I am looking for a good set of loaded dice. Over the years I have seen a few sets but they all have fives all over them and such. I want loaded dice that look like ordinary dice with all numbers that roll only one number. I have no idea if such a thing exists but any help would be appreciated.

I have a poker effect that I am developing that will use them to tell what their poker hand contains.

I haven't seen any sold anywhere I've gone. But I was looking for the same thing you were, and decided to make some my own. There are a couple of ways to do it, but I'm sure someone here can direct you to a DVD that will teach you how to. Or I'm sure you can find someone to make you some.

my friend has a pair, I need some too since I have like 10 sets of those with 1 number or 2 on the sides :roll: I haven't seen many weighted versions recently but if I do i'll tell ya.

here's one on this page: http://www.poker-chips.net/acatalog/Dice.html i'm guessing by closer inspection they mean when you hold them, since weighted feel slightly awkward sometimes.

these look better in my opinion...

the thing is, even if a die is gimmicked/gaffed, it's not sure fire 100% of the time. the mis spotted dice are actually pretty good, i've had magicians pick it up and ask me where the weight is and not even notice there's a 5 on every side.

but i am getting into dice too, and i would like some loaded dice.. or some kind of ultimate dice gaff. i ordered a bunch of cancelled casino dice, i'm going to try and make a few gaffed dice where i would use shaving, rounding and weight to try and boost the percentage of the number coming up.

i would suggest just finding some information on dice gaffs and trying to make them yourself..

years ago, i also heard that using clear nail polish on one side can act as a good load. (not sure how true it is though)

I know! I bought em and thought they didn't feel like weighted dice (thats what I thought they were) I kept trying to roll like two 1's etc. and it never happened, then my friend pointed out how stupid I was all the sides were the same -.- I laughed so hard at myself :D

I had a set of loaded dice (with mis-spotted sides).
I gave them to my brother to look at, and he was looking inside (they were transparent), and he's like, "Where's the weight....?"
I said, "Dude..........ach! Nevermind!"
It was hillarious.

Unfortunately, my friend told some kid who was in fourth grade at the time, that I would give him the dice if he racked his own balls on a rail from three feet up, and he did it. :roll:
I think it was worth it though! :P

You didn't make the bet, so you don't have to pay up. I don't know about loaded dice, but you can now get a card punch in the SOC. I've already got one on order.

I suppose you're right, but the kid looked like he needed a pair of SOMETHING to replace what he lost, so I figured it was the right thing to do. :lol:
