[b]Casino Royale[/b] by Magic Wagon is now available.

Here is the description from Magic Wagon’s website:
[quote]
[i] A beautiful wooden chest containing four “Casino Royale” chips ($50-$100-$500-$1000) are displayed. While the performer’s back is turned, a spectator is invited to remove any number of the casino chips, place them behind their back and lock the chest. Let’s say, for example, that they remove $650.00 in total. The performer now turns around, holds the chest in full view and immediately announces the exact amount of casino chips that the spectator’s has in their hand!
[list]
[*]The effect is completely self-contained - No external gimmicks of any kind are used!
[*]The effect is all done in full view - The chest never leaves the view of the spectator, not even for an instant!
[*]The effect can be immediately repeated with a different outcome!
[/list]
The mechanical method for this effect is absolutely ingenious and it has been inspired by one of the most sought after Clarence Miller’s effects called Treasure Chest Divination.
Casino Royale measures approximately 10cms wide, 6.8cms high and 7cms deep and has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish. The chest also comes complete with the high quality poker chips and is finally adorned with a beautiful brass engraved plaque. [/i]

My order is in! The small size is highly practical and perfect for me. I love poker chip effects, and this is a great lead-in to The Gamble, Miracle Chip, or a variety of other similar effects! Probably also useful for the chips that come with Michael Murray’s recent RPS book.

I feel that the colorful chips worth $1,650 really add to the elegance of the piece. Also, despite the typically simple description from MW, this is clearly going to be ripe for a variety of different presentations and multi phase performances.

Looking forward!!

I have my arrival notice for tomorrow! Can't wait! I feel like Seth Speaks above about the size and the chips. This will need to go into a routine where the chips end by change into coins but excited to see this as a middle part of a new coin routine in my case.

Yes, there is a lot of talk after every new MW item becomes available, but it is in the Magic Wagon thread at the very tippy top of Secret Sessions. Quite a bit was discussed about this one.
