Simply Genius. Report this review

It's no surprise to anyone that Greg Wilson came out with ANOTHER amazing product. Everything that Greg releases is ridiculously audience tested and commercial.
So when I heard that Exact Change was coming to Penguin, I got incredibly excited.
Exact Change is a PERFECT gimmick (and I can't think of many that I've ever said that about). Exact Change is:
-Small (no pocket management skills required)
-Quick (no fidgeting or unnatural movements)
With the amount of routines it comes with from tons of professionals, you have enough material to do a different effect with this gimmick for the next month. With your own creativity? You have enough material to use Exact Change for a different effect at every show for the rest of your life.
Very easy to learn and very impressive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 18th, 2012
I was extremely satisfied with this.
It took next to no time to learn how to use the 'special extra' that makes this miracle work.
I have performed it for my wife, father and friends already. The general response is dumbfounded silence and the gentle sound of their brains melting.
One star off for the price (a bit expensive, especially since I don't need to use the money clip)
Incredible! Easy to Pick up Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2012
This is one of the most amazing gimmicks I have ever bought. I would not recommend this to 21th century people that can't do math in their head very well (I was worried at first but I picked it up quickly) and there is so much you can get out of this, the best $75 I've spent in a long time--greg never fails to produce top-of-the-line magic. I was performing this within a couple of hours and it is so diabolically deceptive, but you have to build up the performance and stress that your pocket is empty except for the amount of change the spectator freely names. Highly Recommended.

Look... you can't argue with the effect as Gregory presents it; it's a truly great trick! However...
The unnecessarily cluttered DVD menu makes the actual learning of the trick frustrating, and there's precious little attention given to the main mechanics. Why isn't there a direct download available from the DVD? And why not have a "learn" video in "MyPenguinMagic". As it stands, watching the DVD is your only option. 4 stars.
Oh yeah... the price is also way off-base (although Mr. Wilson claims he should charge more!) Make that 3 stars.

Outstanding! Report this review

Just the fact that this is by Gregory Wilson made me want to buy this. After seeing the video, I made it a priority to buy Exact Change.
What you get: Exact Change Gimmick
2 hour DVD with over 50 routines
Exact Change Gimmick: I can't say much here without exposing it, but this does not affect the clothes you wear. This can be done in jeans, shorts, pants, etc. The spectators WILL NOT FIND IT!
Why should I get this?: The routine is simply stunning. That you have them choose a RANDOM number from 1-100, and you pull out that amount of change from your pocket, nothing more, nothing less. They won't find the gimmick.
Is it really worth $75?: In my opinion, yes. An STRONG effect that looks 100% impromptu, and that will last you a lifetime. AND a 2 hour DVD of instruction, tips FROM YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, routines, patter ideas, and more. Greg also teaches you how to use Exact Change with Euro coins on the DVD.
Pros: Pretty much everything listed above! :)
Cons: I honestly can't think of any besides the price, which is WELL worth paying.
Overall: Just as the title says, outstanding! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! (I have gotten wonderful reactions)
Presentation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2012
It's all in the presentation - as is most tricks.
If presented well this can be a fun walkabout trick to add some wonderment in the audience as to your 'abilities'. I'd suggest angling the presentation more toward the magician 'projecting' ideas and highlighting your own powers more so.
That said - it's a fun add on trick for some walkabout routines and definitely an adequate filler.
good for pros, not for the rest Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2013
The production and ideas on the DVD is top notch. In fact second to none. This prop has real value for someone doing walk around or close-up on a regular basis. Its a jem, however for the average amateur performer performing for friends, family or even while sitting - I would not recommend this to them.

Great Utility Device and DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2013
The DVD for Exact Change has so many routines included that I'd say the included gimmick crosses the line from "single effect" to utility device.
When I was thinking about various ways that this effect could be accomplished, before purchasing, I envisioned all kinds of complicated camoflaged compartments sewn into the pants' pocket. But it's nowhere near that elaborate and really quite clever.
My only obstacle is that there is a major ditch. The DVD demonstrates perhaps a dozen ways to accomplish this, some not involving a ditch at all. But it is there and should be noted that it will take some practice and confidence to pull it off. Ideally, this should be done before audience has realized that something magical has happened, so that you can be clean by the time you're enjoying the applause.
WAY overpriced Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 5th, 2013
The prop or gimmick is a $5 item. The DVD content is not worth the difference.
It's essentially one effect with a few variations. I found the dvd valuable for its ditches, false transfers, etc (I lost some of these moves in my shotty magic education), but I'm not sure why this effect is marked so high.
Save your money and just do one of the many old effects which leave the spectator feeling like you've done the exact same thing as Wilson has done here.
You could spend half the money on quadruple the valuable content on this site.
Will I perform this trick? Probably. I do like the effect. I just don't know if anyone will feel like this is worth $75.
Once, after getting mugged in Manhattan (3 card monte gone bad), I found myself with only an Invisible deck in my pocket. I performed it for someone and asked him if he'd pay $20 to learn how to do that. He did. It paid my way home. I don't know if he would have paid $20 to learn this. Would you?
