Professional-grade mentalism without the hefty price tag. "Tricolour" is a special utility system for performing a jaw-dropping array of color prediction effects—no expensive/unreliable electronics or sleight of hand required!

"Beautifully simple, and very deceptive!" Andy Nyman

"Tricolour" is brought to you by Simon Lipkin, star of Derren Brown's Unbelievable, and The 1914. This sneaky set of gimmicks was bred out of necessity after Simon grew frustrated from having expensive electronics malfunction at the worst times. He wanted to find a superior way to perform color-matching effects more reliably.

After much trial and error, he created "Tricolour"—a powerful close-up utility system that allows you to achieve nearly identical effects as its expensive counterparts, but at a fraction of the price (and with exponentially more reliability).

"A solid method, reliable gimmicks and smart routining." Christian Grace

Originally credited to Tony Anverdi and later popularized by Craig Filicetti, the color match plot is a modern classic. Now it's your turn to reliably perform this reputation-maker with ease in a close-up setting.

You'll receive everything you need to start performing right away, including all the props and detailed online video instructions teaching you:

Simon Lipkin's Signature Colour Match Routine
A participant chooses any pen at random and uses it to color in a pre-dawn image. This is repeated a total of three times until a completely random color combination has been created. Despite how fair and free every phase feels, you are able to impossibly predict the outcomes with 100% accuracy.

Three Will
You introduce three pens capped with a black lid. While your back is turned, your participant places each pen in a different pocket. You then explain how, despite their appearance, each pen is actually a different color. From your right pocket you produce a red lid, from your left pocket, a green lid, and from your back pocket, blue. Remarkably, when the participant takes the pens out of their pockets and uncaps them, they discover they've matched the same colors in their pockets.

Color Dupe
Your participant chooses any pen and draws any picture in secret while your back is turned. Despite both decisions being completely free choices, you are able to not only reveal the color of the pen they used to draw but reveal (or duplicate) their entire drawing!

Chenvelope Test
A baffling close-up take on the classic Chair Test plot using three participants, three pens, three cards, and three envelopes. All of the props are mixed and many choices are made. It's all incredibly fair. Yet you are able to prove that you knew the outcome of all events way ahead of time.

The project was already an insane value. But, then Simon returned to it six months later with even more ideas. He sat down in the studio and recorded all this bonus content including a draw anything match effect, as well as a sensational chair test contribution from master mentalist Marc Paul.

"This is fantastic. Nobody needs more gadgets and this is a perfect, practical solution to a great plot." Noel Qualter

Comes With

  • Three Sharpie markers
  • All the gimmicks
  • Long-lasting black Tyvek envelopes
  • Billets

NOTE: If the pens ever run out of ink, you can easily get inexpensive refills at your local stationery store.

Strap in for an entertaining and enlightening journey of (quite literally) colorful mentalism from one of the most exciting new names in magic. Get "Tricolour" by Simon Lipkin.

  • Rick asks: Just to be clear, once the Sharpies are in the spectator's hands, the magician can have his back turned while the spectator chooses the Sharpies, correct? (ie: totally hands off & turned away)

    • 1. Christian answers: From what I read on the Magic Cafe, totally hands off, yes, but turned away, I don't think so.
