Professional (non) Forcing Dice - set of 3
NOT Weighted... please read the description to see why these are better than weighted/loaded die.
A MUST have item for all Pro mentalists... please read below to see what’s different about this special set of dice! This should be in the arsenal of every working or amateur mentalist as it’s such a versatile prop!
It’s a set of 3 dice... none of which has the number 5 on it.
This means that 5 is the force number.
Because the number 5 can never be rolled it will always be the remaining number out of 6 numbered objects / items / envelopes etc.
OK... so WHAT MAKES THIS SET DIFFERENT to other similar sets on the market!?
Usually, on a forcing die, there would be no number 5 and in its place there would be an extra number 2.
This is true for one of the dice... the PROBLEM with having 3 identical dice would mean that between them there are six numbers 2’s that can be rolled... unfortunately that means that the number 2 shows up way too often to appear random! This can sadly ‘tip off’ the audience as to the fact there is ‘something up’ with the dice.
What my set does is eliminate the number 5 from each die BUT, one has two number 2... one has two number 1… and one has two number 6.
This makes this particular set of forcing dice much MUCH more fooling than the standard sets!
I have personally been using this idea for many years to great effect.
I very much hope you will see the value in my addition as I truly believe this classic prop has now become super deceptive and much harder to ‘back-track’ in the minds of the audience.
Six envelopes are displayed, all of which as said to contain a lucky fortune. Three dice are introduced and rolled a few times by the spectator to show that they are indeed regular. The envelopes are now mixed up by the spectator and handed back to the performer. They are placed out in a row. The performer gestures to the envelopes in their order stating that they are now numbered 1 to 6 and that five people will get a fortune and leave himself (the performer) with which ever fortune is not chosen.
The dice are handed to the first spectator who rolls and then gets to choose which number out of the one rolled that he gets to keep for himself. He rolls, he chooses. This is repeated 4 more times (either with 4 different people…or one person 4 more times) until just one envelope if left. This last envelope becomes the performers fortune.
Each envelope is opened and the comedy fortunes are read out loud. Once the laugher has died down, the performer reads his fortune…
“He who gets the last envelope… gets the last laugh” your envelope is then shown to also contain a £20 note.
