A variant proposal (only the last sentence is a substantive change, the
rest is just pedantic rewording):
Sticky Switcheroo [Psmith]
A dark gift called "MAGIC FINGERS".
A player with this dark gift may, as an action, simultaneously set the
location of one of the tokens he or she is carrying to another player
and set the location of a token carried by the other player to him or
herself. This action reduces the actor's brownie points by fifteen,
may only be done once in a turn, and may not involve the Bottle Imp.
The token acquired may not be dropped in the same turn.
(This gives the switchee at least a chance to steal back, or indeed switch
back if they also have Magic Fingers, before the switcher makes a profit
on the deal)
