Gregory Wilson has an awesome effect he performed and explained at FISM last year. I believe he is planning to market it.
Yours,

Going back to the potentially misleading advertising, I bought my DVD from a UK dealer over the telephone. Like many others, the wording on their website does not make reference to the fact that the cubes are missing. I mentioned this to the gentleman on the end of the phone and he just said that they had just copied and pasted the standard text on to their site and they did not have time to check if any of their product wording from their suppliers matched what they were actually selling. This kind of attitude towards the way tricks are being sold is the nature of the business these days - I would be amazed if old school dealers like Ken Brooke would have taken this attitude.Smile


It is not just the only UK dealers, but all the web dealers. I have gotten that same excuse for posting false photos of the props, false wording and description of the props. They all think it is fine to take your money and not provide the items you thought you were getting. No website dealer can be trusted. As they will not open a products to see if it is what the advertisement says it is.

We can only hope that enough of this "fraudulent" business practices will be regulated some day soon for Internet commerce websites. Until them "let the buyer be ware!"

Concerning the product, $45 is a lot of money for only the secret without any props except a bag. This is one of those tricks that, years ago, would have been published in a magic magazine or book and not sold because it does not contain any gimmicks.

Would this be able to be performed blindfolded? Or at least, using a "special" blindfold of some sort?

Certainly with a 'special' blindfold but I don't think I'd attempt it actually blindfolded although you could probably do the first part where you match the small cube to the large cube. The solving of the large cube would be much trickier actually blindfolded.

I came up with a way to achieve the first part (as described above) and thought that would be the end of it,

as it is a routine I want to use, I was looking for reasons to buy it (that and the fact that I already had the cubes...)

the amount this costs vs my time to come up with a way to perfect the routine and the fact that I wanted to buy it to support creators meant that I bought it

I'm happy I did, I wont be using the restore, but the other routine is clear and simple, this isn't a full review as I haven't performed it yet, but I will be!

Uday it is great that your name is still on the cover...

Im the creator of the restoration and the full routine of Rubik's Nightmare, but my name is being put at the back as "co-creator", not even on the product name or front cover due to some business reason.

I bought the nightmare although I almost knew how it's done. After playing and thinking a bit I made a few adaptions, that suit my style.
1. Due to obvious reasons, I wanted to use two regular cubes (stage)
2. I liked the idea of solving it in the end, but not the magical way. I wanted it to be mental.

So my ideas for the owners of the DVD:

Instead of the "gimmick" I use a table flipchart(There are some facts about the cube on it, like world records or the incredible figure of possibilities....)

In the end you can have a spectator put a black cloth over your hands to solve the cube in a non magical way.

Hope that might help some of you to give this nice routine a try.
