If you're looking to learn the very basics of the 3 card monte, and the 3 Shell Game. Then this is
your gem for sure, 5 stars, you'll learn the basics, and a little more. But I feel that it only
taught what it had too, the essential moves that you can find in most books which have these
routines in it. Personally I'd find something else, and dont feel I got my moneys worth.

The DVD's are well done, and somewhat funny in a corny sort of manner. I enjoyed them and learned
the techniques quickly. The Shells and Peas are of good quality and easy to use. Unfortunately
this deal offers a pack of bicycle brand playing cards with a border. On the DVD, Sal Piacente
recommends using the Bee brand playing cards because they do not have a border. The borderless
cards hide the trick better. Otherwise, I would have given this 5 stars.

When I first watched the DVD's, I was a little dissappointed. They were shorter than I expected and
was just like, "Thats it?" I already had a good understanding of the basic moves of both
three-card-monte and the shell game and felt like these were a waste of my money.
watching the DVD's again, and learning a couple of new moves, I realized what little you do learn on
these movies translates to a lot in real performance scenarios. Not only do you learn the moves,
but you also learn the psychology behind the moves and why it works. Plus, you won't use all moves
taught in a single performance. You can use them all, but theres no need to.
There are two
reasons I took a star off. 1) Sal uses cards from a deck of Bee playing cards on the
three-card-monte DVD. If you order this, add a deck of Bee cards to your cart and use the Bicycle
deck provided for other tricks. The Bee deck will help you hide your moves. 2) Although there are
clips of Sal performing both routines in front of an audience, a full routine from beginning to end
would have helped more with knowing how to flow from move to move.

I purchased Sal's set some time ago and also had the pleasure of meeting Sal and watching him give a
game protection seminar at the casino where I worked. He is not only the consumate sleight of hand
artist and one of the most affable, easy-going, nicest guy you'll ever meet, he also has that
Houdiniesque, showmanship persona that comes out in every performance that keeps the spectator
captivated and spellbound. His DVD set is a steal at that price and should be displayed on every
Get it.I have both of vince's videos.However at the time I did not know about this package deal.Add

You want it. Just add it ,you will feel happy when it comes in the mail.
I already knew how to do both the three card monte and the shell game so i did not feel as if i
needed it but i got it for my Halloween bonus and i just want to say that this is a great DVD. I
wish i would have bought it earlier as it not only has the montes but the paper clip monte which is
just great for a magic routine. This DVD will have your friends baffled. Add To Cart
I got this and omg! It was the best purchase I have ever made! Also, I recommend getting the Perfect
3 Shell Game with this product.
This has got to be one of the nicest shell game and three card monte DVDs on the market. Great
quality shells and DVDs. Takes a little practice, but when you get good, you're ready to make some
I waited for this special for months until I had the money for it, then waited for days until it was
in stock, and now that I finally got it, the wait was well worth it. I already tried it on my
co-workers and they all love it and are amazed and have fun with it every time. No doubt should be a
regular item forever at Penguin. The Street Monte is timeless and Sal is excellent and funny. "These
are the bees, this is the honey, this is the one that makes the money!"
