Diebolique uses a single ungimmicked die to perform a fantastic effect. It uses a well-known property of a die as a completely novel and potent force.
Let us say you are on a voice phone call with a friend who may be hundreds or thousands of miles away. You propose to perform an experiment over the call itself and your friend agrees. All that is required is that your friend at the other end should have a die with him. From your end it can be totally propless.
In the routine, you apparently use your "yugen" ability to divine an impossible piece of information by apparently listening to the sound of the throw of a single die on any surface at the other end of the phone call. And as for the meaning of the word YUGEN, try googling it and you will see that it has an interesting meaning.
This is so easy that you can start performing as soon as you read the instructions.
METHOD : The basic principle that is used here is very flexible and can be used in many other routines and contexts in different ways.
VENUES : Diebolique can be performed face to face in close-up, parlor, street or stage situations or even can be performed over a voice phone call or on a virtual show.
FEATURES : There are no sleights, no preshow, no stooges or instant stooges. No threads or magnets or electronics are involved. There is no DIY or arts n crafts work involved for the dice. There are no secret writings, no one aheads, no memorization. There are no peeks or any kind of tearing involved, no switching and nothing is spoken or written down by the participant. All you need to perform this is the performer, participant and a single ordinary die.
