Yes, Wolfgang, Hughes was the first to introduce this method - later put out by Abbott's with a similar mechanism.

For Halloween I have used different color eyeballs around the glass and a spooky foulard with spiders embossed on it for a cover.

I just picked up one at a flea market that has colored golf balls, not the typical colored wooden billiard balls. The tray has a rim, but not the rail like Abbott's. No idea who made it, but it does work just fine. I'll post a photo later.

Sounds like you have "The 19th Hole" from Daytona Magic.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Here is my twist. I remove the balls and try to bounce them into the shot glass. I ask the college kids if that reminds them of anything? Beer Pong! Of course my wife and I don't drink so in college we came up with "kiss pong" I really liked the game and got pretty good at it so she had to make it tougher- she would secretly choose a ball and I had to make that particular one into the cup. Then she made it tougher and covered the shot glass with the larger glass. Then tougher - she covered the whole thing with a cloth! But "Where there is a will, there is a way!" I would always get the kiss! Twenty five years later and I've still got it!

AETAN BLOOM and JUAN Tamariz are on you tube doing a hilarious version. PM me if you would like to buy one that is custom-made far better than Abbott's quality.


Actually, those two hacks exposed the trick. Took less than a minute to find the video Pete Biro referenced.
