The Mark I will not be made anymore ....

The next batch of orange puzzles are exactly the same as the first batch. There aren't two different versions. :?

You know the strange part of this whole revo thing for me is that I don't really care if I solve them or not..... (Although I will be trying my damnedest to do so).

It sounds strange I know .... but I just think the whole execution of the design and implementation is superb.

I will list the reasons I like Revos so much. (in no particular order)

1. You can't cheat with them. ie: You can't break into them, xray them or reverse engineer them. (I have tried)

2. Manufacturing quality is better than anything I have ever seen in a puzzle period.

3. They go from easy to hard to impossible.

4. <Retracted>

5. They are a a piece of engineering art. And look GREAT.

6. For what you get price wise they are a firkin bargain. (You go out and get some quotes on getting a couple of thousand of these made and come back to me)

7. They are good for holding down papers on my desk.

8. They not bad rolling pins (wonton pastry only unfortunately ... think you could make them longer Chris ?)

9. Ahhh... who cares about 9... you all know why you love them.

I know there are certain parts that "rearrange themselves" .. but I don't classify that as <something or other> ...etc.

That was the point I was trying to make ... am I wrong ?
If so I will retract point 4.

Hehe! Nothing like that. No force is needed to solve any of the Revos, apart from a light tap when removing the core from the sleeve.

The way I understood the dynamic one's worked that was pieces "slid" around.
Am I still wrong ?
