Dice of Poseidon by Magic Wagon(c. 2014) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I’m not so sure of the story line for this item and it uses water which most of the time is just a pain. However, it works amazingly well and is very clever. In fact, Magic Wagon give directions where you just use one die but I have done it perfectly fine with two and even three. Two is probably the safest but with some practice I think three is also very possible. Of course predicting two or three dice is much more impressive than just one.
The key thing is that the dice can be shaken up many times in the glass and on the tabletop and they will always show different numbers, but when you pour the magic water (Poseidon’s) in, you can always predict the numbers. It is very cool to watch.
Not for everyone, but a clever principle indeed!
Effect: A beautiful stand which has a see-through bottom along with a clear glass cylinder and a die are displayed. The performer then places a sealed prediction on the table and asks the spectator to give the die a few rolls to make sure it is a regular die and place the die into the cylinder. The performer then tells the story of Poseidon and slowly stirs a glass of water with mini brass Trident. Now, he instructs the spectator to pour the water into the cylinder. When completed, the spectator is asked to open the prediction and read it aloud. To everyone’s surprise, the number on top of the die matches perfectly with the prediction! Everything can then be handed out for examination.
What’s nice about it is that the effect is entirely self-working and happens in the spectator’s hands! The performer is absolutely nowhere near the stand or even the die during the performance.
- The effect can be performed with any numbers from 1-6.
- The effect can be performed completely surrounded.
- The effect is entirely self-contained – No palming or sleights of any kind.
Please do not confuse “Dice of Poseidon” with any other gimmicked dice we have previously produced. Each set has been painstakingly hand-crafted by a skilled craftsman using the total of three different manufacturing processes for gaffing each die which are very unique and really complicated to produce.
