Hey, I've been getting into the cups and balls, and I was wondering if you could help me expand the number of tricks I can do with them. Links to videos is appreciated, but just the name of the trick is fine.
Here are the tricks I know:
Classic "Penetrating Ball"
Transporting Ball (from cup to cup)
Fooling around with the balls and wand.
That's really all I know folks, so I'd like to know more stuff to do with this set. The little kiddies love it!

Michael Ammar's book, "The Complete Cups and Balls". Has all the "tricks" from Dai Vernon's routine and a raft of other sequences between it's pages. Many consider it to be the the best source of information. For twenty-two dollars L&L publishing has the pdf of that book for sale. You can find it here.

He also has two DVDs that cover the information well, I'm told. I think the pdf is probably your best bet.

PS, I think you should be careful fooling around with your wand, in public.

I have Ammar's book (pdf) and videos as well; both are excellent. Start with the book, learn the basics, and you will do well.

You can get a lot of ideas by watching someone who has done the work and created his own amazing routine, too.

Kent is too modest.
If Motley Mage hadn't mentioned the Fun Shop routine, I would have.
Superb work from a true Gent.
