Inside my brown bag, I will have cube shell and a stacked cube+the pouch(containing a cube and minicube with shell).First I take out the pouch and perform recurring nightmare routine.The solved cube is again handed over to the spectator to perform matching 2nd phase.After matching both cubes are solved 'Behind the back' and 'In the Bag'.
My recommendation :
Only 1 set of RD is left in NMS. Grab it as soon as you can before I change my mind and order an additional set.
- Everytime we have to go inside the paperbag, except in the case of recurring nightmare routine.
- Stickers(Blue and Red) for minicube is not matching with the cube.
- You may need 2 RD sets to show all the effects you are seeing in videos.
- Sticking the stickers is tedious(Suggestion:Use a needle to place the stickers neatly)
- Supplied cubes(ShengShou Wind) are smooth, but corner cutting is not as good as a cube3 cube.
- White performance box is a dirt magnet. I would have preferred a black one like Rubicon.
- In matching effect you can show 5 sides(even 6 sides using Matching V2). But in Rubicon and Perfect Square you can show only 4 sides(2 sides are dirty).
- Vimeo instructional video is very nicely presented and organised with timeline.
- Facebook group(with 422 members) for Rubiks Dreams is the second best I have seen (1st of course is 'Inject'). There are lots of performance videos,ideas etc.
- Very versatile set using which you can create your own routines.
- Uber realistic shells
- Pouch to carry cubes
After buying this set, the biggest decision you have to make in your life other than selecting your spouse will be whether to make the shell as solved cube or stacked cube. Because in the videos, he shows effects using both.What I have done is , I made the cube shell solved and minicube shell stacked(for Recurring Nightmare). The advantage this has in matching routine is that you will end up with 2 ungimmicked cubes whose 6 sides match.RD 360 is going to come out . I think it will be a great addon to RD.
At first, I thought that this trick would not amaze my spectators (who are mostly smart students), but I was wrong. The simplicity of the trick is what fools the spectators. It does require a little practice, but is worth. The expressions of amazement on the spectators' faces is enough proof that the money spent on this trick is not wasted. Buy it to believe it.
I could not figure out the gimmick when I watched the video before buying. The gimmick is good but is of a little whiter shade than the real Polo mint. However, the difference in shade cannot be detected from an adequate distance. I have received great reactions from my audience.
Great book test featuring 6 effects, which are:
a)FLASHBACK (1st effect in trailer)
b)ULYSSES (2nd effect in trailer)
c)SCRABBLE (version of 2nd)
d)CROSS-EYE ( Revelation of 2 words)
e)POWDER (Revelation of page no: after hearing 1st line+chapter revelation+paragraph revelation+line of any word
f)SHARED VISION Without you ever touching the book, the spectator opens the book at any page and reads the few first lines silently.Then you describe a scene with precise details. The spectator confirms that your description matches what he read.
What u will get: 398 page paperback book, inside which you will find link to download a 59 page instructional pdf.
PROS: Super easy to do, Lot of effects to chose from, book will pass casual inspection
CONS: No contents page, Instructional link printed on 1st page (but he provided ways to hide this link+templates included in pdf for download)
This is really awesome, the best book test I have ever seen. perfect for mentalism. to improve effect I use this book along with a general book and do magicians force so spectator thinks its random choice :)
and the best part is its price, NMS TEAM is always doing a great job by offering the discount on these type of mind-blowing products.
If you know Bicycle then you dont need to read any further, if you dont then Bicycle is the go to standard for playing cards as well as for tricks. They have this subtle texture on them they are crisp. Well worth the price. Nikhil's Magic shop delivered the product in just 2 days!!! I started my magic journey with these bad boys :D
I just can't stop playing with it. I got a decent spin in under 1 hour. The problem is, I can't put it down! This is the Best gimmick I ever bought and works 100% same as described. Detailed Instruction with many innovative ideas, gr8 Job.
i am going to order soon 2nd piece as spare because of its main act for me now ...
