The orange and purple balls from your post number 79 could double up as a Snooker Plus set, K2K. I'm sure you are probably familiar with the game already, sir, but this was a game invented by Joe Davis in 1959 as a variation to snooker. The two balls were added to the table as extra colours and are worth eight and ten points respectively.
Good afternoon, Dave.
I do indeed have an interest in Rubik's Cube. Genius is a word bandied about far too casually these days, but I consider Erno Rubik to be the genuine article and his invention the greatest toy of the twentieth century.
I received a cube on my tenth birthday and it took me six to eight months to master. I'm not one of those savants who can complete it in ten seconds, alas, but have managed under a minute once or twice with luck.
Many thanks for your interest.
I'm quite selective in my collecting, favouring the old style number font and logos in the usual spot.
Despite being a massive Pacman fan these balls from Australia don't really float my boat, they're a bit too amateurish in their design in my view. I'd much prefer a small Pacman or ghost logo as a substitute for the numbers.
