Dice Flight: This has been one of my favorite close-up effects. Very simple to execute, clean looking props, magical transposition.
The performer displays two metal trays and three white dice and one red die. Two white dice and the red die are placed into one of the trays and the other is used to cover them. Looks like a small UFO. The trays are shaken and set on the table. The remaining die is caused to vanish. When the trays are separated, the missing die is found back among the other dice. This can be repeated without fear of detection.
Minor sleight of hand required (a simple French Drop). The rest is mechanical. Comes complete with detailed instructions.
