Hey, Ryan, I resemble that remark! :)
The best die box routine I have ever come accross in print was published by Robert Parish in "Great Tricks Revisisted". He published several clever routines for stand up magic that are suitable for all ages. His opening line of the die box routine is hilarious!
Although it's old hat (pun intended) to magicians, I would not sell the die box short in terms of its deceptiveness, even for adults. As Parish points out, there are some pretty sophisticated magic principles (shell principle, black art, aural misdirection, etc.) at work here. I also think the humor of the trick flows naturally from the effect, which helps lead to it's classic appeal.
I still prefer a pack of cards, but I'm not ashamed to say I pretty much destroyed my original die box from performing it so often (for adults and kids) over the years.
