Topic: 3 Disk Monte Moves
Message: Posted by: Max T. Oz (May 10, 2020 10:30AM)
A lot of us have a little spare time on our hands now....so I just published a video on many moves for 3 Disk Monte.

No explanation, but if you're knowledgeable in card & coin sleights, you'll get the idea.

Hopefully it'll inspire a routine or two.


Originally was planning to film my full routine this summer and publish/market it.....but those plans are scrapped due to the whole Covid thing now.

At the end, just a quick clip of moi, 3 shell game, to show you can get quite a bit entertainment out of just one move.

Okay, grab some disks if you have'em & toss away :-)

What Max is doing with the 3 Disk Monte goes way beyond what can be done with the 3 Card Monte.

Mr.Bones, Al, Sal, Steve, Mandy...Thanx Gents.
I only wish I had Vid of my full Disk routine on the street. It can play amazingly well.
As I often mention, the moves are just moves. But often necessary to reach our goal.
The biggest break thru I had with the Disks was my routine. And using many of these moves to get there.

Mixing the disks up and fooling the spectator, gets repetitive after a few goes.

It's the interaction with the player and the audience that brings it to life.

However, after a few goes, and I've established that I can make the winning disk be anywhere I want...I start telling the spectator where the winning disk is. Or do I? So the question isn't whether the disk is a winner or loser...but whether I'm tellng the truth or lieing. And perhaps I get him to change his mind. This all is where the comedy and fun begins. There sting is gone and I can get the whole audience involved.

Phil Cass does some of this in his Shell & Pea game. Very much worth your study.

I use the Pro Set from 3 Shell Al. This has an extra winner. And it is bringing the extra winner in and out of play that allows one to literally do the impossible and make the spectator a winner or loser, your choice.

At the moment, this summer looks like a write off. I was set to do some serious filming at events but everything and I mean everything is pretty well cancelled at this point in time.

Oh well, just wait til 2021. By that time, with all the practice, we're gonna all be flawless :-)

May I ask for your kind recommendation on peas (been trying many materials like blue tack, cut sponge, rubber band ball ) ?

Another excellent video. The more I see you work these disks the more I like them. 3 Shell Al should probably hire you to do demo videos for his site.
