The description is so vague. Hoping someone who has it will chime in and give us a little more detail.

Would love if it was as shown in the demo, but I'm sure theres a bigger chunk missing. Have the feeling that the $100 note may play a bigger part than shown

I like how it mentions who directed the video, like we all care..

In the second video on the page Rick says the $100 bill is not necessary

I like most of Rick's releases but I'm not too excited about this one because there are far better methods available but of course all of them cost a lot more money. Except some of the linguistic options such as Mark Elsdon's etc. I suppose it might be nice if you like the premise of the routine but haven't invested in the ($200-400) solutions as I have already.

Let me set the record straight if my post seemed somewhat ambiguous. I did not purchase this effect and am only speculating about Rick's method based on my own long history and experience with the "coin in hand" plot. Moreover, I'm pleased with my own routine that employs both electronics and other subtleties. I'm a big fan of Rick's work and if you haven't picked up his "Reverse Psychology" routine you owe it yourself to do so. I had lots of fun and success performing it last week in a local pub. For those who do purchase "Quarterly Report" I look forward to reading your reviews and possibly re-examining it if you find merit and value.

You might not care but the people who put in the hours of work do. Sometimes people like a little recognition for their work. Not everyone gets to be a pompous ass on a magic forum (like myself).

I am a big fan of Rick's thinking and this one has a similar "effect" as Reverse Psychology in that it doesn't play as magic at all although it is. It is the method I expected and although has a lot of clever language and even a simple follow up effect, it's the first time I felt overcharged. It is a good straight ahead effect I'll use, and a quick little divertissement but based on other options it is a $9.95 effect. That seems to be the price point I feel I would have been happy with for this simple effect but maybe that's just me. In the end, it's still really good and I've used it already. I'm glad to have it in my arsenal even with my multi-hundred options for this same effect.

Bought it thanks to people what work at my community centre, every week they give cash to people what come to them with ideas to progress themselves and they know about my ambitions and magic so they paid for it good eh. The trick is ok but I am disppointed that the demo vid on the website shows the strongest endning and some edits too so if you get that ending its good but if you don't I don't think its as good, I will pm you jackboty to see your idea for it thanks for offering it, I think 14.99 is too expensive for a one trick pony for this, it would be fair price if part of a dvd with 10 or 12 tricks for 25 dollars I think like his laptop lecture

Over priced in my opinion too. I wonder why it was not listed at $9.95 like most of the tricks of this quality.
