A brass container, lid, and five different colored chips are introduced. With the magician’s back turned, the spectator is asked to select a chip, remember its color, and place it into the container. The spectator is also asked to screw on the lid and hide the remaining four chips in their hand. The performer then turns around, not being able to see inside the container or into the spectator’s hand. Even so, the performer is able to tell the spectator which color chip they selected and placed into the sealed container!
This is a one-person effect. No secret assistants required. Easy to do! A very strong effect indeed! Supplied complete with everything needed.
