I will soon have to perform some tricks using matches and dice. Does anyone have any really good ideas to blow the audience away? Smile

The answer to your question: Yes, I do.

Now, I have a question. How do you get into the position of HAVING to perform tricks that you don't know, SOON?

Dice stacking is always impressive, depends on how much time you have to practice. Otherwise a simple Chink-A-Chink routine using dice, a two in the hand and one in the pocket type effect, Miko aka the 3 1/2 trick, do some coins across or coins through the table using dice instead of coins. Hank Lee has an old comedy effect where you slam a die onto the table top and instead of going through the dice is in a smashed like appearance flat on the table. You could make it if there is no time to buy one.

And I agree, how DO you get a gig using tricks you don't know or do?

Travelling match is my favorite match routine.

I am curious as well as to why you soon have to perform effects you don't know or have never practiced?

Hi guys, the reason Chuds needs to know (although it's not of major importance) is for our next magic circle meeting, where the theme is tricks with matches or dice.

Oh, I can't remember the name of it, I think it may be Metallurgy. Anyway, it involves having a coin in your hand and then introducing the flame from a match. After a flash of fire, you open your hand to reveal a melted coin. Maybe you could replace the coin with a die? Just a thought.

"It's the Rules" video by Bob Sheets or "James Lewis Tips Dr. Sack's Amazing Dice Trick" video are both great!

I apologize for my first smug answer.
Here is my olive branch:

Vinny (vinsmagic, here at the Café) performed an effect with dice which can be viewed here (you need to register to view, but tame enough)

I'm certain Vinny would point you in the right direction, should you want to learn this effect.
