I'll agree with Crazy Cube. If you're a good actor this little trick gets some of the best reactions you'll ever see.

Every time I've done this it gets genuine gasps. I love it.

Could someone explain to me (perhaps via PM) what the exact difference is between a sure-shot dice box and an Eli dice box? Thanks!

Alexander, the two effects are two different props entirely. Both work with different methods. The Sure Shot dice box works with 2 dice, Eli dice box works with 3 dice.
Both or numerical revelations, but accomplished by different methods. PM me for any hidden information on them, any other information should go into Secret sessions
as not to make public to everyone.

Another die effect I like,
Get 2 dice rolled with your backed turned,
Spectator adds both up,
He or she then chooses any one and looks at the opposing end and adds that to the total,
He or she throws that die again and adds that to the total,
With your back turned ask for the total, deduct 7 and that will give the total of the 2 dice currently showing upwards.
You will also be able to tell them it’s a 4 and 4 showing.
Example 4 and 2 thrown = 6 Spec adds the reverse of the 2 ie 5 so total so =11
Then throws the 2 and gets another 4 so total is now 15 which is announced to you.
deduct 7 = 8 and you can tell them that 2 x 4,s are uppermost on both die.
If it’s 9 there is a way of knowing whether it’s 5/4 6/3 but too long to explain here.
Enjoy Olly

Where can this effect be found? (Book, dvd, lecture notes)? Sounds like a fairly mathematical system but not overly hard to do in your head.


That's Mental Die-Mensional By Sudo : http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/11183 A nice piece of magic with 2 standard dice. Not too mathy. Enjoy!

"It's the Rules", by Bob Sheets. It takes Dr. Sacks to the next level.

There is Winners Dice by Secret Factory, more of a gimmick than a trick but a few tricks are shown on the trailer. It is not using ordinary dice but it rolls normally if you want it to so it could be used for many other dice effects I would think.

Do you believe in Chance by Jan Forster is an absolute game-changer for me.

Best dice matrix in my opinion: Charlie Frye's Dice Matrix on Eccentricks Vol 1

Second best dice matrix in my opinion: Steve Dacri Dice Routine on Magic of Steve Dacri No Filler Volume 2. A dice matrix with one of the dice escaping/teleporting from a box during the matrix.

James Lewis' version of the Dr. Sack Routine is not only my favorite dice routine , it's also my "go to" routine if I'm asked to do a trick. This came out on VHS about 25 years ago and, as far as I know, never made it to DVD, so as time has passed I suspect it's been forgotten and is pretty much unknown by newer magicians. The reactions I get from a seemingly simple trick are what performing magic is all about.

The recently released book, "Dice Mysteries" by Steve Drury, may be of interest.
