TRICK DICE - Thought I'd share this source for some nice trick dice (tops and bottoms). These dice will allow you to exclude certain numbers or favor certain numbers. For example, the 1, 3, 5 and 2, 4, 6 pair each contain only those three numbers. Since you can only see 3 sides when looking at a die on the table... they look normal. Using the combination of both would mean you can only shoot a 3, 5, 7, 9, 11... so you in turn could force a card located at one of those locations, etc.

I looked all over for some 5/8" sharp or razor sided dice for the Sachs trick as the 3/4" is hard to learn with.  Jim Lewis suggested in his tape using 5/8".   I only found one place that supplied them but they were pricey.  If anyone is interested let me know and I'll find the info.

There are some other dice routines that were published:

 

Sol Stone’s $1,000 Dice Routine

 

This appears on page 239 of “The Essential Sol Stone

 

Gerald Deutsch Dice Caper

 

This appears on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on April 1, 2005 and on page 745 of the March 1983 issue of Apocalypse.

 

It is another good example of the type of Perverse Magic where the magician explains how simple things somehow affect other simple things which confuses him. The effect is as follows:

 

1        The magician has a white die, a salt shaker and a pepper shaker on the table. He explains that if you sprinkle salt on the die it becomes invisible. I do and it does.

 

 

2        Explaining the difficulty of storing an invisible die, the magician explains that he keeps it in a bagless purse (or purse frame - see discussion of this above December 2004). He gets such a purse from his pocket and drops in the invisible die.

 

 

3        The magician explains that while salt makes a visible die invisible, pepper will make an invisible die visible. He sprinkles pepper into the bagless purse and reaches in and pull out a visible die. Then he looks deeper into the bagless purse and pulls out another visible die chuckling and saying he lost that last week and wondered where it went.

 

 

4        He starts to put the bagless purse away and then thinks he saw something and sure enough there’s another visible die which he puts on the table with the other two.

 

 

5        He says you don’t need three dice so he drops the last back into the bagless purse where it again turns invisible and he starts to put the bagless purse away again and once more changes his mind and again takes out the third die  which is again visible.

 

 

6        The magician explains that the salt and pepper only works on one die at a time.  He puts all three in his hand, sprinkles salt and shows that only one became invisible, the other two remaining visible.

 

 

7        He puts the two visible dice in his hand, sprinkles salt and again only one becomes invisible. There are now two invisible and one visible dice on the table.

 

 

8        The magician explains that with an invisible die and a visible die you can always throw a 7. He demonstrates. He explains that with 2 invisible dice and one visible die you can always throw an 11. He demonstrates.

 

 

9        He takes the bagless purse from his pocket and drops in the two invisible dice and sprinkles in pepper to make them visible and reaches in and produces – a pack of gum – he looks confused – then he takes out the two dice now visible.

 

 

10    He explains that it’s important that you remember not to use pepper on a visible die because  - and does and shows that the die has changed from  white to red.

 

 

11    The magician explains that what really gets confusing is when you put both salt and pepper on a die---he does and shows that it has become a miniature die.

 

 

12    He shakes his head and says that it doesn’t stay that way long and as he drops the miniature die through his fist a huge giant die falls to the table as the magician looks startled.
