'I bought ‘Impossible Die’ and it arrived yesterday. It is the most mind blowing, mystifying trick I’ve ever encountered. Even though I know how it is done I’m still puzzled by how it works. It took me only ten minutes to learn. I tried it out on someone who usually works out how I’m doing things but they were totally mystified. I felt like a ‘real’ magician.' Dr Dave Bennett
The performer displays a small wooden box with a clear acrylic top. Inside is sealed a die.
A spectator is asked to try and change the uppermost number on the die by shaking the box, which they find is impossible. The performer then asks the spectator to choose a number between 1 and 6. The performer simply brings the box up to his lips and gives a soft blow over the surface, and the die magically changes to show the selected number!
A baffling effect made all the more powerful as the box can be examined before and after.
Great for interacting with an audience. Have the box passed around from spectator to spectator and watch the puzzled faces of the spectators as they shaking the box, trying to make the die turn round!
Many a story can be told about why the die is sealed inside the box. Is it a memento from a historic game of chance where a man's life hung in the balance, death or life dependent on a single roll of the die.
Combine it with a the Glorpy handkerchief for a truly mysterious effect. The box is placed under a hanky which magically comes to life, rising and falling over the box. When the hanky is still and removed the die has changed to the spectator's number!
Another routine is attributed to Peter Nardi. The box is wrapped in paper from the start and the spectator opens the package revealing the chosen number.
Use another die to chose the number randomly. Are the two dice magically linked? Does one effect the other. A quantum conundrum!
Boxed yourself into a corner? Unable to change? Against all the odds God can change you and your situation!
Here are some presentational ideas for this magical effect.
With God All Things are Possible - Perfect illustration for any Biblical story where someone is stuck in an impossible situation, unable to escape or change their circumstance e.g. Joseph, Paul or Peter when they were imprisoned, the Israelites in Egypt. But God can do the impossible and change any situation.
Meaningless Meaningless! - Is life random and unpredictable, everyday another meaningless roll of the dice as Solomon says in Ecclesiastes? Or is our destiny fixed by Fate, like this die, fixed on one number in this box. The Bible teaches that God has a plan and a purpose for our lives, that isn't limited by our circumstances or. He can change it. He can turn it around.
Gambling with your life- When Jesus hung on the cross the soldiers threw lots for his clothes, using dice. Imagine if we had those dice. Witnesses to the crucifixion. We'd keep them safe. Locked in a box like this. A precious reminder that when our number is up we have the guarantee of a welcome into heaven. Are you willing to gamble, to take a chance that there is no afterlife, that there is no day of judgement?
