Here is a bar bet that only magicians would ever be able to do....

Stack four red die on the table.
Produce a cup and a single blue die which sits on the table also.
The challenge is for the spectator to put the four red die ON TOP OF the one blue die.
They are only allowed to touch the cup and nothing else.


Easy once you know how....

I like it!
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

A couple of people gave PM'd me wanting the 'answer'.

Here is a video of Dave Van Vrankan that will give you a big hint.

Is it a card trick?

Yes.


But the cards have to be 1.5 cm high...and 1.5 cm wide...and 1.5cm deep. And made of plastic.

Sweet little video. Flawless technique. Frank's dice cup was moving so fast you couldn't see his picture on the bottom. Smile

Make a video? Just get a camera, you point it and push the little button and you have a video. Then you hook up the video camera to your computer and download it. There ya go.

Grr, I'd be interested in how to do the dice thing.

The joys of:
a) posting on forums where you don't get any of the inflection and intonation of language required
b) sarcastic posters ;-)

I'll try to be verbose in future.

Oh, sorry. It is rather easy if you have the right cup (see theambitiouscard.com) and you can learn from a couple of dedicated dice stacking vids available (either from Frank or school for scoundrels or other shop). Randy Wakeman also puts basic stacking on his Chicago card magic dvd.

Acmp, it's easy. The sources Steve mentioned are all good. Frank carries the Todd Strong video which is a good one to get the moves from.

Here's a free flourishy move for you. Compliments of me. You'll be able to do this 30 seconds after you get the basic moves down.

Nicholas, good idea for a bar bet. I like it, but my problem is that all the bars I go to seem to have those pesky lips on the dice cups.

Do they have cups with straight sides? Wrap a napkin around it and give'r a spin.
