are also into the Rubik's Cube and stuff.  Do any of you have a collection?  I have a growing one.  I recently got more serious about collecting a few weeks back when I actually got some money in my hands.

3 - 4x4x4s Two Rubik's and one eastsheen
2 - 5x5x5s Both eastsheen
1 - 6x6x6 YJ it is in the mail
1 - 7x7x7 YJ it is in the mail
1 - fisher cube
1 - square-1/cube 21
1 - super square-1
1 - 2x3x3
1 - 3x3x4
1 - Rubik's Snake/Twist
1 - Rubik's Revolution Titanium Ed
1 - Rubik's World
1 - Gear Cube
1 - Megaminx
2 - Void Cubes
1 - Rubik's Magic

Wow, nice collection. Yeah, when I got my rubiks cube back in 2009, I couldn't put it down. I have (had):
-3 3x3's - 2 Rubiks 1 diansheng (I lost it :(
-1 4x4 - Some asian brand -.-
-1 5x5 Rubiks
-A pyraminx
-A megaminx
-A square one
-A Skewb
-2 keychain cubes - 1 rubiks 1 from the SC Governers school
-Rubiks slide

Yeah its not very big, but at the time I was really interested in cubing, I had little to no money so, it was good enough for me. :)

Nice.  I hope the next time I order (from cubedepotusa.com amazing prices and it is US-based.  he is a little slow at shipping, it has been 4 days since the order should have shipped, but it didn't :|) I hope to get a Pyraminx and maybe a Skewb.

I never figured out how to solve one, so I guess my collection is limited to cheap and broken 3x3x3 cubes. Oh, also a Rubik's Revolution, I think it doesn't count as a Rubik's Cube.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

No :P It doesn't.

So my main is a Alpha Type-F, I don't know the revision of it...  But I'm pretty sure I want a Alpha VI next.  It looks nice.  I hope it serves me as well as this one does...

I have a few, but I don't remember how to completely solve some of them :P
In the order of how often I actually use them:
 - Megaminx
 - 4*4 cube
 - Slide
 - 5*5 cube
 - 3*3 cube
 - "Magic" (woot it's a fishline?)
 - 360

I think I have a few of the Revolutions too, but idk where they ended up.

I have two 3x3x3s, a 2x2x2, a rubiks 360, 3 rubiks twists (24 links, 36 links, and 48 links), a 3x3x3 mirror cube, a 4x4x4, a broken 5x5x5, and a V-Cube 7 that I never learned how to solve.  Oh, and the rubiks cube app on my iPod that has 2x2x2 through 7x7x7, I think.

EDIT:  I also taught myself how to solve the pyraminx in my math teacher's room, but I don't actually own it.

Update on my collection....
Canceled the V-Cube order.  The company is dickish.
I have a QJ Pyraminx now as well as two mirror blocks.
ShengShou 4x4 vIII and ShengShou 5x5
Professor Pyraminx (5 layered pyraminx)
2 ShengShou 6x6 in the mail (one black and used, the other White and new)
I modified a 3x3, so down to 13, but I ordered another 3.  A Mini Alpha, YJ 100mm Foot Cube, and an Alpha CC
Mozhi 2x2x1

I might have gotten more, but I don't remember exactly what I order lol.
