“RUBICON is so spectacular that I featured it on one of my TV specials!”
“Greg's elegant solution is as simple as it is beautiful.”
“For so many reasons, RUBICON is one of the most talked about moments in my parlour and stage shows.”
“You get away with it right under their noses. The hardest part is not laughing as you do so.”
“The real con is you will look like a genius without being one.”
“This is as good or better than any $10,000 illusion in my show!”
THIS IS THE CUBE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
For over a decade, I have performed RUBICON around the world and have been asked over and over when I'm releasing it to the conjuring community. My original version was handcrafted, but only recent state-of-the-art technology enabled the gimmick to be engineered and machined in a far superior fashion.
About five years ago I allowed a few high-caliber magician friends to perform this routine, as I knew they would do it justice in their professional shows. I am confident you will enjoy it as much as they have:
Don’t think of this as a trick, but rather as 5 to 7 miraculous minutes to add directly to your show.
Comes with everything you need to RUBICON your audience immediately: Two cubes. Precision-made gimmick. Customized performance box. Instructional streaming video. Adoring fans not included.

Great Trick Report this review

I pre-ordered Rubicon and received it last month. It is an awesome trick and now has a place in my show. It is well made and thought out. This will last for years. It is packaged very well and the packaging is so good you can use it for your shows. I didn't have to make any adjustments but other might spend some time adjusting it to your needs. The only downside is the instructions or online only, and I'm not a fan of that but that's personal preference. I think this one is a home run.

I normally don't spend this much on an effect but after having volunteered at the Magic Castle for this and knowing Greg's reputation, I just had to get it. Boy, am I glad I did. The workmanship is fantastic and very easy to perform. If you are considering this purchase, you will not be sorry.

Rubicon went into my show immediately and will remain there. It's the epitome of pack small, play big. It will easily show up for groups of 200 and will withstand the scrutiny of 10 people. This trick absolutely slays the people.
Expensive for a reason Report this review

This is well worth the money. Sell a car or rob your neighbor. You need this. There are other systems on the market that use some of the theory here. Nothing even remotely competes with the manufacturing and production. Greg's instruction is beyond compare. It is fun and funny and beyond deeply detailed. This was not rushed out. It's clearly a labor of love. The fact that the first match is from a spectator randomly mixing the cube and the Magi's cube exactly matches may be more shocking than the finale of solving the cube. The gaff here is so well made and the "dork" is done in a 10th of a second and is invisible surrounded and is surefire. You will practice this for a few hours before presenting it but that is a small barrier to entry fro what you can build into 5 minutes of a major miracle that packs in a briefcase. My only beef is that just one set of replacement stickers are included in case you ever need them. They should give you 3 or 4 sets. It's stickers and cheap. But you get them dirty in regular performance and need more for an effect this costly. Rock on! Buy it!
A must for cube magicians Report this review

RUBICON is a must for any magician looking to develop a routine involving Rubik's cubes. It is simple to master and extremely powerful when performed. Naturally, it is the perfect ending to any cube routine. However, since it is a fairly short sequence, I choose to perform Cube3 by Steven Brundage and immediately follow it with RUBICON; this lengthens my routine and allows it room to develop. All in all, this is a fantastic purchase for any serious performer.

What can I say besides I want this all to myself. Not what I thought it was gonna be in a good way. I can use this in restaurants closeup in busking in stage shows literally anywhere. I don't really see a drawback unless you break your cube. Inside the box they also give you extra stickers for the cube if they wear down. Also they have online instructions which gregory wilson will then add more and more stuff in video formats to learn from. All that said it's expensive if you don't use it, but if you do dammmnnnn.
Reactions are not like in the trailer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 25th, 2016
It's very cool concept but can drive you mad if you mess it up
Reactions are not spectacular like with my other effects it seems to audience like a puzzle category not magic ( Eugene burger)
Also phase two people think it's a trick cube and want to examine it which is not good if you want your cube staying not mixed state
But it's great because it's a different type of magic Vs cards coins. Etc.
I'll see if I can try different presentation to get better reactions but I feel other tricks getter better reactions like confabulation, spoon cracking or guessing someone's I phone code.

I had ordered Rubicon last week and just received it. Did not have any idea what I was getting. This is a first for me.Watching the shipping progress everyday I just received the package. Just opening the package was a drum roll. When I opened the box and saw Gregory's packaging I started to get excited. Opening the storage box and seeing 2 beautiful rubics cubes very elegantly sitting there and other items, I was able to breath again knowing this was a great purchase.
I am a big fan of rubics cube getting interest from Steven Brundage, A huge advantage I had that I have is I purchased that first and spent countless hours learning how to solve a cube legitimately. Gregory's Rubicon just made my experience easier than I would have been comfortable learning with this caliber of equipment.
After watching online videos I felt Gregory was in the room with me, making me feel very confident and comfortable.
I do highly recommend this set, and I know you will to

This routine is great. Very easy to perform but expect practice. I only say this because every routine should be practiced. Yes it could be performed 20min after watching the how to but lets show this routine some respect. It comes with everything you need to perform it right away. My favorite part (and I do not know why this isn't done with every cube). One of the cubes has adjustment screws inside to adjust the tension on the cube to be loose and easy to spin or a bit firmer like a Walmart bought cube. Loose doesn't spin as fast as a speed cube but it is nice to control the adjustment. I felt the routine was a bit short so I combine it with Cube3
Amazing effect pack small and play huge Report this review

When a person like me being in magic for more than a decade, an effect consider to be good or bad will have lots of consideration. From practicability, size, weight, design, reset, price, value… etc. any criteria you can think about. Of course different person have different opinion on what criteria they will consider, however, being a reasonable and justify criteria involve I believe that we should think like a normal performer who perform like a pro with minimal help and even without assistant while we perform, the venue is either close up / parlor / mini-stage without much angle / lighting problem, plus props for the gig should be able to put everything inside a suitcase / bag without being require luggage transport separate with the performer on plane.
Rubicon, in my consideration, meet all my criteria.
Is it a price friendly effect, absolutely not. Consider an effect spent a decade to perfect and being used by top names of the industry including Cyril Takayama on his TV special. Pricey also a positive factor because it keep away those who only want to know the secret only. So I congratulate those who really spend the money to support this effect. Even bootneck video will available eventually, I can assure that those cannot perform the whole routine, because it requires the rubik’s cube (two of them) provided and special props included. So rest assured your $300 was spent wisely.
However, the instruction video web did have flaws and explanation quite jumpy, you need to watch them all and then consider which part you need to focus then watch them again.
Besides, a real easy set up and restore sequence involve but for those who spent a week or two can do it.
Frankly if I can do and I am such a lazy person can do it, I think you can do it too.
One of the best release in 2016.
