Came across this very novel creation by Sirus using PPDs, which are Portable Paper Dice, that are unfolded into a playing card reveal.
I am a big fan of combining gambling objects to create routines and that is why I invested in Aldo Colombini’s Card & Dice Deceptions video series, which taught 26 different routines that use a combination of cards and dice. I am sure many of those routines could be enhanced using these new reveal cards. They can also be used as a kicker ending to just about any card and dice routine.
►DIE: Dice Influence Everyone:
The basic effect using this unique prop involves a spectator rolling the paper die three times to form a number which is used to find a card.
To prove that the die influenced all their decisions, the paper die is unfolded to show a duplicate of the selected card.
Comes with two PPDs so you can repeat the routine with a different outcome. Everything is examinable. The PPDs can be carried in your wallet. Use your own deck.

►Card & Dice Deceptions:
Playing cards and dice are two of the most recognizable items that can be used in magic. Everyone knows the properties of both dice and cards as they are universally used in all types of games.
On this two-volume video set Aldo Colombini has collected some of the best routines that logically combine both regular cards and regular dice to form entertaining magic.
Includes demonstrations and explanations to 26 different routines by thirteen creators taught on two-and-a-half hours of video.

You get a 2×2 Rubik type cube with numbers written on the squares. It is actually very difficult to solve a 2×2 cube but luckily you won’t have to do that.
The numbers on the cube are strategically placed so you can use it to perform some very good routines, similar to how dice routines work… but much more deceptively.
You can use the cube for mind reading routines, predictions, forces, and much more. Four routines are taught in the hour-long tutorial but the card at any number is perhaps the best and worth the price of the entire trick.
