See Steven's message above. I have a set of those Amazon-sourced white dice arriving today. It will be interesting to see how well they match the Anverdi white die.

That said, somewhere in this thread one of the employees at Murphy's Magic commented that Murphy's will (eventually) be offering ordinary dice that are an exact match to the Anverdi dice. No timetable was given.

I own the 3 dice linked to on Amazon. They are a very close match but not absolutely identical.
However, I think they are definitely close enough that they should easily fly by spectators, especially with a little time delay.
Also, your chances will obviously be better if they aren’t allowed to see both styles at the same time.
A shuttle pass could be a little risky but likely won’t be a problem with some misdirection.

But keep in mind that “close enough” is subjective. Some might say that no spectator would ever notice a switch while another might say a spec would have to be blind not to notice. But my guess is that most would agree with me. It actually could be considered a benefit that they are not identical so you can easily tell them apart once you know what to look for.

However, it would be nice if Murphy’s releases reasonably priced identical ones although I worry I might accidentally hand out the wrong one.

Blue: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0011WHL4Y
White: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CEFNP6
Red: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0011WMADQ



I received the White dice linked above. The Amazon dice are more of a flat white (the Anverdi Mental Dice are glossy), the pips are smaller on the Amazon dice, AND... the Amazon dice are smaller in diameter.

I measure the Amazon dice at 15.5mm (give or take a smidgeon) and I measure the Anverdi Mental Dice at about 16.5mm. You'd think a 1mm difference wouldn't be noticeable but I feel the difference is quite noticeable.

Hello All -

We will be releasing the exact set without electronic components as "Giveaway Dice".
They will be available very soon and have a very cool method to tell them apart.

Hi Patrick, that's good news.

How about a vibration thumper?

This was previously covered/touched upon. Basically it seems the general consensus is the dice shouldn't be front and center BUT used in conjunction with a routine.

GoDice work via Bluetooth and transmit to an application on your smartphone or tablet. So, here's a tip... When performing with Mental Dice, don't have a smartphone or tablet (or smartwatch) anywhere near the area you are performing.

Further, if/when the Anverdi thumper receiver comes along, the magician/mentalist could even be blindfolded. Heck, he could be naked (except for socks and shoes) and blindfolded. He could even be without socks and shoes if he was willing to get really creative with placement of the thumper! Smile

Thanks, Patrick! My hope is that all 3 colors will be available and that Murphy's will package them for retail in packs of a dozen, 4 of each color.

Here's photos of how I placed the receiver in a Bicycle tuck box.

If people were willing to study up on some escapology concealment techniques you could probably do it nude with the visual display as its small enough and with John Archers Blindfold DVD you could work out a way of doing this blindfolded and nude - personally I am 99% sure NO ONE will want to see me nude - so I will have LOADS of missdirection! LOL

Although I haven't yet got these, the thread itself is fascinating with some great insights and learning.
It is better to be trusted than liked.

Have to admit that I find the sudden interest in regular matching dice rather amusing because just a week or two back right before this Murphy’s product was released I asked about the availability of matching giveaway dice in the other Mental Dice by Marc Antoine thread, and the only responses I received asked why in the world I would need any, that over-proving is silly, I was running without being chased, and that matching dice were unnecessary.

But I know from using PM's Real Die that it’s nice to be able to leave the die with specs in certain situations and also I just like leaving mementos sometimes. On a couple of occasions I’ve even left them “accidentally” as if I just forgot them. So I’m very pleased that Murphy’s will be releasing matching giveaway dice soon. I just hope they are not prohibitively expensive. But the fact that Patrick from Murphy’s is referring to them as giveaway dice leads me to believe they will be on the cheaper side.
