Well... one of my favorite things to hold in my hands ( yeah, I can think of the same jokes as y'all, as most of us can so...no need to post them. Thanks!) Looking at the contributors, I want this. Exactly my cup of glue.

Thank you for posting Kotah !

It's taken nearly three years in the making. Many asked after 'Feather Mysteries' what was next - well research was already underway then! It was my intention to present the bigger picture of dice - as a concept too - to those who look beyond 'tricks' when devloping routines. Consequently it is a BIG book with some quite diverse content surrounding dice too ... I really hope it becomes a valued resource to those that can / do invest in this.

You can find a contents preview on my products website here: https://www.mysteryentertainerproducts.com/mysteries

Do lookout for Lulu voucher codes and coupons too!

I continue to appreciate Key Mysteries. I lacked interest in the Feathers project, but became a quick adopter when I read in this thread about Dice Mysteries. Thanks, Sfeve, for your industry and your contribution to the art.

This is an amazing tome. Steve has crafted a thorough journey through the history of dice and the book features some of the best in our trade offering wonderful gems. At 580 pages, it has something for everyone. The design and layout are amazing. This is a work of love, sweat, and tears.

I'm one of the contributors to the book, but was not privy to the contents until the project was finished.

While the effects are well and nice, I found the historical notes and related information on types of dice and their uses etc to be thoroughly fascinating. I've not quite finished the entire book as it is HUGE, but I can honestly say that there is simply no other resource on the subject that is so comprehensive in scope. Kudos to Steve for all his hard work on this project.

If you have more than a passing interest in dice, this is simply a "must-have" book.
Magic which awakens and nourishes the divine spirit in man encourages the growth of true humanity, in contrast to the materialistic outlook which binds man to the earth.

FedEx delivered this tome to my door today. It certainly is all that Sudo Nimb has said and so much more.


If you are short, this is thick enough to help you reach the cookie jar. It is heavy enough to press and dry decorative fall leaves

It could also be used as a dandy door stop.

But ideally. you will use it as intended, as a resource for all things concerning dice. We all have many edifying hours awiting us within these pages.
Steve Drury has given our community yet another sterling gift.

I have spent part of several days with Dice Mysteries. It features extensive background information about the history of dice and other historical random number generators, and a nice range of possible dice effects from a dozen or so contributors. I am already developing my own version of one of the effects, and have my eye on five others. This is even better than Drury's earlier Key Mysteries.

High praise as key mysteries was a very definitive text on the subject. Very tempted with this. Any lulu codes going at the moment?
