Alakazam USA still has 8 in stock, and they are expected to ship on Friday, December 20. Duplicate dice are INCLUDED (and additional duplicate dice are available for purchase)!


I can’t find any mention of duplicate dice at Alakazam USA.
Can you provide a link?

I haven’t seen the Dream lunch routine as I haven’t got these dice .
However I can imagine what the routine involves pretty much so I would say presented well you could take the onus of the dice very easily Gaz 🙂


Yes, Gaz, this is one reason I like it, only uses one dice and it's just part of the presentation, so no heat really

Absolutely. One of the best things about Dream Lunch is that it is not focused on the dice.

The 16mm dice from Amazon (as linked in this thread) are not what I'd call "almost-matching". The aren't same size, they don't have the same size pips, and (with the White dice at least), the gloss does not match.

The 16mm dice from Amazon only "match" because both are dice and both are white. That's where the similarities end.

Ahh, but those are indeed the most important similarities. 😀

Yes, they’re obviously different if you scrutinize them side by side but that is not how they should be viewed by your spectators.
Add a little misdirection and a bit of time delay and I would have no worries pulling off an undetected switch. But YMMV.
Besides, if your specs are that suspicious of the dice as to examine them so closely then there may be something else going on.

I agree, close is good enough for me. I use a die as a giveaway (trick). Not sure of the name of the effect, but you show front and back with hot rod flip, then slow turn and different number appears. This will generate a suitable time delay and results in my giveaway. Excited that my Magic Dice is tracking to arrive today.

AFA giveaway dice, it should soon be a moot point anyway according to Patrick at Murphy’s.
I’m curious what Murphy’s has done to distinguish them from the gaffed dice. Could be a subtle marking, shape difference, or even a difference in weight I suppose.

But I really hope they do a thumper soon too. I would like the added option of that. It would be great for a which hand routine. Oops, forgot, that’s probably putting too much heat on the dice again. 😀

Totally not needed in my opinion

Are the dice included with Mental Dice 10mm or 8mm?

I didn't use a caliper but eyeballing it with a ruler I measured an Anverdi Mental Die at approximately 16.5mm. It might actually be 16.25mm or so. My die is ABSOLUTELY larger than the 15.8mm listed on Murphy's site.

So do I actually. Except my “pebble” is an Oracle stone with a YES and NO carved into opposite sides. You can get them online to help with decision making, kind of like flipping a coin but much more fun and interesting (well, that’s what I tell them anyway.). And my routine revolves around decision making so it makes sense.

But having a cueing device you can feel from a distance would be beneficial IMO and allow for an extra lead-in phase before your mental dice routine should you wish to add it.

But I didn’t mean to imply that a Which Hand routine would be the only reason I would like a thumper addition.
It would make the set more versatile and the idea of mixing methods by getting your cues by both sight and feel has the possibility of canceling out each method which has the potential of adding further mystery to it, as well times you may choose to use the thumper alone.

Agreed if it had a thumper too I would buy it .
My Promystic RD is still going strong and it’s the thumper I love about it the most .
Having both options though would be a big win win imo Gaz 🙂

I wlll be very very surprised if Murphy's doesn't release a thumper.

I agree Mark, I’d be both surprised and bummed.
But I think because it would be so simple to add at this point and they’d really be missing the boat if they didn’t, that I am pretty certain they will.

But from a business standpoint I can understand that they would want to let initial sales die down before they juice it again.

If they do decide to put out a thumper I would hope they take in consideration those who already purchased it prior and get a discount for that addition. Hear us out Murphy!!!!

A discount would be nice but I just hope they would make it compatible with the current set of dice.

Be interesting to see though if they would attempt to make it so it would work with 3 dice simultaneously. My guess is that won’t happen.

I predict that in five years time, new effects will be on the market which proudly boast “Absolutely no electronics involved”! Any spectator under the age of forty will be looking for the app or whatever and will only be perplexed by old fashioned methods.
