Phil Cass is one of the leading performers in Australia. A recipient of the "Australian Variety Artist's 'Mo' Award" as "The Best Speciality Act In Australia" for seven consecutive years he has also won awards for his close-up and comedy magic shows.

This DVD features Phil performing and explaining his Pea & Shell Game routine that is widely considered as one of the best Shell Game routines ever created.

Commonly referred to as the Shell Game it is a magical routine based on the classic con game using three walnut shells and one small pea. The mark tries to guess which shell the pea is under, and they always lose. Phil has made this the mainstay of his close-up work for many years and those willing to study his presentation, technique and timing will have a complete 20-minute act added to their repertoire. Just wait until you see the killer climax.

In addition to the techniques of the routine Phil discusses at length the psychology of how to make the routine interesting, challenging, confrontational and of course entertaining.

"The most commercial and magical Pea & Shell Game I've ever seen... and I've seen 'em all!"
...Roger Klause

"No question, it is one of the best 'presentations' I have seen on the scam and how he NAILS the spectator is a lesson in psychology one could learn much from."
...Pete Biro

"Phil's wonderfully edgy showmanship is very fun to watch. Because of the psychological push and shove between the performer and his mark, it plays for a bigger room than most routines can. It is by far one of the most different and original presentations I have seen."
...Whit Haydn, School for Scoundrels

Original release date: DVD: July 2005, VHS: 1998. Running time: Approximately 65 minutes.

This is a great DVD. Phil Cass shows off his unique approach to the old shell game. Phil's whole routine and explanation is included. Phil cites Gary Oulette's "Super Shells" book as his source for learning the mechanics of the routine. Phil teaches the basic handling with a few subtleties. If you are looking for a DVD that shows you every move and every subtlety then maybe this isn't for you. However the routine is excellent and Phil teaches you everything you need to get started.
The Bonus effect "Fisherman's Wharf" is a fantastic effect that could be adapted to many other uses. Chances are you already have the required gimmick. if not pick up a thumb tip with your order.
