Jim’s new shortchange effect is a remarkable close-up routine. “The effect is tremendous,” writes Richard Kaufman. “Bunko is a perfect example of close up magic theater. An intriguing story draws the spectators in and then wallops them with magic.” Twenty dollars in change (five singles, three fives) changes to $19, then $14, back to $20… And at the end, the sucker ends up with just thirteen dollars. The routine is ingeniously arranged without any sleight of hand at all. A beautiful set of instructions, written by Richard Kaufman and illustrated with 48 full color photos, explain the routine in detail. Just eight bills. No folding, palming, flaps, switches or false-count sleights. The colorful, specially printed bills enhance the effect… Or perform it with real bills, as the instructions explain.
