Removing Coins from a Dice Tower: No Magic--Just Physics
Vollmer, Michael; Mollmann, Klaus-Peter
Physics Teacher, v51 n4 p212-213 Apr 2013

Here is a very simple experiment that can be done with a whole group of students. I learned about it from an activity in a science center, where it was posed as a magical puzzle. (Contains 4 figures.)
