I am thinking of buying this die if a "Which Hand" routine is possible with this die.

Let's say you have the die in a fist behind your back and bring the hand in front of you.
Is this movement enough to get a vibration?

Any movement that changes the uppermost side will give you a reading. Under most circumstances that means there doesn’t have to be a whole lot of movement.
Nice thing about this method is that you don’t have to touch your spec, in fact you can be a good distance away and even have your back turned to them.

I actually prefer the 3 dice set for this as it allows you to also determine the color. Plus, I find the visual display is better to detect very fast, small changes and you know instantly what the number is.

This is madness. A thumper is now available which will work with my three mental dice - however, in order to get it I must also buy a fourth die. I don't want yet another die but I do want a thumper. Is that too much to ask?

I agree. But I wanted the thumper enough that I went ahead and sprung for the black version. At least that way I have a fourth color in addition to my previously purchased red-white-blue set.

WORKS WITH MENTAL DICE SET!! Can you tell us more? with a dice I can understand, but 4? One at a time?


I own both the Dice and the Die. As stated, it will work with the single black or white die that comes with the thumper. If you want to use the thumper with the Mental Dice the thumper will work with the three Mental Dice only. From the publicly disseminated copy, "This new vibration system also allows you to receive individual, tactile signals to be used in place of the receiver included with Anverdi's original Mental Dice Set!"

As previously stated, this was originally going to be marketed as a thumper for the original Mental Dice and they decided to throw in a bonus die (I got the black one which isn't one of the colors in Mental Dice). They also throw in a charger.

It doesn't work with 4 dice.

This is great going to order soon glad I waited cause I really didn't need the 3 dice for 295.00 ! the black is nice but may not look common to a lay person.
I will probably go with the white dice . Anyone have any thoughts on what color dice they would go with ?

thanks,
Tophatter


I went with the black die because I already have the red, white, and blue dice that are in the original Mental Dice set. So I went with black as an additional color. As advertised, I can use all three of the original Mental Dice, as well as just the white die from the original set. So I can use the new Mental Die unit with either the newly purchased black die or my older one-of-three white die.

I'm going to experiment to see how the new black die plays with the original set (i.e., can it replace one of the original three dice).

If I was just purchasing the Mental Die I would go with the white die for the reason you state. A single white die is more standard and less noticeable.

To Doric funnily enough it’s the people who buy the products cheap like this one for say £130 who do a presentation like . “ Roll the die I won’t look , you picked number 4 right ? “ Ironically those of us that pay the Promystic prices and have had these for literally years before any possible exposure would never ever dream of performing it in this manner even though we could of without fear of technology even crossing the spectators minds . This is what happens when you make things available ie cheap to all , people can’t keep their mouths shut imo Gaz 🙂

Exactly!

Their minds would explode if I told them I use all 3 dice but the spectator is never aware any dice are in play, at any time. Lol.

I received a couple of private messages asking me how I use the dice. Now you can discover what I was talking about. 😉

Thanks for the link Doric. Nice to know that option is available. Could give more mileage to using the dice.

I had thought about trying to make similar boxes out of wood but thought it might be a pain to have them match exactly. Then I questioned whether they really needed to match exactly. Then my brain got too tired thinking about it so I left it on the back burner.

But my intention was to create something I could have out on display that would intrigue people enough to ask about it.

One problem I see is that we tend to be selective in who and what products we complain about when it comes to originality or the "rights" to produce and sell. Certain people can outright blatantly copy and steal others work and get away with it because everyone likes them, while others get crucified. It has been this way for years. Most would be surprised at just how many effects they perform are a rip off of someone else's hard work.


We call it rip off, but look at what we would be driving today without competition and innovation. I'm not saying it's right just that sometimes it does improve our lives.

It also seems to work out better if you rip off a lot of stuff.
Rip off one or two effects and you’re a thief. But rip off an entire product line and you’re just a new competitor in the field.

Same thing in everyday life.
Get caught stealing $30,000 and you go to prison.
Get caught stealing $100 million and you’re fined $50,000.

In the tutorial, Javier mentions an acrylic photo box to put the dice in (so that words, images or symbols can be used instead of numbers). Has anyone found such a box?

It was the MCS Acrylic Box, and I have no idea where to find it.

Now, my question: I just watched the video, and admit that I am tired, so I may have missed it, but, after pairing the die with the thumper, what is the range? How far away can my partner be to determine the correct number? RLD

Aha! Found a link: https://www.pfile.com/product/j-pc-35/?r......QAvD_BwE

Now, anyone want to send me one? They cost USD$3.99, and to ship here to Canada its $35 ! ! Just a bad move, unless someone/anyone can help me out...

Here are a couple possibilities from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Stumps-Unimprinte......2&sr=8-8

https://www.amazon.com/MCS-3-25x3-25-Pla......2&sr=8-3

I do like the idea of using this to display photos in your home and then using it to perform mentalism.

Also, Saturn Magic sells these which are much smaller than the photo cubes if you prefer.
