The performer shows six dice. Each die has six faces of different colors and each colored face has a different two digit number on it. While the performer has his back turned, a spectator throws the dice on the table, and then randomly turns some of them over so that all of the colors on the faces are all different. When the performer turns around in just a fraction of a second, he is able to calculate the total of all six two digit numbers on the top faces.
But that’s not all, As the performer will also be able to calculate the total of the top faces of the dice even if they are partially, or totally hidden from sight, and even before the dice are even thrown!
These wonderful dice can be used in both Close-Up and Stage Performances and are also adaptable for different styles of presentations( incredible instant calculation, clairvoyance, precognition). Each time the effect is performed, the total will always be different from the previous ones and the dice can be freely examined by the spectators.
The Birthday Deck
The Birthday Deck is the ultimate trick for strolling or close-up magic when you would like to give away a special memento to a person having a birthday.
You ask the person having a birthday if they received the birthday card you sent them. When they say no you bring out a deck of bicycle cards casually showing them front and back asking them to choose their own “birthday card.” You write a little birthday message on the card and place it in their hand. You remind them that they could have chosen ANY birthday card, again showing both front and backs of the rest of the deck, but they chose the card in their hand. They turn it over and now has a real birthday card printed on the back.
For the finale they blow on the rest of the deck like they are blowing out candles and all the other cards turn blank.
