Instructions

Simiar idea to this thread, but focused on cube ratings. For each puzzle you own, rate according to the following out of 10.

The plan is to collect all the data together, to get an average score for each puzzle. If there's enough information it will give us some nice objective info to compare each cube...

This information is now being used for puzzle ratings on the Wiki. Add here if you want a puzzle rated on the Wiki.

Puzzle Weights

I was going to put weight in the survey, but there's not really much point since its basically a fact, not an opinion. Here are the weights of all my puzzles. If you have other puzzles (and a set of scales) let me know the weight .. this info will eventually be added to the wiki
