So i was scanning through penguin for some "Russian Roulette" effects (where you hide a nail or any pointy object under a cup and you smash your hand down on the cups but leave the one with the nail in it) and I think i just thought of a way to do it with something i already had. Has anyone ever done this effect with PK ring?

If the nail goes straight to the top of the cup then you shouldn't have a problem. Someone tell me what you think.

Also, I don't have any use for my ring. If anyone knows of a good book/DVD for the ring, would you please let me know. Thanks!!

That has already been done.

It's called "Spike."

(Does this count as exposure? :? )

I think that does. But David Regal pretty much said the same thing in his review on RMQ I believe.

RMQ reviews are hardly "exposure." Laypeople don't see those DVDs, only magicians who paid for them. Spike works because of the heavy mass of metal. A nail probably won't work the same, plus being much less impressive. And even if it did work, why? Why risk bodily injury when there are other ways that are 100% safe and only look dangerous?

Well I wasn't really the one who exposed the method. Maloney asked a question involving the method, and I told him it has been thought of, and marketed.
So I was actually just answering his question...

Im sure it will be hard because if you get too close then the cup might move but if you go to far, you might miss. i have a version to open my mentalism show, its basically luke jermays from his book whos name i dont remember. its good but i dont use the nail. instead i use the presentation of when you are scared you are easily predictable so when they know you might slam your hand down and all that good stuff

The coral fang has a version of the dangerous monty that's full proof. It's designed for stage but could easilly be adapted to close up with some clever wording.
