Around the year 2000, a brass version of this trick was introduced and it was an instant success. Why? Because the trick is practical, has a gentle sucker element, and a great colorful finish.
Well, here's an inexpensive version that popular turn of the new millenium close-up effect. But "inexpensive" does not mean "Cheap" in this case; the props do the job as well as other sets costing 4 or 5 times as much. The chips are not brass rimmed like the expensive version -- they are high quality plastic.
The effect in detail: Two poker chips are shown -- one with a black face and one with a white face. Both have similar shiny silver-y rims. With one in each hand, the magic dude closes his hands and sez the magic words Chipso Changeo...and the two colored chips change places. This is repeated until everyone in the audience "knows" the chips are both white on one side, and black on the other side. But then the chips change to red and yellow, backed with green and blue! Of course the audience wants to look at them, so...you drop the chips into their hot little hands for examination!
Although the item does not instantly reset, it can be reset in about 10 seconds if you have a brief moment of privacy from prying eyes.
