It's based on a packet trick from the 70s put out here in the UK by Ken Brooke, Bruce Cervon's 'Dirty Deal', a classic of packet tricks. Ken did a beautiful dem of it that sold it on sight - he would drop each changed card onto the floor in a circle around his feet rather than use a table. Also his set of cards had more visually arresting pictorial backs, rather than the different coloured bicycle backs in this version.

Martin Breese bought the rights and reissued it in the 90s. I have an idea Joe Stevens carried it, but I'm not sure it is currently available anywhere.

The Cervon routine uses the Hamman Count throughout; this version seems to use the Elmsley Ghost Count, but the effect is the same. It's a beautifully constructed routine with a killer finish.

Agreed. I have long performed Nick Trost's "Razzle Dazzle" which unfortunately doesn't seem to be on the market anymore. I would love to get a couple of fresh sets in poker size.

"Dazzle" is similar (and still available) but is too drawn out a routine IMO.

I did some investigating using Google and Google Translate. That let to "Card Chameleon by Darrow" which still isn't correct.

However, that ultimately led me to what I believe is the final answer!

This beautiful routine is "Cardboard Chameleons" by Daryl!

Daryl continues to amaze and entertain us from beyond.

Daryl passed away last year. If you want to purchase this effect, then I recommend doing so direct from his website which is still being managed (you can email them to make sure). Buying this way will have the greatest benefit to his surviving family.

Here's the link:

Thanks
I love Daryl...I have cardboard chameleons by him, and a beautiful autographed picture he sent to me which I cherish in light of recent events
It's not cardboard chameleons because it's the last card you end up with having a completely different back to anything else is what I love..... Surely someone must know this actual trick and where I can get it darn it!!!
