The dealer description of Time Is Money is loaded with superlatives but doesn't tell you too much about the trick. So, here is the effect in a nutshell:

You borrow a bill from a spectator, which can be any denomination that you've anticipated in advance, and have the bill signed.

Finally, it's basically impromptu. You have to carry a pre-creased bill (or set of bills, depending on your presentational strategy). That's it! Nice.

This is a clever combination of two, well-known methods. I was originally worried that there wasn't any credit given in the explanation. Asi more than made up for this in the credits by giving a... [Read More]
