"The Hanxamean approch to the 3 shell game" has a few good ideas. There are some good solid endings that are not just the transpo of the pea. It also has a nice handling of the "Pea Can" during a routine. It has some original moves in it as well.

Someone's new product, Bill, haven't seen it to say if it is worthwhile or not. Time will tell.

My favorite is Gary Ouellet's "Supershells". Great routine! I use the SFS
Street Shells.

Wow. I was stunned that the first posts the hated the Cass Routine.

Admitedly, I hated the video... the first 5 minutes or so.
I thought what the hell is this guy doing. Cliches, insults, etc.

Then upon the 5th or so viewing, it all came to me what he was doing.

As I've stated in recent posts, the finale is INSANE! Fantastic.

A must have video. I have a few extra if you can't find one at you local shop.

Ill jump along with the rest of the group, Mr Cass's routine is a first class act! its definately a show on psychology, where it makes it no about "following the pea" but about putting different thoughts in ( makes a tell tale move, but was it on purpose, or was it an accident?) and it might not fit everyone's persona. But it definately takes the audience for a spin.

The idea for using the Pea Can to switch out hard and soft peas should be credited to Erik Anderson who described it some time ago on this and on the Scoundrels Forum board.

The pea under the glass is an ending that Glenn Bishop published long ago.

I think the stack of shells is a rather odd and unsatisfactory ending, that leaves everyone in the audience waiting their turn to examine the "stack" in order to figure out "what just happened?" It is a gratuitous surprise without logic.

There are a few clever handlings of standard moves in the "The Hanxamean Approch to the 3 Shell Game", but nothing really groundbreaking or completely new.

The Stack of Shells reminds me of the "stack of cups" from the Ronjo cups and coins set.

You should also check out the whole forum. Whit gives a lot of great shell/ street con info all over the forum. And you should stop by his web site and download the video of Whit doing a shell routine at the magic castle.

Great footage and one of the best presented shell routines I have ever seen!

I remember Giovanni's Shellshocked routine as being very effective, but cannot recall whether or not it was just a variation of the Ouellet routine.

I'd rather see Cass's "real" routine any day than hear another BS patter story about the county fair or your grampaw teaching you a lesson when you were a kid.

Cass uses the Oullet routine (a brilliant handling) and dresses it up with an intense presentation that audiences love. Well LAY audiences, anyway. On the other hand, when Oullet does the routine on the Revelations tapes, it's truly soporific. (Sorry Gary - I enjoyed your book, though).

I've also seen Cass do this routine many times for lay audiences and a couple of times at conventions, and it's really one of the greatest routines ever - it's truly a clash of wills and has some very funny moments too. All you have to do is look at the audience to see they are lapping it up. But magicians get this puritannical self-denial thing happening - "oh how shocking!" Magicians also seem to conveniently forget that Cass actually thanks the "sucker" and makes them look like a hero for putting up with the pressure.

Thank goodness for people like Phil Cass who push the boundaries and ensure magic (some magic) is contemporary and thrilling.

"Hope this helps!" (LOL)

Three years later but....I agree with Andrew 100%

I've people find that video shocking they should see his stand up act@
