Stained wooden plaques are used in this effect together with three chess pieces, each of which is painted in a different color. A spectator is given a free choice of one of the colored chess pieces and a free choice of one of the plaques, and is then requested to indicate this latter choice by placing his chosen chess piece on the selected plaque. The performer, however, is able to predict not only which chess piece would be selected but also the spectator’s choice of plaque. The selection of both the chess piece and plaque is absolutely free – No force is used. Clever!
