Vernon felt that the Three Card Monte was one of the most commercial card effects in all of magic. David Regal has taken the Three Card Monte plot and given it a kicker that the audience not only doesn't see coming, but couldn't even begin to explain. Change for a Five isn't just Three Card Monte. It's a fully contained routine with a surprise ending that will fool even you while you perform it.

Here's what happens:

The magician shows two jokers and a queen while explaining the first time they got taken for a ride with the classic Three Card Monte scam. The first time they lost they owed the hustler five dollars. The second time they watched even closer and they lost another five dollars. The third time the game was played... All three cards are turned over and shown to have transformed into the the five of hearts, diamonds, and clubs. All three cards transform without ever having gone near a deck or in the performer's pocket. The change can happen while they are burning your hands!

This effect is easy to do, and the gimmicks involved can be constructed in seconds from materials in your own home. The effect requires minimal sleight of hand, and the three-card transformation happens in the open with an exceptionally clever method. David Regal carefully teaches not only the method, but additional concepts that make this not just a great routine but a real fooler. Change For Five will change your Three Card Monte forever.

The King of all 3 Card Montes Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
This is a great version of the standard Monte but the finale is that all 3 cards change. I thing this one is superb as the spectator never sees it coming - either did I. You can make this with any deck with something a little extra. Yes, there is something you have to make, but when you combine a gimmick with some sleight of hand or 2 different principles together, you get an amazing effect that will blow them away. To make the gimmick you will already have it at home or make a quick trip to the Dollar Store. It will take just but a few minutes to make.

David is going to teach you a new principle that will not only be applicable to card effects but will have other applications. Being armed with a ‘new principle’ is invaluable in our trade. It will allow you to do things that you have not been able to do before - it is brilliant. This in itself it more than worth the price of this effect so process it like you are getting Change for a Five for free. David does a perfect job of teaching you the three phases of this effect, clearly, concisely with great camera shots, you won’t miss a thing.

The slight/move you learn is very simple even if you are a novice with cards, a little practice yes but noting sophisticated. A little more time to learn the routine and you are ready to go. This is really an amazing trick with a climax ending that no-one will see coming. I really can’t wait to start fooling people with this, it’s truly a winner. Thanks for sharing David!

Five Gets Five from me Report this review

(Did you see what I did there in the title?)
Regal is a genius. His latest book is WONDERFUL and full of great creative ideas like this one.
This is pure Regal. A small gimmick, a tiny bit of work, and an incredible effect. The trick can be made in FIVE MINUTES (see what I did there?) and will be ready to go for walk-around or close-up work.
Really, this is a great piece of magic for a small price. The monte is a clear plot, easily understood by virtually anyone, and incredible when performed properly.
Very highly recommended!

Change for a Five Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
This is one of the coolest Three Card Montes I have ever seen. I would have never guessed how he did it. The technique is sweet, the outcome is devastating. There are some moves to practice, actually it's more about getting the pattern down. The moves should come easily. With minimal work you will have a major illusion. This is super deceptive and well controlled. David Regal is a Champ, his tutorials are always excellent !!!

Best 3 card monte yet Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
This trick is one you will want to perform over and over again. I found the explanation to be very thorough and clear. It will take some practice but it is worth the time you put into it. Get the trick, practice for a little while and you will be performing in no time.

Great new concept Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
This is really fantastic. I've performed many monte routines in my time. Most are very similar in method but with interesting little twists. This is a method I've not come across and I cant wait to try it out. Very little prep and teaching is very good. Highly recommended.

I was fooled Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
I watched the performance......I was fooled:)
I have been a 3 card Monte fan for ever and often use it in walk around situations.
I normally stay away from gimmicks in this routine, but today that’s going to change.
Yes there is a gimmick to this but it’s very easy to do. Really simple and so cool.
If you haven’t done a 3 card Monte before it will take a bit of practice to get the slight sorted, but the rest is a very easy routine to learn.
David presents well and his video is thoroughly explained.
It’s worth the 5 stars

If you've seen the "Change for Five" download, you know where that phrase comes from.
There's no other phrase in world language to describe how open, how startling, how beautiful this Monte is.

lovely Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
A wonderful version of 3 card monte. Smart new principal, and the variation on the sleight is actually easier and slicker than the traditional move executed with tented cards. Bravo, Mr. Regal.

Wow, I like this 3 card monte Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
I've always liked the 3 card monte plot, but I haven't taken the time to learn one. I think this video will change that. I love the ending of this one. It's so powerful, you don't go to your pockets or mess with a deck, and pow, all the cards have changed. This is a combination of a few different principals, all working together to fool the heck out of whoever you show this to. This is awesome. I can't express how much I like this. He teaches a principal that can be used for many applications. Get this.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 5th, 2019
Mr. Regal rarely if ever disappoints. This is an 18 minute tutorial and you not only have a great effect but a new concept explained that lets you add or subtract cards at will. It's useful, practical and effective. Just buy it!
