Now you see it and HEAR it- now it's GONE!
What's a Sucker Die Box?
It's a trick where you "sucker" your audience into thinking they know how you did it- right up to the surprise ending!
Start by placing an empty hat or other container on your table.
Show your audience a large die and a nicely decorated green wooden box.
Place the die into the hat or container.
As you open all the doors on the box, your spectators can see that the box is really empty!
They can see right through from front to back!
Now you take the die out of the hat, then place the die into the left compartment.
The audience can clearly see that the die is in the box.
Then close all the doors of the green box.
Tell your audience that the block has "disappeared" and tilt the box to the right side.
But of course your audience can hear the die just sliding over into the right compartment!
You open the left hand door to "prove" the block is gone.
Of course, they tell you that the die just slid over into the other compartment!
So you close the door, tilt the box so the audience hears the die slide to the left compartment, and again tell them that the block is gone, opening the right side door this time.
The audience will be very eager to tell you that the die has just slid over to the left- it has not really disappeared.
Or so they think!
And here is where the magic happens!
This time, you open the right side AND the left side doors at the same time- ALL FOUR DOORS ARE OPEN and the box is EMPTY- the die has indeed vanished!
BUT WAIT- THAT'S NOT ALL!
You then reach into the hat that was sitting on your table all along- and the die is back in the hat!
Great effect that makes your audience go crazy!
