Hey guys, I have a couple of really cool puzzle designs that are printable. And I'm thinking of opening an online shop to sell just the designs. What price would be reasonable for a game/art design? And would you ever Buy a design? And if so, what price would you pay for a relatively simple design? What would you be willing to pay for an intricate design? I know thingiverse is awesome, and open source is the way to go. Though currently I'm a poor college student who's playing around with some 3d designs Trying to see if I can earn some extra money here and there. Thanks your help guys, -Tom

Hey guys, so I've been looking around at some of these cool wooden puzzle boxes on instructables and being a member of the k'nex community I immediately thought that it would be really cool if a knex puzzle box could be made. So I present this challenge, try to make a puzzle box out of knex that requires some kind of trick to open (see this link to get an idea of what I'm talking about). Try to make the box as small as possible but size doesn't really matter. Good luck and I will be trying to make one too so I will post my progress as updates to this thread. Thanks.

Most puzzles on instructables that I've found have been common 3x3x3's, and maybe a magnetic 2x2x2 :):) (courtesy of burzvingion). Does anybody know that there are like... BILLIONS of other types of twisty puzzles? I'll upload some pics of examples. any questions of what they are and I'll answer them.

What are your thoughts about puzzle boxes? Do you like them, what do you think is important in one, the looks, the mechanism, the amount of moves, innovative tricks and moves, the type of wood, the size, etc. What are your general thoughts about them, what do know about the inside of them (how there build, etc)??? What is a puzzle box A puzzle box is a box that requires certain moves/tricks to open it, you could say it's somewhat like a safe. Normally these moves a very hard to see and even harder to know. These things are like the improved version of a secret compartment. In my opinion a puzzle box should at least have 8 moves. Some puzzle boxes have secret compartments. I think Puzzle boxes a awesome and I prefer High number moves boxes with innovative tricks. That's why I'm making a guide about making them, click here to see my guide. But Now I wanna know what you think about, so please tell me everything

Here the puzzle:[img]http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/6384/newyearpuzzlecj7.gif[/img]Questions: Imagine that you have the layouts of 4 coloured cubes(ABOVE), named A, B, C and D. When the cubes are placed in (alphabetical) order in a straight line, and it is viewed from any horizontal or vertical position (front, back, top, bottom, left, right), there are always four different colours seen.Given that when I pick a corner of A, the 3 sides connected to it read "653", find the same orientation of B, C and D as 1 string of numbers. For example, "152421563".

KenKen is a new kind of logic puzzle from Japan by Tetsuya Miyamoto, who thought people were being failed by conventional methods of teaching. This is set to be the next sudoku The instructions are simple. These are for the puzzle in the second picture. All digits from 1 to 4 must be used in every row and column (no diagonals). The thick lined box has the target number for the values to reach in the thick box - one digit for a normal box. the symbol next to the value required is the only mathematical function you can use. Thick boxes that take up one normal box and have a a value - well, that value goes in that box. rules may differ slightly answers in picture 3

I want to make a working puzzle lock with a little dragon claw key like for some of those doors in Skyrim to be placed on a box...ideally the door would either go down like in the game or simple open out like one of those little tin safe banks I had as a kid :-) Any idea how I'd go about making one of these? The simpler the better (even nicer if I can make the parts cheap or get them at a good cost, lol) If you haven't yet tried Skyrim and thus have no idea what I'm talking about, if you go to youtube and type "golden claw puzzle" in their search it shows the "door lock" in action. Thanks in advance!
