This dvd is the best helping you out in the game. It teaches all the moves, the ins and outs of the game. Different variations e.t.c. However, what I liek about this dvd is how Sal explains what to do if you are caught in "the move". Also, what to do if they guess correctly, what to do if you think they know the game, what to do if you think they know the game and are wrong. He is very thorough.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
After watching this dvd I was performing it at the table during Christmas Dinner! I performed it on all members of my family, and they only found the pea once. However, that was due to me doing "the move" wrong. I had to practise more.
By the end of the day, I had become one with my shells. This dvd is very good at explaining everything you have to do to become a master at the three shell game, be it with just one hand or two, two shells or three e.t.c
To speak the immortal words of Sal Piacente..."You cannot win!"

This DVD is good. It has some basic stuff in it and it is presented well. Sal does a good job teaching and it's an innovative way to present the material. It's fun. Sal is quite a character. In my opinion, all the School For Scoundrels stuff is far more comprehensive and if you can only buy one or two DVDs I'd buy the SFS stuff first.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

If you want to learn the three shell game from a real pro this is the DVD for you. There is a lot of information on this effect and the street scam point of view of this trick. There is also a lot of practical advice from Sal. This DVD is a great place to start learning the three shell game. Do yourself another favor make sure you have a good set of shells to start with and everything will be better. I started out with cheap ones and then had to get better ones when I realized the power of this effect. Buy the DVD and get a fantastic start on this classic.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

If you have ever wanted to learn to perform the 3 shell game then this is best place to start. Sal takes you through the ins and outs of the game as well as presenting you with a good, usable routine to get you started. This is a classic routine that audiences know and love. If people know you perform this they will request it. It also helps that you can see real Sal perform this for real people to see how slick this game can be.

this is another great value from penguin. it is an easy enough manipulation. However, i dont think it packs as big as cups and balls or even a chop cup. ITs just a personal preference, plus this is a bit touchy depending what surface it is done on

I just purchased this item, and i sat a watched it through. Admittingly i have never heard of Sal Picente, but after watching how he teaches this dvd, i will be looking for more dvd's of his. Firstly, it talks to you on a very direct level, making the undertsnading of the moves very easy. Furthermore, he shows each of the moves numerous times, and also shows them how they would be performed in a live enviroment. I picked up the technique within 10 mins of watching the dvd.
Its just a shame they havent added the three card monte to the dvd as well

I have one thing to say to all of you. Buy this DVD. This is the most informative DVD you will find on the subject. After watching this video the novice, even the extreme novice, can perform this with little practice to get started. My hats off to Sal and Penguin for a great product.

Wow... the flash move is a real killer. Winner every time. No-one can guess it. Great teacher good live footage of the routine being performed. Good routine in total. Do it for entertainment and magic, not a scam. If you're gonna do it as a scam, do it hypothetically like colour monte don't really take their money, because that's harsh, and you're probably being paid to do it anyways. lol
This Is a GREAT DVD!!!!!!!!!! 100 stars Report this review
