This pack contains 5 trick dice and 1 identical-looking regular one. You can tell them apart by examining the pattern of spots.
High Thrower and Low Thrower : The High Thrower always throws a high number because it only has 4s, 5s and 6s on it. The duplicated numbers are on opposite sides to each other, and since only 3 sides of a cube can be seen at any one time, the die will appear normal whichever angle it is viewed from. The Low Thrower is its complement. This one always throws a low number because it only has 1s, 2s and 3s on it. The person throwing the high thrower will always beat someone using the low thrower. It’s not difficult to work out why, but you will be amazed how seldom the deception is spotted. Most dodgy dice combinations have an element of probability, but this pair guarantees 100% success.
Double Six and Double One : The Double Six has an extra 6 instead of a 1, and the Double One has an extra 1 instead of a 6. The extra number is always on the opposite face to its double, so they are never visible at the same time. Only a close examination will give the game away. This small change makes a huge difference. Out of 36 throws, you can expect the Double Six to win 26 times, draw 4 times, and lose only 6 times. Great for students of the laws of probability ……. and cheats!
‘Opposites not Seven’ Die : ‘Everybody knows’ that the opposite sides of a die add up to seven, so wouldn’t it be handy to have one which doesn’t have this property? Used in conjunction with a similar looking regular die, there are many ways a magician can exploit this situation. This die has opposite sides: 1/5 2/4 3/6. It looks normal when viewed from the 1,2,3 corner or the 4,5,6 corner.
Regular Die : This is a normal die which is the same colour and size as the other trick dice – in other words, it can’t be told apart from the trick ones! …. Lull your victim into a false sense of security!
I designed the optional leather case myself. I cut three straps from good quality leather, interweave them, then lock them together with an eyelet. A brass press-stud and stainless steel split ring complete this stylish and practical travel case.
