What are the best slight of hand tricks for the 3 shell game. Is it just passing the ball between the cups, or is there anouther good method?

I highly recommend Bob Sheet - Bob's 3 Shell Boot Camp. This video provides a solid "magical" routine, more so than a challenge to the spectator. What was helpful to me is that the routine and video are specifically constructed to get a newbee started with the shells, and provides a solid, entertaining routine

Even though I almost exclusively use Leo Smetsers shells and a different grip, I 100% agree that the Bob Sheet Boot Camp taught by Glenn Morphew is the best way to learn. Followed by the School for Scoundrels dvd's as you advance.

Just recieved a set of the "Katharina" shells from Michael Stehle. WOW! These are the prettiest shells I've ever seen. They are larger than your typical street shell, but are the perfect size and weight. They handle extremely smooth and to me, I don't think it gets any better than this. Hands down the best purchase I've made in years. I won't ever buy shells from anywhere else.

Agreed! I've purchased several of his offerings - bowler hats, thimble rigs, gold diggers, Black Sea, etc. His work is second to none!

Thanks to everyone who has used Bob's 3 Shell Boot Camp and for their hearty endorsements of the drill, the process, and the 2 routines taught on the 1 hr and 36 min instructional DVD. The Boot Camp kit was never designed to be released to the masses via a large distribution network, so it isn't the easiest thing to find.

For anyone interested in learning more about the Boot Camp kit or bundle, please visit my shop at www.povmagician.com ...thanks.

All the best,
Glenn

I just got a print copy of Ralph Read's "the Three Shell Game".
Thirty three routines, and no filler. Traffic bargain.
