Cups and balls is probably the oldest magic trick that we have come to know. Drawing of conjurers performing this classic is found inside of the pyramids which proves that it was performed thousands of years ago...

Cups & Balls was mainly performed by the oriental street conjurers. From them the art was then taught to the Egyptians. These skillful artist could still be seen in countries like: India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan, Sumatra, Greece and Rome.

In the Cups and Balls Magic by Tom Osborne, Henry Ridgely Evans writes "The Romans called such performers "acetabularri", from the Latin word "acetabulum" which means cup.

This Version of Cups and Balls called Vampire Cups & Balls. It has a glossy black finish to convey the impression of Vampire, The Greatest Evil of all time. Or start with the story of the Black Hole in space, where everything disappears and reappears in another location...with this you then produce your cups and begin the routine.

These are great cups for anyone new to cups and balls. They are soild and are a nice colour. They are large and will fit lemons. It comes with a book that will teach you about the cups and balls routine. But the best part is the price, at this much of a discount, you'd be mad not to buy them.

I don't usually like smaller cups and balls sets, but this one is a keeper for me. The red balls and white balls definitely pop against the black cups (and if you use a dark close-up mat, you are really going to like the difference). The cups are a little on the fragile side in that they do show scuffs when hit together too much though.

Finding a final load is a little tricky but if you go to a pet shop and find the smaller tennis balls for tiny dogs, they fit perfectly in the cups and produce a nice visual ending. The cups are too small for standard tennis balls and a bit too large for a golf ball. You can actually fit a standard pool ball in them perfectly and it fills the space, but they'll make a lot of noise in the loading process. Handballs work as well.

The other drawback is obviously the way they will look against your clothing. If you wear dark clothes it will be easy for the cups to get lost against you. If you work in the dim lighting of a restaurant or bar, they won't stand out like copper or chrome cups would. On the other hand, if you're looking for a small set to practice with or use in well-lit situations, this is a great choice for the price.
