I hope that there is not Popper deck in play and that the dice doesn't fall always on the four... Otherwise I'm in.
I would love to order this, but I don't understand french. Any help?

I don't know about the deck, but the (French) description does say that the spectator CHOOSES one face on the die. No roll: an actual choice.

My curiosity is piqued.

Indeed, the dice is never rolled during the performance. Only the spectator freely chooses the face of the dice.

I'd like to see (for once!) the marketing "speak" dropped, and an honest description of what does and doesn't happen during the effect.

To say the spec "freely chooses" the face of the dice is fine, as long as that's what he does.
If however, he adds up opposite sides, and then does some math to arrive at his "freely chosen" side of the dice.........that's very different (and a crappy method).
Not that this is what I'm suggesting is at play here, but "freely chosen" has a definite meaning in the English language.........so I would hope the face is freely chosen.

Multiple outs lurking at various places throughout your props is also lame, and been done before.

As I posted above, a force deck with multiple outs isn't an idea worth 60 Euros, and it's also an effect that I (and I suspect many others) have already, many times over.

Received today. Wonderful, nice scenario, nice routine, simple, it kills. I will have pleasure to work on it. I give it a solid 8/10 Smile

Not 10 out of 10? The scenario is indeed very good.A tiny bit like the Paul Wilson Predator wallet routine. Could you use the cards for something else straight after?

Well I don't call that a review. Can you tell us a little more? What the props looks like(cards,...),is the method good,what about the handling? Can spectator freely choose the number on the dice? Why you rank this 8/10? ...and so on and so forth.

I mean give us a decent review man!

The props are very nicely made, everything comes in a beautiful box, with all the props and gimmicks you need to perform the effect. The method is good, the deck can be handled freely, juste like the dice and the chips. All the cards are shown to be different by the performer. The spectator can choose any number he wants on the dice.
I don't rate it 9 or 10 because of some extra things (you will see what I mean if you have it).
The routining is excellent, the story brings a lot of suspense inot the spectator's mind, everything has been thought carefully by Julien.
I am not used to do reviews, and english is not my native language, so don't hesitate to ask me questions about my feeling Smile

Is the reveal always shown by turning the paper money over?

He's saying that the effect has multiple outs. That's all he needs to know to not buy this trick.

I like the premise though. Though I would have all the possibilities on a gaming slip and NW the prediction by circling the right values.

Perhaps you might want to consider continuing to eat your cards rather than trying to "tell" me what is, and what isn't a pity Smile

Yes, and I will continue to eat them Smile Then maybe I won't read stuff like what you told before (just because you know the principle, you don't buy: I thought youtube kids were used to do that... Apparently I was wrong).
