The Three Shell Game
by Tom Osbourne
PDF Instant Download $4.95 

One of the best books ever written on the shell game. Tom Osborne had the real inside dope on the moves, psychology and ruses of the street artists who challenged one and all to “follow the little pea.”

This manuscript contains not only magician routines and ideas, but also the real work of scam artists. To appreciate it, you have to pay close attention and try to understand the goals, strategies and psychology of the con man. This is a must have resource for anyone who wants to master the shells.

Supershells by Gary Oullet $12.95

Hailed by some as “The best kept secret in magic!”, Supershells details what is undoubtedly the finest presentation for the three shell game ever published. What makes it stand out from the crowd is the killer challenge ending! Effect: The magician hides a pea under one of three walnut shells, moves them around, and regardless of which shell the spectator chooses, he cannot find the pea! This is repeated twice under increasingly impossible conditions, and still the spectator is unable to find the pea no matter how certain he is! Finally, the spectator covers the pea himself with a shell, then puts a flower pot saucer over the shell, and finally covers that with an inverted bowl! An empty shell is covered with a clear glass, and even though the spectator holds both the bowl and glass, the pea still jumps from one to the other!
