"Ben's Roobik Booklet is a must-buy for anyone who is even remotely interested in magic or mentalism using the Cube. New effects that make sense and new methods that are designed for real world performance. Great work!" -Mark Elsdon
SYMETRO-CUBE: Two un-gimmicked Rubik’s cubes are shown. 1 is handed to the spectator the other is handed to the mentalist. They each take the cubes behind their backs to mix them up.
They are brought forward and each examines the others so there can be no cheating. On looking for similarities between the colours it is discovered that somehow the Rubik’s cubes completely!
Match up on all sides. Sleeves are rolled up throughout! Leaves Em speechless! A 1 in 43,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance!
MEMORISED CUBE: You demonstrate your uncanny ability to memorise the order of a mixed cube. You can then name the order of colours on any or all sides of the cube. A perfect precursor to Rubik Remembered!
INFLUBIK: A 4 person version of the „which hand‟ game but „which person instead. They are given a cube and told to mix it up and pass it from person to person under the table.
Not only do you show that you have predicted which person will end up with the cube when they choose to stop passing it around but you have predicted the exact configuration of the mixed up cube!
SPECOPSYCUBE: Simply put a spectator perfectly predicts the configuration of one side of a cube that has been mixed up by another spectator!
PSYCUBONUMBER: You perfectly predict the 9 digit configuration on one side of a Sudoku cube!
THINK OF A COLOUR: Ask one spectator to think of a colour and another to throw a solved cube into the air. And they have thought of the colour that lands on top. About a 90% hit rate!
RUBIK’S CHAIR TEST-EROONIE: A baffling performance where you beat impossible odds, influence a lot of choices and with an ending that no-one sees coming!

'When I first saw Ben Cardall's The Roobik Booklet, I was instantly intrigued. I knew from those years of frustration that the Rubik's cube is already magic to most people, and I couldn't wait to see how he would employ its time-honored reputation for impossibility to his advantage. Let me just quickly say that he does. Seven times.
Ben puts forth effects that span the gamut of improbable to inexplicable in his work, the whole while relying on the fact that most people are hopeless when it comes to thinking about the inner workings of the device.
He gives great tips for both those with a working knowledge of the cube as well as for first-time "cubers" (coined!).
He does so with great love of the craft and a delightful sense of humor. It is easy to tell from his writing that he is a passionate performer and the text has also been admirably polished.
Given the price, and number of routines, if you are at all interested in the Rubik's Cube and the undeniable level of authenticity it lends any effect, you would be well served to check out Ben's work.'

After purchasing Stephen Brundages Cube3 I have scoured the Internet and penguin magic looking for any and all tips/tricks and trivia for cube magic...
When I came across this booklet on penguin I was ECSTATIC... I read the one review and purchased it on the spot. (I've been wanting a "show-closer" piece of cube magic and have been searching for ingenious ways to do the "Millisecond solve" or match a spectator mixed cube ect ect.)
This Booklet was extremely Disappointing... Idk how much I can say here without giving up the secret and I don't intend to just hate on the creator either but the methods taught in this book (with the exception of the last trick) in my opinion can barely be called methods. The way he matches two cubes is the exact way you would think it would be done, and he basically says hope the spectator doesn't catch it.
It seemed to me they're were a lot of words but not many actual tips or helpful advice.
The toss up trick which he claims has a 90% hit rate in the trick description has (By his own admission!) a 50% hit rate in reality and NO room for failure (as ridiculous as that sounds).
And the last trick which I was VERY HAPPY to learn (because it's one of my favorites to watch and I never learned how it works) isn't even a RUBIKS cube trick... It's just a mentalism trick and the word rubik just happens to be in it... Might as well have said MAGIC it wouldn't have made a difference.
So although I was happy with that last trick I bought this booklet to learn some CUBE magic and I felt I came away with nothing... :(
