The Perfect 3 Shell Game FINALLY! A high-performance set of shells that handles well on the STREETS. This is YOUR CHANCE to learn this crowd pleaser and get a top quality set of shells for only $ 9.95. Highly recommended!
Price: $12.95
Out of stock.



Why are they perfect? GREAT QUESTION!

#1: They're the first shells ever made in elastomeric resin. What's the difference? Elastomeric resin is what calculator keys are made of. It's like regular plastic, but it's just a bit more rubbery. That makes our shells easier to grip and gives them SUPERIOR feel.

#2: Our shells are molded from real New England Large Walnuts. The molds are then taken to the top shell game magicians in the world. Secret design features are added to make the shells glide, rock, and grip perfectly. In short, we take the best shells found in nature and add the special features expert magicians look for to create "The Perfect Shells".

#3: Better peas! Our peas are TACKY. That means if you drop one during performance it won't roll on the floor. Try it. Roll it, drop it, push it, spin it. Our pea just stops and waits for you to pick it up! That's a HUGE benefit for real workers who are going to be using these shells every day. You don't want to be crawling around on the floor chasing peas when you're getting paid to perform.

Good for the $$ Report this review

This was the first set of Shells that I purchased and I used them until I realized an investment in better ones was a good idea. I have used these still on occasion when I forgot my other ones also available from Penguin. If you are starting out or are not sure if this is a trick you will like this is a good set that will introduce you to the game. I am a big fan of the shell game and have gotten good mileage from it particularly as a trade show effect. This is a draw them in effect. Add to cart and decide for your self if this is for you.

These are good quality shells. Don't let the price fool you. They are excellent and get the job done. If you haven't tried the shell game before then this is definitely the best set to get, but even if you are an experienced shell gamer this is a good quality set. I still use the same set that I have had for a couple years and they look as good as new.

This is a classic magic trick...and con game. The shells are well constructed, and the instructional video is very good, as it teaches you many useful moves. If your looking for a decent 3 shell game, then this one is very affordable.

You've seen this effect in countless movies. The calm, cool operator manipulates the pea under the shell to his advantage. I love to build the spectators confidence by letting them win on occasion.

A good introduction to a classic trick. Report this review

For $10 you actually get some fairly decent shells; they are plastic and a bit cheap but the most important thing about this trick is the performance and with the excellent tutorial you get everything you need to start performing this classic.

If you're serious about adding the 3 shell game to your act though I would splash out and buy some slightly more classy looking shells.

This trick is a classic. Everyone has heard about it, but few have actually seen it done. For only $10, here is your chance to make that happen. The handling is so smooth and natural that it cuts the practice time to a minimum. It is very easily done and packs a big punch. The only downside is that if you go too long, people can begin to predict where the pea is rather than where it should be.

I can see how most would like this trick! But I think I got a defective set. Mine had a green stain on the side of one of the shells. You might think it's no big deal but I like to make the effect look more like it's just a "finding the pea" game and not so much a magic trick. Let me explain... when the shells all look identical, no one knows really thinks it's a magic trick with a secret. They think it's just a hard game. (which is want I want... that way there is little suspicion.) But when some of the shells look different (the green stain), they know that the pea moved. They would be able to tell that it's just magic trick.... magic trick that they they now know that they can't win. Other than that the set was pretty good. Although after a while the peas lose there tackyness. They still work but it's not as easy.

These Shells Really Are Perfect,I Love Them,
The Peas However Are Good And Bad,The Good Thing Is They Are Tacky And Don't Move When You Drop Them,The Bad Thing Is
You Cant Move The Shell Sideways Unless You Have A Closeup Pad "The Penguin Ones Are Great" Because Of The Tacky Pea.

So I Give The Shells 5 Stars,And The Peas 4.

Good Idea to buy Report this review

This is a very good trick. Will get very good response from nearly anyone. Watch out for people who know how it works. The sleight of hand is tricky, but well worth it.
Have fun with it!
