The performer displays a small walnut box with a dice sealed within. The dice can be seen through the clear acrylic top.
A wonderful and colorful story about Badlands Bob begins to unfold. Sadly, he lost his life on the roll of this very die!
A spectator is asked to try and change the uppermost number on the dice by shaking the box, which he soon finds is impossible. The performer then asks the spectator to choose a number between 1 and 6. “If you were Badland’s Bob, which number would you have chosen?”
The box is simply pushed toward the spectator and behold, the uppermost number now matches the spectator’s selected number!
No switches; there is a hidden gimmick, but easily concealed. Any number between 1 and 6 may be used as there is no force. Instantly resets and therefore is a great walk-around effect. It can be examined.. No awkward moves; done right under their noses.
