This is really easy and neat Dice trick that I teach in all of my magic classes...uses just regular dice that I get from the dollar store, usually the colored dice..
Tell your audience of poker buddies or friends you can do remote viewing. Explain what this is for those with puzzled looks on their faces.
• 2
Pick one person and give them a pair of dice. Turn your back to the person with the dice. Tell the group you'll have the person generate a random number with the dice and then, with remote viewing, magically determine the number
• 3
Instruct the person to roll the dice. Tell her to add the two numbers on the dice together in her head, but not to say anything out loud.
• 4
Have your friend pick up one of the dice, turn it over and look at the number. Tell him to add this number to the total.
• 5
Ask the dice roller to roll the dice she picked up one more time. Then, have her add this number to her total as well.
• 6
Turn around to face the person and the dice. Look at the dice, add the numbers showing together and then add seven. By adding seven, you'll always come up with their number no matter what the number is.
• 7
Make a good magic presentation of the dice trick. Tell the person to concentrate on his number and pretend to go into a remove viewing trance. To add to the dramatic effect, write the number on a piece of paper and reveal it to the group.

Which tricks would you recommend for loaded dice? I bought a pair of dices (one loaded, one normal) recently for some reason, but haven't found so much use for them. Of course you can gamble with somebody using shuttle pass etc., but... it's not very magical...

I know Badlands Bob was mentioned but Viking also has some more great dice effects:

There's a chapter on dice effects in SW Table Magic by Karl Fulves. There are also a few in Dunninger's Encyclopedia. The original Dr Sack routine - which is a stunner - is in Bruce Elliott's Classic Secrets of Magic.

Shrinking Die

Whip Cup and Dice (My favorite!)

Carl Bremma had a mini, single dice holder (cube), that worked like a Boston Box

Plus, I have two dice effects that I have on the market. The first is, "Dice-Paddle Prediction" that includes routines and ideas with dice and paddles and the second is "Red Hot Dice" that is a pair of dice that at the end of a routine melt into a half pool. The die is half way there and half way melted into a puddle.

Hi! Mind Magic mentioned that Dr. Sack's dice routine is in Bruce Elliot's "Classic Secrets of Magic".

Vlad_77 mentioned that it's in "Phoenix". It's in Phoenix #152.

The late Mel Burkhart, an old side show friend, did it with dice about 2" (cube).

A few other effects that employ dice that I found in my collection are, Abbott's "Whiz Ding", Ed Mishell's "Chip Stack", and "Twenty-First Century Miko" put out by Paul Diamond.

This is an idea from my lecture notes/book "Happy Hour" (2014). I originally discovered this idea in 1988 and taught it at many of my lectures, however, I did not put it in print until 2014.

15. White Flower Liquid; White Flower liquid is a Chinese analgesic liquid used for treating muscle strains, congestion, arthritis pain, some headaches, and several other ailments. I started using it in 1988, after sustaining a shoulder injury. It was shown to me by Dr. Wu during the Las Vegas Desert Magic Seminar who treated my shoulder after my injury. Shortly after I started treating my shoulder with the White Flower, I discovered that it had a strange effect on my fingers. It acted as an astringent that caused my fingers to simulate a rattling dice sound when I would rub them together. It really sounds like a pair of dice being rattled around in your hand. I immediately saw the possibilities for the effect. Two of my ideas are; Drop several dice on the table, pretend to pick two of the dice up, and rattle them in your hands. I now ask a spectator, "Call out any number.", and after the spectator calls a number, throw the dice to the table. However the dice vanish. I then say, "Sorry - better luck next time." Or, instead of nothing falling from your hand, a silver dollar or two fall out. Instead of, "Sorry - better luck next time.", at this time I would say, "Nope - it is heads." That is if the coin drops head side up. Otherwise I would of course say, "Nope - it is tails." This could make for a good segue from a dice routine and into a coin routine.

I once showed my vanishing dice effect to my friend Roger Klause who immediately started to use it. I also performed it at many of my lectures. I was amused when a few of my lecture attendees thought that I was using some sort of recording device to create the sound of rattling dice.

Another of its uses is; it clears the sinuses. Something that is very handy when you live in Michigan where colds, flu, hay fever, and congestion are the norm. I would use it just before starting my show or lecture so that my sinuses were clear and I was refreshed. White Flower liquid is available through most Chinese grocery stores. There is one downside to using White Flower Liquid. It has a very strong Camphor and Eucalyptus smell to it.

I hope that you enjoy my idea and will try it
