Hi Guys..where are you 'hiding' your receiver?got mine stuck in the bottom of a cigarette packet in my top pocket..
Reason? I can leave my packet anywhere on or around the table, as no-one would 'touch' your fag packet !!

Yeah, here in the states anyone doing that might get a stern retort.

Perfect to use with Andy Nymans "DICEMAN" cards... take the heat off the dice...

example ...you show six numbered cards and turn them over without even asking the spec what his number was...

On the number he rolled in secret , the back of the card says "BE NICE" . On the other five it says "KILL". And the special cards can be examined. Or you can make your own after buying DICEMAN .( with another message). Yes there are only six cards in play at the end and you are clean. The cards are laminated as well and can be on the table in view the whole time

My thumper is always in my sock it’s the second most sensitive part of the body . The other time I put it somewhere else when I was doing magic at a fancy dress New Years Eve party 2018 ( I went as James Bond / Daniel Craig in just swimming trunks ) and let’s say it certainly created a buzz Gaz 🙂

I received mine today and I'm very happy with them. They work very well and I can't wait to perform something with them. My blue die has two or three little chips in some corners. Hopefully this won't get worse, but I read in this thread that chipping might not be an issue with the Anverdi dice, so I am trying to be confident. Smile

Sounds like you bought a second hand set. There shouldn't be any chips.

There are just two small white dots in two different corners. They are really small and I probably wouldn't have noticed without carefully investigating the dice. If it's not getting worse this won't bother me. The other two dice have no issues at all.

Brand new or used set?

It‘s new from a magic dealer. The receiver had the foil on it and it looks new, so nothing suspicious except that little chip (checked it again and it’s only in one corner, the other thing I spotted was something a could rub off, haha)

They should be perfect. Sometimes dealers resell returns or take the product out and play with it before selling on. If the chips annoy you then ask for a replacement asap. Don't leave it and regret it later. You paid a lot.

Indeed some dealers do that and it really annoys me! OUTRAGEOUS!! When you buy from a dealer and you are not buying something listed as used, it should be brand new in the unopened package.

I have stopped buying from dealers who do that. Curious to know where you bought it...

I don't want to post the name publicly as I don't know why the die has this little chip. I'll write you a pm.

I contacted the dealer. As I said - it's not a big problem right now, because the chip is really small. But I am a bit afraid that maybe later this will cause some trouble.

Thank you all for your replies.

Strange because I thought the colors were solid throughout and therefore couldn’t chip off.
Perhaps this is a manufacturing defect.

If the surface is chipped then the entire surface will be subject to more cracking in the future. Like when you get a chip in your car windscreen. I'd strongly recommend getting a replacement while you can.

I've rattled my Anverdi dice around in a glass cup (hard surface) and my dice still look brand new. I don't see how it's possible for them to chip. I suspect dino's dice have a manufacturing defect, not damage from use. The "chips" have probably been there since they were made. Any reputable dealer should be happy to replace them.
