Yes I own their dice, and it was me that first pointed out that estooge are the people behind godice. That said my estooge dice are still working fine and fit perfectly with the routine for which I purchased them which relies as much on the magnet detector feature as the numbers. GoDice and other similar products which predate godice will have no impact on the routine.

My red and white dice hold a good charge. I charged them and a week later they were still 90%. The blue dice will only stay charged for maybe a day. Then dead. If I charge it prior to use, it will last the entire performance no problem. Those of you who have this should check yours and make sure you don't end up with a dead one in performance.

I would send the whole set back as that is not right and it will only get worse Gaz 🙂

Charged mine on Monday and have used them once since. All three dice still show 9. when turned on.

I must say that Customer Service is exemplary. I have full confidence they will take care of it. I'm sending the blue one back and a new one is on the way to me!

That’s good news , I didn’t realise they could send them back out as singles .
Either way you never want any electronic device to be right on its margins once switched on at a gig Gaz 🙂

Whose customer service are you referring to?

So I assume that the instructions will be a download? I ordered from Hocus-Pocus, they don't send out the link. Waiting.....lol



Hocus-Pocus would be my guess ? Best wishes Gaz 🙂

Fair enough , I assumed you would go back to where you ordered it from .
I would incase all 3 are from a dodgy batch and eventually go wrong .
It explains how they are able to send just the one though Gaz 🙂

I think it is so important for any magic company to stand behind their products 100%. It gives you confidence in purchasing from them again. Those are the companies that you continue to purchase your effects from. In my opinion, Paul Gross from Hocus-Pocus is one of the best gentleman to do business with. Years ago I wrote to Paul about an effect that I purchased that did not live up to the promises in the ad. Paul immediately wrote back to me and offered a reasonable solution. That's the way you keep customers coming back for more. Thanks Paul for running a great business. Kudos to you.

Thank you for clarifying Mark!
I’ve read about the GoDice and estooge connection at another place.

Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

To be clear: the video posted above by the new user in his first post Smile is Antoine’s statement on the who-came-up-with-these-dice-mess. And two reason’s why you shouldn’t buy them from Murphy’s.

Just to chip in - It seems to me that Murphy's have released Marc Antoine's product and not Anverdi's.

But more interesting to me - would people prefer the trick came in a brown envelope rather the fancy box and save £20?

This is absolutely correct, and even what Marc Antoine is stating is mostly correct, apart the fact that the German producer (which I know personally) did already steal Craig Filicettis original ideas. And to make it clear: As I still believe in honesty and want to live up to that I would never buy the so called „Anverdi Dice“. I will only support the original creator(s). I am also very disappointed about a few „big“ names out there (no big names for me anymore, they seem to be more immoral cretins as at least they should have known better...) who let other allow to abuse their „good“ (?) names in order to praise obvious plagiarisms. And I also consider never to buy anything from any dealer who was supporting this plagiarism.
If there would be enough moral persons amongst us we would have a chance to educate these only money driven gravediggers of our art. But following this thread I know it is only a dream. But at least it could adjust my estimation and opinion about a lot of people which I thought I know. Jan

Hi Jan,

Please don't take it out on the dealers, they have little choice but to deal with a distributor who has a monopoly on most magic products. Plus they have the demands of the market and their consumers who wish to buy hyped products. If they took too high a moral stand they wouldn't last a week.

Change needs to happen through out the supply chain.

I do not agree... nobody is forced to take ALL a big distributor is offering... This is too easy. And BTW, if 75% of all dealers would disappear it wouldn't be of any loss. Jan

A lot are forced.
Every dealer that has a 'warehouse' is joined at the hip with the one distributor.

The only solution is for a dealer to make enough from their own products.
