I have written one review for this already, but have since had time to TRY to make this gimmick work
with United States currency. BEWARE, this trick does NOT work well (or really at all) with American
dollars. I love magic, but I hate to be TRICKED into buying something that is useless, that I cannot
use. This illusion will only work properly with larger FOREIGN paper bills. (THAT is why Mr. Tsai
uses only those in his demonstrations!!)duh. Anyway, I think the trick should at least spell that
out VERY clearly, OR, provide the bills you need to do the illusion properly. There, I feel better
now. At least you have been fore-warned, unlike me.

Looks good but my gimmick bent a bit and only some notes work with this also the handling isn't the
I like this illusion.It is not as mind blowing as some I have in my collection, but it does show
creativeness and is pretty well thought out. It would be easy to duplicate everything that is used
(once you know what you are trying to accomplish),but,it would have been really nice if an extra
envelope were included with the kit. As a matter of fact (and this is the main reason I give this a
3 star rating)an extra envelope that allowed you to use AMERICAN paper currency would have been
ideal!! You can use U.S.A. bills, but they do not work as well as the wider bills Mr. Tsai uses.
(Maybe he should make an AMERICAN version if he has an international audience for this product!!)I
thought the DVD was well done and he explained all aspects of the trick very well, particularly the
several different ways to dispose of the gimmick. You do not need to be a flashy magician, or have
to know any special moves to do this routine: important items stay very well hidden and angles are
not much of an issue...just do not do this with a spectator lying on the floor under you and you
should be okay!! Will Tsai also suggests a couple of modifications you can make to the rig to
improve its workability and make it better, which I intend to do. You have to sacrifice some money
to do it, but the net result is an even better illusion than what you initially start out with. This
is NOT something that Tsai could have done for us ahead of time because there are personal decisions
you have to make regarding the money denominations you want to work with. But the fact that he
shares these improvements with us is wonderful. Bottom line: I am glad to have this in my
I would have liked this DVD to show you how to construct the gimmick . The DVD is very short also.
