Hello guys all magical mood! I first hear about this trick - somebody has information on this trick.
This is China's version of the Three Shell Game or the Three Card Monte Game. It is played with three sticks held between the fingers of one hand. One stick has a little string tied to it. The task for the spectator is to identify the stick with the string. As you can imagine this is a crooked game and the performer decides when he lets you win. This game was brought by Ching Ling Foo to America in 1899.

This sounds interesting,But $10 for a 4 page document is too much for me.

I can understand your perspective. I myself have paid $10 for one page and been very pleased. If it's something that ends up in your repertoire, $10 is cheap i.m.o.

I agree that $ 10 is a small investment - just wondering how it can work in today's real world - I'm going to buy it at the end of the month. Perhaps someone has more information. Smile

It is actually a 2-page document. The two other pages are the cover and the declaimer stuff. Not much to it even on the two document pages.

The main content! Tell me this is more practical material or historical? Smile Smile

It is a little of both. It might be useful for someone that wants something easy to carry with them for a quick type trick.

This was written by brick tilley,a writer on the MARK WILSON COURSE.he has the rare ability to convey the most information with the least amount of words.no filler,no puffing.i have this booklet.worth the $10 to have something different that needs no table.excellent illustrations.am very pleased with the material.
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.
