I received as a gift Magic Makers' Mystic Chips. I was not familiar with this trick although I had seen it advertised but never performed. Pretty neat...
Solid brass and very well made and easy to perform.
I have shown it to 2 people that have not a clue after examining everything. Does anyone here use this or a similar effect? Maybe wrong topic, if so my apologies.

Got it. Its not bad but doesn't realy fit in with other close up tricks.

It would work best, as a 'warm-up' effect for mentalism in a one on one or small group where you miss a 1-2 times and then start hitting with a higher and higher percentage. If you talk it up as just that,a warm up tool for psychics, it will sell the next couple of mentalism effects so well you won't believe it. Down side- its small and can only be seen by a few spectators at a time.

I was going to mention that you should know where it stops when its empty as well as give it a shake before revealing the answer. I had a couple folks try leaving it empty and one guy loaded it with dimes and pennys. In both cases I was ready, and it came out stronger than before with the color. Like I said it needs to be sold as a testing/warm-up device or you will get the same type of trip up moves pulled on you. As long as the Specs think they are helping and you make them an equal in the 'warm up and testing' process it will work very powerfully on their minds to set them up for other things.
...think not that all wisdom is in your school. You may have studied other paths,but, it is important to remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, there is always more to learn.

It is more of a novelty effect for me as I normally don't do anykind of mentalism. I just enjoyed the concept. Thanks for the post. Good ideas...
