Oh guys I'd love to hear if any of you try "baking" some cellulose acetate dice in the oven, or better still, some of the older cellulose nitrate cubes...

Try it!


I imagine they are mostly disintegrated by now... or in Ricky Jays collection..

I am amazed it took this long for someone to make this observation though.

I wasn't referring to any specific dice other than the notion of "100%" dice, although I agree with everything Mr.Z said. Since the topic is evolving from the imaginary to the possible let me add that I generally don't suspect that any dice are ever switched "Single O" (except by magicians in 'demos') and I think tops are still a favourite.... even with the mirrors. Just make sure the stick is "bought".

If I was so inclined... I would go with percentage dice and either "leave them in" as Mr. Z suggests, or more likely I would let them roll for an extended period of time and attempt to retrieve them only before they are pulled from play. Preferably I would delegate the retrieval of my property to a like minded staff member of the casino (or host of the game).

... either way, I'm not in the picture when those dice come off. If they come off clean, I'll pay off my "partners" cut and collect my dice. If there is a beef, or my "partner" gets popped, I'm long gone and I'll let him keep the dice for his troubles... a good deal I think as a well matched set of weights don't come cheap.

Tops ain't exactly "100%" dice. Trying to hit an eight while youre only hitting 4s and 6s can turn into a nightmare after a few tosses. This thread Is more of a history lesson than anything.

Tops are 100% if you know what you're talking about.

I think 92 flunked history.

What, like this one...?

By the way, if you're going to bake cellulose nitrate cubes make sure you use a gas oven.

you know well enough what I'm talking about. Or your reading comprehension skills are fading in your old age. Smile

Hi Grant,

Thanks for your opinion. KipJay, the creator of the video, doesn't need to create fakes he is a well known "modder" and has no interest in hoaxing the web or some little gambling message board. This is the kind of thing he does every day. That is finding unique ways to "hack" everyday objects. If you check his other videos you will find that.

However, If you need a hipper more sullen and tattooed source; even Daniel Madison has blogged this process with is own experiments and success.

This wont matter to you, your mind is made up...period.


No interest for making fake videos? Come on... We all like to have our fun!

As for the blog, Daniel didn't seem to have any real success... the KipJay showed the guy rolling a 7 everytime. Possibly a little video editing?

Daniel also claimed, through his testing, that it wouldn't work with those drug store dice (that were in the KipJay video)!

Fake? Yes. Smile
