Blind Man's Bill Change by Lloyd Barnes is here!

In 2017 we created a challenge for Lloyd Barnes that we thought he'd never be able to win. Create a bill change with both sides of the bill changing at the same time.

If we had a buck for every bill change on the market, we could afford to never sell this. There's a million out there... we own them, we've done them.

The one thing we've never seen and we didn't think was possible was changing both sides of the bill at the exact same time.

We tease Lloyd on staff, joke with him, play pranks with his in-flight meals... but the fact remains, his mind works like no-one elses.

We didn't think he'd ever be able to do this, but Brad knows how creative Lloyd gets when he's hopped up on chocolate, so he sent boxes upon boxes to his door (No kidding, that actually happened). 2 hours and 3 empty boxes later... Blind Man's Bill Change was done and Lloyd devastated the team with it.

The 'BMBC' stands up to scrutiny with a change so fast and fluid, that it's one of the few ultra-visual tricks that fools the camera as much as the eye itself.

In over 1.5 hours of intricate explanations, you'll learn how to do this with the vast variability of currency in circulation today.

But what if you live outside of the US? Easy!

Lloyd will teach you how to get around the famous 'polymer problem', different size bills and even a way to use notes with clear 'windows' through to the other side.

There's no doubt in our minds that Blind Man's Bill Change will become a new classic and until now, we've safely kept it all to ourselves.

Learn BMBC INSTANTLY.

It looks so clean! And it works with any currency~

Reminds me of Extortion by Patrick Kun.

It does look great. One question: Do you have to start with the bill already folded? Or can you show the bill open first and then fold it? Regardless it still looks terrific but just wondering how open you can bill with the bill from the start.

You know, I like it. It's got a fun feel. And it's nice to sometimes rely on non-borrowed bills because the gimmicked way gets you such nice eye candy. On the other hand, not being able to hand out... Obviously it works well. I've always love Skullkracker by Bob Sheets. But this is also priced quite fair I think as well.

You need to start with the bill already folded. Lloyd goes over a couple handling suggestions to make it appear that you are folding the bill in front of them but frankly the best way may be to fold a regular bill and do something else and then come back to it by pulling the folded bill out of your pocket or whatever, which is Lloyd's main suggestion. This aspect is probably the biggest drawback with this effect. But everything else I really like about this.

It wouldn't really make sense to borrow a bill because you're not going to give them a much larger denomination bill back are you?
Personally, I gave up on borrowing bills ages ago because how many people even carry bills with them these days, and then there's the dead time while they get their wallet out and rummage around for a bill they are willing to let you use, and then it's the oldest, scroungiest looking bill imaginable which doesn't look anything like your gimmick. It's just not worth it to me but that's only my opinion.

This is quick, visual, easy to make, and reasonably priced so I think it's good bang for the buck. It's not going to take the magic world by storm but if you can get past how to introduce it then I think it is something you will carry and use. TBH, for me it will most likely be one of those quick things you show to a waitress or cashier and I will pretend to be folding it as I bring it out of my wallet. Just for that it is worth the price to me which is why I bought it.

I was not disappointed in it at all, in fact, I quite like it.

This looks pretty good but fairly big flash in the 10 pound note to 20 pound note

I’ve always enjoyed visual magic. ( who doesn’t ) But it seems like a lot of visual material being released lately, is more for social medial magic than practical. Ideally for camera and not in person. I did see Ryan performing this for some people. ( not everyone is Ryan lol ) It does look super visual. Looks awesome . Just not for my style. If you like social media platform magic, this is for you. And I imagine it would get you a lot of likes and ❤️‘s.


Still cool looking .

It's a cool effect but are you saying that you can't examine the bill before or after the trick?

WOW, looks fantastic, but the fact the bill is not examinable at any point is kind of a letdown.

I was about to buy this but wanted to find out if it can be handed out afterwards (for which I found the answer here). Having it pre-folded is not a huge problem but not being able to hand it out was the deal breaker for me. Mostly because I don't like taking money out to show someone something only to then just put it all away again, I like being practical where I'll take it out, perform something with it, then hand it out as a tip or pay for drinks etc (just the way I am with magic that involves money). It looks like I will stick to Extreme Burn for now. Having said that, this does look absolutely amazing visually (unfortunately just not for me... yet).

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my latest work. I really appreciate it.

To answer the main question most of you have; Can this be handed out immediately? On the download I teach a number of handlings. One of which is how to make the gimmick so that it's removable from the bill. Meaning that you can execute the change and in the process of handing the bill out you steal the small gimmick portion off the bill off. This mean that there's no switch, the bill is handed out immediately and the bill is left totally clean and examinable. It's really easy and the gimmick is perfectly shaped to fit in the palm of the hand. Just follow one of the classic rules of magic; hand the bill out with the same hand the palmed gimmick is in and you're good to go.

As I say in the download, this isn't the way I perform it personally. I've done a solid couple of years of road testing this, so I also teach the most practical and easiest way which is the handling I use 99% of the time. Th download is over 1.5 hours long and I cover pretty much everything you could think of. Theory & reasoning, handlings, construction, alternatives and a plethora of switching/handing out options. I'm really confident that this can fit in anyone's set no matter of skill level or preferences.

If that's helped inform anymore of you to decide if you want to learn and start performing this today, then you can learn it right now:

Man, I continue to just be so proud of this young man. He has become quite a magician and magic creator, one of the very best out there. 😊 And he’s always had a real fascination with money, first coins and now he’s learned actually to “double it!” 😁 Just an amazing bit of wizardry to behold. So clean and effortless...Amazing!

Like all his magical thinkings and creations, this one shows yet more brilliance flowing from a unique mind and all-around great guy. This is one you should be carrying with you everywhere that you want to amaze people on the spot.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
