I am reading Vernon dice routine, and would like to do it. It requires 4 regular dice, 1 tiny and 1 big die, any help from where can I get all the dice?

Try the Gambler's General Store; they may have what you need. I know that they have lots of dice in many sizes and colors.

Try searching for "vintage dice" on EBay. Large variety of sizes and colors.

I second Gamblers General Store. You may even time a game store that sells dice for different games may find what you are looking for there. But first check with G.G.S. They would be my first choice.

Gamblers General Store. I visted this place when I was in Las vegas. It was great brougth a heap of stuff. I brougth a pile of dice that all looked the same but varied in size. http://www.gamblersgeneralstore.com/

Here you can find set to buy. (your only hear good things about Frank as well)
http://www.theambitiouscard.com/category......essories

This place migth be worth checking as well.http://www.cards4magic.co.uk/acatalog/Casino_Accessories.html

If you havent already you migth want to look at more dice routines. Vernon dice routine is a fine dice routine and well worth learning. But you may want to add a bit of dice stacking on to it for example and the dice you use for that may effet your choice of dice.

I hope this helps and I love dice routines if you want any more help just PM. I don't know it all but I do have a bit of love for the dice.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

A few years ago, there was a VHS released that had all the dice you needed for the routine, along with other routines that could be done (such as Sack's routine). It was a nice set of dice, and all matched. Came with a little bag to carry all of the dice in them.

I still have the dice but have long lost/gotten rid of the VHS, so I can't remember who it was that put it out. But I remember liking the tape quite a bit.

I believe it was Steve Draun who put out the VHS on this.

I'm a little picky when it comes to putting dice together for this routine. I don't care for the plastic looking dice with overly round corners. And casino dice don't come in various sizes. That's why I always search Ebay for dice. At any given time you can find bakelite dice of the sizes needed. I've acquired sets in white ( or more specifically off white ), red and green for this routine without spending a ton of money.

If I recall, I think Steve Draun still has the VHS or DVD on this available on his website.

Steve Draun was it! Thanks for the memory jog!

He actually points you to some of the sites listed above, but I do like his stuff as a starting point.

The dice that he included were the ones with the rounded edges, but I never was bothered by them. What I liked about the set was that all of them matched in material and shape.

Finally I got the dice from http://www.dicegamers.com/
I don't have any association or interest with this company, I actuallt found it surfing the web, but the net is they have a bunch of dice, inexpensive, easy web page and fast shipping. This was my first transactions and I am very please.

I got red and green dice with straight sides, they are not casino dice, in different sizes to actually see which ones are better for the Vernon routine.
