I know 4+ confabulations, this is the easiest to do. This is also good for table hopping to stage,
which I really like.
If you want to do confabulation, this is the one you should choose!

I purchased this effect as I have been impressed with Chris's approach to magic that I have seen him
perform on television. This effect helps address things about confabulation routines that I always
felt could be improved and allows you to do it close-up. The quality of the video and teaching is
top notch. If you are looking for a very powerful routine that will make people remember you, this
is one of them. I am surprised Chris shared this routine but I am happy he did.

I will give this a 5 even thought there is one small bit of misinformation given.
That is so
insignificant it still deserves a 5. The premise is totally entertaining which is often lacking in
mentalism. The principle is totally ingenious the way any inconsistencies are totally covered by the
premise. I haven't received the gimmicks yet but I think after watching the video 1 of the gimmicks
might even be unnecessary but still useful to make the handling easier.
I rarely give a 5 but
this effect definitely deserves it.

Once you have prepared your answer forms, you are ready to go. I suggest you perform a few "quick"
tricks to catch the audience attention before doing this one. Its a great effect which requires some
concentration, so it is best that your audience is focused. The whole routine takes 4-5 minutes but
its well worth the wait to see the spectators reaction.
Finding a funny mentalism routine isn't always easy. Chris Funk has given us a fun little routine
here that gets a lot of laughs from the audience and is the perfect example of "packs small plays
big". After the initial one-time setup, you'll have this ready to go in a moment's notice and it
really sets the audience expectations of your magic very low...until the kicker, which catches folks
off guard and makes the moment even more amazing. Another winner from Chris Funk.
If you are into Mentalism and confabulations, this is a must have. WoW Just WoW. You put a little
fun in your routine with this and everyone is having a good time. Hey who doesn't want a dollar.
you showed the layman what they were going to say and proved it. Great confab Chris You nailed it.
I was hesitant at first but once I had this in my hands no regrets just pure fun and magical.
I almost don't want to review this routine for fear that others will buy it! This gets all of the
reactions that you could want from your spectators. Every "bad joke/ lame revelation" fits in so
perfectly that when the big reveal is made at the end, the whole crowd is blown away. Last week
while performing at a fundraiser, I performed the "One Dollar Mystery" for the first time in front
of an actual audience. Truth be told, the routine has been sitting on my shelf for a few months
now..... for no good reason. Well, now I'm kicking myself, thinking about all of the shows that I
could have put this in. What an amazing routine!!!! The audience loved every minute of it and the
person whose mind I was reading was completely blown away. After the show, she was interrogated by
other audience members and all she could say was that I hadn't met or spoken to her before the show
so she has no idea how I made her say what she said. So, thanks for releasing such an amazing
routine that is now going to be a staple in my mentalism show.
Like his take on this. Another can't go wrong purchase. made me really want to think up my own
version. But until then...
this will do just fine.
I Have been a Confabulation performer for many many years; Chris has worked out a few of the
problems I have been stumbling and ‘managing’; his ideas and gimmick are what I wish I thought of
years ago... well worth the purchase.
Chris Funk has emerged as one the most innovative minds in Magic. His One Dollar Mystery is so well
thought out that the methodology is hidden deep within the routine. Every moment in this blockbuster
effect is justified and the audience is led down the garden path only to left speechless at the end.
One Dollar Mystery is so clever and can by added quickly to any type of act. I think it's brilliant.
