Dear Ustaad, dear Café-Friends,

1
I have for more than a decade been an ardent admirer of Craig’s creations and bought most of them as soon as they became available. Craig’s service and help in integrating his Real Die and the Zodiac in Cesar’s Cassette Prediction has been invaluable for me to build a reputation of doing things “that cannot be explained”. A week ago on a radio show one of the anchors complained “The US president keeps pulling our leg” to which the co-anchor said, “I was at a resort yesterday, and there was a trumpish elderly gentleman. He kept pulling everyone's leg”. I got into this elite club of leg pullers by using Craig’s die to demonstrate I am able to, by looking into their eyes, make ladies put a die on the table the way I want while I turn around. I then continued by asking people to throw three dies, add up the result and go to that page in our President Niinistö’s book. (I happen to have it with his dedication to me personally, which clears any doubts it is not genuine.) After that I read the content of that page from the specs eyes. Anyone familiar with the MavericSlate and the MindWatch will understand that what seemed a miracle was easy for me even at age 82. (No memory work involved)

2
I bought the MindWatch in spite of the rather reserved posts on the Café during last year’s Blackpool special offer. And indeed like many on the Café had warned, the Mindwatch very soon became unreliable.

3
But as Gidy had given me very good service during the acquisition and shown patience with my PayPal problems, I contacted him and he offered to have the MindWatch checked. He sent me a replacement very quickly. And since then I have had no problems.

4
In the earlier version one must replace all four batteries rather often. As a fact I do it before a major show as it has happened that some batteries are not as log lasting as they normally should. Some people seem to be concerned with the cost of batteries – ridiculous amounts compared to the cost of props, just like my Range Rover's low MPG is a negligible nuisance compared to its myriad costly problems.

5
If you read the many posts on the Café when the MindWatch was introduced you will find posters were very concerned with the looks of the dies. I felt that was typical “Magician’s Syndrome”. (or worse “America First Syndrome” ) Maybe Americans watch the dies more closely but here in Europe during dozens of performances NOT ONE spec has ever felt the MindWatch dies were anything else but cheap dies.

5
Another problem anticipated was that opening by an Exacto knife would leave marks on the dies. That was true in the sense that it does, but again, cheap dies do not look new, so no problem here either. Gidy told me the dies are now made in by a different technique that should take care of that in my view “non-problem”. So far I am using the original ones and feel no need to upgrade neither die housings nor to switch to the rechargeable dies.

6
Waking up the dies needs rough handling, which in reality is VERY GOOD. What some specs have doubted is that the dies are weighted to always give the same result so I always say: please throw the dies on the table 3 times to ascertain they do give a different result every time. And only after that they throw the dies a fourth time while I turn my back.

BTW, if you believes the climate change is a hoax, please take a trip to Helsinki. We are in mid January and there is still no snow in my garden and no ice on the sea in front of it on which I 50 years ago used to go driving this time of the year.

Dear Sir Kaarlo von Freymann,

I fully agree with you on your above post. However I have my personal reservations regarding one of the products which I won't like to name as this will take the thread on a different tangent.

Thank you and take care Sir.

With utmost regards,

Narendra

Hi;

Following is a link of a short video clip.

You can see three dice rolled and the outcome is shown on eStooge's MindWatch as well as on the mobile screen. (can be Apple or Android).
In addition to the outcome of each die also the total is presented on the watch. Once the outcome is "Published" - a prediction letter is presented on a website or Facebook reading the roll time stamp and of course the outcome of all the dice.

The screen on the mobile, can ALSO be seen by any partner/spouse/friend using a simple link!!, NO App is required by him/her!! The spectator can be addressed to this partner ( who can be anywhere in the world ) who will tell him the outcome .

Enjoy and regards,

Gidy.

Dear Jaizon;

1. eStooge's products, including the MystiCube, are used by dozens of users worldwide for the last FOUR years. We keep improving our products constantly and we have upgraded and improved the MystiCube recently. Will it last additional 4 years? additional 8 or 10 years? I don't know, but this I can assure you: Fast, reliable and generous service is is not just a slogan for us, it's leading us all those years and we will keep it this way as you can see for yourself from the feedbacks in this thread.

2. The Charge will hold several weeks depending on the usage level after each charge.

3. You DON'T need the watch to make the phone connection work, the watch is just an additional device to present the outcome in ADDITION to the phone display, the watch is more used for closeup and table hopping cases while the mobile is more used for stage shows. We have many stage performers who don't own the watch.

I hope this answers your questions Jaizon and I will be happy to help with any further clarifications needed.

Gidy.

I am a huge fan of all the Promystic materials and their customer service but there was something very unique about these estooge-dice.
Not only are you able to know the numbers, but you also know which coloured die every person has. You can even start with a which hand Smile
That was for me the reason to give it a try.

The customer service is great. When I had a question or a problem, Gidy is always there to help you and he wouldn't stop until he knows everything is clear and fine.

Seeing the video of the new rechargeable dice is such an improvement on the way they look. I want these badly! See you guys at blackpool ;-)

Not really, he won’t be able to answer this question until one fails. Hopefully it will be many years before (as a user) I can answer that question myself. However from my experience with Gidy and the estooge team I have complete confidence that if and when they do fail Gidy will ensure that I am happy that my money was well spent.

Dear Elimagic;

I thought you ask about the die itself lifetime but now I realize you ask about the rechargeable battery lifetime. YES, I DO have very specific data about it and I will be happy to share it with you. Please address us at Support@eStooge.com and I will furnish you with all the information. This data is NOT public information.

Just took the plunge with MystiCube. Had a lot of questions before buying. Gidy really took the time to help me out with all of my questions. This is excellent customer service! Thanks a lot, Gidy!

I've used estooge for a couple years now. These guys are ahead of the curve on innovation and you can't go wrong with their products. I have found other uses for them beyond just the die. I put the dice in small boxes, ala iCube and print stickers to put on them. Allows me to do a bunch of other routines. Glad to see others embrace estooge and a thread that doesn't just bash new products coming to market. We need to support companies like this if we want more options in our performances. As to the life of the die, compare the pricing to the current market options. You are getting a lot of value here.
