-====== Dice in Matchbox Force ====== 
-The idea of placing dice into a matchbox of a size that allows them to rattle but not to turn appears in "The X-Ray Trick" by J. Whitehead, in Bagshawe'​s //Magical Monthly//, August 1925. The method in which the matchbox drawer is secretly divided, with a pair of loose dice on one end and a pair of fixed dice on the other was described by U. F. Grant in his "Dice and Match Box Mystery"​ in the October 1929 issue of //​[[http://​​display/​38575/​The+Sphinx/​36|The Sphinx]]//. This is the earliest reference discovered to date.
