I just recieved mine. They are wonderful. I have only one complaint. They come in red, white and blue. If I were to write the numers down in the color of the dice, a white marker won't work on white paper (obviosly). This is not a big complaint, but something that they could change in the future.

Black dots = black pen. Solved it for you.

You could use black cardbord with colored pencils or a little blackboard with colored chalk...

The blackboard with colored chalk would be a 😎 solution for me 👍

Red and blue don't show up well on a black board, especially in low light.

Using black dots makes things more complicated. Not worth it.

This is NOT a huge deal, but I don't see them working.

BTW, who uses chalk besides magicians? I am not a retro-magician. Need to look up-to-date.

Use a business card that is white on the front and black on the back

Or something larger using the same principle, that should work ..

With regard to looking up-to-date I would propose a scribble/notepad app on your smartphone/tablet.

Magic Dust, I'm not sure what you are talking about.

Cebulon, a tablet is too small for stage, which is what I was talking about. Sorry, I should have said that.

For white, use black marker and make outline of number. The pad becomes the white.

I now had several situations where the dice had no signal. I was completely lost and had to talk for a long time hoping that they get a signal again. I was able to save myself. But for a gig they are way too risky what I experienced. The distance today was about 1 meter and there was nothing. I told the spec to roll again and then the other die had no signal.

Maybe something is faulty with my set?

Sounds like interference from another device.

Did it work at a different location?

I have heard of this happening too, but I have not experienced it.

When getting close to performing, be sure to turn the receiver on in advance and make sure all of the dice are responding. Then quickly press & release the receiver button to put everything to sleep. The dice stay connected but everything is in a low power mode. Another quick press of the button and everything is ready to go.

Using the sleep function, I've not had any issues with a die losing connection. Only when first turning them on (from complete power off) have I (a couple of times) had a die that didn't want to respond as quickly as the other two.

Thank you guys. I will try what Mark said. Sometimes they work well, sometimes they don’t. Maybe it’s a bit difficult when several people have their bluetooth activated?

Does anyone know of the best place to learn routines for this? I know a couple come on the instructions, but aside from the 'Here are some dice, roll them and I will tell you what number is on them', I would be keen to see some routine/performance ideas

Thanks

I really like this one by Timon Krause:

Having Mental Die, decided to purchase Mental Dice, as Thumper has, for me, a distinct advantage over a need to p**k. I'll be performing this in conjunction with Magic Wagon's Mini Diceolation - spectator rolls dice under a hank to an unknown number. I hand Mini Diceolation box to him, to check uppermost number inside. He then removes hank, to discover he has rolled dice underneath to the same number. Incidentally, I perform fo pleasure, not income - although used to work for a number of years at Davenports, demonstrating & selling.
