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.

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!

This is an honnest review
I can't understand all the positive comments,first of all you need to
learn a false shuffling by garett. you were watching Gregory in the demo solving the cube behind his
back , the cube itself really doesn't do the job for you as he was claiming , for that higher price
i expected that the cube to be solved by itself , or if it could be making life more easily for me
solving it, but it couldn't do neither of those. The gimmick you'll get is only for recieving the
same prediction as the audience rubik's suffling and that all. I don't recommend buying this .

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.

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

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.

I had to really think if i do wanna spend that much money on in one sense single effect. But knowing
Greg's works, i just had to make sure I've got the money to get it.
I had really no real
idea what i am gonna receive and it took some time for it to arrive.
But once it did
arrive i was totally happy with the purchase... It feels like unpacking iPhone. Really. The
packaging is really nicely done. inside the box you get everything you need and you truly should use
the box for performance. Because it deserves it.
You do need to spend time to learn
everything. Not that it is real difficult, but just not to mess it up. because that is what i did
with both of the cubes.. and when you do not know how to solve the cube as me, then it takes time to
cheat solve it :)
The instructions are very detailed. Just make sure that you listen to the
instructions first before meeting with the cube...
it will go to my set with the full
scale thing... i am real happy i got this...
it is something totally different from what i
normally do, so it fits in and basically it will work for the bigger kids as well.

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
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
