Well done, it was a tortoise, 'K' awarded

Another puzzle from my collection

Brain Twist

This is a strange one, not only do you need to solve the exterior, but also the interior colours. You flip the colours inside out, and during the process, it looks like a star half way when you are turning the cube inside out. The ends also twist to scramble the puzzle.

Now that explains why you are spot on, looks like we will have to ban you from guessing to give our other members a chance ;)

I’d say a swan, perhaps.

The Blackjack puzzle looks odd! Difficult to solve?

Sorry, but the correct answer for the last photo was a Snail

The Blackjack puzzle is actually one of the more easier puzzles to solve.

Here is another version of the puzzle

Weenicons are cartoon like figurines of famous people, can you guess who the famous people pictured on the puzzle?

The official answer for the last pic was of Mickey Mouse

Today puzzle from my collection is

Pentacle

The centre has a 5 pointed star which you rotate, but you need to line all the lines up with the ones on the side and back to scramble the cube. Each time you want to change the axis that you want to turn the cube on, you need to rotate all the 5 pointed stars to line up in a different way. Not only do you need to solve the centre colours, but also the corners as well

Can you guess today's Rubik Snake Shape? The next few are going to be difficult as they are more of patterns and shapes, but you can have a guess anyway.

The last photo was either a Flower or Star

Today's puzzle cube is a brand new one that I got yesterday.

Coin Tetrahedron Pyramid

It works a bit like the last Pentacle cube puzzle, you rotate the centres and line them up to scramble, however I found this one very easy to solve

Can you guess today's Rubik Snake Shape? It's a difficult one which I don't think anyone will guess the exact name, but just for fun, you all can have a guess anyway to see what you all can come up with
