You display two small plastic canisters, each with a red cap, and a single die. You turn toward a spectator and ask, �What if I could read your mind?� You place the die in your spectator�s hand and close her fingers around it. You continue, �Choose any number on the die and place it into the canister with your number facing up. Whatever you do, don�t let me see it�. Keeping your eyes closed, you turn your head to the side while your spectator places the die in the canister. Without looking, you immediately place a cap on the canister.

Crazy Cube Got Me a Gig Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2015
I've had a Crazy Cube for over 30 years and frankly never thought much of it. Afterall, its so easy to do "everybody" knows how it is done - right. Well, I came across my old, beat up one the other day and showed my son how to do the effect. Afterward I tossed it into my bag and forgot about it.

Last week I was at a breakfast meeting about my regular business. I was pitching a contract with a major national company. One the assistants had done an online search for me and discovered that I was also a magical performer. I was asked to do something. I pulled out the crazy cube in my bag.

My patter was that growing a business is a gamble, sort of like rolling the dice. Well what they wanted and needed was someone who could predict that roll of the dice to help them build their company. So I preformed the basis dice read with only the small tube. The CEO demanded that I do it again but let him do everything.

I handed him the small tube, top and dice, turned my back and he placed the dice in the tube, put the top on. I asked him to look at the top, then the bottom. I picked up the larger tube and said, "lets make this even harder so put your tube in to this one upside down." The statement made no sense but worked. I help the larger tube up to eye level at an angle toward the CEO. As he was placing the small tube (top down) into the large I caught the glimpse I needed. Handed his the large tube and the top to close. He held the closed tubes. Then I repeated the divination.

They were convinced. I got the contract no questions and was asked if I'd do a holiday party for their executives and families. I asked for twice my regular fee and they instantly agreed.

I immediately came home and ordered two more just to have on me. The fact that this "cheap trick" has been around forever doesn't mean it cannot be done well and fool people.

The CEO is still telling people that I never touched the tubes and could still tell what his number was.

With so many other things I could have done the Crazy Cube worked. I think mainly because it doesn't look particularly "magical."

Hope this helps.

Absolutely perfect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2012
This is one of my favorite tricks of all time because I never, ever get caught. So far, it is foolproof to the most skeptical people I know who are good at figuring out tricks. I recommend you perform it almost identical to how Oz does in this video, but tell them that they have 5 seconds to put the dice in the container and the cap on. That way they only have time to put the cap on and zero time to figure out the secret.

predictable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2012
All I did was watch the demo and I figured out how it was done, But for $3.00 I figured why not.

When I got it I was a little disappointed how small it was, it's not even big enough to use a regular size dice, it's a small one,

also if your in an enviorment where their isn't a whole lot of light sometimes you can't see the prediction without making it obvious,

I think that the demo was pre established because their is no way to do this trick from the angle Oz was holding this thing

all and all I think I'm going to give this to my seven year old cousin she might like it better than me.

Not Bad Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 6th, 2012
It's not a bad trick for how cheap it is, but I've had times when people have figured it out. Whenever I first saw it, it baffled me, so its still a good trick.

Official B_Magic review! Report this review

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.

Now this is an interesting thing, because for the most part this is a novice effect you can find in kids magic kits and such. But I've actually watched a pro magician working a crowd with this! An adult crowd, and really getting reactions. Just goes to show how important presentation and performance is. This can be a very entertaining effect, but you've got to be willing to put the time and effort into presenting it well.

Don't underestimate this! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This effect is something I am sure many you have seen at a younger age. Because of this, it is QUITE easy to think that this effect is bad, or childish. DO NOT think that.

This is a powerful effect, and in my experience gets JUST as much of a reaction (if not more) than my other, more complex mentalism routines. Predicting a number on a dice that is inside two OPAQUE cases is a feat of impossibility.

Pick this up if you don't have it; if nothing else allow it to be a lesson of that things become classics for a reason. If it wasn't good and didn't get great reactions, it wouldn't be a classic.

I love this trick, it is small and portable. Nobody has figured it out yet. The best part is the low price for a great reaction!

Can Be Better Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 7th, 2016
Indeed it is a good trick - but I felt Oz's routine is too simple/
direct that lacks a flavor, so I did some adjustments that would
make it more interesting/powerful.

- I called 2 people A & B to do this trick:
* A was the one to put the die into the tube box with # he/she
liked
* B was the one told the audiences what # that A picked:
I took out 6 playing Cards with # 2/3/4/5/6/A=1, forced B
to take the right # by doing 2/3 times magician's choices
* then reveal the # on the card he/she took exactly matched
with the # A picked
- Also, I asked the # that A picked to be facing the end of
tube box: then 7 - the # I saw from the cap side = the #
he/she picked/placed on the end side.

I think the above (or other adjustment) would make it more
worthy of watching than just "I feel the number you picked
is (X)".
