What are the big advantages of using 2 peas in the 3 shell game?

Oh man. It's hard to even begin to describe. You're one ahead in the game first of all. They're only aware of one pea. You can accidentally "flash" a pea and narrow down their choice to two shells...like if it's not this one it has to be that one while you are going to reveal the pea in the third shell which was TOTALLY out of the question. Also, if they guess the correct shell, you can simply reveal the pea in a different shell very cleanly. They're only aware of one and it's so deceptive. Check out the Bob Sheets routine on Absolutely Nuts. It's fast paced and very good. I use it in my restaurant. I did the shell game for close to 5 hours yesterday at a grand opening of a Commerce Bank. It was the main staple of my "walkaround". I now have a rolling table so I just set up a station. The shell game was probably one of the best crowd builders because it's familiar, everyone thinks they can follow it, and people literally scream out loud in disbelief so it gathers more people. I'm sure Whit will jump in here soon to talk more about the shell game. Good luck and happy hunting!

Sheets DVD "Absolutely Nuts" is the only thing out there right now that goes deeply into the two pea idea.

Bob and I will be focused on this completely in our next dvd in the S4S series.

I have the three shell monte dvd from penguin magic. Overall...unimpressive. Can't say I'm a fan of Sal's teaching style.

Why? I thought it was very impressive. Sal is in fact, one of the very best out there on the subject. I thought Sal's teaching was very, very clear, unless you don't know how to follow instructions.

The two pea idea is SO deceptive.

Even worse, it's a Magic Maker's production. Smile

It's a shame too, it's actually not that bad... for a beginner. I still prefer Kohler's as it teaches a "routine" instead of just the moves.

If you want to see a good example of shells done badly, go to the Penguin Theater forum. One kid tries to emulate Sal, down to some of the bad jokes. It shows what happens when people concentrate just on the "moves" and not the whole package.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
