Heaths Deciphering Dice

Heaths Deciphering Dice 1927 Royal V. Heath marketed a magic effect called “The Di-Ciphering Trick” based on a math trick developed by Edmund Balducci.  It consisted of these 5 dice cubes bearing a different 3 digit number on each face – 30 numbers in all.  A spectator would roll the dice and the magician would quickly announce the sum of all the numbers.  Quite amazing given that there are over 7700 different  combination of numbers that could show on the 5 cubes.  If you want to know the secret of the dice, you can watch the video, but I don’t want to spoil it for those that may not want to know now.  But, rest assured that if you can do quite simple addition in your head you can used these dice with great effect. Made in Spring Hill with the 7/8″ Dice having numbers deeply laser engraved.  Case with dice measures about 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ x 2″

The first thing you see when looking at any puzzle is the photo or illustration of the completed puzzle. On choosing, remember that the image should have some educational value but also be something the child can relate to. If the image is familiar to the child or fulfills the educational objective (like learning colours or naming objects), the experience of completing the puzzle will be all the more enjoyable, satisfying and productive. The image should be easily recognizable so the child can identify it as something they see around them in their everyday life. It should also have distinguishable features to help them decide where to put the piece so that it ends up in the right place.
