Rick:

I second your motion. While performing it involves some audacity, it is enjoyable to perform and it can really engage spectators.

What do you mean by it requires audacity?

Really? That's a fooler? Kinda reminds me of a lame trick Sammy Smith brought out years ago that rarely fooled anyone.

You couldn't pay me to perform this, and that's not because I figured out the method.
Message: Posted by: Rick11 (Jul 16, 2013 05:04PM)
Wow, Well I think very few people would figure this out! I like it!

Sammy Smith's Deja Zoo. Came out, oh a zillion years ago and would only fool sleeping newborns.

Ok, I'll make it clear since you seem to be having a hard time here. This trick is exactly the same as a trick that Samuel Patrick Smith came out with many years ago called Deja Zoo. Not one of Sammy's better offerings as the average 5 year old could figure out the method. Hope you have better luck with this lame piece of nonsense.

I must be a sleeping newborn because this fooled me and it looked great to me. I'm going to get it.

I agree 100%. Even if you COULDN'T figure out the method, who would want to go faffing about with little plastic windows and inserting cards hither and yon, and why would you use 2 sets of cards (or any cards for that matter), surely you'd just place aside your 2 predictions and then turn them over when the spectator told you what they'd rolled on the dice.

IMO the second set of cards and funny little plastic window tells the spectator a couple of things, firstly that the trick relies on multiple redundant cards and funny plastic windows to work, and secondly that they probably should have hired a different magician.

Anyone who likes the video will like this and anyone who doesn't will not like this. It happens exactly like the video every time!

This is so painfully obvious, how could you not figure this out in 2 seconds???

Say it three times, still painfully obvious for a 4 year old. If anyone can't figure this one out, head back to grade school!

Hey Rick, If you went to College call them up quickly, maybe you can get your money back!

I just got it and like it! Count me in the stupid pile. As well as those it fooled who I showed.

There have been many variations over the years of this effect and they all owe a thanks to Paul Curry. The nicest produced version was put out by Marcelo Contento many years ago... http://www.martinsmagic.com/?nd=full&key=66&myaf=2

Not an effect I would do but I do not think the method is stupid nor does it justify the comments shown here. It is OK not to like something but no need to belittle someone that does.

Samdan, All of those I showed (about 20 people) are also in the stupid pile as well. So far 100% success rate!

You could have them throw the two imaginary dice,then read spectators mind place the 2 cards in and bingo,agree the props look a bit magic set ,but I like it.
Message: Posted by: Ray Pierce (May 5, 2016 12:08AM)
This is simply a less justifiable version of Ultissimo. In the original there was a card stand which made a little more sense than this odd device. If I remember Ultissimo Jr, was much closer to this effect.
