If you like the concepts of the effects created by Ton Onosaka, such as Grandpa’s Top Hat or Fish Bowl Mystery (also available at Stevens Magic Emporium), you will really marvel at sheer engineering of Rainbow Dice! I can’t help it – I have to write it – Rainbow Dice is absolutely the definition of “packs flat and plays big!”
The performer displays a large perspective drawing of a die, white with black spots. He passes this behind his back and when it emerges, the color has changed to yellow. Of course, the audience is not impressed because it seems obvious that he simply turned the panel over. After some byplay, the magician turns the panel around-it is yellow on both sides. But wait!
When he turns the panel over again, the other side is now red. He turns it over once more and the other side is green. He offers to take things one step further- He’ll make the die become any color that the audience names. Various colors are called out. What a surprise ending. When the die is turned over, it is now striped with a virtual rainbow of colors!
