Shift the spots on a die to an impossible position.
Dr. Sack's dice routine is in the pockets of many performers for a reason-it's a time-tested classic. And while the ending as it was first described is good, it leaves a lot of magicians wanting a little something extra.
That's where a gentleman from Texas named Ronnie Ramin comes in. He solved the problem in the most amazing way to date. Ronnie keeps the best features of the Sack routine and then adds the ending that it has always needed.
Unlike anything before it, with Crooked you finish by really moving the dots on a die to a new position (an odd position!) and then handing it out for examination in this new, impossible condition.
Crooked is produced by TRCKY and comes with three dice, a natural linen bag to carry everything (stamped with a tribute to Dr. Sack) and a DVD explaining Ronnie's routines. The DVD also includes effects by David Regal and Rich Aviles, plus much, much more.
A quick and simple single-die routine.
Expanding on the classic Dr. Sack routine with two dice, and Ronnie's killer new ending.
Les Scheyer's Dice Interlude
A very cool intro to any dice routine, and a magical way to show all six sides of a die.
David Regal's Spot Remover
David kindly allowed us to include his wonderful one-die effect on the DVD. This is great!
Rich Aviles' Die Easy
Rich streamlined Ronnie's two-dice effect and added a devious method to clean everything up at the end.
Rich's Visible Slide
This allows you to get one-ahead while you appear to visibly slide one of the spots on a die to a new location.

The dice that came with my set were not correct. Minor issue that Penguin corrected. The dvd is ok
but if you don't have previous experience with the Sachs routine, you will probably have difficulty
learning the necessary moves from this dvd as the moves are taught fairly quickly and, more
importantly, Ronnie uses a grip that is different than the grip generally taught with the Sachs
routine. I think his grip is unnatural looking and less deceptive than the traditional grip so not
sure why he chose to use that grip. The routine itself is pretty good, especially if you like the
idea of ending with mis-spotted dice.
