    • [1982 March 18, Stephan Sulyak, “Review: The magic cube (A Büvös Kocka)”, in New Scientist, volume 93, number 1297, ISSN 0028-6664, page 734:
      [] as far as I know there is no standard word describing the art of playing with the cube. Cubing? Cubistics? Rubikonomia? or perhaps Rubikomania? Can the science (or art) of doing it be called “cubology”, as suggested by Scientific American? Some enthusiasts borrow “cubism” and call themselves “cubists”, all very reminiscent of the 1920s three dimensional, modern art phase.]
