Of Dice and Men (Hug/Kill) - magic

Of Dice and Men is Tom Stone’s famous “Hug/Kill” trick.

You bring a participant up on stage and explain that you are going to let the roll of a dice decide how you greet her. She shakes a dice in a cup and calls out the number. “Three!”. You remove the card with the number three from the stand and it says “Hug”. You hug the spectator, accidentally revealing that all of the other cards say “Kill”.

This could be one of the most memorable stage openers there is. It packs small and plays big which is why it has become a staple routine for so many professional magicians around the world. For the first time, it is now available to buy, with everything made to Tom’s exacting standards.

  • Easy to do
  • Packs small
  • Self-working
  • Gimmick included
  • Dice can be examined

Package includes: Gimmick, Dice, Card Stand (collapsible) and full video instructions. You must supply your own cup, or container to shake the dice.

Performing in another language? You can easily substitute the plastic cards for cards that you print yourself.

Customer reviews for Of Dice and Men (Hug/Kill)

Kyle Bassett

This trick is absolutely amazing. I use it in my big live show every month and it never fails to get a hilarious reaction. And is a great way to start a show and let’s the audience know what kind of show they are getting themselves into.

It’s dark, playful but all around hilarious. My routine with it involves me being socialy awkward as a kid ?? I highly recommend this routine to anyone who wants to add some comedic relief in their share ??

This is such a quirky, offbeat effect that I was going to make it up after reading it in "Maelstrom" Fortunately VanInc made life so easy by now marketing their high quality, yet low priced version of the effect. I recently got a great reaction with it - and it is definitely a keeper. One of the best deals of 2018, you will have fun with it!

The trick and the idea itself are brilliant.
Even the "plastic clip" looks not really durable I bought this product here in Germany ($ 80) just to get the permission to perform this trick.
The six plastic sheets are fine but it took more than 3 days to flatten them. The packaging is nice but after you bought it you could not really use it anymore, because you should transport the sheets flat. But it looks nice on my shelf.
I am afraid that the plastic clip will last - as we say in German - "from Monday to high noon". (May be the "Vanishing Inc-Logo" on the clip helps to make it solid ;-)).
I made a new clip of metal to be one the safe side.
The Video is made with an minimun amount of efforts, but the hints of Tom Stone are very useful and he cames to the point.
Even the workmanship is not that good I would give 5 stars for this great idea to Tom Stone.
