Roelofs polyhedra form a vast collection of polyhedra containing many interesting solids and including very irregular ones. The purpose of this paper is to consider two special subsets: polyhedra with the symmetry of the prism and polyhedra with just two different types of vertices. Beside the figures in the paper PowerPoint pictures, all made by Rinus Roelofs, will be presented.
