PROS

I just love this effect. It comes with three dice and the craftsmanship is superb. It also comes with a booklet and a link to a private video. The video is to the point, but excellent instruction. It’s not fancy video and editing, but the content is great. In the Suggestions section, we are going to talk about how to combine this with ideas from Axel Hecklau for a killer routine.

This is very easy to perform. You can do it with some simple sleights or without depending upon which methods you employ. He teaches both ways.

It is suitable for close-up, walk-around, parlor, and stage.

CONS

I just can’t think of any warnings here. It is a great variation from card or coin tricks.

VERDICT

Great prop and great effect. Highly recommended

Suggestions from the Reviewer

To really entertain people, it is nice to be able to have a string of routines, one that leads into the next. So, in this bonus, I’m going to share a few different effects and routines that I think make for a really good combination.

First, I really like starting out with the Die-Namic routine with a borrowed bill. Borrow as large a denomination as you can. Start high, say hundred, and work your way down. "..Surely, someone will at least have a twenty." Let’s assume you get a twenty. Do the borrowed bill Die-Namic routine with a borrowed glass and a die.

As a bit of comedy, if there are people drinking and no one has an empty glass, you can either entice them to chug their drink or you can borrow someone’s glass and chug it yourself. Use your discretion.

Next, go into your pocket to leave the die and come out with a TT with a dollar bill inside. Transform the twenty into a dollar. You can do all sorts of gags with the loaner of the twenty, such as reminding them that they are going to get their ten back and later reminding them not to worry about their five, and then turning their twenty into a one.
Pocket their twenty as a final load for the final phase.

Next, borrow any non-see-through cup and do a chop cup routine with the die. I use a modified Sanada Gimmick. I modeled my routine after Axel Hecklau’s chop cup routine. You can see it on his Penguin Live lecture. As a final load, the twenty appears under the cup in the hand of the participant who loaned you the twenty.

Happy magic trails to you.

Manufacturer's Description:

A spectator holds an empty glass horizontally, one hand over the mouth the other over the bottom leaving no way in. A dollar bill is draped over the side of the glass and a large die balanced on top. You peel the bill away and the spectator actually sees the die drop into the glass. Martin’s handling is clean and easy.

Die-Namic also includes Ken Allen’s original instructions in which a die penetrates a borrowed beer coaster or deck of cards set over the mouth of a glass - or visibly into an empty, sealed mason jar. And many other ideas.

Everything you need to know is detailed in the included instructions. However, purchasers receive a secret code that unlocks an online instructional video.
