For many years Tony Anverdi’s Mental Die was the pinnacle of this type of effect. Since then there have been many versions – some good and some not so good. Easily the best from a collector’s standpoint would be $link(3735,Labco’s Mental Dice), and from a performers standpoint $link(4141,Craig Filicetti’s Multi-Dimensional) is clearly the stand out effect.
However, if you were looking for the best Mental Die available today, in the tradition of Anverdi, then you should look no further than this new item from Magic Wagon. This is a truly beautiful item that looks amazing and uses a crystal clear die to rule out any trickery. It can be examined before, during and after and freely handled throughout the performance.
The system is all remote controlled with visual or vibration notifications and works every single time. You never need to touch it or look at it and yet you can always tell what number is facing upwards.
This is a real beauty and highly recommended for Magic Collector’s everywhere!
Wow! Dave Powell has pulled out all of the stops on this beauty. It looks amazing and is very solidly built – you don’t get the sense if you look at it the wrong way it will break. All the mechanics are very precise and I’m sure this will last for many years to come.
The cards appear very fast and when done with a cascade of other cards from the deck looks quite incredible. The set-up is simple and works precisely the way it should.
I’ve been admiring Dave’s work for a few years now, but this truly is the jewel of his collection. Simply Breathtaking!
Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Performers everywhere and worth every penny!
Thanks for cluing me into this one, Andy. This is a great utility table that can be used throughout the show, all the while concealing a show-stopping effect. It’s so functional, and so attractive, that it is simply above suspicion.
There are many ways to play the fall-apart feature – comedy, misdirection, mentalism, seance – this is no one-trick pony. It’s the type of prop that everybody should have, but almost nobody does.
One last comment – Jos at Mephisto Magic builds shipping crates that look like furniture, and shipping from Belgium was surprisingly inexpensive and took only 4 days. Can I give this six stars?
