I also have the "Phil Cass Video". It should have the same content as the dvd except may be the additional routine "Fishermen's Wharf Special" which is on the tape.
To the shell game routine: It's the Supershells routine by Gary Ouellet. But it's a 20 (!) minutes act. Phil Cass plays against an audience member with real money (that is what he tells and he sounds serious) and that guy looses 100 $ - he is so shure that he will win!
This routine is a great example of psychology in a scam and audience management. And Phil Cass is a strange guy.
If you are interested in polishing your shell game routine buy this disc.

I think this is a very important routine by a fine artist. Phil has a very unique way of looking at the presentation of the shells, and it will be thought-provoking and stimulating for anyone working on a shell game exhibition. I am not sure many people would want to try to emulate this presentation, it requires someone with real performing talent and an edgy sense of humor. But watching Phil's performance gave me a lot of new ways of looking at things. It changed my presentations.

SO MR Haydin, do you feel this dvd could compliment your SFS shell dvd? I already have yours, great dvd, I just want to expand my horizons--

It would be a very nice complement. It may open new presentation possibilities for you.

BTW, had any luck with the "Old Army Game" with your buddies?

Old army Game? Im not sure what is it you are refering to, but if is the shell, I'm still working on it, I don't like to present things that I have not practiced and get a good solid routine with all outs, and it usually takes at least 4-5 months for me to get to that level--- but so far I'm even impressing myself so guess it's an improvement!

The "other magician's routine" that Phil uses is Gary Ouellette's Supershells routine. He states that from the outset. If you have the Supershells routine, you will find some good ways of enhancing the communication with a larger audience than you normally have with a shell game.

Almost all shell game routines have some material from other performers in them. There is not much of a way you can get around that. Jack Chanin published the first book on the Shell Game in 1934, and every book since that has had some material from that book in it. You can't keep from doing that, really. The shells work one way, basically.

The Phil Cass routine is a keeper.

As a fellow Aussie, Phil Cass style and humour is great in our country. I have the VHS version and although I would never perform his way he has some great ideas and does make you think how you will present the three shell game. If you perform the three shell game its worth having

Stay with it to 3:40, because Phil adds impossibility to it at that point.

Phil's DVD is:

a. the most entertaining shell game. period.
b. not for the beginner.
c. probably not practical in all situations.
d. worth buying just to be amazed at the entertainment factor.


I HIGHLY recommend Bob Kohler's routine for a beginner because it is wonderful and teaches everything you need to know and more.
It teaches a lot of things that are really understated or even ignored as far as psychology go. it's a flawless routine, IMO.

I would then recommend the offerings by SFS/Sheets and Patrick Page to expand on what you know.
I would also recommend the booklet on "Patterns" by Peter Woerde I bought it and really like it.

Lastly I would recommend you NOT purchase the penquin dvd by Jay Nozebleeda. It's beyond awful in so many ways.

I'm very late to the party on this one, but Phil Cass's version is the funniest, most *entertaining* version I have ever seen. The psychology behind how he gets a spectator to go from a $1 bet to something much larger is worth the asking price alone. I had it on VHS, and I want to get back into it, so I am buying it again on DVD - which should tell you something!
