Hey guys I bought Greed about 4-5 years ago and loved to perform it, i didnt buy it from pengun magic though so i dont have the private forum for greed but i have a question. For anyone who owns this and still perform it, is it possible to make the gimmick with the new bills cause in the video he used the old bills and back than they were still in circulation but now they are very hard to find. I really dont want to waste my time making the gimmick if its not possible, if anyone wants to PM me with ideas on how to do it with the new colored bills i would appreciate it alot.

Same thing, just be more precise when making the gimmick. On the DVD Garcia says he made this as a kid with monopoly money, so you should be fine.

It's sort of a worse effect but you can just hide that whole side when showing the 10 instead of the normal handling. If not go to a bank and ask for old bills. Or even most stores.

Even easier, find the images of the banknotes online and print them. It's not that you're gonna hand them out to the spectators anyway.

The reason that the trick is so hard is that it's difficult to hide the fact that you are carrying something much thicker than just a bill. That's the main reason that I have stopped performing it. I have met Daniel Garcia multiple times and know how great he is at performing magic, but this trick just isn't for me.

I had the same trouble with Gregory Wilson's Hundy 500. I use to do it a few years ago with 1's and 20's. I made the gimmick a couple years ago with the new bills and it was so obvious, the bills stood out. If I did 1's into 100's I shouldn't have a problem I don't think, I just need the money for it.
