This is just amazing!
I had the chance to play with the dice when I visited Murphys and they are very responsive and the display makes it super easy to see both the numbers and the colors.
The price is also impressive considering that you are getting 3 dice.

At first I was excited for this one... that price I wouldn't say it's impressive in a good way... $425.00??? That's crazy for a dice effect for me... Two year warranty is nice.

Price point doesn't make sense to me, but looks like a great effect.

This is much cheaper than Promystic's RD and you get three dice. So, it's all relative, I guess.

What I'm wondering is will I be able to see the colors in the display easily? I'm a little color blind. Smile

This is great. I was shown it over Skype. Definitely a more cost friendly version of RD. Having multiple die definitely give you an advantage, by being able to use a larger group of spectators.

Why is Murphy’s and Titanas intent on always copying someone else’s creations?

I think we all know the reason. It’s sad.

Is this an original idea? The die idea certainly goes back to Anverdi, but let’s be crystal clear about who invented the unique sealed die.

Yes yes, Titanas will claim that this new version is just a teeny bit different: it has a different receiver display etc.

Personally I won’t spend a penny on Murphy’s copies because they do not support creators and originality in magic. Character matters. I’m not the only one who feels strongly about this.

“But this is cheaper!”

So what? I support creators. Murphy’s should too. They are the used car hucksters of our little community.

Happy holidays.

For the record, this isn't a Murphy's produced product. They only shot the trailer.

If you keep 2 dice out of range you could still do it with one die right?

I'm with Brett on this one, 100 percent. Sticking a 600 hp engine in a Yugo does not make it a Bugatti. No one, I repeat, NO ONE, stands behind their products like Craig.

I'm not rolling the dice on any product other than Promystic's. Craig's products are second to none when it comes to reliability. Craig is also second to none when it comes to customer service. When I buy from Craig I know I am not just getting the product, but that I am getting guaranteed customer service should I experience a problem. That to me is worth what I paid, and is also why I will do my business with Promystic and not the knock offs.

I've been a Promystic customer since the beginning. I think I may have been one of the first twenty or so people to have purchased MD. I am a huge Promystic supporter. Craig and I have had a long relationship over the years.

But, I've also dealt with Marc Antoine on several products including his Rising Card, and he was great. He's in France, so it's a little harder to communicate, but I think Marc is doing his very best as far as customer service is concerned.

"Mental Dice" looks like a great product to me. And, it is a little different than RD. Three dice - different colors, etc. I don't see this as a "rip-off" myself. Perhaps I'm wrong?

I've been a Promystic customer since the beginning too and do not understand the whining here... c'mon people grow up.

Craig is focused on his products and that's it, never seen him whining... why not? Because he is first class and understands business.

Back to Topic... This is GREAT! Can't wait to get my hands on this 3 lovely dices Smile

Congratulations Marc!

Does anyone know if these dice are rechargeable? If not, how long will they last?

Does anyone know if the receiver vibrates or is only visual?

Looks great The demo looks great I have preordered from Saturn magic as I love the use of 3 dice makes it a littel nicer with a group. I have a lot of promstic products which are excellent as well.

Very excited to work this

Besides the color and number. I think it's too gimmicky.

I have some really cool ideas for this. I don’t own it but I’m very tempted. The price seems very fair too.
