Three Shell Game

Three Shell Game at the Raffles Hotel

  • Event: Schneider Electric Conference Conference Dinner – September 26 – 150 guests
  • Venue: Raffles Hotel
  • Package:  Three Shell Game Demonstration

The shell game (also known as Thimblerig, Three shells and a pea, the old army game) is demoed as a gambling game, but in reality, when a wager for money is made, it is almost always a swindle to get your money. The shell game dates back at least to Ancient Greece and is still played in the bigger Cities all over the world.

I have used the game/trick in my close-up shows before but it requires a table and in cocktail setting I never bring one. At the reception I was allocated a fixed spot and I only did this trick during the evening. Since the game is known by almost anyone it is a great conversation starter. No matter who your audience is, almost always you have someone who has lost money in the game.

If you ever see a guy on streets moving three matchbox drawers, bottle caps, walnut shells etc. around stay away and what it from a distance.
