    Details

    The full work on Mark Elsdon's ground-breaking Rubik's Cube effect.

    The Effect:
    A real Rubik's cube is passed around and thuroughly mixed by several spectators. The magician looks over the cube and memorizes it before putting on an examined blindfold. Amazingly the magician seems to know the exact turns necissary to restore the cube to its solved condition.

    Recommended For:
    Close-up and party magicians.

    Trick Specifications:
    Full length DVD teaches you everything you need to know to solve Rubik's Cubes while blindfolded. Please Note: This trick uses a standard Rubik's Cube, so one is not included in the effect.

    Skill Level:Advanced.
    Category: Close-Up.

    This DVD provides two main things: (1) A method for solving the cube, and (2) a method for doing so while blindfolded. I already know how to solve the cube in ~5 minutes, so I got this primarily for the additional knowledge of doing so with the blindfold.

    Of this ~90 minute DVD, approximately 90% of the time is dedicated to teaching how to solve the cube. As I mentioned, I already know how to solve the cube. There are a bunch of cube-solving methods available for free online. I learned using the very first video that is linked-to on the Rubik's website. The method Mark Elsdon uses is a bit different, with many similarities. And although it's really nice to see (and eventually learn) another method to solve it, I certainly wouldn't have spent the money on this disc just to learn another method to solve.

    As for the secret for solving with the blindfold on: I won't give it away, but I will say that it's quite disappointing. Before purchase, I even considered it as an option, and thought to myself, "No, it couldn't just be that, could it?" Yup, it sure was.

    So in the end, I paid way more than I should have to learn a 2nd method of solving the cube, and an extremely disappointing and easy-to-work-out-on-your-own secret.

    My advice would be to simply go to the Rubik's site and learn one (or more) of the ways to solve the cube found there. Then get a sleep-mask and see what you figure out there. It shouldn't take but a moment or two. Then spend the money on another trick.

    BTW, learning to solve the cube isn't as hard as it sounds, but it definitely will take a week or so of regular practice and a bit of memorization. I spent ~10 minutes each day for a week before I was able to do it in under 5 minutes without having to look up the algorithms again.

    And honestly, people think that in itself is pretty darn impressive. (Posted on 6/21/13)

    This is an awesome trick, with a great method. It really is awesome, and, if done right, is foolproof. I put ease of use as a 2, and that is only because you have to solve a rubik's cube, that is difficult. And it is a bit pricy. Overall, it is a very good trick, and, if you are up for the challenge, i recommend it. (Posted on 3/2/13)

    I am actually a "speedcuber"-I can solve a rubiks cube in about 10 seconds and I could already do it blindfolded in about 1 1/2 minutes including memorizing, and I would have to say that this is a good dvd to learn off of even though I learned from elsewhere. It is tricky to get the hang of but after you do, it is impressive. (Posted on 11/28/12)

    I Agree With Sean. It Is A Great Video, But Practice Is The Key Word. You'Ll Have To Watch It Several Times. I Have Watched It 3 Times Now, But I Am Totally Impressed And Can'T Wait To Rock It Live! (Posted on 9/29/11)

    I Am Currently Working On This. I Must Say It Is Awesome To Finally Learn To Solve The Rubiks Cube. The Material Is Very Well Taught And Explained On This Dvd. The Steps Are Simple Just Long. But You Can Easily Solve The Rubiks Cube In Under 5Min Once Mastered, Then With More Practise Getting It Down To 2Min. But This Cookie Will Take A Good While To Learn But Its Worth The Bragging Rights "Blindfolded" ;) Or Not! (Posted on 1/27/11)

    I Would Just Like To Point Out That This Video Does Not Teach You How To Solve A Cube From Memory. It Has Very Good Instruction On How To Legitimately Solve A Cube, But The Blindfolded Part Is Just An Effect, You Won'T Actually Learn How To Solve It By Memory. (Posted on 11/5/09)

    I Don'T Really Think This Is As Much Of A Magic Trick As A Fun Thing You Do At Parties, But It Really Is Amazing. I Recommend Learning How To Solve A Rubik'S Cube Normally, Without The Blindfold, First. It Helps A Lot. (Posted on 6/1/09)
