Modern update on an ancient classic!


Even the ancient Persians enjoyed magic!

Everyone knows the famous Three Shell Game.
That's the one where the magician hides a pea under one of three walnut shells, then mixes the shells around, and the spectator has to guess which shell is hiding the pea.

Secret Cups is the same idea, only using three identical silver color cups to hide a bell-shaped wood pawn.
And in this version, the SPECTATOR does the hiding, and it is up to the magician to find the pawn!

The game is simple and quick:
The magician (that's YOU!) turns his back.
The spectator hides the pawn under one of the three cups.
The spectator can even scramble the cups around to change their position.
But as soon as you turn back around, you INSTANTLY know which cup hides the pawn!
You don't have to touch the cups EVER!
And you can repeat the effect immediately with no fussy resetting!

The Persians had a lot of fun with this effect a thousand or so years ago.
And now YOU can make this magic classic part of your own closeup routine!
