Die-Lemma by Steve Dusheck

(c. 1986) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

John Cornelius of San Antonio, Texas was the first to use this principle with his Pinnacle Slate which he sold through his John Cornelius Creations company. Magicians were quick to see the possibilities of John’s discovery and soon many forms of it began to appear without a ‘tip of the hat’ to John. (George Robinson – 6/2/2019)

Effect: This is a demonstration of mindreading. A mentalist asks an audience member to think of a number on a die as depicted. The mindreader turns his back to the volunteer and has him place the die with his thought of number uppermost in a square hole, slightly larger than the size of this die, in the center of a beautiful wooden card case which contains playing cards from ace through six of one suit. The chooser of the number than picks up the die and holds it in a tight fist.

Next, the menalist turns to face the volunteer and removes the playing cards from this case, displaying them to be numbered ace through six. After a bit of concentration, the mindreader removes a card and turns it face up and it amazingly is the thought of number.

There is absolutely no force and the effect can be instantly repeated before the same audience; therefore, it is an instant reset. The method is ingenious, based upon a John Cornelius idea. This is also a super rare item and extremely difficult to find!

    Five Stars for Ingenuity!

    Steve Dusheck might not be the best craftsman in the world, but his ideas are second to none. This is an old item that I managed to track down again and I love it. It is not made as well as I would like from a Collector’s point of view, but it is a very clever idea and works perfectly.

    The effect allows you to tell which number they select on the die without any funny peaking or moves. Instant reset too. Very clean.

    I’d love to see this made in Walnut or something similar – I wonder if my good friends over at the Trickery are listening?

    Wonderful Effect!
