This is too convoluted for a simple which hand and there are better methods out there. It could be a giveaway in a magazine or a Reel Magic TNT but to sell it for $15 or even $10 is too much for what it is. I think it's possible that with a small amount of thought people will backtrack to the method.

It's also not repeatable, even to a different spectator if the person you have performed it for is watching.

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


It works just like it is shown...fail safe...

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


There is no "bigger chunk" missing....100.00 bill does not play any bigger part....Since I live and work in Detroit, I don't flash the money around but I offer to write them a check...I show them the check..100% authentic...and focus on the words "Write" and use it a few times...this, imho, adds much to the deception and enhances the psychological manipulation

I think it is a good, solid impromptu effect. You can use this as a lead in to other routines using the more expensive electronic techniques. Well worth the $9.95.



It can also be used as a free will/predestination effect which could lead into "Free Will" by Corbuzier, add in Chadwick's colon and you have a miracle..I did it once for a fellow in my office...he jumped out of his seat, said "you're in league with the Devil" and headed for the door....he calmed down and sat back down and but was still breathing heavy...

This most certainly true...it is NOT repeatable for the same spectator...I wouldn't even do it more than once at a party or where there were groups of people.

SEan, don't see where this is convoluted at all...also, the fact that the quarter is in their hands is a powerful reinforcer that it is a normal quarter. Sometime the spectator will ask if I had another @#$%^&* for the other !@#$...I have began to tell them "yes" and leave it to them to puzzle over how I could have possibly gotten it on there, with the quarter being in their hands the entire effect. This is based, loosely, on Barry Schor's "When Not If" as described in Kenton Knepper's "Wonder Words" Volume Three

I fail to see the resemblance with Barry Schor's effect as Rick's is suppose to be sureshot.

"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

I actually like this trick. The only real problem I have is its a one pony trick. Had to change some of the patter Rik used as not to create a challenge. Normally, everyone would want to try it based on the patter but its really not bad.

I found it great with Tequila Hustler. Do Tequila Hustler for a couple of times, and then end with Quarterly Report.

For it's limitations in terms of being a one trick pony the price is a little much. Overall though I've had some great responses with it.

I read all the reviews and I agree that it's expensive for what you get. For anyone that needed to go out and buy the stickers, I paid almost $5.00 for those too. But, oddly enough, I'm not complaining. I've also spent about $30 for Gerti Reborn, which is also expensive for what you get, but I've not found a good way to punctuate my Gerti Reborn routine, until now. Quarterly Report is an ideal way to finish Gerti Reborn and I've found that I'm getting a better reaction from folks for doing it this way. I just do my Gerti Reborn routine, 3 correct predictions, and then do a coin change over pass and then I'm ready to finish with Quarterly Report - a 4th prediction.
