I first started working on the “Three Shell Game” in 1994 when I got my first set of real walnut shells from Davenports. I developed a strong routine with ideas from Giovanni, Phil Cass, Patrick Page and Gary Ouellet. Over the years, I added poker chips (ala Bob Sheets) and the giant shells finale.
I have performed the the routine extensively for tradeshows, hospitality events and parlour-setting private parties. Currently, they are part of my “Close-up & Underground” show that is a formal close-up show.
This was a pet project of mine for the past few months and I thought I would share a review of shells that are currently available on the market (as of this writing, Sep 2010). This review was originally supposed to be part of my “Close-up & Underground” lecture notes but after completing the review I felt it would be a waste if this resource was not available to everyone.
As I have no commercial interest in any of the manufacturers, this is an impartial review of a variety of shells that I have personally owned and worked with since 1994. While I did not have a chance to review every single shell set on the market, I do cover the most popular shells available.
The shells are all photographed under the same lighting conditions and camera so the colours can be seen in consistent relation to each other.
