This iconic effect is now more dependable and versatile than ever. Tony Anverdi’s “Color Match” is the best version of the classic color matching effect ever created.

"WARNING: all of your other mentalism products will feel very self-conscious when you add this beast to your arsenal. Amazing method, meticulously well thought out improvements, and endless possibilities; you can't ask for better.” Spidey

“Anverdi's Color Match” allows you to read minds with unrivalved accuracy and 100% confidence. You can easily duplicate a colored drawing created by a volunteer and so much more. Go beyond the standard color matching effect and explore the true potential of this incredible technology.

Important Crediting and History
This style of effect has been tremendously popular for many years. While there are a variety of different versions available, the original idea is credited to Tony Anverdi. “Anverdi's Color Match” is being offered by Murphy’s Magic—who purchased the rights to all of Anverdi’s material. This is the most advanced version ever and offers way more possibilities than the original Anverdi effect and other similar ideas.

Innovative Technology

The biggest difference this “Anverdi Color Match” set offers is the fact that all the technology is contained in the pens themselves. You no longer need any cup, glass or pencil holder. The spectators can place the pens in their pocket or even lay them on the table—opening up a lot more potential for different routine ideas.

The new multi-directional “Alien” technology allows you perform with complete confidence every time. It works at insanely long distances that blow competitors out of the water. Perform from the back of the audience during your stage and parlor magic show or add a bonafide showstopper to your close up magic or mentalism set.

Failsafe Technology

Gone are the days of false signals throwing off your routine. With “Color Match”, if the audience member picks up a pen and then quickly changes their mind, the receiver will let you know of the change. The original pen also remains active so you can get an alert when it’s picked up again. Ready for the best part though…once a pen is used, it will be deactivated so it can’t accidentally trigger again!

Duel-functioning, multi-directional technology allows you to access these safety features in all performance settings. Low battery alerts also make sure you always know when it’s time to change the batteries.

Personalization Options

Easily tune “Anverdi’s Color Match” to suit your needs. Multiple signal types (vibration, multi-color LED, simultaneous mode) and vibration levels are available. The pens’ smart sensitivity can also be adjusted and you can easily remove the e-Pods for charging and some bonus effects that expand beyond the standard “Color Match” routine. Both ankle and wristband straps are also included.

"This is simply the best version available...with so many improvements but beyond the obvious, this is an incredibly versatile tool that simply has to be seen & experimented with to fully understand the possibilities. Yes, it's a fantastic routine with pens, but step outside the box and set your mind free, and it will be in overdrive with ideas.” Marc Spelmann (Magician X)

Unlock the Full Potential

Each “Color Match” by Tony Anverdi set comes with a comprehensive 2.5 hour download featuring 12 routines and numerous bonus ideas from Craig Petty, Luca Volpe, Menny Lindenfeld, Marc Spelmann, Titanas and others.

Here is just a small sampling of what you’ll learn to do with “Color Match” (this only scratches the surface of what is possible):

  • Perfectly predict how an audience member will color in five different shapes
  • With your back turned, the spectator freely chooses markers and places them on different areas of their body without any clue that you're secretly influencing their choices
  • A Which Hand style effect in where you read their minds 3 times in a row before a kicker ending where you reveal that all their thoughts were actually predetermined
  • A mind-blowing and fooling CAAN that gets multiple spectators involved
  • Become a real life Sherlock Homes with a 10+ minute highly-entertaining murder mystery act where the audience makes all the decisions
  • And so much more!

"The technology of ‘Anverdi's Color Match’ is so advanced and brilliant, you will use it for much more than "just" an amazing color match routine. I love that you can remove the smart-chip pods and use them for endless creative (unrelated) effects. ‘Anverdi's Color Match’ is beyond amazing! Menny Lindenfeld

"Peeking under the hood of ‘Anverdi's Color Match’ is like looking at Alien technology. It rids itself of all predecessors' restrictions, flaws and unnecessary props. By far, this is the most advanced and awe inspiriting piece of technology in magic that I've ever seen." Lloyd Barnes

"’Anverdi's Color Match’ has solved all of the problems of previously released versions. The technology used in this official Anverdi version of ‘Color Match’ is breathtaking." Marc Oberon

"The Anverdi “Color Match” is an amazing utility device with literally hundreds of uses. I very rarely add anything new to my repertoire but this ticks all of the technological and handling boxes in order for me to put it directly to use in my new socially distanced theatre show. Highly recommended!" Keith Barry

"As big fan of the Anverdi products, I am very excited about the release of ‘Anverdi's Color Match’! There are many features in this kit that will make this prop a joy to use and different from the other version on the market. Simple to set up, double cue and fail safe features and of course great craftsmanship. I cannot wait to add this to my show!" Luca Volpe

"My head is still spinning with how technologically advanced this is. This is by far, not only the best version of Color Match, but a weapon to create multi-layered original effects." Titanas

Customer reviews for Anverdi's Color Match



There is no false advertising here! These markers are really high tech and for what they are, the price point is pretty fair. A bonus is the long instructional video that accompanies this product.



After seeing a total amateur like Donny Osmond do this trick on Cris Angel's show I knew I had to give it a shot. Honestly, I'm tired of buying tricks for $20 just to put them in the box for unused tricks. While pricey, it checked off a lot of the things I wanted in a magic trick. I do stuff primarily for friends and family in close settings. This trick is perfect for that as well as stage. Not too many illusions have that advantage. I'll use index cards for close up and save the ink. The instruction video is two and a half hours long. Which is a plus and a negative. A negative because 2.5 hours long is a bug chunk of your life (I'm 60 and an amateur magician for 55 years). However, it's a plus, because at $300 the instructions should be more than a slip of paper. I'm still learning everything and am most definitely looking to do more than just the feature trick. It's basically examinable, which is a big plus for me because in close settings people are apt to want to touch and feel and look closer. No putting the trick in your pocket and moving on to another trick.

I'm glad I purchased it from Vanishing Inc. because of their superior customer service and points system. I've already ordered a second set of markers.



Well - A wonderful magician friend of mine, Jasen Magic, introduced me to the trick at a show but made me do the research my self. However - VI makes everything easy to find bc they have everything!! So I ordered the markers and I can say these are amazing and the responses from the audiences is baffling. I have developed 2 routines - The first is with a foto of a bear that is sent to the spectators phone before the trick is started. I show them my phone and ask them to put in thier number to show the audience I do not have them in my address book nor communicated with them before the trick. Once they are convinced, they receive the text but have to leave phone turned down and no peaking at the text. I hand them a replica of the bear on a piece of paper and they color it in (using the "color match" trick) then they turn over the phone, put in security code, go to their messages and click on phot I texted them... looks exactly like the picture they colored. The second effect is similar but I did it with a pair of socks I am wearing to match the colors. Super easy to use! I just recommend getting the "Crayola" markers and swapping the actual "spongy marker ink" out for the same colors using the Crayola colors. The actual markers are kind of dull in color. Love this and will purchase the Die as well.

One of the best magic purchases I’ve made in a very long time. The gimmicks work great, great instructional video with lots of different routine ideas, and in my view more affordable and adaptable then similar sets by other makers. I think having the markers gimmicked, rather than the holder, allows for many more possibilities. So good I’m considering getting a second set. Also, if you’re looking for coin- style envelopes that are big enough to fit the markers, search for “policy envelopes”.



Everything about this product is perfect. The application of the gimmicks is limitless.



As the other Anverdi releases this one is also Excellent! It works just as it says. The fail safe feature really great thinking. The receiver is a good size to either have in your hand or somewhere to feel the vibrations. The only negative I can find is the markers. Although they work well with the effect, I would prefer the cap with the "sensor" would fit in a pen we could purchase locally. The tutorial, which was great, only shows how to replace the pen tips. Seems if only the tips contain ink, not sure how many performances you can do before you need a refill. The tutorial did not cover this enough or explain it in too much detail, just that refill pens will be available after the release of the item. Not a big deal, just my observation. This is definitely worth the money, and a terrific new item in the Anverdi collection.



This effect is nothing short of brilliant. The reactions and amazement it gets are second to none. The instructions are precise and no stone is left unturned. Worth every penny.



This is a stunner, per my first performance for a very skeptical audience. It's simple to perform, and the extensive video tutorial gives multiple routines to develop from the gimmick.
The quality of the product is top-notch, as should be expected for the premium price. In fairness, as typical, most of the price is for the development and teaching of the secrets and methods. But the technology in this is also worth something beyond many of the items for sale at magic shops.
I am pleased with this purchase, and I highly recommend it to parlor magicians of any skill level.



Extensive instructions along with a perfectly working apparatus make for one of the most baffling pieces of magic I’ve ever purchased.

The package I received was incomplete, which was a disappointing error in quality control. Things such as this may cast doubt on overall product quality. I place the blame entirely on Murphy’s Magic.

I contacted the marvelous crew at VI and received an immediate response. The error was corrected within minutes.

My suggestion is, if Vanishing Inc stocks the product your looking for, buy it from them. You won’t be sorry.



One of the best tricks I’ve purchased in years. From the packaging to the tutorial video and all the “colorful” things in-between, this is expertly crafted, cleverly designed and extremely versatile. The only criticism I have is that the trailer exposes the main effect. That’s on Murphy’s and I’d hope they’d avoid doing this in the future. Other than that, I lovr Anverdi’s Color Match!

~Quick Review~

Packaging - 9/10
Makers/ePODS - 8/10
Receiver - 9/10
Instructional Video 8/10
~Long Review~

Upon Receiving the Device you get probably by far the most Over the top packaging. You take the top off the canister, the top lights up and fades through a series of colors, and music plays. There is a switch on the inside of the lid next to the Instructions link/ password along with a micro USB input to charge the lid. … to charge … the lid! (More on this later)

The markers are really well made. They contain an ink well/bladder to keep the markers lasting for a long time and to protect the ePODS (The electronics) (more on those in a second). The markers function like regular markers, but the colors do seem a bit … Weak I guess is a decent way to put it. The color is fine, but the colors are just bland I guess. But no one seems to notice which is fine. In the instructions, we are informed on how to change the nib of the markers but not what to do if the ink is empty/dried up. This means when I am faced with this, I’ll have to get creative with a solution.

The ePods are built into the ends of the markers and can be removed by using the cap of the markers and popping off the ends. The ePods have a pretty long range to them and their settings can be changed through the receiver. Since the ePods can be removed, it allows you to get creative with what you can put them in. From Easter eggs to candy. All are taught in the instructions. (More on this later).
My biggest issue with the ePods is the fact that they are battery-powered. The lid is rechargeable. The Receiver is rechargeable but the ePods take a disk battery. (I understand its most likely to make them smaller, but my headphones are around the same size and are rechargeable. It’s probably to keep the cost down… who knows). The receiver can let you know if the batteries in the ePods are low so that’s a good thing. The ePods are labeled to indicate which side is Positive and what side is negative so you can make sure the batteries are put in correctly. In the instructions, they inform you that if you do not plan to use the markers for over 6 months or so, remove the batteries. The ePods use a gyroscope or Angle sensor to not only power on the ePods but to activate the Markers, which makes using the markers pretty easy and intuitive.

The receiver.
When you first get it, it feels pretty lightweight which was concerning as it can feel a little cheap. It comes with a strap to secure the receiver and a mounting clip. Making it easy to hide on your body. The receiver allows you to change the tilt sensitivity of the makers, the strength of the vibration, and how you obtain the information which is probably my favorite feature. You can get the information by vibration and or by an LED light that changes color to match which marker is being picked up. This makes it easier to identify which marker is being selected. When a marker is triggered there is a 5 cycle kind of timer where it will vibrate the number of times to indicate which color has been selected 5 times. Once the cycle is complete, that marker becomes “Inactive” just in case. But the receiver has a reset button. This will allow you to reactivate all the markers which allow for some pretty interesting revelations (explained in the instructions) Also when the receiver is going through a cycle, the participant can change their mind before the 5th cycle and it will switch to the new marker while keeping the first selection still active. They call it a fail-safe. Which is a pretty nice feature to have

The instructions seemed to have been filmed in a cLog and were not really color corrected or graded. SO the entire video seems muted and low contrast. Which is probably the only negative thing I have about it. That and the timestamp card is seen only briefly. The instructions for the device are thorough except for what to do if the Ink wells go dry and what have you. Not to mention there is no information on whether or not the ePods can be installed into other markers or not. So that’s gonna needs some experimenting on my end. Outside of that, the information offered goes pretty in-depth. Wile also offers a handful of different routines and ideas to be used with the device in general. There are of Course color matching routines, Cards tricks, and much more. Enough material and ideas that almost everyone can get something out of it. The routines offered do get a bit to explain at times (have a lot of steps or explanations to give to the participants) Which is fine for what it is. But this product is most definitely not for everyone. It can be self-working but will still need some creativity to come up with routines that suit your style/shows.

All in all this is a really great product. You can tell a lot of thought went into the construction of everything to not only give a great product but also a great presentation and a positive opening experience. What I thought would have been dope is if the ePODS were rechargeable and had a wireless charging feature in the base of the markers so when you store them top-down in the case (that’s how they are basically deactivated) the Fancy Pants lid would recharge them like an AirPods case. But then these things would be stupid expensive. Still would be cool tho.

  • Chris asks: What if the pens run out of ink? Can the gimmicks be put in a new pen, or can you somehow replace the ink?

    • 1. Jim answers: Refills for the ink will be made available, sometime after the release of the product.
    Post an answer to this question
  • James asks: The photo shows a red pen. But the trailer shows an orange pen which they refer to as red. So which color do you get: red or orange?

    • 1. Jim answers: In the explanation video, the color red is said throughout. I agree that the pen looks more orange than red. This may be due to the lighting in the studio (where they filmed the video and trailer).
    Post an answer to this question
  • Tom asks: So, I'm now a little confused. The ad stated you can use this in things like candy, easter eggs, etc. That made it sound like the tech can be removed from the pens provided and used elsewhere. Am I understanding this correctly? You had mentioned about ink refills being provided making it sound like the tech stays in the pen and you only switch out ink cartridges and that the tech is not capable of being used in other applications other than these pens.

    • 1. Jim answers: The tech can be remove and hidden in other items.
    Post an answer to this question
  • Danny asks: Can you ask a spectator to place the 6 markers in any order they would like to, and then before they reveal their chosen order, allow them to change their order, and still reveal that your order matches theirs?

    • 1. Jim answers: The order of the markers should not have any impact on the performance.
    • 2. Jim answers: If they move/pick up the pens *a lot,* you can reset the receiver and start fresh. I hope that helps!
    Post an answer to this question
  • Ken asks: Does this require WiFI to work? There are some venues I work (schools in particular) where WiFi signals are blocked.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: No wifi needed!
  • Mark asks: Will this interfere with other Anverdi products?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: I don't think it'll be a problem but you might want to use the receivers separately just to be safe.
  • Felix asks: Does this trick also allow color prediction like Justin Willman did on the Ellen Show?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It does allow you to perform the routine that Justin Willman.
  • Emir asks: So, if tech can be removed and placed in other products, why it cannot be removed and placed in other (new) pens? Why are the refills needed?

    • 1. Emir answers: Oh, I understand. I'll order it anyway, and try to fit into some regular pens once these dry out. If refills are not available at the time. All in all, super excited about this product.
    • 2. Jim answers: The pens are made to fit the tech. Pens found on store shelves don't have the same space available. Common pens might work, with some DIY work.
    • 3. Kirk answers: The Color Match pens are specially designed to protect the gimmick from the marker ink fumes which can degrade the gimmick over time.
    Post an answer to this question
  • Steve asks: Does each transmitter gimmick contain a battery? Are the batteries rechargeable? About what is the battery life? What about the receiver? Is there any warning before the batteries need to be replaced or charged?

    • 1. Javier answers: Each transmitter gimmick DOES contain a battery. They are not rechargeable but easily replaceable. Batteries will last hundreds of performances as long as the unit is put to sleep after each use. The receiver contains its own rechargeable battery, and will notify you when it's low on battery as well as when each individual color is running low on battery so it can be changed before it runs out.

  • Len asks: I'm a total beginner. This seems like it is very easy for somebody with little talent to get started. Do I need any skill to use this product, is it as easy as it seems?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is as easy as it seems.
  • Thomas asks: Ordered these yesterday. I found out that Murphy's have extra matching'empty' pens exactly like the 5 'loaded' set. I am interested in these as well. Do you stock them and is it possible to add them to my currently placed order.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The refill pens are not available as of yet but will be soon!!
  • Vince asks: Wouid order now except will wait until I know for sure Vanishing has refills. Any idea when?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The refill pens are not available as of yet but will be soon!!
  • Paul asks: just ordered- what type of batteries do they take ? thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The batteries are rechargeable in the unit so you don't have to worry
  • Gary asks: Will the transmitter fit in a jumbo crayon 9/16" diameter? (would drill out and back fill)

    • 1. Remy answers: It might. This is one where you will have to try it out yourself.
    • 2. Frank answers: It might be challenging; the transmitter is about 21/32" (~.658") at the widest point so you would probably have only ~1.2 mm. of clearance "on each side."

  • Clifton asks: Taking the "color in five shapes" routine as an example, am I correct that they would HAVE to color the shapes in order, either left to right, or right to left? They couldn't color the middle shape first, in other words.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is no order in which they need to color. Basically, they pick a color first and then color in a shape.
  • Andrew asks: What are the dimensions of the ePod transmitters? (Want to think through what else they’d fit in.) thx!

    • Alex asks: Hi, How does this compare to the ProMystic’s version of Color Match, besides them offering the crayon version? Alex

      • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Both versions are great and work very similarly. The nice thing about Anverdi's version is that you can actually see the color of the marker picked via the receiver.
    • david asks: When ink runs low other than replacing with a new tip would you ever have to replace the inner ink well? Or is replacing the ink tip all thats ever needed for refilling the ink? Thanks!

      • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You'll just need to replace the ink tip. Soon refills will be available, but we currently do not have an eta
    • Ged asks: Since mystery is not the goal here, anyone under 60 will grasp the method, how do you think is the best way to handle this?

      • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We do not agree with you that "anyone under 60 will grasp the method"!
    • Eric asks: I am wondering if there is now a date when refills or extra markers will be available? Thank you. Eric

      • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We're still waiting on an eta I'm afraid
    • Robert asks: Getting back to the question asked by Clifton: if you are doing the "color in five shapes" routine, you would have to know the order of the shapes colored. You would know the color, but if the guest randomly chooses the shapes to color, you will know the color, but not which shape was colored or the order that the shapes are colored. Is this true? Thanks.

      • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: True, but once you know the color chosen, you can direct them to which shape to color in
    • Guillaume asks: hey everyone, english is not my mother tongue so i have somme difficulties to understand exactly what is it, i know the drawing are almost identic but it says we put the gimmick in another things.
