Here are the tips for buying puzzle and some information about puzzle mod .
Step 1: What Kind of Puzzle?
1.Have you checked in the internet ,and know what is the normal price?
2. Is the Price normal?Is it too expensive ,or too cheap?
3..Is it a Mod ( modification) from other puzzle? Think Twice.
3.If its a mod ,is it Special ?( ex. Changing shape , or a cross between two puzzle)
4.What is the Brand? Is the turn is good ?

And next check out the other steps to know more about this mods...
Step 2: The Cube
Step 3: 3x3x2 Cube, Fisher Cube,void Cube
And there is the fisher cube too( picture 4)-it's a mod from a 3x3 ,and uses same mechanism.It has a brother , the windmill cube.but there is a lengthened windmill cube (I called it Gamla cube) --(picture5 ).This cube is a windmill cube , but in a "X" pattern. You can mod your fisher cube like this too, but it won't be look so "nice"...
the void cube uses a different mechanism , but I don't prefer it.I just take the center caps of a 3x3 cube , and it's already a "void" cube .But sometimes you see an "Edge only void cube"--(pic 6).well it's worth ( unique) but you must think twice-this is a modified 3x3 void cube.the 3x3 corners was taken , and the edge is made wider
Step 4: Skewb
here is the data:
pic2: skewb diamond
pic3: Hexagonal skewb
pic4: star skewb
the star skewb is a cross between the cube and diamond skeb.
the hex skewb is a truncated skewb diamond
The skewb ultimate ia a dodecahedral puzzle , and has 12 faces. And.. the 3d skew AND polymorphinx is a cross between the cube skewb and skewb ultimate!
Step 5: The Turning-face Octahedron, Pyramid
The 3rd Picture is Pyraminx , and the 4th picture is tetraminx.Do you realize it? Tetraminx is just a pyraminx with no "corner" pieces.But it depend on what do you think about it.( and depends on the price too.
Pyraminx has a little brother , called Pyramorphinx.It shaped like a pyraminx , but only has 3 triangles / sides..The dino star ( pic number5) is made from 2 pyramorphinx.
