Mind Chips by Mikame Craft, Tony Lackner

(c. 2001) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

This is basically a copy of the the effect created by Tony Lackner and Eckhard Boettcher called Mental Chips and used in Bank Night Gone Wrong.

Effect: You cannot find a magic trick using color chips that is more simple and clear in effect than this MIND CHIP. It is really so simple. All the excessive factors have been removed from the old routine and a new amazing trick has been born.

The color of the performer’s chip and that of the spectator’s always coincide with each other, just like the coincidence of two sympathetic hearts.

    Another interesting item by Mikame

    This is nice piece. The wood work on the cup is classic Mikame workmanship and very well done. However, my main disappointment are the chips–I would have preferred the chips to have been made in wood rather than the cheaper looking plastic…oh, well. The effect is well described by any dealer on the web.

    I love this effect!

    This is a very simple and clean prediction effect that looks great and is very reasonably priced. Mikame Craft have thought of everything on this one. Reset is easy, the turned wood box for the chips is a delight and each move in the routine makes perfect sense.

    The basic effect is this: you show the box, tip out the 6 chips, place one on the top of the box as your prediction, then spread out the other 5 face down on the mat. The spectator chooses any one and it is stacked on top of your prediction chip. You then show the other 4 are all different colors, and turn over their chip and the prediction chip and they match. There are no sleights and there can be a different result for repeat performances and reset is a few seconds.

    The chips are made of a heavy plasic that will last a lifetime, and it is true that it would be nicer if they were made of wood but for the price its really hard to fault this effect. The reason they are using the plastic chips is because the chips were marketed separately as a different effect and all that Mikame have done is add the box. But by adding the box they turn this into a wonderful little piece and make use of the box in a number of ways that ensure the prediction is clean and smooth.

    I highly recommend this effect!

    A Quick Addition for Multiple Performances

    I love this trick. It comes with two possible outcomes in color selection. (I am trying not to give anything away here.) To be able to have both available to me, I cut a "false bottom" out of black felt. That way, I can store the alternative color chip in the bottom of the box and still have it immediately available if someone says, "Hey, do that one with the chips again." This would make this trick more useful for walk around.
