I would greatly appreciate a review or other information regarding 'Russian Roulegg.' The premise is interesting, but the video with the ad has some edits that I wish weren't there! How 'clean' is the actual presentation?

Thank you for your help!

I suspect they were trying to get the word out--before the item was available!

I really like this and think it has huge comedic potential. As well as
it looks like Fun!. I definitely could figure a way to do it however I am ordering it to be supportive of his idea.
Will let you know as soon as it arrive.

John,

Thank you for your posts! I agree with your assessment; it does look like fun!!

I wonder if it is really 'out of stock' or simply 'not available yet.' Please let us know what you find out.

The egg-on-head version of Russian roulette has been discussed before at the Café. Marduke's routining is clearly the "secret" here, which is, I suspect, the reason for the edits.

Hello 'Failed,'

The effect is listed by Murphy's, Hocus-Pocus, Penguin--and I suspect many other dealers.

Hello Potty,

Thank you for your post! I did a quick search, but couldn't find anything relevant. Could you possibly provide a link?

Would someone actually take a bag (whether empty or not) and smash it against a spec's head? I can't see this. However, smashing it between their held-out hands I can see, and still funny (I think . . .)

Those were my thoughts, as well... nothing new here (with the egg), but I'm guessing those interested, are interested in the routining, as you said before.

But one thing that bothers me about this is, wouldn't you/or they know which bag would contain the egg (NOT KNOW WHERE IT'S AT, BUT KNOW WHILE IN THE SMASHING PART OF THE ROUTINE)... WHAT I MEAN IS - when you/or they grab a bag to smash, the egg would obviously add weight to the bag, so if you/or they grab a bag, wouldn't you/or they be able to tell, just from the weight of the bag that bag being held doesn't contain the egg and it's safe to smash?

Jv,

You make an interesting point! I was thinking that I would prefer to have the spectator slightly downstage of the performer, and not able to see the mixing of the bags or the selected bag(s) coming toward him. The comedy of the approaching egg 'crowning' might be enhanced that way!

Ok Folks,

I have had this for a about a day. This is a quick review. I have 4 shows that I WILL be using this in next weekend so I will post how this plays in the real world after these performances.

Regarding the video ad and edits. There is absolutely no reason to have edited the presentation to hide any secrets or routines. The only reasons for edits was to keep it short. The trick is exactly as shown.

You display 4 bags. Three bags are closed and one bag is open as you show the spec an egg and place it in the bag. You close this bag so all bags now look identical. You explain three bags are empty and one has the egg. You mix the bags up and the spec can choose ANY bag they want. There are no forces or switches. ANY bag can be chosen and broke over their head. You crumble the bag up and place in your pocket. You repeat this until your down to your last bag. At this point you open the bag and truly pull the egg from the bag. NO SLEIGHT of hand. You hold the egg in your left hand and crumble the bag and put it in your pocket. At this point you put a glass on the table and place the egg in your left hand into your right hand. You break the egg with your right hand into the glass and drop everything into the glass (shell and all). You can now show both hands completely empty.

This trick is very simple, very clean, and has huge potential. The bags are not gimmicked in anyway. You are supplied with high quality gimmicks that make this easy as pie. If you take care of them they will last a long long time.

For those worried about the weight of the egg, well this simply is not a problem. The egg is simply not heavy enough to be notice. If you don't believe me grab some small bags and an egg and try it out.

I'm very excited to add this to my shows next weekend. This is an effect that you can add to your show the same day. It's that simple. I'm looking forward to the comedy and hopefully strong reactions from the kids.

Feel free to pm me.

Think I'll pick this up, its sounds like a really fun and clever routine and if done right as in Mike's review, it will be a winner for sure. And yes, it actually sounds like a bargain for the gimmicks, not to mention supporting the creator

Just get it from Penguin, they have a reasonable shipping price to Indonesia. At the end of the day, you'll pay a lot cheaper than what the shops charge in Indonesia Smile

Just my 2 cents.
