Self Contained
Easy to carry and Packs Flat
Easy to Perform with great reaction!
Perfect for stage and parlor type performance
Just Open the bag and perform the illusion

All the dice productions I know about, seen, and owned are cardboard and work with a rubber band. So after some use, you will have some repairing to do, or if you are crafty, make new dice.

The video looks like they cut out so much of the actions, it is hard to know what has to be done before the production of 6 dice. Just to much editing at critical points in the demonstration. It does look good, but that is not the whole story from what I see.

Things to think about with this type of effect, do you have a large table to place the dice for display. Or will you drop in a ditch bag. If you do kids shows, kids after the show will rush you and the performance area, how will you prevent the kids from handling the dice.

Thanks Bill.

I have a table that I made myself so I have the room. As for kids coming up after the show I thought about that and have come up with some solutions, but nothing set in stone because I would want to see the actual item. I am looking for something colorful that packs a walloup for my music part of my show or perhaps my new music section.

I also wanted to add that the video was one of the reasons why I posted this. I thought that perhaps someone on the Café has this effect and could put some light into the matter.

Well I went ahead and bought it. Hopefully it will work out, but I will post my thoughts after I get it.

I received this today and I will say that I really like it. I have never used a similar. effect, but I think the quality is good. I will say the dice seem good, but not great. Perhaps I can make some or buy some extra. You can only produce three dice at a time, but 12 dice all together. I think I will make a review in the review section after a couple days of using it.

I bought one of this a couple of years ago, hoping for something colorful to use for kids... this is crap, you will have to do most of the dices again as they "tell", haven't done it with public... It is not a cheap product to have on a drawer. it's a real pitty
