Doing what you said is the quickest way of learning because you will be doing these moves unconsciously while watching T. V. This was the fastest way for me to learn 2nd deals and dice palming. Keep up the good work.

That's a good point - having the moves be totally unconscious is key.

Especially being a mentalist who prefers not to be caught doing any sleight of hand, I don't even use moves in performance until I've done them thousands and thousands of times in practice.


Haven't quite decided how I'll use a dice switch for a mind reading effect, but no doubt there are lots of possibilities with gaffed dice and controlled throws.

Most evenings if I'm watching TV or whatever with the Mrs., I'll alternate between false shuffles and deals and dice switches. In fact, watching a show or movie and NOT having something in my hands feels weird...


I feel the same way but I usually prefer to have the Mrs. in my hands, but to each his own.

Really interesting thread, I’ll have to break out some dice and learn the switch. I admit that I haven’t rewarched Jack’s Penguin Lecture since it originally aired (not so fun fact for Gary Plants who was meant to be a cohost was stuck down here in Australia with a broken wrist and I got to meet him...could still do wonderful bottoms). One thing about Jack’s lecture I liked was that it remind me a bit of the Sal Piacante tapes, in that it wasn’t eye candy for its own sake, but actual advice from a guy that has obviously been there.

So, since I can at least do a nice palm switch with 1 die, I made this die. The five used to be a two. A drill and a paint pen and some careful eyeballing, and now I can do some kind of bank night or Russian roulette type effect using a die that has been examined. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt. Too bad I can't do that with casino dice...
