Give your audience a chance to win up to $100 of your money in a super fair board game. They make all the decisions, and all you have to do is follow the instructions. Even though the audience has complete freedom you win every time. This is the $185 Challenge by Mike Powers.

Here’s what happens:

A board with six spaces and a small stack of cards with instructions on it is introduced, along with $185 dollars. All the audience member has to do is put up a dollar. The audience member gets to place the bills on the board in any configuration they chose. Once the audience member has made their choices both the magician and the spectator follow the instructions on the cards with the understanding that if at any time they have to hand the dollar to the magician the game immediately ends and the spectator gets to keep all of the money on the board. Even though the spectators have multiple opportunities to make completely free choices; in the end, they come away with only the dollar bill.

The $185 challenge has the feel of a fair and honest board game, but with astonishing results. There is no sleight of hand and no equivoke. Mike Powers’ extremely clever method allows your audience to make truly free choices while you are still in complete control. You can play even play the game with spectators multiple times, and you always win. Put your money on the line with Mike Powers’ $185 Challenge.

Brilliant Routine for the Professional Performer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2021
Mike Powers has released a real worker for the working professional performer and amateurs who like to perform gambit and bank-nite style routines. I can imagine this routine being a perfect trade show piece. For example, the performer can use the names of other competitors and then the one company the audience ends up with is the one that didn't get eliminated, making it stand out amongst the rest. Of course, this will only apply when trade show come back in full capacity. With some imagination, one can come up with variations on performing this clever routine.

Mr. Powers is thorough with his explanations of the whole routine from start to finish. He includes the templates you can use to do the entire effect! And, of course, yes you can perform this over Zoom and Skype. I love it!

I was fortunate to be there when Mike was working this routine out and let me tell you, it really plays! Fooled me bad the first time he did it. It's fun, interactive, and never, ever makes the spectator a sucker. If you enjoy hard-hitting magic that involves your spectators and makes them a part of the action, this is for you!

Tons of fun Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2021
Mike managed to take advantage of some very fooling mathematical concepts. His description is accurate. The spectator has a totally free choice, and you're not dealing with an equivoque or similar tricks. There's a single move that can hardly be called a move. It's also an easy way to introduce magic into a social setting without busting out cards (which I think is a quick turn off for a lot of laymen).

This trick is great for mentalism; you can easily adapt your patter to be about influence. For the price this is a no brainer.

Fun Game Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2021
This is such a fun little game that you can customize to your own needs and creativity. The PDFs provide you with all you need to get started. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. While this isn't really an amazing magical effect, it is truly several minutes of engaging entertainment that draws people's attention. Well done!

This is worth every penny! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2021
This is a cool piece of magic that is presented as a Hussle like a 3 card monte piece. It is worth your attention and investment. It certainly is unique!

Great Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2021
Takes a little time to to learn and prep the first time. But is easy after that. It's well worth the little bit of effort. Very clever. And with a bit of imagination you could take this in lots of interesting directions.

$185 Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2021
Fantastic trick! Actually very simple and certainly NOT your average "pick a card" trick. You can get several people involved at the same time and they make all the moves. Real money on the table - real excitement! "Have you ever been to Vegas? Let me show you a little a game I saw there!" Great ice breaker. I'm glad I got it.
