Not since the mob, has it been this easy to change money.
Extortion by Patrick Kun & SansMinds has taken bill changes to a new level.

Imagine with a gentle FINGERTIP touch, magically change a to a with a CLEAN display from beginning to end.

Also a powerful new method to visually transpose the bill from yours to the SPECTATOR's hands!

1. Take two bills of different value.
2. Your spectator takes one of the bills and clinches it in their fist.
3. YOU unfold the other bill...slowly, gracefully show your bill from all sides.
4. With a light shake, your bill morphs into YOUR SPECTATOR'S bill!
5. Your spectator opens their hand and the bills have impossibly CHANGED.

Extortion or Money? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2014
So I received my copy of Extortion the same week Money arrived and I'm sure many of you, like I was, are wondering what's the difference, or which one is better? Well after playing with both, and seeing the reactions, I have to say, they are almost on par.
I say almost because you can do some things with Extortion that you can't do with Money and vice versa. For example, Extortion can be folded into quarters and have both sides shown before the change. However Money can be placed under a spectators hand and the change can happen as they lift their hand or smack the table.
What it comes down to for me is the quality of the gimmick. Money has a pretty subtle gimmick, it can also work with minimal movement. Extortion's gimmick is extremely solid and even more subtle, its thinner too. I also must say that the Money gimmick has too many components while extortion is very simple and bare bones. Both are fairly easy to build, but Extortion is more so.
I recommend Extortion over money in terms of quality of the gimmick. The only advantage Money has is the change under the spectators hand.

Bottom line, Extortion is way better in terms of a functional gimmick and you can easily recreate the gimmick several times because of its sturdiness. Hope this helped make up some minds!

Eye candy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2014
This is visual eye candy at it's best. You can show the bill clean on both sides and then it changes. If you think you know the workings, still get this, his tips and presentations on it are great, and it brings the change to a whole new level. Great job patrick! 5/5

Wow! Clever! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 19th, 2014
This is a great trick all around, but I must give some advice before construction. Don't use a 10 dollor bill, because the color alteration of the borders makes it look akward. However, this is very clever and still fooled people with the 10 dollar bill. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Really like it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2014
I really like this, it's straight in my wallet, and I NEVER say that.

It looks great but the only problem I can see with it is that the change seems to be very noisy now, wasn't this bad initially. Anyways, I digress, I love it and you will too!

One of my favourite bill changes for sure!

This trick is visually stunning! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2014
To start off with this trick is an amazing bill change from a 1 to almost any other bill! Itʻs similar to Greed by Daniel Garcia but it much faster and cleaner. Iʻm just gonna keep this review short and simple.
Pros
-Visual as it gets.
-Reset in literally seconds
-Easy to make
-Easy to learn
-The video is almost exactly what youʻll see in person.

Cons
-The bill itself is not examinable, however, Patrick shows a way to get around this.
-Gimmick can be loud in a quiet environment
-You will need to use bills that you may not get back meaning you may lose the bill to the gimmick.

Tips: I suggest using and older twenty, five dollar bill or a 100 dollar bill because itʻs less noticeable because of the color differences. Also youʻll probable want new bills because I used old bills and itʻs definitely not as clean as it could be.

However, flaws aside. This trick is extremely visual and so easy to do. I believe it deserves a 5 for creativity and simply because it leaves your audience stunned.
Very detailed video by Patrick
All in all, I would recommend this trick.

Extortion Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 12th, 2015
Pros
1 It looks visual and looks clean at the end

2 Good production quality

Cons
1 Spectator can't examine the bill unless you switch it , but the bill looks normal on both sides , you really have to convince the spectator to believe that the bill is normal at the end , otherwise they will ask to examine the bill

2 This trick is designed specifically for US dollars .. not for international currency .. I stay in India ... there will be two problems if you are using international currency ....
a) If your currency is having different sizes, you will have to shape your money to make it same size and it may looks weird though to that particular money
b) If your currency doesnt have borders ( kind of box at the edge just like US dollar ) , you will have to use another extra prop which will stay out-jogged on the edge of the money ( you have to hide it by folding it or covering it from the spectator
c)Because of your currency don't have borders,to execute the change is going to be quite difficult

3 It may have some snapping sound while executing the change

4 I dont think you can do a very slow gesture just like in the trailer ( I'm not sure because I use international currency but I dont think you can do it that perfect on live audience , maybe only on camera )

5 For international buyers that have different size of currency , you really can't retrieve your money back from the gimmick made as you have to cut and shape it to make it same sized . For US buyers , perhaps you can tape back together the piece as you will not have to really cut many parts of the bill .

6 No extra prop is provided , you can only make 1 gimmick with the props supplied

7 Patrick didn't explain the performance for international currency even actually to execute the change is different from the US buyers ..

Very Unclear Instructions Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2017
First off you have to have a lot of patience to make this gimmick and I felt that he was very unclear. It took me an hour to make my gimmick and it turns out that at the end of the video that you needed to use a 1$ and a 20$. which really annoyed me because at the start he said you could use any bill, so I suggest that you look through the entire video before making your gimmick. as a result my gimmick flashes a lot and i need to preform it a different way. because of this extortion will probable just sit in the box.

Haven't been excited for a card DVD in years and finally this one came about and is one of the best produced DVD's and the materials are amazingly awesome! This is a must buy DVD. The visual effects are like none other. I thought Patrick used a flipper card but NOPE! All slight of hand!!! Pick a copy up! You wont regret it.
